7 Tips You Need To Know Before Hanging Wallpaper

Wallpaper is back!  But before you DIY this project, here are some invaluable tips that will make hanging wallpaper so much easier.

One of the biggest trends in decorating is wallpaper.  You heard me right.  I know that many of you are yelling “NO” at your phone or computer, but it’s true.  Despite the fact that poorly applied wallpaper can be a devil to remove, people everywhere are delving right in to the world of paper once again.  And I have to admit, some of the results are downright stunning.

We recently went to a designer showcase in a nearby neighborhood and there was wallpaper everywhere.  Even on ceilings!  And it was absolutely beautiful.



If you are tempted to go this route, we are here to tell you, you can do this yourself.  Just make sure to prep your walls properly and TAKE YOUR TIME.  That’s one of the most important tips that Hymns and Verses has for you.  She recently wallpapered several spaces in her house and look how pretty!



Her tips for hanging wallpaper include:

  • Choose a quality wallpaper
  • Measure twice
  • Know your wallpaper
  • Have the right tools
  • Apply each length of paper a little at a time
  • Don’t overlap your seams
  • Take your time


This is her wonderful little powder room, wallpapered above the chair rail, with a bold faux tile pattern.  You can read all about that project here.
