5 insider tips for wallpapering:

  • Keep an eye on the production number:
    Look at the production number on the wallpaper roll to ensure that all rolls have the same pattern and color.
  • Determine your requirements:
    Measure your walls accurately and buy enough wallpaper. It's better to buy a little more to be on the safe side!
  • Use fresh cutter blades:
    Change your cutter blades regularly to make clean cuts and avoid tears.
  • Keep the inserts:
    Keep the inserts from the wallpaper rolls. They often contain important information, such as pattern repetitions.
  • Use up leftover wallpaper:
    You can use leftover wallpaper for small repairs or creative projects. So don't throw it away!

8 common mistakes to avoid

  • Order enough wallpaper:
    Order a little more wallpaper to make sure you have enough and there are no color differences.
  • Note the production number:
    All rolls should have the same production number, otherwise colors may be different.
  • Avoid creasing:
    Make sure that you apply the wallpaper to the wall without creases. Wrinkles don't look nice!
  • Imprecise work:
    Be precise when wallpapering. The patterns should match up well and the edges should be clean.
  • Using too little paste:
    If you use too little paste, the wallpaper may come loose. So it's better to use a little more!
  • Avoid gaps:
    The wallpaper panels should fit together well so that there are no gaps.
  • Mix the paste correctly:
    Mix the paste exactly as instructed so that there are no lumps and it sticks well.
  • Work cleanly:
    Remove excess paste and clean everything so that the end result looks nice.
