Key Advice When Installing Twill Wallpaper

Posted on

Twill is a very popular choice when it comes to wallpaper. It has a unique texture and comes in many colors. If you want to install twill wallpaper with success and love looking at it later, then keep these setup tips in mind.

Order the Right Amount

Before you can get to putting wallpaper on walls, you need to know how much to order. You want to be fairly accurate with this in order to keep costs as low as possible while having enough wallpaper to complete your project.

You'll want to take measurements of the room where the wallpaper is going. If you're accurate, knowing how much wallpaper to order won't be very difficult.

There is the option of hiring a pro to gather these measurements if you're apprehensive about getting them wrong, whether it's because you don't have a lot of experience measuring things or you just don't have the proper equipment.

Use a High-Quality Paint Roller For Paste Application

To get twill wallpaper to stick on your walls, paste will have to be applied to the backside. If you want the paste application process to go smoothly and be convenient to deal with, then invest in a high-quality paint roller. You want one large enough to where you only have to wipe paste across the back of the twill wallpaper several times.

It's also important that the paint roller doesn't leave behind particles of material because if it did, you would have a hard time getting a smooth finish once the wallpaper is applied to your walls.

Make Sure the Right Paste Is Used

When applying twill wallpaper to walls, you also want to keep in mind the paste you use. Not all types of paste are ideal for every type of wallpaper.

Before you proceed to purchasing paste, see what the manufacturer of your wallpaper recommends. They may already have a paste type and brand in mind. 

If you follow their instructions, then the paste will keep your twill wallpaper in place after you have applied enough pressure to it with the appropriate equipment.

In order to make the most out of twill wallpaper, you need to approach its installation with careful planning and a general outline before beginning any step. Then you'll have fewer issues with installation and the twill wallpaper will look like you want it to look at the end. Contact a company that sells twill wallpaper to learn more.
