Wallpaper makes a statement, which can be intimidating for many people. Our traditional wallpapers are a great choice if you like to stay with one kind of design for the long term and save money on wallpaper. They work better on smooth, dry, clean, and primed walls.

What Is Smooth Unpasted Wallpaper

Smooth unpasted wallpaper is a non-woven traditional wallpaper made of paper pulp material. It has no adhesive on the back. You will need to apply glue on the back before installing it on the wall. The pasting technique produces the longest-lasting results. Unpasted wallpaper typically has a thicker backing, which makes the material more durable and less likely to fall. 

We recommend hiring a professional installer to make the wallpaper installation process smooth and mess-free. Experienced installers can install the wallpaper using suitable glue, which can keep your wallpaper stuck on the wall for long-term results. Also, they know how to handle long prints where you have to apply adhesive yourself.

Traditional wallpaper is simple to remove, but sticky residue may be left behind, which can be easily cleaned later using appropriate solutions like rubbing alcohol or a mixture of isopropyl and water.


We Offer Two Types Of Traditional Unpasted Wallpaper - Smooth Unpasted And Canvas Unpasted.

Installation Tips

  • Check the moisture in the wall. It shouldn't exceed 4%(you can use a moisture meter). Excessive moisture can lead to the growth of mold or mildew, which will not sustain the wallpaper for an extended period.
  • Wallpaper should not be hung over anything that might bleed through the vinyl, such as ballpoint pen markings, wax crayons, ink markers, oil-based stains, or foreign objects.

    It is important to check painted surfaces for pigment bleed-through. It is advised to mark wallpaper or walls with a lead pencil.
  • Glossy surfaces must be sanded until they become dull, or professional R-35 heavy-duty primer should be applied.
  • Install the wallpaper slowly and gently. Seriously you should keep up your patience.
  • Before pasting, hold the strip of wallpaper on the wall and see where you want to paste it and if the pattern matches.
  • When a building is being constructed, wallcovering should be done as a finishing step. Never hang the wallpaper while major renovations, painting, or general construction are ongoing.
