How to Install Removable Wallpaper

Spread the love

Removable wallpaper is a growing trend in the home decor industry and a great solution for renters, apartment dwellers and anyone who wants to experiment with an accent wall but doesn’t want to commit to a full room design. It’s also less costly than traditional wallpaper and doesn’t require messy pastes or chemicals.

However, before you jump into hanging this fun and easy-to-install style of wallpaper, it’s important to understand what it is and how it works so you can make an informed decision about whether or not this is the best option for you.

This wallpaper is designed to adhere to a smooth, primed and painted wall surface with a satin or semi-gloss finish. It’s not suitable for textured surfaces or in bathrooms or laundry rooms because the temperature and humidity can cause it to loosen over time.

First, measure your wall and purchase a few extra inches of wallpaper for mistakes and to accommodate tricky areas such as windows and doors. When it’s time to apply the first strip, simply peel off enough of the paper backing so you can line up the pattern and stick it to your wall. Once the strip is down, gently smooth it into place with your hands or a straight object like a ruler or a smoothing tool. If you notice any air bubbles, prick them with a pin to release the air and create a flat, even surface.

Continue applying the rest of your wallpaper, leaving a few inches of overlap at the top (since buildings and walls are never perfectly square). When you’re finished, trim the excess with a utility knife blade.
