Wall requirements

Wall requirements

Our wallpaper is designed to be applied to almost any clean, smooth, dry, and dust-free surface. The removable self-adhesive wallpaper sheets are NOT designed for textured walls, bumped walls, freshly painted walls, damp or cold surfaces, plaster, chalk, lime-painted finishes.   


They are NOT designed for the walls painted with a “stain resistant” or low VOC paint. The wallpaper WILL NOT stick to it.  Wall paint issues


 All sanded or drywall textures should be smoothed. To ensure strong adhesion, old wallcovering and loose paint flakes should be removed. 

There are a few different ways you can go about smoothing your walls. You can use a product like joint compound or wall primer, or you can sand your walls down with fine-grit sandpaper. Whichever method you choose, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to let the walls dry completely before you start putting up wallpaper.

You may also need to patch any holes or cracks in the wall, and then sand and prime the surface so the wallpaper will stick properly.

Do not hang the wallpaper close to heat sources such as panel heaters, central heating, re and cooking stove

If your walls have been recently painted please allow for at least 4 weeks of drying time. Some types of paint might even require up to 5 weeks of drying time for all the fumes to evaporate entirely. If removable wallpaper is applied to fresh paint, it will damage the adhesive backing, and the wallpaper will not be able to hold onto the wall.

If you have any concerns, we recommend ordering a sample to check how our wallpaper material sticks to your desired surface, how well it holds, and how the design works with your environment. Try a sample

The adhesive on “Peel and stick” is considered removable and should be easy to remove for at least 6 months. However, the longer the wallpaper is mounted, generally, the more challenging removal will be. Removability also depends on the mounting surface. Paper-based, painted, and composite materials may not allow for complete removal without damaging the mounting surface. If a residue remains after the vinyl is removed from a solid surface, use soapy water and aggressive rubbing. 

Even if your walls fit all of the previously mentioned criteria, there is always a possibility that  other variables are at play in your specific space. Some of those might be excessive moisture/heat and/or dryness, dust, or a specific incompatible type of paint or other wall coverings. We cannot control or predict these variables, so we, therefore, cannot guarantee that our removable wallpaper will be 100% compatible with your specific wall. This is why we strongly encourage our customers to consider trying a sample if they have any doubts. 


 Wallpaper installation challenges

If you live in an area with high humidity, that could be the reason your wallpaper is falling off. When the air is too moist, it can cause the wallpaper to loosen and eventually fall off.

If you've ever noticed that your wallpaper is peeling or bubbling, it might be because of temperature changes. When the temperature in your home changes, it can cause the wallpaper to expand or contract, which can lead to peeling and bubbling.
