Self-adhesive wallpaper - decoration in turbo time without paste
Bought, applied, done. It couldn't be easier. With self-adhesive wallpaper, you save yourself all the tedious preparation involved in the conventional wallpapering process. In addition to numerous patterns and motifs, photo wallpapers are also often self-adhesive. You can use self-adhesive wallpaper in many areas. No matter in which room or on which surface you apply them: they are available in many colours and are ideal for walls, windows, doors and even cupboards. Other advantages of self-adhesive wallpaper:
- easy to cut by hand
- No adhesive required
- no professional tools required
- good adhesion
- no adhesive residue after removal
The great thing about self-adhesive wallpapers is that they are suitable for any wall design, except for damp rooms. For rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms, we recommend a special scrub-resistant version. And the same rule applies here as for all wallpapers for damp rooms: where walls are regularly exposed to moisture, such as on the shower wall, the wallpaper must be left blank. Tiles are the better choice here.
Tips for application - here we go
Self-adhesive wallpapers are made from non-woven backing material and have an adhesive film. They can be applied to painted walls as well as smooth, untextured paper and vinyl wallpaper. There are a few things to bear in mind when preparing the wall:
- The walls must be free of dust and grease
- The walls must be smooth
If the walls have unevenness or small cracks, you can level them out with a levelling compound. Then test the wallpaper in a small area to check its adhesion. If everything is fine, you're ready to go.
Step 1: Sorting
Lay the individual strips of self-adhesive wallpaper on the floor. If you have chosen a wallpaper with an artistic motif, the strips will be labelled with numbers. It's best to sort the strips accordingly.
Step 2: Apply
There is a protective film on the back of the wallpaper. Peel off a strip of the film about 10 cm wide and carefully press the wallpaper onto the wall. Then press the rest of the wallpaper against the wall while peeling off the backing paper at the same time. Work at a moderate pace and take your time, as this will result in fewer bubbles.
Step 3: Finish
Once the wallpaper has been fully applied, make sure that it is pressed down firmly and that all air bubbles are smoothed out. A rubber roller or soft cloth is suitable for smoothing out the wallpaper.
