Checking the Mural for Fit
Click the ‘Layout Diagram’ picture for your selected mural product to view an outline drawing with all critical dimensions shown. You can download this diagram on the Information Tab. You should use this information to verify the fitting and setting out of your mural onto your wall space and around the door (if applicable).
It is important to check that the overall width and height of the mural will fit your wall space. If applicable, it is also important to determine that the width and height of your door frame and door all fit comfortably with the mural dimensions indicated.

Successful installation is easily achievable using a few basic tools and readily available wallpaper pastes. For your guidance, full Instructions and a Setting Out Diagram are supplied with every mural product. You may also view and download our How To Install Guides that include a list of the tools you will need. These instructions also suggest how best to prepare your wall and door surfaces for installation. You may also like to watch our Instructional Videos (see below) to see how easy it is to install our wallpapers and prints. Please also refer to our material specifications for information about suitable wall finishes.
Our traditional wallpapers are applied using the ‘paste the wall’ method. The wallpaper ‘drops’ are all provided 50mm oversize, and so may be trimmed to fit irregular wall edges and around door frames. Adjacent ‘drops’ are applied overlapping each other and then trimmed through the overlap to provide a seamless joint.
Simply locate the ‘drop’ in the correct position, gradually peel the backing paper away and down, and smooth the wallpaper down as you go. The ‘drops’ are all oversize and may be trimmed to fit your wall space. When using our Laminated wallpaper, adjacent ‘drops’ are left to overlap and do not need to be further trimmed.
For our Repositionable Wallpaper, adjacent 'drops' are applied overlapping each other and then trimmed through the overlap to provide a seamless joint. This wallpaper may be re-applied if you do not get it right first time.
Our vinyl Door Prints are produced 25mm oversize. Locate the print in position, tape to the top of the door, and smooth down as you pull the backing paper away and down. Then trim to the door edges.
