What Now?

First You’ll Need to Measure Your Wall.

Measuring Your Wall

Take your measuring tape and note down the widest width and the highest height of your wall. We only need wall measurements, don’t include any skirting board or coving

We will print your wallpaper 1-2% larger than the dimensions you give us to allow for adequate excess paper for trimming. This will make installation easier and safer.

Standard Wall

Simply measure the full height and width of the surface you wish to cover. Please exclude skirting or covings. Make sure to double check all measurements before sending to us.

Sloped Wall

Measure the longest and widest parts only, ignoring the slopes. We’ll supply the wallpaper as a full rectangle or square so that the slope can be cut off during installation.

Pitched Wall

As with the sloped wall, simply measure the longest and widest parts only. We’ll supply the wallpapers in full, to be cut to shape during installation.

Obstacles

Measure the total width and height of the space. The obstacles areas will be cut away during installation. Feel free to send us a photo of the area, so that we can send you a preliminary visual with the obstacles in position.

What characteristics must the wall or ceiling surface have?

For successful wallpapering the wall surface must be dry, firm, evenly absorbent, clean and smooth. Lightly coloured wallpapers need a uniform white background. Therefore, the colour of the surface needs to be adapted accordingly.

Damp Surfaces

A damp wall surface is not suitable for wallpapering or any other form of coating. Mildew quickly forms on damp wall surfaces and can damage a building’s fabric.
Attempting to wallpaper a damp surface will result in the seams lifting and poor adhesion, particularly in the seam areas.

  • Remove the cause
  • Leave wall surface to dry
  • Heat and ventilate if necessary
  • Test again

Load-Bearing Capacity

Detachment of the wall surface (plaster, emulsion paint, chalky abrasion) means that adhesion of the wallpaper is not guaranteed. Seams or whole lengths can come away from the wall surface and ruin the overall uniform appearance.

Remove loose and unstable areas

Chalky or sandy plaster surfaces can be pre-treated with a wallpaper primer

Rough Surfaces

Rough and dirty wall surfaces show through when wallpapering. As a result, the hung wallpaper will not produce a good result after decorating.
Smooth out rough surfaces with filler and then use non-woven lining paper, if required

Alkaline Surfaces

Alkaline wall surfaces such as new plaster or concrete are not suitable for papering with grass, bronze, or metallic wallpapers. With other wallpapers, blistering may occur in some cases; which manifest themselves as spots on the wallpaper.
Allow the surface to dry until it has reached a pH of 7
Alternatively, wash down the alkaline surface twice with a magnesium fluorosilicate solution followed by a clean water wash
Then apply non-woven lining.

Cracked Surfaces

Cracks in walls and ceilings can adversely affect wallpapering in a major way. Non-woven lining paper should be used to bridge hairline, fatigue, shrinkage and joint cracks.
Special measures are required to remedy static cracks.

Mildew

Mildew can develop anywhere where nutrients are present and moisture occurs. Preventive measures, such as regular airing and well-controlled heating, leads to a reduction of humidity

Pre-treatment of wall surfaces

What characteristics must the wall surface have?

Correct pre-treatment of the wall surface is a prerequisite for perfect wallpapering. Skipping the preparatory work can adversely affect the whole wallpapering job in the long term.

Do old wallpapers need to be removed before wallpapering?

The old wallpaper must always be removed before wallpapering. Hanging new paper onto an existing one presents the risk of poor adhesion or seam reaction, or that the wallpaper underneath will show through.

The old wallpaper can be removed by hand with water, wallpaper stripper, ceiling brush and scraper. Old wallpapers that are hard to get off even after soaking several times should be perforated with a wallpaper perforator. This helps to remove washable and scrubbable wallpapers. If a dispersion adhesive has been used for the old wallpaper, often only mechanical steaming with a hot steamer will help.

Some wallcoverings are peelable. That means, the surface layer can be peeled off dry and only a thin layer of paper, the lining, remains. This then serves as the base for the new wallpaper but must only be used if it adheres firmly to the wall. This can be checked by wetting the old wallpaper with water in a few places and then waiting for about 15 minutes. If no blisters have formed, the lining can be papered over.

What do I do if there is old paint on the wall?

Old, unstable or cracked paint or varnish must be removed before wallpapering. This can be done by sanding down or scraping off. In difficult cases, stripping off the paint residue can help.

What do I do if there is a coating of size or emulsion paint on the wall?

Old coats of size must be thoroughly washed off with water. Adding wallpaper stripper will make the work significantly easier.
Apply a water-wallpaper stripper solution to wipe-proof emulsion paints (referred to as mixed binder paint) and leave to soak. The paint can then be removed. After cleaning, stabilise the wall surface with a water-based wallpaper primer.

What should be done if there is varnish or oil paint or metal on the wall?

These surfaces are not suitable for wallpapering. However, with careful preparation you may be able to paper these surfaces. First, you need to remove any parting agents, such as dust, grease or dirt. Then you need to apply a lining.

How should I pre-treat mineral wall surfaces?

Firm mineral wall surfaces (new plastering) should be pre-pasted with diluted wallpaper paste. For other types of mineral wall surface, e.g. concrete, plasterboard or plaster based fillers, it is advisable to prime the walls with a deep-acting solvent primer.
Sandy or heavily absorbent surfaces must also be stabilised with a deep-acting solvent primer.

