Wallpaper Fitting Guide (Butt Join - Edge to Edge)


We advise that a professional be used when hanging non-woven wallpaper. The instructions can be found below:



Walls should be dry, clean, and even.

Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.

Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper.

For best results, walls should be cross lined using a good quality lining paper. Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion. Lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wall covering.


This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wall covering.

A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the wall non-woven papers should be used.

Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than width of the paper.

Butt joints and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wall covering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.

Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.

No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wall covering.

Paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.

Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.

Wide width wallpapers, grasscloth and textile wall coverings are supplied untrimmed with a 10mm overlap to each edge for double cut on installation. TCARING FOR YOUR WALLPAPERS

Our coated non-woven wallpapers and vinyls are all “spongaeble”. Uncoated papers and specials such as our rage of natural wall coverings should be cleaned by dusting with a clean dry brush or by brush accessory on a vacuum cleaner.


Whilst our wallpapers are suited to most environments, applications in bathrooms and kitchens may influence your choice of base paper. In these settings we recommend you apply a wallpaper varnish such as POLYVINE decorators' varnish. It is important to test before application as it may affect colours.
