Maybe you live in a rental and you’re not allowed to permanently alter the walls. Perhaps you just want a change of pace in your bedroom for a little while. Whatever your reasoning, temporary, removable wallpaper is a great way to add a spark of style to a room. The fear of messing up as you install it is far less than if you were installing traditional wallpaper, but it’s still a good idea to be armed with a few tips and tricks going in.
You’ll have to start by identifying a vertical line. You should use a level; using your corner or molding is a bad idea, especially in an older house. It doesn’t hurt to draw a straight horizontal line too, just to make the job of lining up the top of your wallpaper a little easier. Then, peel a small strip of wallpaper from its backing. Line the strip up with your lines and press it firmly onto the surface.
Once the top is secure, all you have to do is grab the wallpaper backing under the roll and slowly pull it down while continuing to press the wallpaper to the wall. Be sure to smooth as you go – especially at the edges – or you’ll end up with lumps. A second pair of hands to do the smoothing would be a big help at this stage. The tiles are designed to match up perfectly at each edge, so when you’re ready for the next tile, you just have to line it up and repeat!
