Finishes
Choose between our four wallpaper mural finishes:

Standard Smooth
Our affordable paper backed, ‘paste the wall’ standard wallpaper mural boasts a satin smooth finish. It’s ideal for the domestic environment and rooms with less wear and tear like bedrooms and living rooms.

Just Stick It Up™
Our trade marked self-adhesive option uses the latest developments in wallpaper adhesive technology to create a really easy to use wallpaper. It’s perfect for the less confident decorator as it gives you a chance to reposition the mural to get it just right and with no wallpaper paste to worry about it makes the whole process simple, quick and mess free.

Linen (premium) 
A favourite with interior designers, this premium wallcovering features a textured finish that resembles a woven fabric for a warm and soft effect, which is perfect for masking less than perfectly smooth walls. Ready for installation using the ‘paste the wall’ method, it is also incredibly durable making it ideal for high traffic areas in domestic and public spaces.

Oriental (premium) 
A beautiful and subtly textured wallpaper reminiscent of handmade Japanese papers creates a luxurious and sophisticated effect. ‘Paste the wall’ for ease of application, it is also exceptionally durable making it the perfect choice for high traffic areas like hallways, kitchens and dining rooms. Due to its weight and texture it is also a great choice for uneven walls.

Our ‘paste the wall’ wallpaper finishes are ready for installing onto walls that have been plastered and painted with emulsion.

How to measure:

As walls are seldom perfectly square always measure the height and width of your wall in several places. For large wall areas take measurements at 1 metre intervals. When inputting your required dimensions into the customisation tool always use the largest of these measurements to ensure the mural will completely fill the wall and trim to fit as described in the how to install instructions below.

 

How to install: 

Ensure your wall surface to be covered is clean, smooth, dry and in a sound condition. Dry and absorbent surfaces need to be painted or sealed using a water-based primer or sealer.

1) Starting out. 
The wall mural is supplied in ‘drops’ of equal width (up to 1200 mm) and length. Carefully unpack these drops and lay them out in order. You’ll find a reference on each panel at the top to help. Note that the whole image has an additional 50mm bleed all round and each section join has a 25mm overlap left and right, to give an overlap that’s cut back to create an accurate butt join. Whilst laid out, use your masking tape to create handy markers as guides to where the image from the different panels line up, mark these points on the tape. Roll up and label each roll.

2) The first piece. 
Key to a successful installation is getting the correct starting position on the wall. Each panel has bleed marks and a mid point mark to help positioning. Start by measuring the width of the first drop (minus 50mm for the extra bleed). Use this measurement to draw a vertical line from the right hand edge of the wall; use a plumb line or spirit level to ensure that it’s completely vertical.

Tip:  we recommend starting the installation with the right hand panel to assist with trimming the section panels. If you’d prefer to start with the left hand panel, make sure you reverse the left/right instructions in this guide.

Apply a ready mixed good quality wallpaper paste to the wall, one section at a time. This is not necessary for Just Stick It Up murals – simply start to peel away the protective backing from the top.

Fix the first drop from the right hand side, making sure the left hand edge of this drop aligns with the vertical line. This is the most critical point and this first panel must be vertical to the plumb line. Smooth out any bubbles or ripples with a brush, smoother or your squeegee, in a vertical direction only. Wipe off any excess paste with a damp sponge.

3) Applying the second and subsequent drops. 
Apply wallpaper paste to the next section of wall. The second and subsequent drops should be overlapped by 50mm to make sure that the image aligns accurately. Use your masking tape guides to help align these image overlaps. Smooth out any bubbles or ripples with a brush, smoother or your squeegee, in a vertical direction. Continue until all panels are up before moving on to trimming. Remove masking tape.

4. Trim top and bottom. 
Trim the right hand edge and the top and bottom, using a straight edge for guidance.

5. Trimming the joins. 
Gently lift the two overlapped edges and fix the supplied 50mm plastic strip to the wall (the paste should hold it in place) under the lifted edges. Smooth the edges over the plastic strip. Using a straight edge and sharp blade, trim down the middle of the overlap, then remove the plastic strip and excess wall mural. A final application of paste can be applied beneath the joints using a paintbrush. Smooth down both edges to make a seamless butt join, making sure the wall mural is fixed at the edges. Finally trim the left hand edge.
