Frequently asked questions

It's important to "book" each strip of wallpaper before applying it to the wall. Booking is simply folding the paper onto itself, pasted side to pasted side, and then gently rolling it like a newspaper, being careful not to crease the folds. Allow the paper to sit like this for approximately 1 minute.

Booking ensures that all the paste is activated, which prevents air bubbles from forming while drying. Booking also gives each strip time to relax to its final size so it can be hung properly without shrinkage and visible seams once it dries.

The best way to get an accurate color match to your wallpaper is to bring in a swatch from your actual rolls to a paint store for the color match. This will provide an exact match between your wallpaper and paint.
