Do the maths. Our wallpaper comes in two lengths: 2m (perfectly sized for creating half-walls of print against dado rails, panelling or bathroom tiles) and 3m (for average-height walls). To work out how many rolls you will need, use our handy online wallpaper calculator.
Lay the foundations. Ensure that your walls are dry, even and firm before starting – this may mean scraping off any old, loose wallpaper, filling in holes and sanding the walls down. If the walls are a little on the old side, we suggest applying lining paper before hanging your chosen wallpaper.
Seal the deal. Working on a newly plastered wall? You will need to seal the wall with primer beforehand to prevent the paste from being absorbed by the plaster, which will in turn cause the paper to shrink.
Keep your cool. Turn the central heating off and ensure the room is well-aired during the application and drying time – otherwise, the wallpaper will shrink and leave visible gaps between the panels. Do your best to wait 48 hours before turning the heating back on.
