Know the Basics for Peel and Stick Wallpaper

Peel and stick wallpaper is one of the hottest design trends of the 2020s. At Our Local Wallpaper Studio, we want to ensure it's the correct interior design decision for you. Keep these general tips in mind when planning your project:
  1. Measure the walls: Measure the height and width of the walls where you plan to apply the wallpaper. Make sure to account for any windows, doors, or other obstacles that may affect the amount of wallpaper you need.
  2. Prepare the walls: Make sure the walls are clean, dry, and smooth before applying the wallpaper. Fill any holes or cracks with spackling compound and sand down any rough spots.

  3. Plan the layout: Plan the layout of the wallpaper on the wall before you start. This will help you to avoid making mistakes and wasting wallpaper.

  4. Cut the wallpaper: Cut the wallpaper to the desired size, making sure to account for any overlapping or pattern matching that may be required.

  5. Peel and stick: Carefully peel the backing off of the wallpaper and line up the top edge with the ceiling or other reference point. Smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles as you apply the wallpaper.

  6. Trim the edges: Trim the edges of the wallpaper with a sharp utility knife or scissors. Be careful not to cut into the wallpaper or the wall.

  7. Repeat the process: Repeat the process for the rest of the walls, making sure to match any patterns or seams as you go.

  8. Clean up: After you finish the installation, clean up any excess glue or adhesive residue from the walls and the wallpaper.

  9. Enjoy your new wallpaper: Stand back and enjoy your new wallpaper!

Note: Some peel and stick wallpapers may not stick well on certain surfaces, so it's important to check with your salesperson before purchasing and installing. Also, if you're planning to remove the wallpaper later, it's important to choose a high-quality, removable wallpaper like those sold by Our Local Wallpaper Studio.
