Shopping and Product

Q: What paste should I use on my wallpaper?

A: Different wallpapers require different paste. Most manufacturers’ recommendation are on the back of the wallpaper label.

Q: What size are the wallpaper samples?

The price of the sample, which includes VAT and postage to the UK, will be displayed next to 'Order Sample' and at the checkout.

Q: What size is a roll of wallpaper?

A: Most of our wallpapers are standard UK sizes approximately 52 or 53 centimetres (20.5 or 21 inches) wide and 10 metres (33 feet or 11 yards) long. Please check the size of the wallpaper on the product page before placing your order and if you have any questions please do contact us at sales@decorsave.co.uk.

Q: What does the pattern match on my wallpaper mean?

A: Wallpaper is printed on rollers and therefore every wallpaper has a repeat, but sometimes on plain or striped wallpaper the repeat does not matter.

Some common pattern repeats are:

  • Straight Match - a straight match means that the pattern matches across the width of the wallpaper. The label of the wallpaper will tell you how often the pattern repeats e.g. 53cm.
  • Offset Match - sometimes called a half drop, this means the match is obtained by halving the repeat. For example a label might state a 53/26.5cm offset match. This means the design repeats every 53cm and the point at which they match from left to right is every 26.5cm.
  • Free Match - means there is no matching required. It is the easiest product to hang, as no matter how the strips of wallpaper are hung, no visible join or seams need to be worried about. This also reduces the amount of wastage.
Q: What is a batch number?

A: Wallpaper is printed in batches of rolls. It is important to have the same batch number, to ensure colours match exactly. The batch number is usually located on the wallpaper label close to the pattern number. Remember batch numbers also apply to white wallpapers, as different batches can be different shades of white.

Q: Can I buy the tools to do the whole job?

A: Yes you can. We have a full range of decorating tools available on our tools page.

Q: Why do some papers say to paste the wall?

A: Technology in wallpaper manufacture has advanced since the original classic papers. The introduction of polyester fibres in paper pulp means this special paper does not expand when wet and therefore does not need to soak before being hung. The adhesive can therefore be applied directly to the wall. However you can still paste the paper in the traditional way but remember there is no need to soak.

In short this is now an easy, quick to use wallcoverings, especially for beginners, so look out for 'Paste the Wall' products. Paste the wall paper is also easier to strip when you want to change.

Q: Must I use a lining paper?

A: Lining paper gives a perfect base on which to hang wallpaper and disguises any minor imperfections in the wall. You must use the same adhesive for your lining paper as your top paper. If you are using a 'Paste the Wall' paper, use a paste on the wall lining paper. Cross lining means hanging lining paper horizontally to give an even finish when the top wallpaper is hung over it.

Q: How do I get horizontal stripes?

A: This is usually a standard striped paper hung horizontally and gives a very different effect. A design tip to perhaps give width to a narrow room.

Q: How do I know if my choice of wallpaper is suitable for my room?

Bathrooms are suited to vinyl wallpapers as they resist moisture and are splash-proof. However if you bathroom is well ventilated then any wallpaper can be used with care. No wallpaper is recommended for use in direct contact with water, such as to line a shower or round a sink.

Kitchens are very similar to bathrooms, so ideally a vinyl wallpaper would be recommended, but any wall covering can be used with care in a well ventilated room where it does not come into direct contact with heat or water.

Q: Do you charge VAT on wallpaper?

A: Yes. All price are inclusive of VAT our company VAT number is GB 184 428 194.
