How to paperhanging the non-woven wallpaper?

A long-known factor is that non-woven wallpapers have a lot of pluses: they are easy in working, washable, they are very durable, their base can withstand the entire strip, therefore, they will not change their appearance and will not shrink, after you do the process of paperhanging. You can even hang on the non-woven wallpaper by yourself. We suggest that you pay special attention to wide wallpapers - 1 meter (or 33 feet). Their huge advantage is that you can hang on them very quickly, in contrast to narrow ones. Plus, you do not have to make any special efforts to glue the edges of such wallpapers; they already stick well, unlike other kinds of coverings.

You can appreciate all these advantages when you try to hang on non-woven wallpaper.

First of all, it is not necessary to prepare the walls for gluing. They just should be as smooth and free of defects as possible otherwise, wallpapers will not look beautiful on the walls. Although, this covering can hide small defects on the walls, so even if there are small holes on your walls, wallpaper will smooth out everything.
Secondly, you need to be sure of the dryness of the walls. Then they can prime it, which in turn requires careful cleaning of dust. If the walls are well primed they will not absorb the glue as much. And this will lead to the fact that the wallpaper will stick better to the wall. Another advantage of priming scenes is that the next time you apply new wallpaper, you can save time and effort. We advise you to use the glue of our production - "Unique" for gluing wallpaper, which is suitable for all types of coatings and can also replace the primer. All the necessary information can be found on its packaging. Buy it directly on our website online.
The stage number three is in measurements. You need to measure the height of the walls, be sure to measure each wall separately. Measure it from ceiling to floor. If you would like to use decoration elements such as a strip or border on top, measure the height from the floor to its border.

After measuring the height, divide 5-10 cm (3-4 inches) in reserve. Next, you can start cutting the required number of strips of wallpaper. Do not forget about the pattern (if there is any) seams must match correctly.
The next step is to measure 1 meter from the corner of the wall, from which paperhanging will begin. You need to attach the tape with a bolt, at a distance of 1 meter, to obtain a clear strip (vertical), or use a testing level for this purpose. Next, we apply a pasty mass. Hanging on non-woven wallpaper stock up on special glue. You can also choose universal glue for all types of wallpaper on our website.

The fourth step is wallpapering! Be sure to make sure the strip you created is clearly at a 90 degree angle to the floor. There is no need to start from the corner of the room and glue the wallpaper following this line and angle because not all the walls are so straight, and all the other strips of wallpaper will not be entirely straight and on the contrary, it will not look very beautiful. Therefore, you need a testing level. If it will indicate that the corner of your room is not right, use a strip of wallpaper with excess, expressed from the side where the corner is located. So, it will be possible to get a straight line, with perfect outlines, which you will need in the future. It serves as a kind of reference point.

Point number five - tidy up the wallpaper! Check that all sides are facing towards the reference line. Smooth the glued strip immediately after application. For these purposes, you need to have a spatula, roller, and a piece of cloth in your arsenal. After paperhanging, carefully dispose of the excess wallpaper. This can be done with a wide metal spatula and a knife. Using this technique, you will remove excess parts of the wallpaper from the top and bottom.

For the joints and seams to be invisible, apply the wallpaper tightly to each other. Do not forget to fold the pattern before gluing if it is available. Do not use improperly designed tools for smoothing the wallpaper it may damage its structure.
It is necessary to glue the strip in the corners so that 2-3 cm remains on the other wall.

We wish you good luck with your experiments!
