Farrow & Ball Wallpaper
Newly plastered walls and other absorbent surfaces should be carefully sized before hanging wallpaper.
Once you’ve ensured your surface is properly prepared, you can start getting ready to hang your paper.
Preparing your paper
Check that wallpaper rolls are undamaged and that the design and colourway are correct. If your rolls are batch numbered, order them consecutively, as this is the order you’ll follow when hanging.
For best results and ease of application, we recommend using Farrow & Ball Wallpaper Paste. It comes in powder form in a recyclable tube that doubles up as a measuring jug, making mixing and maintaining an even consistency easier. Each tube can be used to hang five rolls of wallpaper.
Check the pattern repeat before cutting the lengths according to the height of the wall, allowing two to three inches at the top and bottom for trimming.
Working from the centre outwards, apply a generous, even coat of paste, ensuring you work right to the edges of the paper and that no paste comes into contact with the pattern side.
Fold the paper with adhesive side inwards and allow the paper to soak for 10 minutes until pliable. Make sure the paper doesn’t become too wet, otherwise it may shrink back as it dries.
Ensure paper edges butt up to the subsequent lengths and avoid overlapping edges.
