Frequently Asked Questions

Can you paint lining paper?

Yes you can. In fact, decorators will often hang lining paper to paint over, as it gives them a smoother surface to work with. Simply make sure you use vertical hanging for your wall lining paper to make painting simpler. Wait at least 24 hours after hanging your lining paper before applying a coat of paint


Can you put lining paper over wallpaper?

Yes, there is no problem with hanging lining wallpaper over existing wallpaper. However, you should check that the wallpaper is in good condition. You must also check whether the wallpaper is darker than your lining paper, as the colour will show through if this is the case.


Can you wallpaper over painted lining paper?

As long as your painted lining paper is in good condition, there should be no problem with papering over it. Just be careful, as if the tone of your painted lining paper is darker than your new wallpaper, the colour may show through. 


Can you wallpaper over lining paper?

You will be glad to know that wall lining paper is specifically designed for you to wallpaper or paint over it. Thick lining paper covers up imperfections, giving you a smooth surface to work with. It can also act as wallpaper insulation.


Do you need to size lining paper before wallpapering?

Yes, it is important to measure the square footage of your lining paper to make sure it will fit your wall. It is also key to measure the wall beforehand so that you can make sure you purchase enough. 


How do you apply lining paper?

To apply lining paper, you must first check what grade of lining paper you require. The most thick lining paper grades at around 2000, while the thinnest grades at around 800. Your choice should depend on the condition of the walls and whether there are any cracks or other imperfections that need to be covered up. Be careful when choosing your wall lining paper, as you will want to make sure you have enough to fit your walls. Depending on what brand you choose, you may need to apply wallpaper paste to the paper or to the wall itself. A paint roller is the best tool for this process. Once the lengths are measured and cut, it is time to apply your lining wallpaper. Allow it to overlap onto adjacent walls by around 50mm. Do not worry if it overlaps onto the ceiling, as this can be trimmed off. You can create a perfect crease in the corners by using a wallpaper smoother. Once this is done, peel the lining paper back and cut along the overlap so there is none in any of the corners.
