How to apply Tropical wallpaper
The removable Tropical wallpaper will stick to a range of internal surfaces. It will suit all painted flat surfaces and textured surfaces, like rendered and brick walls. It will apply to glass and mirrors. You will be asked your wall type at Checkout. Full instructions on application are included with your product. You do not need any special skills to apply our wallpaper. Application of our wallpaper will require your time. For more information, see “Removable wallpaper FAQs” tab below.
How much Tropical wallpaper to order
Wallpaper panels are 65cm wide by your chosen wall height. To work out how many panels you need to order, divide your wall width by 65cm and round this number up to the nearest whole number to work out how many units to order. We offer our panels in standard wall heights; 250cm high, 280cm high, 310cm high, or 350cm high. Choose the one that matches your wall height. The excess can be trimmed away easily.
Wallpaper Application Instructions – these will be included with your wallpaper
Before you start…
- Newly painted walls need 4 weeks to outgas before application.
- Avoid rubbing the product or exposing to solvents or water.
You?ll need a step ladder, a sharp Stanley knife (snap for a new blade) and possibly a second pair of hands. Make sure your walls are clean and dust free, and wipe the skirting boards too. Remove any picture hooks, tacks or blue tack, and any switch plates. Make sure your hands are clean.
Notice on the back corner of the panels the numbering – you?ll be putting up panel #1 on the left then applying them to the right. (For left-handers just start at the highest number and work from right to left.) Lay the first panel design-down on a clean, flat surface. Peel the top edge back 30cm or so, and the fold the backing paper back so it stays out of the way.
REMOVE THE BACKING
Now you?re going to temporarily stick the panel to the wall so you can remove the backing paper safely. Stick it to the wall under the cornice (don?t worry about placement yet) and stick it to the wall. Start pulling the backing paper down from behind (evenly across to avoid buckling), and stick the wallpaper to the wall as you go – just enough to keep it stuck. Prevent the sticky sides of the wallpaper from sticking together.
Once the backing paper is removed from the top of the panel you can place it properly. Placing the first panel is the trickiest so take your time. From the step ladder, pull the entire sheet back off the wall to line it up under the cornice. Then let the panel fall naturally. If the side of the wall is not covered all the way to the corner, allow an extra centimetre across the corner – this can be trimmed off at the end. Pull it off again if you?re not happy, and reapply. Once you are happy with how it is placed, smooth it from the top in a down-and-out motion to ?sweep? out any air pockets.
DEALING WITH WRINKLES & BUBBLES
Large bubbles should just smooth out but if they get trapped or you get a crease, just peel back the panel to release them rather than rubbing the print.
MATCHING THE DESIGN
For the next panel you need to repeat the above to get it safely on the wall and off the backing paper. For the best result, apply the panel temporarily 10cm below the first panel. Now step down and, at eye level, match up the design and butt the panels into each other (no overlapping is required). Line up the design up and down the join and stick it to the wall but only enough to hold the panel flat to the wall – you can smooth it completely to the wall once the entire join is matched.
Only once all the panels are adhered and aligned can you trim off the excess wallpaper. Run your sharp Stanley knife blade along the sides and bottom. Carefully trim around power points then replace the plates.
MOVING THE PANELS
If you want to move the wallpaper to a different wall, you need to apply it to the backing paper while vertical to avoid debris getting on the sticky side. Stick a panel of the backing paper on the wall next to the panel you want to remove – stick at the top and bottom with masking tape or similar. Peel the panel of wallpaper off the wall and move it across and stick it onto the backing paper, getting it lined up as best as possible. It will help to have a second pair of hands to guide the bottom of the panel. Once stuck, roll up the panel and protect any exposed edges – wrap in bubble wrap.
Our removable wallpaper looks like traditional wallpaper but with one very important difference – it has a self adhesive backing. So there’s no need for glue or water, rollers, sponges, or heat guns; you simply peel the fabric from the backing paper and stick it straight to the wall. The finish is a high-end matt fabric will a fine weave.
Installation: It is easy to install yourself because it is re-positionable so once the panels are in place, any bubbles just smooth out with your hand. The fabric won’t tear or stretch. The panels butt up against each other, creating a seamless finish. Full instructions included, see them here.
Our product suits all wall types: plaster board or brick/concrete/rendered.
Our product will curve around corners and over picture rails, and is trimmed around power points and fixtures with a sharp stanley knife.
Removal: The removable wallpaper product will continue to look good for years and years and when it’s time for an update or to move home, it peels off the wall without causing any damage, or leaving any residue. Keep the backing paper and it can even be moved to another wall. It is the perfect solution for renters who want to decorate.
How much to order: Start by measuring your wall. Enter the wall width into the calculator to work out how many units to buy. Our panels are 65cm wide so you may require 4 units by your wall height.
Please be aware that due to our printing process, future panels purchased may not exactly match. We suggest you order what you need at this time.
Shipping: Your removable wallpaper will arrive rolled up in a tube with instructions included. The panels are numbered on the back and you hang each panel next to each other.
Design ideas: Our wallpaper is perfect for creating a feature wall ad it is best if you choose one with the least windows and doors.
