The modern way of installing wallpaper is through self-adhesive or peel & stick wallpaper. This method is designed for straightforward DIY installation, eliminating the need for messy glues or water-activated pastes. With this type of wallpaper, you get the convenience of a built-in adhesive that makes installation quick and hassle-free. Furthermore, it allows for effortless removal and repositioning during installation, providing flexibility and convenience in decorating your space. Best of all, there's no need to incur extra costs by hiring a professional; it's intended for DIY enthusiasts.
Our wallpaper offers a convenient departure from traditional long rolls because it comes in pre-cut panels, available in lengths of 1.5mt, 2.5mt, and 3mt. This means you no longer need to measure and pre-cut rolls before installation; simply install the numbered panels and trim them as needed once you've finished.
Attention to Our Valued Customers: The Importance of Wall Preparation
The beauty and longevity of your wallpaper from Tiny Walls largely depends on one crucial step: wall preparation.
Here's what you need to know:
Best Surfaces for Adhesion: Our wallpapers love glass, vinyl, mirrors, and walls that are smooth, with no texture.
Paints to Be Cautious Of: If your walls have 'washable' paints, Teflon components, or low VOCs from brands like Dulux, Haymes Paint, and Wattyl, they might pose challenges for our wallpapers.
Why Prep is Non-Negotiable: If you're uncertain about your wall's paint type, always use a primer. Viponds Prep Coat is our top recommendation to ensure your wall is wallpaper-ready.
For Newly Painted Walls: Please allow a minimum of 30 days for the paint to properly outgas and settle before applying wallpaper. Applying wallpaper prematurely can lead to bubbling, as the paint hasn't had sufficient time to release solvents and cure. Giving it time ensures a smoother wallpaper application!
Safety First: Though our wallpapers are captivating, they aren't toys. Ensure they're placed out of reach from little hands, especially not right above where children sleep.
Lastly, a friendly reminder: Always prime walls, especially if coated with tricky paints. Improper preparation might result in our wallpapers not adhering well.
Unfortunately, we can't take responsibility or offer refunds for wallpapers that don't stick due to this oversight. Proper preparation ensures stunning and lasting results!Thank you for choosing Tiny Walls. Prepare well, and enjoy the transformation!

Why Choose Wallpaper Samples?
Our wallpaper samples are your essential tools for informed decisions. They serve multiple purposes to ensure you're confident in your choice.
The Importance of Samples
Visual Assessment: Wallpaper samples allow you to review your chosen pattern, ensuring it aligns with your vision.
Scale Evaluation: Assess the scale of the design to make sure it fits perfectly in your space.
Colour Confirmation: Ensure the colours and overall design meet your expectations.
Why Purchase a Sample?
Before committing to a full wall installation, it's highly recommended to purchase a sample. Here's why:
Accurate Representation: Screens on mobile phones and computers may not accurately represent colours due to device settings. Samples provide a true representation of your chosen design.
Please note that our wallpapers are custom-made to your specifications. Due to this, they are not refundable for reasons like changing your mind or making the wrong choice.
What's Included in Samples?
Our samples feature a 'to scale' swatch section of your chosen design. They measure 30cm x 30cm.
Not for Precise Colour Matching: Samples are not intended for precise color matching, as slight color variations between print runs can occur.
Not for Paint Testing: They are also not suitable for testing paint adhesion to self-adhesive wall coverings.
If you encounter adhesion issues, consult your paint manufacturer.
If you have specific customisation requests for your final wall purchase, our experienced graphic designers are here to assist you. Please note that additional samples may be necessary to test customisations.
For smaller projects that require a smaller section of wallpaper, feel free to reach out to our friendly team for a personalised quote. We're dedicated to making your wallpaper experience enjoyable and stress-free!
Our products are at their best when applied to smooth, primed surfaces that have been painted with two coats of high-quality paint. It's important to avoid surfaces with aged or chipping paint that requires maintenance.
