Vinyl Wallpaper: Hanging Process

Vinyl Wallpaper: Hanging Process

Though new and new materials to decorate walls are appearing, Vinyl Wallpaper doesn’t lose its popularity. Below, we offer you a guide on how to paste Vinyl Wallpaper.

At first sight, the vinyl wallpaper hanging process may seem rather hard, but, in practice, it’s not.
As always before wallpapering, we must prepare the wall space carefully before covering it with Vinyl Wallpaper, too.
It’s important to get rid of the previous wallpaper, different bumps, and other defects on the wall-face first. Make sure the wall-face is smooth enough. Then a specific priming coat should be applied against the wall. We recommend that you decide on a primer intended to treat the surface before gluing wallpaper or a different primer but with a deep penetration feature. Sometimes, a wallcovering paste, you intend to use, may be applied as priming coating. For instance, the Slavyanski Wallpaper was manufactured in such a way that it may be applied as both paste and primer. Thus, you can prime and hang using only one product. No need to waste money on buying two or more.

While wallpapering, people usually have concerns about the risks that all their work will be in vain if the wallpaper is spoiled with any organic growth. So that neither mold nor moisture occurs underneath the wallcovering, one can treat the wall area with a fungicidal solution against mold, algae, and other organic growths before you start wallpapering. However, it’s not obligatory since the vinyl wallpaper is engineered in such a way that it prevents the growth of mold and mildew at once. So we’ve taken care of your confidence in success!

When hanging Vinyl Wallpaper, one should use the adhesive aimed specifically for Vinyl Wallpaper or a multipurpose paste suitable for all types of wallpapers. For instance, THIS glue will work out perfectly.

The width of the Vinyl Wallpaper may be 1 m (44"). This fact not only significantly decreases the number of stripes needed to hang but also the number of joints between them. Plus, it will take you less time for hanging wide wallpaper than a narrow one. Moreover, if you’re assisted in the process, then it will be easier and more convenient for you to use wide wallpaper.
As a matter of fact, the procedure of Vinyl Wallpaper hanging doesn’t differ much from the one related to any other type of wallpaper. A few inches in the upper and lower parts of the stripes should always be left for trimming.

Side-to-side - this is how the Vinyl Wallpaper needs to be pasted. Remember that and, when hanging the vinyl wallpaper, make sure you’re following the right design to achieve the best results.
Now it’s time to cut the wallpaper strips, put them on an even surface with their face down and apply the adhesive accurately. Don’t use a hard brush, do it rather with a soft one.
Choosing the Paper-Based Vinyl Wallpaper as interior decoration, one is expected to apply the paste onto the wall together with the wallcovering. Don’t forget to glue them both! Besides, be very careful and try not to let the glue appear on the front side of the strip. Yet, if the adhesive did get there, wipe it off using a soft cloth right away. You’d better hurry up with that since many adhesives are unlikely to be removed after drying. That’s why you’d better be very attentive and accurate. Another way out for you is the paste, we recommend you because it can be easily removed simply by using a damp cloth (Look for it HERE).

Your working procedure with Vinyl Wallpaper on a non-woven base will progress much easier since in this case, it is exclusively the wall-face you paste. Afterward, the wallpaper can be hung onto the covered wall. The stripes should be extended from the ceiling to the floor. Make sure it’s laid smoothly. If you notice air bubbles, apply an ad-hoc brush so that to smooth that stripe and get rid of the bubbles.
All in all, it’s not very hard to hang the vinyl wallpaper. On top of that, this process is within the scope of everyone’s abilities!
