How to Wallpaper Your Laundry Room

  1. Sometimes wallpaper panels come on a large roll, and you have to cut each panel from the roll. If necessary, start by cutting the panels.

  2. Starting from a corner on the left, mark where the right edge of your first wallpaper panel will go. Leave an inch or so of excess paper on the left edge to account for crooked corners/walls. Use a laser level and/or level to draw a plumb line where the right edge will meet up.

  3. Once the sections are cut, mix the paste. There are many different types of pasted wallpapers. This one came with a powder that you mix with water, then roll it or paint it onto the wall.

  4. Roll or brush the paste directly onto the wall in the area of your first panel. Be sure the paste covers the entire panel, so it sticks well. I add extra to the edges to ensure they are securely stuck.

  5. Add the first panel of wallpaper to the wall. Remember to overlap a bit at the corner and the ceiling because there is a good chance the wall and ceiling will not be plumb/level. This will be helpful when you're trying to ensure the entire wall is covered.

how to wallpaper your laundry room Step-by-step guide on wallpapering your laundry room.

  1. Run your smoothing tool over each section, starting from the top middle and working your way downward and outward. Smooth the panel well before moving onto the next one. This removes all the air bubbles and the extra paste behind the wallpaper.

  2. If you are using a wallpaper pattern that is designed to meet up edge to edge, be careful to line them up perfectly. Others are made to overlap. Just follow the directions for your wallpaper. It's essential to do this step right, or your wallpaper might look strange, there may be a gap, or your pattern may not match up.

  3. To get a nice clean-cut edge on your wallpaper, use a straight edge and knife to cut any excess wallpaper. Be sure to have plenty of extra blades because they dull quickly when cutting wallpaper.

  4. Continue this process with the second panel and so on until the space you have chosen to wallpaper is complete. It's that simple!

Tips for Wallpapering Your Laundry Room

  • If you can recruit a friend to help, do it! An extra set of hands can be incredibly helpful.
  • One advantage of pasted paper over peel and stick is that you can move it around on the wall a bit as you are trying to get it in the right spot.
  • If you are installing wallpaper on a wall with lights, remove the lights first; it is much easier to wallpaper with them removed.
  • While wallpaper installation isn't difficult, it's easy to get frustrated. Remember to relax, take your time, and take a break if needed.

What about corners when you are wallpapering?

Don't worry if your corners don't line up perfectly. It's nearly impossible because corners are never perfectly plumb. The slight misalignment won't be noticeable, especially when you look at the bigger picture of the whole room.

How do I remove the wallpaper down the line?

Gone are the days of difficult wallpaper removal. If you want to take down your wallpaper, all you need to do is run over it with a damp sponge or cloth. The moisture reactivates the paste, allowing you to peel it off easily. Then, wash your walls, and you're done!
