Top Wallpaper Hanging related questions

Technically, you can hang your wallpaper by yourself, but it may be easier to have a second set of hands to assist you. Even with easy peel and stick wallpapers, you'll most likely need someone to hold the bottom part of the paper while you remove the backing and smoothen the wallpaper out from the top. You can opt to hire an expert to install your wallpaper so you won't have to deal with inaccurate measurements or misaligned placements.
No. Wallpaper, if installed properly, shouldn't damage your wall. In fact, it can even serve as a protective layer for the wall underneath. What can damage your wall would be incorrect installation and using the wrong tools or adhesive in the process. These can potentially stain your walls or leave chips and breaks, and can also complicate the removal process later on.
The time it takes to complete a wallpaper installation varies depending on the scope of work. On average, applying wallpaper to a regular-sized bedroom can take around three hours to finish. Bigger rooms or areas, on the other hand, may take longer to complete as it will naturally require more wallpaper. You should also consider the time needed for prepping the walls and measuring your wallpaper. You can always ask your wallpaper fitter if you need a more accurate time frame.
You can if you want to! But if you have other errands to run around the house, you can leave your Tasker to install your wallpapers and give them specific instructions if you have any. Otherwise, feel free to stay during the service to monitor the progress. This way, you can also make sure that your wallpaper is installed to your liking.
Not necessarily, but if you've already prepared the necessary materials for a wallpaper installation service, you can lend them to your Tasker! Don't worry if you don't have any tools lying around, though. Your wallpaper fitter can bring their toolkit which can include a tape measure, a level, a pair of scissors, a trimming knife, and wallpaper smoother. In case you need extra wallpaper paste or primer, you can let your fitter know so they can pick some up along the way.
Through our platform, you'll find skilled tradies who can address your plumbing or electrical concerns, as well as building and construction projects in case you’re renovating your kitchen or bathroom. You can also hire an expert plasterer to work on your walls, or a skilled assembler who can put together your bedroom or living room furniture for you. Just let us know what you need when posting your task so that we can connect you with suitable Taskers for the job.

What do wallpaper hanging services include?

Our wallpaper hanging services involve prepping and measuring your walls to ensure a smooth and flawless wallpaper application. From there, our professional wallpaper installers hang your wallpapers in place and adjust or trim any excess for a perfect finish. Here's what you can expect:

Prepping your walls

Before the installation can begin, you need to remove any wall decor, electric outlet covers, or furniture that might get in the way. It's also wise to take note of any wall textures or damages like dents and scratches and have them repaired by a skilled tradesman to ensure a flawless wallpaper application.

Once your walls are in the clear, your wallpaper fitter can start prepping your walls which typically involves:
  • Smoothening your walls using sandpaper
  • Cleaning your walls with soap and water and a sponge to get rid of any excess dirt
  • Applying wallpaper primer to protect your walls. Doing so can also help with the removal process later on as it prevents the wallpaper from sticking completely to your wall.
Measuring your walls

Once your walls are prepped and ready to go, your wallpaper fitter then measures the height and width of your walls using a tape measure. This step can help determine how much wallpaper the room or area needs. Afterwards, they can proceed with cutting your wallpaper into strips while taking note of the recorded measurements and leaving a bit of excess for trimming purposes.

Hanging your wallpaper

The installation process will depend on the type of wallpaper you have. Your fitter pastes the wall using a roller and wallpaper paste and hangs your wallpaper strips in place. They can smoothen the paper out with a paperhanging brush, going from the centre outwards to remove any creases. They can also use a level to make sure that the strips are properly aligned. Don't worry if there's any excess paper at the bottom as your fitter can easily cut it down using a trimming knife.

If you're getting a pre-pasted wallpaper installed, your fitter may need to soak the strips in lukewarm water for a few minutes or according to the manufacturer's instructions. Afterwards, they can either let it sit for a bit to activate the paste or go straight to placing the paper onto your walls. 

Peel and stick wallpapers with adhesive backing are much more forgiving since you can just literally stick them to your walls and remove them right away if needed. However, they may still require the same steps of measuring, cutting, smoothening, and trimming upon installation.

Wallpaper mural installation

If you're happy with the bold paint on your wall but looking for a way to spruce it up, a wallpaper mural can do the trick! Wallpaper mural installation involves placing unique decals on your wall to add to your interior's aesthetic, from small accents and designs to large-scale murals.
