Use self-adhesive wallpaper on flat walls to which the glue will easily stick and bind well. Below please find a list of surfaces that are not recommend for installation as the wallpaper may not stick to them or damage the surface when peeling off:
Textured Walls — All kinds of convex unevenness will be visible after gluing the wallpaper, air will accumulate in concave gaps and the glue will not bind in these places.
Wallpaper — Sticking self-adhesive wallpaper on paper is not recommended, when you try to peel off to correct, you must completely tear off the old layer of wallpaper.
Brick / Cinderblock — Rough surfaces to which the wallpaper will not hold.
Wooden walls — Similarly as on brick, the wallpaper can peel off after some time.
Unpainted Drywall / Sheetrock or Plaster — Paper may possibly tear off when peeling off Non-stick Paint e.g..
Latex paint — Some latex paints, depending on their composition, may cause the wallpaper to peel off. It is recommended that you check such a wall using the sample attached to each wallpaper.
Wall behind old plaster/ paint — When peeling off, it is possible that the paint will strip off with part of the plaster.
Wall covered with mold — A wall which is covered with mold is usually moist, so the adhesive cannot bind well and will peel off.
Bathroom — Installing any wallpaper in the bathroom is not easy due to steam. To check if YOU can hang a self-adhesive wallpaper in your bathroom, order a sample and glue it on the desired wall at height above 7 ft. If, after 7-14 days, it does not start to peel off, your wallpaper should also stick. It is not recommended in areas that are directly in contact with water.
Kitchen — If you want to hang the wallpaper over the kitchen counter near the sink, etc. it is necessary.
Before you install your wallpaper, prepare the wall in a way similar as before applying a normal wallpaper or before painting:
If there is any kind of unevenness, smooth it out by applying a coat and dry so it is even. Similarly, to old plaster or paint, it should be cleaned and smoothed beforehand.
It should not be painted at least up to 21 days before hanging the wallpaper.
It should be cleaned with a cloth moistened with a warm water of all kinds of dust, grease, etc., everything that might reduce its tackiness. Do not use chemicals or soap. The wall must be completely dry during installation.
If there are power outlets on the wall, cut off the power supply before hanging the wallpaper and unscrew the sockets.
