Wallpaper Installation Services
Proper wall preparation is essential to ensure a successful wallpaper installation. Here are some important considerations for all wall surfaces:
• Remove all items from the wall, including outlet and switch plates, old wallpaper, etc. Turn off the power for safety.
• Thoroughly clean, smooth, and dry the wall surface, ensuring it is free of grease, stains, dust, or any other substance.
• Fix any wall irregularities such as holes, cracks, and chipped paint to ensure a smooth surface for wallpaper installation.
• To cover drywall compound, grease, lipstick, colors, texture, or any other wall contamination, we strongly recommend using at least one coat of primer and a second coat of acrylic-based or water-based paint. Wait at least two weeks before installing the wallpaper to prevent bleeding through the wallpaper. In uncertain cases, we recommend using two coats of “Viponds Self Adhesive Prep Coat“.
• Avoid using washable and Teflon paints.
• If there is any mold on the wall, remove it and eliminate and repair the source of moisture to prevent future growth of mold.
• Failure to follow these recommendations may prevent us from guaranteeing proper conditions for wallpaper installation.
Ensure that the wall surface is well painted, clean, smooth, and dry before installing wallpaper. Our team can help you determine the best type of wallpaper for your wall surface, whether it be custom wallpaper, printed wallpaper, vinyl wallpaper, mural, traditional wallpaper, or self-adhesive wallpaper.

1. Make sure to review the “Considerations for Walls” section on our website to prepare for your wallpaper installation, whether it’s custom wallpaper, printed wallpaper, vinyl wallpaper, mural, traditional wallpaper, or self-adhesive wallpaper.
2. Gather your tools, including our provided squeegee, ruler, pencil, ladder or chair, masking tape, blade, level, and tape measure.
3. Locate the first panel and measure its width, noting the panel number at the bottom.
4. Mark a vertical line on the wall with a pencil, using the same measurement as the first panel width, to ensure levelness.
5. Use a level to confirm that the vertical line is straight.
6. (OPTIONAL) To help with alignment, overlap the second panel with the first one by 2cm and secure the joint with masking tape. Cut the tape where the panels meet to guide panel alignment during installation. Repeat for all panels.
7. Peel off about 20cm of the backing paper from the top of the first panel.
8. Align the right side of the panel with the vertical line and the top of the wall, leaving a few extra centimetres protruding from the top, bottom, and left side, as recommended in our guidelines.
9. Carefully attach the top of the panel to the wall, using the squeegee to smooth it from the center outwards.
10. Gradually peel off about 40cm of the backing paper, while a second person holds the panel from the bottom, keeping it level and taut. Use the squeegee to smooth the wallpaper onto the wall.
11. Install the next panel, aligning the joint with the previously installed panel using the cut masking tape pieces. We recommend having another person to help with alignment.
12. Repeat steps 10 and 11 for all remaining panels.
13. Use a knife to trim off any excess wallpaper.
14. Enjoy your newly installed wallpaper, whether it’s a custom wallpaper, printed wallpaper, vinyl wallpaper, mural, traditional wallpaper, or self-adhesive wallpaper.
Working with Obstacles: Windows, Doors, and Outlets
When installing your custom wallpaper, it’s essential to work carefully around windows, door frames, and outlets. To overlap these obstacles, apply the wallpaper as usual and then use a straightedge and utility knife to trim away the excess. Smooth the paper against the wall around all sides of the obstacle to ensure it adheres properly.
For electrical outlets and switch plates, be sure to turn off the power before proceeding. Be careful when cutting away the paper over the opening using a utility knife, and don’t worry about rough edges. The outlet cover or switch plate will hide most imperfections.
After installation, check for air bubbles. If you notice any, use the tip of your utility knife or a pin to create a small hole in the middle of the bubble. Press down to release the trapped air and use your squeegee to smooth the wallpaper once again.
