Application Instructions for Lining Paper

  1. Make sure application surfaces are sound, clean and dry. Absorbent surfaces (e.g. new plaster) should be sized. Painted surfaces should be lightly sanded.
  2. Mark a straight line on the wall to position the first length, by using a plumbline or level. When using as a base for decorative wallpaper, it is advisable to apply the lining horizontally. When using as a base for paint it can be applied vertically or horizontally.
  3. Measure and cut lengths allowing extra for trimming at either end.
  4. The rolls offer two surface finishes, either side can be pasted but always use the same side for all lengths used on your project.
  5. Apply adhesive generously and evenly paying particular attention to edges.
  6. Fold pasted lengths, with the pasted surface to the inside and allow to soak for 8-10 minutes or until pliable.
  7. Apply the first length to the guideline. Smooth down with a brush and trim. Remove any adhesive from the face of the paper using a sponge and clean water.
  8. Leave 1mm gap between lengths. Do not overlap (if using as a base for an emulsioned surface do not leave a gap - butt joint).
  9. Allow to dry completely before applying final wallcovering or coating with emulsion - normally 24 hours is sufficient but in some circumstances a longer period may be required.


Use a good quality adhesive. If the lining is being used as a base for decorative wallpaper ensure the adhesive is compatible.

This is a simple wallpaper calculator and should be used as a guide only. You can find the roll width and roll length you are after on the specific product page.
Roll widths are provided in meters (such as 0.5 x 10mtr) so your wall widths and heights should be inputted in meters also.
If you are purchasing an offset match product then you may need a little extra as there may be some waste. If you have any windows or doors in your walls you can simply ignore these. This will give a good estimate of required roll numbers.
