Mural Wallpaper Hanging

Mural wallpaper hanging involves installing large-scale wallpapers that feature a single cohesive image or design that covers an entire wall or a significant portion of it. Mural wallpapers can transform a room, creating a visually striking focal point or immersive atmosphere. Here are some key points to consider when it comes to hanging mural wallpapers:

Measurement and Preparation: Start by measuring the wall accurately to determine the size of the mural wallpaper you’ll need. It’s crucial to take precise measurements to ensure the mural fits the wall properly. Prepare the wall by cleaning it thoroughly, removing any existing wallpaper, and smoothing out any imperfections.

Ordering and Printing: Mural wallpapers are typically custom-made based on the specific dimensions and design you choose. Many companies offer custom printing services, allowing you to select an image or design or even create your own. Make sure to provide accurate measurements and any specific requirements to the printing company.

Installation Method: There are generally two installation methods for mural wallpapers: paste-the-wall and paste-the-paper. With the paste-the-wall method, you apply adhesive directly to the wall and then carefully position the wallpaper onto the glued surface. Paste-the-paper involves applying adhesive to the back of the wallpaper and then hanging it on the wall. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the recommended installation method for your specific mural wallpaper.

Wall Preparation: Before hanging the mural wallpaper, ensure that the wall is smooth, clean, and dry. Fill in any holes or cracks and sand the surface if needed. Applying a primer can help create a smooth base for better wallpaper adhesion.

Panel Alignment: Mural wallpapers often come in multiple panels that need to be aligned correctly to create a seamless image. Number or label each panel before starting the installation. Start from the center of the wall and work your way outwards, carefully matching the patterns or elements of the design at the seams.

Trimming and Smoothing: Once the panels are in place, trim any excess wallpaper at the top and bottom using a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. Smooth out the wallpaper from the center to the edges, eliminating any air bubbles or wrinkles. A wallpaper smoothing tool or a plastic squeegee can be helpful for this step.

Finishing Touches: After the mural wallpaper is installed and smooth, double-check the seams and edges to ensure they are secure and aligned properly. If necessary, use a seam roller to press down the edges for better adhesion. Clean off any excess adhesive with a damp sponge or cloth.

Mural wallpaper hanging can be a bit more challenging than traditional wallpaper installation due to the larger size and intricate design.
