Hanging Wallpaper

There are many different ways to hang wallpaper and this all depends on the style of the actual paper. Some papers require you to paste the paper before hanging other require you to paste the wall instead. There are also different methods for actually hanging the paper, especially with the more expensive style. Most decorators, when hanging, will overlap the paper and splice each join together with a sharp cutting knife instead of the traditionally used butt-join method.

Here at GS Decorating our specialist wallpaper hangers use a completely different method that only the very best wallpaper hangers can do. We hand trim all paper to size first before sticking to the wall. This is an extremely specialist skill that we would not recommend most decorators attempt, let alone the have-a-go DIY’er. Hand trimming wallpaper should only be attempted by highly skilled professionals. Especially when the paper could upwards of £1,000 a roll. It’s defiantly something you want to get done perfectly.

Due to the skill level needed to perform this, only the most time-served master craftsman will attempt this and even the most extremely competent decorators would not be able to do this and would opt instead for the over lap and splice method.

Specialist wallpaper brands we are adept at hanging.

This is not an exhaustive list, we can in effect hang any paper your require from high-end specialist papers such as the metal leaf paper in this post to generalist papers such as Cole and Son, to commercial papers such as Muraspec.
