The best wall texture for applying Luxe Walls’ adhesive wallpaper successfully is a smooth, properly primed, painted and cured wallboard with little or no surface variation.

It is important to repair any damage on the existing wall before installation, such as loose paint and damaged, cracked or inconsistent surfaces.

Failure to do so may result in your wallpaper not sticking to your wall correctly, or could potentially cause damage when removing your wallpaper.

So what exactly do you need to know about our adhesive wall art?

Ensure all painted walls have been processed and cured as per the paint manufacturer’s requirements. Failure to follow the paint manufacturer’s requirements may lead to adhesion or removal issues.

TIP: Always test paint/adhesive compatibility prior to installation.

Please avoid the following paint finishes when installing Luxe Wall’s wallpapers:

  1. Flat or matte finishes
  2. Paints containing Teflon and chlorinated waxes and silicones
  3. Heavily textured paints
  4. Oil alkyd primers and enamels
  5. Existing wallpaper

Finally, we recommend asking a friend to help, as it can be tricky to hold the paper up and peel the backing away by yourself. Invite a friend around to help you install, and then admire your new walls.
