Make sure that your wallpaper delivery is intact and has not been damaged in transit. For best results use the Murabond products and follow the instructions to the tee.

Make sure that you have adequate lighting – so that you can inspect the material properly while you are hanging it and after it is in position. The cool thing is that it is re-positionable – so if something has gone slightly awry – you can sort it there and then.

Make sure that the area you are hanging the wallpaper is at least 12°C (55°F) … and as you are using an adhesive paste on the walls, make sure that there is good ventilation.


Brush off area to be covered with a stiff bristle brush to remove all dirt and loose material.

All surface marks should be removed using a detergent solution.

Allow to dry thoroughly before applying the wallpaper

Anything really gross like mould or algae on the surface should be treated with disdain and a fungicidal wash following instructions on the product. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying 

Any holes, cracks or defects in the surface should be filled with a good quality filler, smoothed out and allowed to dry.

Just remember … a dry surface is the right surface – so if you have to make repairs … be patient! And let it dry.


The recommended adhesive for this product is Murabond Light on an absorbent surface

Apply the glue or wallpaper paste on the back of the wallpaper and then on the wall.

Use a soft spatula to apply the wallpaper to the prepared surface using a smooth up-and-down motion. Take care not to squeeze the adhesive out at the edges.

Let the wallpaper settle for about 15 minutes before trimming the top and bottom.
