- Smoothing tool.
- Measuring tape.
- Kitchen knife.
- Mild cleanser.
- A pencil.
- A scale.
Prepare the walls
As there will be some switchboards on the walls, so you should cover them first. You can use transparent tape to do that or cover them with plastic. Now clean the walls, because any thick thing on the wall will make it difficult to smooth the wallpaper. You can use a scrapping tool to clear the walls.
Mark the wall
Now you will measure the width and the length of the wall with the help of a scale and then measure the wallpaper. Then again, you will mark the wall according to the available measurements of the wallpaper. In some cases, you will get a wide sheet that you will cut; you can skip the last sub-step.
Now stand on a stool so that you easily reach the top of the wall. Now remove the adhesive cover of the peel and stick wallpaper, do not strip the entire back cover; reveal only a section of it. Now paste the uncovered edge on the wall.
Gradually uncover the entire strip, and smooth it with a scale. Repeat it unless the entire wall is covered with the removable wallpaper.
