Using wallpaper to create a feature wall is a terrific way to add color, texture, and personality to your house. Choose a barrier that makes the most effective when you go into the room. You may make a feature wall in your entryway, bedroom, living room, or dining room. So many options! If you’re a handy person, hanging your Norse wallpaper shouldn’t be a problem. Here are some tips for turning your wallpaper and creating a stunning feature wall.
Step 1: Preparation
The surface of your wall should be clean, smooth, and dry. So get rid of dust, filth, and grime by sweeping away those old cobwebs. According to us, washing your walls with sugar soap and one of those sizeable fat oranges or yellow sponges used to wash your car is a terrific method to clean them. Any imperfections should be sanded away, and fill any gaps with putty. Before putting new wallpaper, make sure to remove any existing wall coverings.
Step 2: Get the Glue and Paste Ready
Most glue and paste combinations need to be set before they can be applied to the wallpaper, so make the mixture ahead of time to save time. Follow the directions on the glue and paste package. The paste is placed to the back of the wallpaper. And adhesive is put to the wall in a border.
Step 3: Cut and Measure the Wallpaper
It is the most challenging stage if you have a repeating pattern that must be matched. Always start with enough wallpaper to allow for the possibility of a mistake. Measure the height of your wall. Allow 5cm (2 inches) additional for trimming. Lay down the wallpaper and make a note of where you’ll need to cut it. A box cutter or Stanley knife, carefully cut the paper against a steel ruler or big spirit leveler. More wallpaper should be rolled out and matched to the design. Remove the mismatched piece of the wallpaper and trash it. Continue to measure, compare, and cut the wallpaper until you have everything you need to finish your feature wall.
Step 4: Put the Adhesive to Work
Apply the paste liberally to the back of the wallpaper, from top to bottom, with a paint roller. Fold the wallpaper in on itself and again after applying the paste until it is barely 30cm wide. Set it aside for 30 minutes in a big plastic rubbish bag to allow the paste to seep into the wallpaper. Continue with each wallpaper strip. Continue folding the wallpaper until it is small enough to fit into a trash or rubbish bag. Remove the air from the plastic bag and seal it to keep the wallpaper from drying out, as you won’t be able to hang it for a while.
To ensure that any air bubbles are gone, smooth the surface of the Norse wallpaper while it is still moist from the paste. Continue to remove excess glue and keep an eye out for any air bubbles that may form while the paste cures.
