Wallpaper Decorating & Installation FAQs
Should you see seams in wallpaper?
Professional wallpaper installations should never result in visible seams. When wallpaper is installed correctly, seams should be invisible, or near invisible from top to bottom. Visible seams are most often caused by three common mistakes:
Incorrect seam butting – correctly butted seams should be tight and close. In installations where correct techniques have not been used often result in visible seams.
Incorrect use of seam roller - If seam rollers are used incorrectly, or not used at all, seams are often visible in the finished installation. Those using seam rollers often ‘press out’ more glue than should be removed, leaving a gap once excess glue is removed.
Sizing issues – Incorrect sizing commonly leads to seams or gaps between wallpaper rolls.

How do I calculate how much wallpaper I need?
Usually, the amount of paper used in a room will depend on the wall area, pattern drop, anticipated wastage, unpapered area, and usable yield. A common formula used to calculate the amount of paper used involves multiplying the measurements for the height and width of the wall, totalling the area of paper needed in square feet.
John Bree Decorating uses its tried and tested “experience = least paper required” formula to ensure that you get the most efficient wallpapering for your room.
Is wallpaper cheaper than paint?
Both wallpaper and paint can vary greatly in price, with wallpaper being more expensive on average as a result of the purchasing format, and the number of supplies and labour costs associated with installation. Paint tends to be cheaper on average, as a result of the fewer supplies needed for installation, and its ease of application. Having noted this, it is important to consider that there are high-end varieties of paint, which may be similarly expensive, or higher in price than wallpaper, and cheaper varieties of wallpaper, which may be installed on a DIY basis, decreasing prices significantly.
The real cost of both paint and wallpaper can come from improper application. The wallpaper hangers at Bree’s Decorating can utilise both to present a flawless finish, at a great price.
Can I wallpaper over existing paint?
The specialists at John Bree Decorating always recommend the removal of old wallpaper or paint wherever possible in order to achieve the best possible finish – however, we do recognise that there are situations in which this is not the best course of action. In certain cases, removing existing wallpaper can highlight flaky paint or brickwork, or even add to existing issues with plaster. It is integral to consider property history when considering wallpaper removal.
John Bree Decorating is proud to offer wallpaper hanging consultations, which can assist in establishing the best course of action in the case of a risky wallpaper removal project.
Does wallpaper keep a room warmer?
Standard varieties of wallpaper are not thought to provide any thermal benefit, and will not act as an insulator. With this being said, there are thermal wallpaper options available, most of which can reduce home heating time by up to 65%, and reduce energy consumption by up to 36% through heat retention. The wallpaper hangers John Bree Decorating is highly experienced in the installation of thermal wallpaper and will be happy to discuss the benefits of insulating layers or thermal wallpaper for your room at a free consultation.
Will wallpaper cover bad walls?
Wallpaper cannot be used to cover bad walls without preparation work being undertaken. Arter the bad or damaged wall has been successfully prepared, wallpaper may be used to mask any remaining flaws, especially when the correct design is selected. The wallpaper hangers at John Bree Decorating smooth your walls during the preparation, to ensure that your new wall is not compromised by any existing flaws.
If you’re planning on masking a bad wall through the application of wallpaper, ensure the best possible finish, by contacting John Bree Decorating today.
