Wallpapering is easier than you think if you follow a few tips. For beginners: Use ingrain wallpaper or fleece wallpaper. They are forgiving of slight inaccuracies. Also, don’t forget: Four hands are better than two.


Calculate how many rolls of wallpaper you need. To be safe, make a somewhat generous estimate, so that you can correct any slight mishaps.


The subsurface on which the wallpaper is to be applied should be dry, clean and flat. The work you put into stripping the old wallpaper and evening out bumps with putty will only make the result better.


Once the subsurface is prepared, cut the strips of wallpaper to length. Important: Add approximately ten centimetres to the required strip length. You can save time by using the first strip as a sample for all subsequent strips.


Mix the paste as indicated on the packet and leave it to expand. Lay the wallpaper strips with the reverse facing upwards on the trestle table. Then apply the paste from the middle to both ends generously and evenly and fold up the wallpaper strips. Only prepare a number of strips that you can hang in the next quarter of an hour, otherwise the paste will become too dry (observe manufacturer’s specifications).


Before fitting the first strip, it is advisable to use a plumb-line, spirit level or cross-line laser level. This makes alignment easier and prevents a slanted overall result on uneven walls. Press on the wallpaper carefully and smooth it out from the middle outwards using a brush. Each of the next strips starts where the previous one ends.
