  12. How do I measure my walls? Measuring doesn't have to be stressful affair. There's only two meausrements we need. The width and height! If you follow these guidelines -  you can be confident you'll order enough material to cover your wall. Alternatively, you can hire our team to come and measure your walls for you. Our team will measure any walls in your house and provide Stories For Walls with a PDF document and photos of your walls so we can provide you with accurate quotes. You can purchase our measuring service here.

  13. Help! My wallpaper has fallen down. What do I do now?
    If your wallpaper falls down, this is evidence that your paint surface is repelling the adhesive and needs to be sanded back and painted again with a water based primer. Both our Peel & Stick Removable Wallpaper and our Self Adhesive Vinyl Wallpaper both have specific paint surface requirements to ensure they stick to your wall long term. Preparing your wall correctly for your preferred wallpaper material is the customer's responsibility. You can read more about these wall surface requirements here.

    If you installed our Peel & Stick Removable Wallpaper and it falls down, do not despair. Simply place your wallpaper back onto it's backing paper and re-prepare your wall correctly. Our peel & Stick Wallpaper is incredibly versatile. You can screw it up, it can stick to itself and it can be reapplied again and again provided you keep the adhesive side clean. Once you have re-prepared your wall using a paint that does not have stain resistant qualities, (a simple water based primer will do just fine), it will stick to your wall correctly.

    If our installers installed your Self Adhesive Vinyl Wallpaper and it falls down, please let us know and we can try and help. However please understand that we do not  take any responsibility for your wallpaper falling down due to your wall surface repelling the adhesive. As mentioned, all wall preparation is the responsibility of the customer. In the past, our team have successfully added some double sided tape to keep self adhesive wallpapers sticking to customer's walls. However, if the double sided tape does not work, we recommend removing the wallpaper, re preparing your wall and then reprinting and installing again at the customer's cost.
