Dec 28, 2022

Peel-and-stick or self-adhesive wallpaper is a great option for adding a quick and easy update to your walls. It's easy to install, and if done correctly, it can last for years. Here are some steps you can follow to apply peel-and-stick wallpaper for long-lasting results:

  1. Prep your walls: Make sure the walls you will be applying the wallpaper to are clean and smooth. Fill any holes or imperfections with spackle, and sand the walls until they are smooth.

  2. Measure and cut your wallpaper: Measure the height and width of the wall you will be covering, and cut your wallpaper to size. Leave a few inches of extra wallpaper at the top and bottom to allow for trimming.

  3. Peel off the backing: Peel off the backing from the first panel of wallpaper, being careful not to touch the adhesive side.

  4. Align and stick the wallpaper: Line up the top of the wallpaper with the top of the wall, making sure it is straight. Smooth out any air bubbles as you go.

  5. Trim the excess wallpaper: Use a straight edge and a sharp knife or scissors to trim the excess wallpaper from the top and bottom of the wall.

  6. Repeat the process: Continue applying the wallpaper to the rest of the wall, making sure to line up the pattern and smooth out any air bubbles.

  7. Finish the edges: Use a small paintbrush or foam roller to apply wallpaper paste to the edges of the wallpaper, then smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles.

By following these steps, you can successfully apply self-adhesive wallpaper to your walls and enjoy a long-lasting, attractive update to your space.
