Not Measuring Accurately

One of the most common mistakes people make when using peel and stick wallpaper is not measuring accurately. Make sure you measure both the width and height of the area you want to cover, and be precise! This will ensure that you don't end up with too much or too little wallpaper.

You can view our Measuring Tips page for more information on how to properly measure for peel and stick wallpaper.

 

Not Prepping the Surface

Another mistake people make is not prepping the surface before applying the wallpaper. It's important to make sure the surface is clean, dry, and smooth before applying the wallpaper. Any dirt, dust, or imperfections will show through once the wallpaper is applied.

Misaligning Panels and Leaving Seams

If you're using multiple panels of wallpaper, it's important to align them correctly. Misaligned panels can cause your wallpaper design to not line up, which can be very noticeable and ruin the overall look.

On top of that, seams that are not trimmed can be very noticeable, and they can also cause the wallpaper to peel up over time.

Before you start applying your temporary wallpaper, take a moment to plan out the alignment of the panels and get a cohesive look for your space!

Not Applying Enough Pressure

When you're applying the wallpaper to the wall, be sure to apply enough pressure. This will ensure that the wallpaper adheres properly and doesn't start to peel up.
