FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Can I install wallpaper myself, or should I hire a professional?

While hiring a professional is always an option, installing removable wallpaper is a relatively easy DIY project. With the right tools and a little patience, most homeowners can achieve great results on their own.

How do I know how much wallpaper to buy for my accent wall?

Measure the height and width of your wall and calculate the total square footage. Each roll of Walloor wallpaper covers approximately 177 square feet, so divide your wall's square footage by 177 to determine the number of rolls needed. It's always a good idea to purchase a little extra to account for pattern matching and potential mistakes.

Can I install wallpaper over textured walls?

While it's possible to install wallpaper over slightly textured walls, it's best to apply it to smooth, clean surfaces for optimal adhesion and a seamless finish. If your walls have significant texture, consider smoothing them out with spackle or drywall compound before installing the wallpaper.

How do I remove removable wallpaper without damaging my walls?

One of the benefits of removable wallpaper is that it can be easily peeled off without damaging your walls. Start at a corner and gently pull the wallpaper away from the wall, working slowly to avoid tearing. If any adhesive residue remains, use a damp sponge or cloth to wipe it away.
