1. Prepare the wall
Wall needs to be clean and smooth. So first take care of any bumps, fill the holes, and polish it nicely until it becomes perfectly flat and smooth. Then clean it well. The most important thing is to remove any grease, which will usually be there as a result of previously used oil-based wall paint. The wall should be able to let the water go through, which will help glue dry off faster and make the mural adhere to the wall better.
Lay out the wallpaper before hanging and check if all is in order.
3. Draw orientation lines
It is very important to keep everything aligned, so you need to set up something that will serve as a guideline. Simply take pencil or chalk, and with the help of water level and plumb-bob, draw two perfectly straight lines, intersecting at the center of the wall. One should start from the middle of the floor/ceiling and go straight up (it must be perfectly vertical), and the other one should go horizontally, connecting the left and right wall edges at their very middles (sort of like a plus sign or a cross).
4. Apply the glue
You need to use commercial glue, but the one that is manufactured specifically for non-woven wallpapers. Apply the glue onto the wall (not onto the sheets).
5. Paste the sheets
First apply sheet 4, slowly and carefully, by applying pressure and removing any air trapped between the sheet and the wall. Work your way from the top to the bottom, and from the middle towards the left edge of the wall. Please note that you shouldn’t let the neighboring sheets overlap, not even for 1 mm. However, you can’t allow any empty space between either, so do everything slowly and carefully.
6. Let the glue dry off
The glue should dry off slowly, gradually. To make that happen, you need to avoid excessive airflow through the room (in other words, beware of draft – close your windows and doors). If you are using heating, do not overheat the room, it should be at 20 degrees Celsius (recommended).
7. Cut the edges
If the glue has dried off, cut off any excess edges by using a carpet knife. All our photomurals are designed in a way that cutting of any of the border parts won’t disrupt the complete picture and the esthetic value of the mural.
