How Do You Hang Textured Paintable Wallpaper?
Hanging textured paintable wallpaper is a great solution when your wall condition is too poor to paint directly. This wall covering comes in many textures and styles, from very plain, smooth finishes that mimic drywall to more ornate raised patterns giving your walls a Victorian flair. The beauty of this type of wallpaper is that it can be painted and repainted to suit changing tastes in decor. Textured paintable wallpaper is hung much the same as traditional wallpaper. Determine where you want to begin hanging the wallpaper. Ideally you want to try to hide the final seam so chose an out of the way spot. Use a level and draw a vertical line from ceiling to floor where the first strip of wallpaper will go. Measure the height of the wall with a tape measure and add 6 inches to allow for work room. Measure out a length of wallpaper for the first strip. Using a straight edge and razor, cut the wallpaper. Apply wallpaper adhesive to the back of the wallpaper with a roller for even coverage.
