House of Hackney - Wanna hang with us? Tips to hang your wallpaper



Even Things Out
Use a sponge to smooth wallpaper down and never a spatula, which could scratch the design.


Keep it Clean
If you’re wallpapering a bathroom or a very busy area in the house, we suggest applying two coats of Polyvine Decorator’s Varnish in ‘Dead Flat’ over the top using a short flock roller (just ensure the wallpaper is dry first). This will help protect against finger marks, stains and scuffing.


Pull the Plug
For sockets and switches, start by unscrewing and removing the outer casing. Apply the sheet of wallpaper as normal and let it hang over the socket area. Next, use a knife to slice a cross-shaped opening, diagonally from corner to corner across the socket area, then cut away the excess. Smooth the paper down with a brush or sponge before reattaching the front cover of the socket.
