Installation Of Fabric Backed Wallpaper

Fabric-backed wallpaper is a popular alternative to traditional paper wallcoverings. Here’s a guide on how to install fabric-backed wallpaper:

  1. Preparation: Clean and prime the wall surface. Remove any old wallpaper, repair any cracks or holes, and allow the wall to dry completely.
  2. Measure the wall: Measure the height and width of the wall and calculate the total square footage. Add 10% to the total to account for waste and pattern matching.
  3. Cut the wallpaper: Cut the wallpaper to size, taking into account the pattern repeat.
  4. Apply adhesive: Apply the recommended adhesive to the back of the wallpaper, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Hang the wallpaper: Start in the center of the wall, aligning the pattern and smoothing out any air bubbles as you go. Use a wallpaper smoothing tool to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles.
  6. Trim the edges: Trim the excess wallpaper along the ceiling and floor, using a sharp blade and a straight edge.
  7. Finish the seams: Apply seam sealer to the seams and allow it to dry.
  8. Clean up: Wipe down the wallpaper with a damp cloth to remove any adhesive residue.
