Step 1 Check you have fitted all the lights that need to be
fitted before you start decorating and cut all your lighting grooves.
If you have not yet read our lighting guide you should do this before
you start wallpapering.

Step 2 Find out how many sheets of paper you need.
Measure your room before buying any paper to find out how many sheets
you will need. Sheet sizes can vary so find out the size of the wall
paper sheets before you start. Bare in mind that pattern sheets or
sheets with a border will have to match up so you may need more to be
able to match them correctly.

I normally find that when using a single wall paper in a room I
need one sheet per wall if the sheets are big enough to cover a wall.
If I am using two wall papers I usually need two or three sheets of
each paper.
If you have a front opening house you also have to decide if
you will paper the front wall that opens and if so account for this.
Always buy more paper than you need in case you make a mistake.
Colours can vary slightly between batches of doll house wallpaper and
you might not get an exact match.

Step 3 Next you must cut your paper to size. Cut the paper to
the required size. The full size of the wall if using one style of
paper or if you are using two cut to the length of the wall and the
required height. When using two papers overlap the top paper over the
bottom slightly to make sure there are no gaps.

Make sure you use a ruler to get a straight edge. Wall paper
should already have a straight, right angle corner so you can measure
from an existing edge.

Step 4 Before the doll house wallpaper goes up there are a few things you must do.

All wires from electric's should be in grooves to stop them sticking up under the wall paper.

Wires should be held in place with a thin piece of masking tape.

Ceilings should be painted

Step 5 You are now ready to hang your wall paper. When
Hanging doll house wallpaper you need a paste that allows the paper to
move freely you can get special wallpaper paste for hanging dolls house
wallpaper.
An alternative is to use normal household wallpaper paste but this can be a bit lumpy for dolls houses.


Paste the wall of the dolls house and not the paper. If you paste the paper it might become too moist and will tear more easily.


Once you have pasted the wall position the wall paper and
flatten with the palm of your hand onto the wall. At this stage you can
slide the paper around until you get it in its rightful position. Once
in the right place flatten and bubbles or creases with the palm of you
hand. You may need to apply a little extra paste at the edges.

Leave to dry for a day before you do any other work to avoid ripping.

Good advice.
Another thing that i do, especially if I have some odd shaped walls, is to make a template and then cut my paper. I usually make this out of printer paper as I can crease that at the corners of walls and where ceiling and walls meet. Then use that as a pattern. I then cut just a wee bit bigger and try it on the wall before pasting. Sometimes I cut card stock or light cardboard and paste the paper onto that then paste it to the wall. Some people do it this way and just tack (with 2 sided tape) it onto the wall if they have electrified their house and may need to get to the wiring in case of problems in the future or want to be able to redecorate.

on my most recent house, i used normal household wallpaper, as i found the print was small enough, so pasted the paper with normal wallpaper paste and had no problems doing it. Smile

Thanks for the info on wallpapering. I have always had trouble in this area. It always ends up peeling after application. I find this information to be very helpful. Maybe I'll have more luck in the future.

A house is a home, building or structure that is a dwelling or place for habitation by human beings. The term includes many kinds of dwellings ranging from rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes to free standing individual structures.[1] In some contexts, "house" may mean the same as dwelling, residence, home, abode, lodging, accommodation, or housing, among other meanings.
