We can provide you with wallpaper samples to try the wallpaper at home by pinning it on the wall to see how it looks during the day and at night.
Although there are thousands of colours, textures and designs to choose from, in DIY terms, there are essentially three types of wallpapers (and how they stick to the wall).
Pre-pasted – this means that the adhesive is already on the back of the paper.
Un-pasted paper – which means that the paste needs to be applied to the paper.
Paste-the-wall – meaning that the paste (also called adhesive) is put on to the wall rather than the paper.
All paper is easy to hang if you and the walls are well prepared, and you follow the instructions for the type of paper you are using. The key steps before you start wallpapering are:
1. Read the instructions on the wallpaper roll label so you know what type of paper it is and what the manufacturer recommends when it comes to hanging it.
It also pays to check with us first as to which one of the three methods of installation your paper requires.
2. Make sure you have all the tools you need.
3. Careful preparation of the wall surface is the most important part. Take the time to fo this carefully as it will make it easier to hang the paper and to get the best result.