✓ Surfaces painted with Teflon or Wash and Wear paints may not provide the ideal adhesion for our products, as these paints contain additives that can affect adhesion. If you're uncertain about your wall's paint type, we can recommend a suitable primer that will ensure our products adhere well.
✓ While textured walls may be trendy, our products prefer a smooth surface. The adhesive isn't well-suited to bumpy surfaces, so it's best to opt for a sleek and even wall.
✓ Freshly painted walls need some time to settle. It's advisable to allow at least four weeks for the paint to fully cure and degas before applying our products. This helps prevent unwanted bubbles and ensures our wallpaper lasts longer on your walls.
✓ Before making a commitment, we recommend conducting a trial run with a sample. This way, you can confirm that our colours, quality, and adhesion are a perfect match for your walls. It's also an excellent way to determine if our products are the right fit for your space. Happy decorating!
Our self-adhesive wallpaper can technically be used in laundries and bathrooms, but we do not recommend it for these spaces due to their typically poor ventilation.
While the wallpaper is water-resistant, it is important to note that it is not waterproof. You can clean it with a damp microfiber cloth, but using harsh cleaning agents may affect its quality. When installing or removing the wallpaper, it's crucial to handle it gently to avoid tearing or damage.
While it offers many advantages, we recommend using it in spaces with better ventilation and avoiding prolonged exposure to moisture.
Ever had a change of heart? No worries at all! Our products are designed with flexibility in mind. You can easily peel off and reapply our wallpaper if you decide on a new look. It's super forgiving and user-friendly, even if you scrunch or fold it. Just smooth it back onto your wall, and it's as good as new, without a hint of damage to your wallpaper print. To keep it in top condition, be sure to retain the backing paper for storage, handle it with clean hands, and keep it away from dust.
Absolutely! Freshly painted walls need a little downtime to degas. To make sure your wallpaper adheres perfectly, we advise waiting four weeks after a paint job before installation. Rushing might cause your beautiful designs to lift off the wall or have issues bubbling, and we wouldn't want that!
If you're thinking about changing things again in the future, removing our wallpaper is just as straightforward as installing it. Begin at the top of the panel and gently peel it downwards, almost folding it onto itself. It's essential to take your time – slow and steady is the way to go.
To prevent any damage to your wall or old, flaky paint from coming off, you might find it helpful to use a hairdryer to heat up the adhesive as you peel it off in a slow and gentle downward motion. This technique ensures that the wallpaper stays as close to the wall as possible during removal. Your walls will appreciate the careful approach!
We know that many brands promise damage-free, renter-friendly products, and while we strive for that too, we also recognise that every wall and paint job is unique. In the real world, it's challenging to guarantee a one-size-fits-all solution for every surface. This is precisely why we believe in empowering you with the right information and tools to make the best decision for your specific situation.
Our samples allow you to test our products on your walls, giving you the confidence to make an informed decision that won't risk your rental deposit. While we'd love to promise you a 100% damage-free guarantee, we think it's more important to be honest and helpful. We stand by the quality of our products and their performance on suitable surfaces, but the final decision on suitability lies with you, the one who knows your walls best!
So go ahead, order a sample, see how it feels, and make your choice with confidence. We're here to support you every step of the way in transforming your space into something truly magical!
Our skilled graphic designers can assist you in customising your wallpaper, whether it's adjusting the pattern scale or changing colours to suit your preferences.
If your customisations are extensive, you might need to purchase additional samples to ensure your final design matches your vision.
what our Happy customers are saying...
The Daphne wallpaper was so easy to put up and made a dramatic change to my home office/craft room. Took 1.5 hours all up to hang 4 panels. No mess, no fuss and I can’t see the joins. Very happy with the service from the tiny walls team and there were clear instructions to follow. 100% would recommend and use again.
Great product. Easy to install. Would recommend purchasing the self-adhesive backing as we did as it was a quick process.
