Wallpaper Installation Instructions

Installing a Wallpaper Mural Is Easy!

Before you begin there are a few things to keep in mind.

– We recommend a help of a friend and a couple hours on your hands to install your mural.

– DO NOT Install on a textured surface 

– DO NOT Install over a freshly painted surface  

– DO NOT Install over a dirty or damaged surface.

– DO NOT Peel entire backing off at once

– Check your Wallpaper Mural for Accuracy 

Measure Carefully

For a successful mural installation job, it is essential that your wall covering be put up straight. Mark straight horizontal and vertical lines on your wall to line up the first panel. If the mural is smaller than the total wall space, mark out the dimensions lightly in pencil on the wall using a level and tape measure to create a straight center line and make sure that the area is level.

  • Lay out your mural panels before installing to ensure panel order.
  • Do not pre-trim your mural.
  • Make guidelines on the wall.
  • Smooth panels onto the wall.
  • DO NOT cut the overlap. Cutting the overlap my result in seams separating.
  • Trim overage.

All panels should be checked for accuracy by the installer to ensure that the shipment is received as ordered.  If there is any problem with your shipment, please Get in Touch with us at the earliest. 

Installation Guidelines

It’s time to start hanging your wall covering. 

  1. Install the first panel by carrying your panel to your wall. Peel back the liner paper a few inches, smoothing the upper portion against the wall, ensuring that it is straight with your plumb line. DO NOT peel off the entire liner paper all at once.
  2. Give the top portion of the panel a couple of strokes at the ceiling line to force it flat against the wall.
  3. Leave up to one-inch overage for trimming along the ceiling line.
  4. Line up the edge of your wall covering to your vertical plumb line.
  5. Slowly and evenly peel back the liner a few inches at a time and apply. Consider having another person hold the bottom of the panel as you work your way down and apply the rest of the panel.
  6. Using the smoothing tool, carefully smooth all wrinkles and bubbles outward, until they are removed. Do not use pressure. Simple light strokes work best. Be careful not to stretch the mural while positioning. If wrinkles or bubbles appear, simply peel back the panel and reapply that section.
  7. When the panel is positioned correctly, sweep your smoothing tool across the panel from the center outwards, working out all air bubbles. Trim at the ceiling and baseboard with a sharp razor blade and broad knife.
  8. Overlap the second panel over the first panel by approximately 1 inch, matching up the image. Apply anyadditional panels in the same method, overlapping each panel approximately 1 inch and matching up the image. Carefully smooth out all bubbles as you go.
  9. Murals Panels are printed with a 1 -inch overlap intended to be overlapped.
  10. If the mural is larger than the wall space, cut along the corners or edges of the wall using a sharp razor bladeand straight edge as a guide. Make long cuts, without lifting the blade. Step back and enjoy!
