Our Process

We will work with you to help achieve your desired design.

We will fully prepare your room.  Preferably an empty room but we understand that is not always possible, so we can ensure your furniture is protected and fully covered.

All walls are stripped as required, walls treated filled sanded and fully prepared. We will seal your walls prior to wallpapering or painting by "Sizing" them to ensure no sinking or miss alignment of  the wallpaper. 

Applying sizing changes the quality of your walls to make wallpaper application easier. Sizing creates a slippery, slightly glossy surface on your wall. This texture makes it easier to move the pieces of wallpaper around therefore ensuring an accurate match when applying patterned papers, since they slide into place more readily. Sizing can also help the wallpaper grip the wall better, and additionally make it easier to peel off wallpaper later should you decide to remove it. 

All wood work is sanded, undercoated and glossed as required, doors, skirting boards and picture rails as necessary.
