12.HANGING INSTRUCTIONS 

  • This is high quality wallpaper that should only be hung by a qualified and experienced decorator.  This wallpaper is not vinyl-coated. It is fragile when wet and extra care should be taken during the hanging process 
  • Before hanging check that rolls are undamaged.  
  • Before hanging wallpaper inspect the wallcovering for defects and shading. 
  • Ensure the walls are correctly prepared. 
  • For absorbent surfaces use a recommended primer sealer, always following the manufacturers instructions. 
  • Lining paper should always be hung horizontally using a recommended adhesive and allowed to dry completely. 
  • Apply paste evenly to the paper, paying particular attention that the edges are fully pasted. 
  • Allow to soak for 4-5 minutes for the paper to become supple. Take care not to crease the paper when folding. 
  • Do not over soak as the water content in paste can deteriorate the paper fibre under even the slightest pressure. For this reason do not paste more than one cut length at a time. 
  • Match the pattern at eye level and use a spirit level and faint pencil line to ensure the wallpaper is vertical. 
  • Check which way up the design is before hanging. 
  • Do not allow paste to contaminate the printed surface as the pattern may lift when wiped whilst wet.  
  • If paste does come into contact with the surface of the paper immediately remove it by gently and carefully wiping with a clean, damp sponge. Do not use soap or other cleaners.  
  • Joins should be tightly butted and never overlap. 
  • Dark coloured wallpaper may need the edges coloured with a slightly lighter shade of chalk or pastel to prevent white edges showing. 
  • Where wallpaper rolls are numbered the hanging should be done in sequence.
