Clean Your Walls

It’s important to make sure that your walls are free of dirt, dust, grease and other debris before applying removable wallpaper. Not only does this give your walls a nice refresh before adding your wallpaper, but it also ensures that your removable wallpaper has a clean, smooth surface to stick to. 

Use a damp cloth to wipe down the wall you’re working on, focusing especially on any areas where there might be grease, grime, or other buildup.

Remove Any Old Wallpaper

If you’re replacing an existing wallpaper, make sure to carefully remove it and clean the walls thoroughly. That way you're not sticking your removable wallpaper directly to old wallpaper. Make sure that there are no old bits of glue or paper stuck to the wall before starting the application process! 

Fill in Any Cracks or Holes

If your walls have any visible cracks or holes, it’s important to fill them in with spackle before applying removable wallpaper — especially because your new wallpaper might cling to and accentuate that damage! When you're done, you'll have a smooth surface that will ensure an even finish for your new design.

Sand Down Any Rough Spots

With removable wallpaper, rough spots on your wall will not only be magnified by your wallpaper but those rough patches will also make it harder for the removable wallpaper to adhere. Sand down any areas where the surface of your wall is uneven or bumpy before applying removable wallpaper to ensure that the adhesive will stick properly. That will create an even surface for an easy application process.

Ensure You Properly Measure Your Walls

Nothing's worse than starting a big wallpaper project and running out before you've covered your walls. Once your walls are all prepped, you’ll want to make sure that you have the correct measurements before ordering removable wallpaper.
