  • Knife for trimming (exacto-knife preferred, its sharp blades can be easily refreshed for accuracy)
  • Pasting brush or foam roller
  • Warm clean water and a sponge to remove excess paste


  • Before applying your wall covering, make sure the intended wall is smooth, solid and dry. For best application, the wall should have a uniform, white colour.
  • Remove old wall coverings, old or chipped paint. Wash off dirt, grease or stains and rinse with clean warm water.
  • On new walls; the dry wall joints must be taped, bedded and sanded
  • To achieve optimum smoothness; fill in any cracks or holes. Allow filler to dry than sand until surface is smooth.
  • Priming the wall will create the ideal surface for installation.
  • Verify that wall moisture content does not exceed 4% - do this by using a moisture meter
  • If mold or mildew is present, or if the wall exceeds recommendations, do not proceed with installation until the condition has been fully corrected by a qualified expert.
