How to hang wallpaper in the bedroom
To calculate the number of rolls of wallpaper needed, measure the length and height of the wall.
This 3.3 x 2.4m wall required two 10m rolls of 52cm wide brown paper, which allowed for 20% wastage when matching the pattern.
Before you begin, move furniture from the room and lay drop sheets.
The walls in this bedroom had been painted recently, so they only needed to be washed to remove any dirt or grease.
For bare plasterboard walls, apply a primer and allow to dry.
To hang the wallpaper, we used a kit that included the paste, a plumb line, smoother, roller and tray.
TIP Remove old paper with a steamer or scraper, then sand and wash the wall.
