Wallpaper Guide

Munks + Me wallpaper is made to order so please expect up to two weeks (7-10 working days) for your order to arrive.  Please note that there may be instances where the production time is longer for bespoke designs but you will be notified of any such delays.

Delivered Monday-Friday (excluding bank or public holidays).

When selecting your wallpaper size, please make sure you double check the measurements before putting them in or emailing them to us, as our wallpapers are made to order and cannot be returned, so this is a very important step. We also recommend you add an extra 5cm to the total height and the width, as walls and ceilings are often not straight and we need to allow for trimming. If you are unsure, please contact us via our contact us form and we will gladly assist you.

Our wallpaper is printed on the highest quality non-woven paper.  It is printed in 96cm panels making it much easier to hang!

 

WALLPAPER SAMPLES

If you would like to see a sample before purchasing your wallpaper, please contact us and we will gladly send one out to you. Please note that we scale down our mural and repeat pattern sample designs, to ensure that you have visibility of as much of the design and colours in the sample as possible. The true scale of the mural or repeat pattern is what you will see on the wallpaper product page online.

Please also note that colours may vary slightly between the sample and production, as they will have been printed in different print batches.

NON-WOVEN WALLPAPER HANGING INSTRUCTIONS

Please read these instructions carefully before hanging your wallpaper or mural. It is advisable that a professional decorator is used.

PREPARATION

  • Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
  • Walls should be dry, clean and even.
  • Walls should have at least one coat of primer on them before applying the wallpaper, to ensure a strong adhesion.
  • Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper before applying the adhesive.

PASTING AND HANGING

  • Please ALWAYS lay out the wallpaper on the floor first before you hang it to make sure the panels all line up and match perfectly.
  • Please ALWAYS start the hanging from left to right hanging first PANEL A, B, C and so on (like reading a book)
  • This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallpaper.
  • A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the wall non-woven papers should be used.
  • Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than width of the paper.
  • Butt joints and use a decorators brush to smooth down the wall covering, working from the center to the edges to express air bubbles.
  • Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
  • No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wall covering.
  • Paste will damage the surface. We cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
  • Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.

CARING FOR YOUR WALLPAPER

The wallpaper should be cleaned by dusting with a clean dry brush or by brush accessory on a vacuum cleaner.
