How to hang glitter wallpaper
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Abraham Lincoln
When you invest in a luxury wallpaper of any kind it’s vital that it is hung by an experienced, (preferably professional) decorator. Glitter wallcoverings are no different and we recommend that you spend a few minutes watching our helpful YouTube video which has some advice on how to install glitter wallpaper, as it’s a little different to standard wallpaper.
Tips for how to hang glitter wallpaper
We’ve also compiled some useful notes and instructions to run through including the importance of checking your products thoroughly first of all. You’ll need to hang your glitter wallpaper in sequential order (in the same direction it comes off the roll) so the colour is consistent across the wall. Don’t infill with offcuts and don’t allow glue to go on the glitter. Use our adhesive for best results, hang in threes and don’t trim until they’ve settled for at least an hour. Trim vertically within 5 minutes. Make sure you’re using the recommended tools including good, sharp cutting blades and it’ll be easy and hassle-free. You’ll need to use a ‘cut and splice’ hanging method to make sure your walls are seamless.
“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.” Steve Jobs
Following the recommended preparation and hanging instructions are essential for a fabulous finish you’ll be proud of. It’s mostly common sense and nothing that will faze a seasoned professional. The Glitterwall wall-covering comes in lovely wide pieces so it’s actually very satisfying and quick to hang.
