How to hang Easy Up wallpaper
Easy to hang wallpaper with EasyUp
EasyUp is durable, non-woven wallpaper that guarantees smooth and seamless walls. It has high opacity which means that old wallpaper with strongly contrasting patterns do not show through. EasyUp is also very tough and durable wallpaper that retains its shape and is simple to hang. And the next time you paper over EasyUp, you can forget the sandpaper and putty – the walls are already smooth!
WALLPAPERING WITH EASYUP
- Clean the floor so the wallpaper doesn't become dirty when you unroll it.
- We suggest you start wallpapering next to a window or door.
- Use a plumb line to ensure that the first length is vertically straight.
- Roll the paste onto the wall to cover the width of 2-3 wallpaper lengths (1-1.5 metres). Use a brush along edges and skirting boards.
- Put the wallpaper tray on the floor. Pull up a length and attach it at the cornice, allowing it to overlap the cornice by a couple of centimetres. Cut off level with the skirting board. (If you aren't using a tray, hold the roll at the ceiling and unroll it down the wall.)
- Move the wallpapering tool vertically – brush gently along the edge towards the pre-pasted wall to avoid getting paste on the tool.
- Hang the next length edge-to-edge with the previous length.
- Smooth this length, just as you did with the previous one. Work from the middle and across the edge, making sure the edges of the two lengths are tightly butted together.
- If paste oozes to the front of the paper, wipe it off immediately with a damp sponge.
- When papering around windows and doors, cut the lengths roughly to size, allowing extra for trimming.
EasyUp wallpaper is made of a non-woven material that allows moisture to penetrate through it. Any damp patches that appear when you hang the wallpaper will disappear once it has dried (usually within 24 hours). Ensure good ventilation during application and drying.
- Using a knife or scissors, cut off a length from the roll leaving a margin at the top and bottom. Remember to allow for pattern alignment.
- Measure the distance from the edge of the "last" length to the corner. Add about 20 mm and cut the cut-off length to that width. Apply paste and then hang the length around the corner.
- You are now going to use the rest of the cut-off length to overlap the one that you just hung on the wall by about 10-15 mm. Using a brush, apply paste to the front of the first length.
- Hang the length about 5 mm in. Otherwise it may tear if you hang it right into the corner. Wipe away any excess paste with a damp sponge.
- Measure the distance from the last length of paper on the wall to the corner. Add about 10 mm and use scissors or a knife to cut the next length of paper to that width. Apply paste to the wall and to the next wall by slightly more than one width of paper. Hang the wallpaper that you have cut.
- Using a brush, apply paste to the front of the paper from the corner. Now hang the length of wallpaper that you cut off right up into the corner, making sure to hang it straight. Wipe away any excess paste with a damp sponge.
