How to measure your wall

It's easier than you think!

Take your measuring tape and note down the widest width and the highest height of your wall. We only need wall measurements, don’t include any skirting board or coving. We will print your wallpaper with 3cm extra on each dimension you give us to allow for adequate excess paper for trimming. This will make installation easier and safer.

Walls with obstacles

If there is a door, window or any other obstacle on your wall, make sure to still only measure the walls total width and total height as the obstacles will simply be cut around during hanging. If you are worried your obstacle may impede your murals focal point, contact us and we can reposition you mural to make sure the focus point is visible on your wall.

Installation Guide for Self Adhesive Wallpaper

Preperation:

The tools required for installation are as follows:
• Spirit Level
• Pencil
• Ruler
• Sharp Knife
• Plastic & Felt Applicator (or credit card + cloth!)
• Stepladders (if needed)

The drops are numbered, with number 1 being the left-hand side of the mural. Lay the drops out on the floor print-side up to make sure they are the right way up before beginning install.

Unscrew any sockets or light switches which will be in the way during install - remember to turn the power off at the fuse box first! 

Step 1

Measure 42cm (45cm paper width less the 3cm added for trimming) from the left-hand edge of your wall. Use a spirit level to make sure your ruler or measuring tape is perfectly horizontal when doing so.

Step 2

Draw a vertical line along the full height of your wall at the point we measured in Step 1. Again, use a spirit level to ensure the line is perfectly vertical. 

Tip: Take your time over these first 2 steps - the straighter the first drop, the easier the install!

Step 3

Peel around the top ~25cm of the protective backing off the self-adhesive wallpaper

Step 4

Carefully align the right-hand edge of the first drop to the pencil line we drew in Step 2, leaving around ~3cm overlap at the top for trimming. Press to stick down, and once happy with the position slide your hand over the rest of the exposed adhesive to ensure full adhesion.

Tip: If the position is not perfect, simply peel the paper off the wall and stick it down again until it is!

Step 4.5 (Optional)

Cut into the paper (which will be trimmed later) in the corner if it is catching or in the way.

Step 5

Slowly pull the backing paper off whilst ensuring the right-hand side of the paper lines up to your vertical pencil line all the way down.

If you have any plug sockets or switches, cut a hole where the socket will be on the paper and feed the plug through and stick the paper down around the hole.

Step 6

Line up the second drop with the left-hand edge against the right-hand edge of the first. Match the pattern by eye and apply straight down in the same way as the first.

Repeat Steps 3-6 For Each Subsequent Drop

Step 7

Replace any sockets or switches removed during the installation.

Step 8

Trim the edges using a sharp knife and the included plastic tool. Use the tool to protect the paper whilst trimming the excess paper with a knife.

How To Install Vinyl Furniture Coverings

Step 1

Lay the vinyl onto the item you wish to cover without peeling the backing off. Arrange the sheet until you are happy and then proceed to step 2.

Step 2

Lift one edge and peel a section of the protective layer off the back exposing the adhesive. Do this a bit at a time to avoid bubbles forming underneath the vinyl.

Step 3

Push to stick down the centre of the vinyl, then smooth outwards to push all bubbles to the edge.

Step 4

As the vinyl is applied, peel off more of the protective paper and repeat steps 3 and 4.

Step 5

Carefully trim the edges using a sharp utility or craft knife. Double check there are no bubbles and that the vinyl has fully adhered, Congratulations, your vinyl covering is complete!