What is the best way to prepare the wall?

Non-woven lining paper creates the perfect surface for wallpapering and prevents seam splitting. It also equalises the tension between wall and wallpaper and produces an even light-coloured wall surface.

Is special pre-treatment required when working with non-woven wallpaper or paper products?

Due to its poor absorbency, new gypsum plaster needs to be primed with paste (according to manufacturer’s instructions). All other surfaces (concrete, plasterboard, gypsum fibre board etc.) must be treated with deep-acting primer.

THE ESSENTIALS YOU’LL NEED FOR WALLPAPERING

Wallpaper

Wallpaper. Check you have enough of it. Ensure you have measured correctly before ordering.

Paste. Use a ready mixed wallpaper paste that comes in a resealable tub to save you time and avoid waste if you need to wallpaper in stages. Your local hardware store will recommend one for you.

Wallpaper application brush. Ensure it fits into the paste tub.

A plumb line measuring tool. You can buy these from. Your local hardware stores. However, if it is one simple feature wall you are doing, you can get a plumb line measuring app on your app store for free.

A sharp wallpaper trimming knife or snap blade and a pair of scissors. Using the knife is easier, but scissors are better for bits of wallpaper that won’t cut. You’ll also need the scissors to cut the paper off the roll.

Tape measure and a pencil.

A couple of clean cloths for smoothing down the wallpaper onto the wall.

A wallpapering table or clean dry surface.

Corners, Doors, Windows, Radiators & Ceilings

Doors

Doors must always be papered from one side only. At the same time, it is important to note that the non-woven length should not overlap the door frame by more than approx. 3 cm. The overlapping excess can be cut off cleanly with a utility knife and a plastic spatula.

Windows

As a rule, begin with the first length at one side of the window. Leave enough excess non-woven wall covering at the window in order to cover the window reveals adequately.

At the edge of the upper window reveal and at the window sill, use a utility knife to cleanly cut off the excess wall covering. This excess section can now be used to line the window reveal.

The non-woven excess piece between the point where the wall and ceiling meet and the window reveal is cleanly cut off. Any excess wall covering in the area of the window reveal is to be neatly trimmed off.

Radiators

Wallpapering “around” radiators. Non-woven wall covering is not applied behind radiators!

Corners

The corner can also be papered directly with Go/Pro non-woven material.

Recesses

Do the wallpapering across the recesses of the ceiling lights. When dry cut out the non-woven material covering the socket with the utility knife. After unscrewing the light switch and socket covers, you can paper over the exposed fittings. Before starting switch off the electric supply to the room concerned. After the wallpaper has been applied, immediately cut a cross-shaped incision into the non-woven wall covering and clean the switch mechanism to remove any adhesive. Once the non-woven wall covering is dry, use the utility knife to trim to the proper switch dimensions.

Ceilings

Wallpapering is usually done “away from the light”, that is, starting with the ceiling working from the window towards the centre of the room. Mark two points with the chalk line, lining-up with an approximate distance of 500mm to the parallel wall. This ensures that the consecutive non-woven lengths will be straight, even if the walls are not square to the ceiling.

Ideally two people are needed.

Roll out the first strip, which had been cut to size, to the outside, i.e. away from you. Apply the non-woven fabric to the paste bed leaving a slight overlap at the wall. The non-woven lengths are rolled out wrinkle-free and applied edge to edge using the foam rubber roller.

Press the excess length with a plastic spatula into the angle where wall and ceiling meet and trim cleanly using the utility knife

Trouble-shooting

Blistering

Blistering of paper or non-woven wallpapers

Blistering of paper or non-woven products after wallpapering could be caused by insufficient soaking time (see also folding rule method) or by not applying enough paste.

But sealed surfaces, can also cause blistering.

Splitting Seams

Splitting seams (non-woven)

This could be caused by an incorrect amount of paste, draughts or a surface that is unsuitable for wallpapering.

OUR paper

Non-woven wallpaper.

Thanks to its easy use, non-woven wallpaper is becoming increasingly popular.

We use mainly long-fibre specialty pulps, textile fibres and binding agents for the production of our non-woven materials; 80% of these are of natural origin. This production process, combined with the raw materials used, gives non-woven wallpaper an extraordinary dimensional stability so that it can be hung without soaking time.

Therefore, it can be affixed straight to the pre-pasted wall and you do not have to be prepared for any dimensional changes (paste-the-wall technique). Non-woven wallpapers can be easily completely stripped off dry when redecorating at a later date.

Since 1 January 2010 A.S. Création uses only FSC ®-certified papers and non-woven sheets, so that all of the wallpapers produced by A.S. Création since that date carry the FSC ® seal. The FSC ® (Forest Stewardship Council) was established in 1993 and is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation which advocates the environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically sustainable and viable utilisation of the world’s forests. For this purpose, the FSC ® has laid down minimum environmental and social minimum standards that must be adhered to in the management of forests.

The FSC ® seal shows consumers that wood used in the manufacture of the product concerned comes from a responsible and sustainable managed forest.
