9 Tips to Successfully Install your Wall Graphics


Applying graphics, paper or coverings to your walls is a great way to enhance your space or to transform a room. To ensure you get the best performance from your interior wall graphics and to deliver a successful installation, we’ve compiled a few of our eays-to-follow application tips:

 

Pre-Installation Assessment

A pre-installation assessment is the first thing to do before applying any wall graphics. Ensure all your walls and surfaces are clean and smooth prior to installation.

 

Paints

Satin eggshell is usually the most preferred type of paint for wall applications, as matt paint can generally mean your surface is coarser and can reduce the bond of your adhesive. Try to avoid applying graphics to easy-clean or stain resistant paints, or paints with low VOC or low latex properties. For any doubts over the type of paint used, ensure to prime your walls or trial a piece of media to your surface and leave for 48-72 hours, to ensure it properly bonds to your wall.

 

Freshly Plastered Walls

To ensure there is no moisture present in the walls we recommend waiting 4 weeks after plastering. We then recommend sealing your walls with a water-based primer and two coats of satin eggshell paint.

 

Freshly Painted Walls

For freshly painted walls, follow the manufacture’s guidelines on how long it takes to fully cure. If this isn’t available, we recommend waiting at least 2 weeks before installing your graphics.
