Step 1. Prepare the wall
Whether you’re using normal vinyl covering or peel and stick vinyl wallpaper this step always remains the same and is also necessary to achieve a seamless finish.
Strip off the existing wallpaper before installing a new one. Properly clean/ remove the residual adhesive, wipe the wall using sponge or mesh cloth, fill holes or blemishes if there are any and let the wall dry.
Step 2 Apply primer
If you’re using peel and stick vinyl wall covering, you must use a special coating to ensure the edges don’t bubble or don’t dry. Thus it’s necessary to iron using a brush or roller after lying to ensure it doesn’t bubble.
For vinyl wallcovering with layer backing, use a good acrylic or latex wallpaper primer adhesive. Apply/coat the primer using a brush or roller and wait for it to dry completely.
Step 3 Apply glue
Apply the wall covering the adhesive on the back of the sheet of vinyl wallpaper using a roller brush. Make sure you’re evenly spreading it all over the sheet.
Step 4 Lay them over
After coating it with glue, lay and press the paper against the wall. Mark the extra papers with a pencil and cut them off using a utility knife. Only cut as it needed along the bottom edge to fit the wall perfectly.
For peel and stick wallpaper, just peel one edge and stick it on a clean wall. Keep on gradually peeling and sticking until you cover the entire wall.
Step 5 Brush the wall
Brush the wallpaper using a brush or roller to remove any entrapped bubbles. Always start the process from the middle of the walls and work out towards the edges to eliminate the air. Repeat the process until you are sure.
Step 6 Wipe
Wipe off the excess adhesive from the surface of the wallpaper.
