How do you hang peel and stick wallpaper?
Peel and stick pictures for walls are great for renters, college-students or anyone who doesn’t want to worry about damage when taking down their wall art. And because they don’t require glue or water to adhere, they’re a breeze to install.
Getting Started with Peel and Stick Pictures for Walls
Before you start, make sure your surface is prepared. It’s best to clean and prime your walls with a sponge or cloth and a good cleaning product. This will ensure that the wallpaper will stick properly.
You will also need a straight edge and a level to guide you when applying your first strip of wallpaper. Measure the width of your roll, then use your level to mark the wall. Using your level, draw a straight line down from the ceiling to your baseboard (or wherever you’re covering).
Next, cut out the amount of wallpaper that you need to cover the entire wall. This will give you enough extra to trim at the ceiling.
Applying the First Strip of Wallpaper
To begin, peel about 12 inches of the backing off of your wallpaper. Apply the first strip of wallpaper in the desired location. Then, smooth the paper to the wall. Once the paper is in place, use your straight edge and utility knife to trim it to your baseboard or other area of the wall. You can repeat this process until the entire wall is covered.
