1.Tools You Might Need:
- Box cutter / scissors
- Ruler / measuring tape
- Wallpaper smoothing tool (*Recommended)
- Level (*if needed)
- Heat gun (*if needed)
(1) Before you begin your project:
- Measure your wall or surfaces and decide how many coverage is required for the project. If you need a huge coverage, please purchase more quantity at once to avoid color difference.
- Make sure the wall is smooth, clean, and dry. If your applying the wall paper to a freshly painted wall, make sure to let paint fully dry and cure for a few days.
- When measuring the size of wallpaper, we recommend leaving out 1~2 inches at the end for better results, especially projects that includes corners. You can trim the excess part with a box cutter afterwards if needed.
(2) During Installation:
- If you’re hanging the wallpaper horizontally, make sure you have someone to help you hold the other end of the paper.
- Start hanging the wallpaper from the top corner of your wall. Keep the wallpaper straight while you slowly peel off the backing paper.
- Make sure not to overlap the wallpapers
- Use a wallpaper smoothing tool to smooth out air bubbles and creases without tearing or marking the wallpaper. A plastic card or a piece of soft cloth may work as well.
- Cut off the excessive part with a box cutter.
For Cabinet doors / bookshelves / kitchen countertops...etc
- If the surface is not completely flat (ex. kitchen cabinet doors), try heating up it up with a heat gun to make it softer, which is easier for shaping.
- Wrap the wallpaper around the corner of the object. Then, cut off the excessive part with a box cutter.
*Note: Slight odor is normal. The smell will disappear if you let the wallpaper sit for several days.
