How to glue

York wallpaper should be glued according to the instructions that come with each roll. The basic steps are the same as when pasting walls with a coating of any other company:

  • first you need to work the walls with soil. Let dry for 6 hours;
  • then you can glue the surfaces, treating both walls and canvases with glue.

However, the peculiarity is precisely when decorating the interior with York wallpaper. If your wall covering has an adhesive base, then it should first be soaked for 20 seconds in water, then folded and left for 6 minutes to soften the adhesive layer. It is recommended to glue on the wall without additional application of the solution, since when the substance applied to the canvas and the glue on the wall interact, a reaction may occur, and an unsightly appearance of stains will appear on the surface.

When pasting walls with paper wallpaper, it is recommended to overlap them by 1-2 m so that when the wallpaper dries, the canvas does not disperse. It is recommended to level the coating on the wall only from top to bottom, without stretching the canvas to the sides, then the deformation of the wallpaper will be minimal, and their shrinkage will also be insignificant.
