Checklist & Wallpaper Install Guide

Peel & Stick Wallpaper

Peel-and-stick wallpaper offers an affordable, DIY friendly alternative to traditional wallcoverings. The self-adhesive backing doesn't require any messy paste or glues, and if you make a mistake while applying, you can simply pull it off and start over.

Below you'll find a checklist to review before ordering, along with a step-by-step installation guide on how to apply peel-and-stick wallpaper to achieve bubble-free, long-lasting results.

Watch how easy it is to install yourself or, with the help of a friend!

Before Ordering

1. Check with your paint manufacturer's call centre to ensure self-adhesive peel-and-stick wallpaper will stick to your type of painted walls (many modern washable type paints have additives which repel self-adhesive wallpaper, to avoid disappointment of your peel-and-stick wallpaper not sticking to / falling off your wall or creating large bubbles - be sure not to avoid this step.)

2. Once you’re sure your painted wall will allow our peel-and-stick wallpaper to adhere to it, order a sample so you can review your chosen design, colour & pattern for your interior project.

3. Allow a minimum of 30 days before installing peel-and-stick wallpaper to freshly painted walls.

4. If your paint type is not compatible with self-adhesive peel-and-stick wall decor products, simply paint your wall with a high quality primer, wait 30 days for your painted wall to cure and then install your chosen design.

Step-by-Step Installation Guide

1. Turn off all power points for safety, remove power outlet and light switch covers before commencing the below cleaning process.

2. Clean the wall’s surface by wiping it down with a damp cloth (don’t use any chemical cleaners). Wait 24 hours to allow your wall to completely dry.

3. Lay out your wallpaper panels and ensure they’re all in the right order for ease of install.

4. Roll up your first panel (this helps with installing!) and peel off a few inches of the adhesive backing, folding the backing paper away from the adhesive.

5. Line the wallpaper up, level with the wall and ceiling. From the top to bottom, smooth wallpaper down with clean, dry hands (don’t use any hard objects or smoothing tools to smooth the wallpaper down as it may harm the fabric wallpaper). Work your way down the panel, removing backing paper and smoothing out any bubbles as you go (watch our install videos above!).

6. Don’t forget, peel-and-stick wallpaper is repositionable and made of a flexible fabric making it easy to guide into position and align the pattern. If you need to adjust the placement or re-align the pattern - simply peel the wallpaper panel back off the wall slowly and re-apply / realign as required.

7. Once your first piece is adhered to your wall, you can start the same process with your next panel. Line up the pattern and install per step 4, 5 and 6.

8. If any air bubbles are present, use the tip of a pin to create a tiny hole and gently press to release any air, alternatively you can peel back the panel and re-smooth. (If you get ongoing bubbles after install it means your paint is rejecting the adhesive, refer to 'Before Ordering' section above)

9. Once all panels are installed, slowly and carefully trim off any excess using a straight edge and a utility knife.
