HOW TO INSTALL PEEL AND STICK WALLPAPER STEP BY STEP
|Before you begin installing your peel and stick wallpaper, prepare your surface and clear the work area. Make sure electrical outlets are off and remove wall fixtures. For best results, clean and properly prepare all wall surfaces with a sponge and all purpose cleaner. Old wallcoverings and paste residue should be removed.||Beginning on the left side of your wall, measure out from the corner the width of the paper (20&1/2”) and mark the wall lightly with a pencil. Put your level on this mark and draw a straight, level, vertical line. This is the guide for your first strip, it is very important for it to be level. Remember to allow an extra inch or two for trimming both the top and bottom.||Pre-cut strips to fit wall height. Make sure to align any design from strip to strip when cutting. Number the back of each strip as you go to keep your design in the correct order (only if pattern requires it). Cut and trim product with a sharp razor knife changing the blade often to help maintain a smooth clean cut.|
|Peel about 12” of the backing away from the paper. Apply the paper to the top of the wall, allowing a bit of excess to overlap the ceiling which will be trimmed off later. Align the right side of the strip to your mark and lightly press the edge to the wall along the mark. You can reposition if needed to ensure a vertical seam.||Working from top to bottom, pull the backing away as you evenly press the paper to the wall. Do not force, let gravity assist you. Be careful not to pull or stretch the material or the pattern will not align. For best results , have one person guide the paper at the top and along the seam, while another holds the opposite edge away from the wall until the seams are lined up.||Using a plastic smoother, work your way down the strip in a back and forth motion, smoothing the material to the wall and pushing out any air bubbles. Trim off excess material at ceiling and baseboard with a straight edge and sharp razor knife.|
|Repeat procedure aligning your next strip to the right edge of your previous strip.|

How much wallpaper do I need?
1 – PICK YOUR WALL AND PRODUCT
Select the wall (or walls) you’re planning on decorating. Pick your wallpaper, and make sure you know the coverage of one roll. Most of our peel and stick wallpapers cover 28.18 square feet, however that varies from product to product. We’re going to use this cozy living room for our example, and we’re going to decorate it using our Aztec Peel and Stick Wallpaper which has a coverage of 28.18 square feet.
Pro tip – To make sure you’re getting a wallpaper that you are 100% sure you’ll love, try sampling! You can order sample sizes of any peel and stick wallpapers in our collection to try out on your wall before committing to a full purchase.
2 – MEASURE YOUR WALL
To find the square foot area of your wall, you’ll need to measure the height and width of the wall. This accent wall is 8 feet tall and 9 feet wide.
3 – MAKE YOUR CALCULATIONS
Figuring out how much wallpaper you’ll need is quite simple. Just use this simple calculation:
(Width x Height) ÷ Roll Coverage = Number of Rolls
Now that we know the calculations, it’s as simple as plugging in your numbers. We know that the wall is 8 feet tall and 9 feet wide, and we know that one roll of our chosen wallpaper cover 28.18 square feet, so the equation now reads:
(9 feet x 8 feet) ÷ 28.18 square feet = 2.6 rolls
If you have a large doorway or window in your wall, simply calculate the square foot area of the window or door in question then subtract it from the wall area. Here’s what the equation would look like this:
(Wall Sq Ft - Window & Door Sq Ft) ÷ Roll Coverage = Number of Rolls
However, if you only have one or two, standard-sized windows or a single door in the wall you’re decorating, we would recommend calculating it the same way you would a blank wall. That way, you are sure to have enough wallpaper to complete the full space.
4 – FINAL CALCULATIONS AND ROUNDING UP
As per our calculations in the previous step, we know that we need 2.6 rolls to cover this wall. However, you can’t just order a partial roll, so you’ll need to round up and order at least 3 rolls.
Pro tip – If you are new to peel and stick wallpaper hanging, we would also recommend that you add an extra roll to your estimate to make sure you have enough to cover any beginner mistakes. (Don’t worry; we all make them!) It’s also good for pros to have that comfort of mind to order an extra roll. In this case, we would recommend ordering 4 rolls.
