How do I install and remove wallpaper?
The design of wall decorations has evolved thanks to the new modifications that designers have made and the new look of graphic designers. Technology is also being used to support this renaissance of wall décor by revisiting traditional installation and printing techniques. No more papers tearing at every wrong move and no more air bubbles.
From now on, the installation of a decor is simplified. Indeed, tapestries are made of resistant materials, and sometimes even coated with glue beforehand. The latter is specially designed to adhere easily to any surface. However, a preliminary cleaning of the wall is necessary to ensure that it is clean and free of debris, so that the ornamental panel can bond firmly and securely.

Prepare your wall well before installation
Before installing the wallpaper, it is essential to prepare the ground well. The wall should be as smooth as possible, clean and dry. Fill any holes with finishing plaster, sand and smooth the wall. Once your surface is ready, you can use our instructions to guide you through the installation process: from cutting to size to gluing to laying the last strip...
If you use another glue than the one sold on Scenolia, refer to the instructions on the jar. Check that the nature of your wall (plasterboard, cement, paint, etc.) is suitable for the glue for a good hold.
If your wall is already covered with old wallpaper, remove it. Non-woven paper can be "ripped off" dry or with a special product such as a spray can that can be found in DIY shops.
Tapestry back on top of the trends
The art of wall decorating has been somewhat sidelined for some time, but in recent years it has returned to the forefront of trends. More than a simple façade to hide the imperfections of the walls, it becomes a decorative element in its own right. It is also ideal for setting the tone of a company's premises or a restaurant, or for conveying a company's brand image with subtlety and finesse. Many people have also been won over by this new trend thanks to the introduction of new installation techniques and new materials, which are more ecological, high-quality, easier to install and easier to maintain.
Several developments have boosted the wallpaper market:
- Looking for a new material? high quality and easy to applynon-woven paper. This thin, strong paper is now the best-selling material. It offers a nice visual effect and a good quality/price ratio/.
- A new installation method: without glue! The novelty is the fact that the material is pre-glued. Pre-glued non-woven paper has the big advantage that you don't have to buy glue. No need to worry about how much glue you need, which one to choose... It is already present on the back of the label. By simply spraying water on the back of the paper, the glue is activated.
- A new finish: the monobloc. Exclusive to Scenolia, the one-piece wallpaper allows you to install it with peace of mind, with no need to manage connections.
- A new accessory: the suspension bar. The wallpaper can now be hung on the wall with a hanging kit. Easy to install, the cover slides into the kit and is fixed with a simple reinforced plastic bar. With two small hooks on the wall, the wallpaper seems to hang. Unlike glued installation, the image is slightly offset from the wall (1.5 cm, the width of the kit). This new accessory allows you to replace your wallpaper very quickly, without having to go through the process of removing the old decor.
- The quest for customisation has also accelerated the wallpaper market: printing a large-format souvenir photo means having a unique and personal interior. This new technology, which arrived a few years ago, allows all photography enthusiasts to be real artists and display their work in their homes!
Now that you know all the secrets, all you have to do is stick your new non-woven paper to the wall. Over time, if you feel like changing your decor, it is not difficult to remove these giant stickers. Simply loosen one corner with a spatula and gently pull the rest dry. Without leaving any residue on your wall, it allows you to install a new wallpaper right away.
