Measuring for Paper Illusions Wallpaper

Posted in Product Information at 12:55 am by admin

Each roll of PaperIllusion covers an 8′ x 9′ wall…we say 75 square feet of wall space with overlap (the roll is actually 85 square feet).

  1. Measure each wall that will be papered (height x width) [ie. 2 walls are 8′ high x 10′ wide, 2 walls are 8′ high x 9′ wide]
  2. Multiply to get total square feet of wall space. [ie. (8 x 10) + (8 x 10) + (8 x 9) + (8 x 9)= 304]
  3. Measure any openings (doors & windows) in those walls in the same manner to calculate total square feet of openings to deduct from total wall space. [ie. 1 window 3′ high x 4′ wide, 1 door 7′ high x 3′ wide => (3 x 4) + (7 x 3) = 33]
  4. Deduct the openings from total wall space to get total coverage needed. [ie. 304 – 33 = 271]
  5. Divide total coverage by 75 to get number of boxes needed (round up). [ie. 271/75 = 3.61 => 4 boxes]

PaperIllusion over Wallpaper or Painted Walls

Posted in Product Information at 12:19 am by admin

Q. Can you use Paper Illusions over old wallpaper without stripping the old paper?

Yes, you can, provided the walls are cleaned well (no oil residue, from cigarette smoke for example) and sized/primed properly. Size your walls by applying a wallpaper primer.

Q. My paneling has been primed and painted over years ago. Do I need to re-prime or can I just start to hang paper illusions?

Of the paneling has wallpaper primer topped with a coat of flat latex, the PaperIllusion should stick just fine. The manufacturer recommends always coating the wall with a good grade universal wallpaper primer prior to installing PaperIllusion.

PaperIllusion over Paneling

Posted in Product Information at 12:13 am by admin

Q. We are in the process of getting our home ready to sell and have a family room with ugly dark paneling. What steps are necessary to have the walls ready for your product? Do we have to fill in the grooves or do a lot of sanding?

This product bridges the gap provided the grooves are less than 1/4″. No special preparations needed. We’ve done it and it works.

To prep the panelled walls you’ll need to wash the paneled walls thoroughly. I strongly recommend TSP available at you local home improvement store. Clean them well, especially if previously exposed to cigarette/cigar smoke and thoroughly rinse.

Next, you’ll need to seal or prime the paneling. This prevents any oils from the paneling to bleed through and provides a stable undercoat and moisture barrier for the wallpaper adhesive. I highly recommend Zinnser Guardz. A bit pricey but it’s the best. Any other high quality primer/sealer will also work. Just remember you get what you pay for.

Please, don’t even think about skipping these preparatory steps. Without cleaning and priming the walls, all the work you do thereafter will suffer, no matter what product you use.

Now, round up all the kids you know and have fun papering your room with this product. It goes up very fast and everyone says it is “very easy” to apply. Enjoy!
