Tools for optimal non-woven wallpaper installation

First, start by equipping yourself with the following tools;
  • A pair of gloves
  • Wallpaper glue (found on Amazon, we highly recommend the brand Metylan )
  • A pair of scissors
  • A meter
  • Glue brushes
  • A cutter

A scraper may be required if bubbles appear

Clean the wall on which the wallpaper will be hung

For a successful installation, your walls must be clean, dry, intact, smooth and uniform. For new walls (plaster, Placoplâtre, wood), please apply a primer the day before to facilitate the installation of the wallpaper. For walls covered with matte paint, please use the detergent Rénovocai for cleaning. Let your walls dry for about 24 hours before applying the glue.

For walls painted with gloss or satin paint, sand them first. You can then apply an undercoat which will be the last step in preparing your wall.

  1. Apply the glue to the back of each of your wallpaper rolls (proceed roll by roll so as not to lose any adhesion)
  2. Carefully stick your roll on the wall, cutting off the excess parts with your cutter. You can then use a clean cloth to remove the excess glue.
  3. Same process as for the first roll, but be careful to match the patterns and design for optimal results. Remember to remove excess glue from the edges of each roll once installed.
  4. Cut out each of the excess parts using your cutter so that the designs fit together perfectly
  5. Use the scraper to make the wallpaper flat and obtain optimal visual results. (if bubbles appear, wait 48 hours for them to resolve on their own.)
  6. Close all doors and windows that could bring in a draft in order to obtain natural drying.
