Hi, im wanting to know if its possible to just wallpaper over existing wallpaper on a wall??? Thanks
Hi yes you can as long as the existing pattern is not too embossed ie sticking out .
No what will happen is wall paper underneath will become wet air pockets will form and bleed through new wallpaper best strip old off
No. You need to remove the old wallpaper after then you can put the new one. It's about your quality.
Sure, as long as the existing paper is secure and not peeling away.
Hi you can not wallpaper over wallpaper you need to remove the old wall paper off and makesure the wall is smooth before you put the new wallpaper on
Yes you can wallpaper over existing wallpaper providing the old wallpaper is completely adhered to the wall.
Personally I would not paper over existing wallpaper for many reasons, a few of which are-:
The joints between each piece will be visible.
Depending on where the wallpapering is being done i.e living room, then it'll have to be dirt/dust/nicotine free, that kind of thing.
In a nutshell and to achieve pleasing job, I'd strip the walls and then hang lining paper horizontally prior to hanging the wallpaper vertically.
That is the correct way. However I have known people to bypass the lining paper and just hang the wallpaper.
Hi, you can do it but wouldn't recommend it because if the old paper falls of so will your new paper...
Good day sir/madam
Yess it is possible. I recommend to do it only if you have a non-quoted wallpaper as existing cause then it's much easier that the new paper will stick better.
I wouldn't recommend it as the old paper can flash through. I've if there is flowers etc. Then when you do want to strip it it's double the work lol
It is always best to remove old wallpaper before applying new wallpaper to the walls as it would last longer.
Hi, the answer is no, new wallpaper will never stick together and also old wallpaper will get wet and may be start dropping some where.
You can but it's a dirty way of Decorating.
Soak old wall paper with sugar soap water
Then scrape off
No not in a million years would I ever do or recommend that
Yes you can but it won't bring out the best finish
I would say no don't wallpaper over old one you more likely to have bubbles won't be able to give a good finishing
Not really as it would bubble when emulsion is applied
Stripping old wallpaper is a time-consuming task you may be able to avoid. If the existing wallpaper is firmly adhered to the walls and has a smooth texture, free from any embossing, raised embellishments or flocking, you can add a fresh layer of wallpaper over .But for a quality job and for no problems in the future is better stripping and clean the walls for the new wallpaper
Wouldn't recommend as any imperfections will show up on your new paper ,ie bubbles and joints
You can but better to remove old first
Hi yes its possible as long the old paper it's still sticking properly to the wall
You can only wallpaper over if there is one layer on the wall n u no there's only one layer any more and u have to strip and start fresh
No you can not
Finish will be awfull
Strip it of first
The line walls.then top paper
Hi if the old wallpaper is in good condition and is flat yes you can my dad has done it thew times in my jobs
It's not advised, as it could causing bubbling of the previous paper, due to the new paste,
We would never prepare a wall or advise a customer to paper over old wallpaper as we are able to provide the customer with a much better quality look feel and finish completing the job better by preparing the wall for up to date New wallpaper hung correctly with the right materials and tools.
Hi. I wouldn't recommend it as it may not stick properly to the surface.
yes its possible if the existing wallpaper is firmly adhered to the wall and has a smooth texture other wise rough textured wallpaper will reflect and make the new wallpaper finish uneven and not good looking.
Not a good idea, for many reasons. The adhesive won't work as it is supposed to, if the under layer of wallpaper comes off for some reason, the new one will do too. With the adhesive you will soak the original wallpaper whick can cause wrinkles on a new layer on top. Best to remove.
No. It's possible but it's not indicate. You will ruin the wallpaper and it's gonna look worse.
Yes you can but its not going to be on for long time and the quality also going to be poor
If the existing wall paper is firm on the wall free of dust n bubbles ect YES you paper over it.
Through my vast years of experience my answer to this is definitely not.
Only paper you should be papering over is lining paper.
If it is a previous lining paper you should also ensure that it is solidly adhered to the wall with no bursts or broken edges on it.
Preferably in most cases I would start from scratch and crossline the wall in most cases as this makes for a far superior quality finish to the final article unless your manufacturers instructions tells you not to Crossline the walls.
No you can't it could leave markings or bubbles that could appear from previous wall paper.
Yes you can if it is a smooth surface, but if it is patter wallpaper I would recommend taking them off
I would recommend not to , I would strip back to the wall and if the walls are damaged or not very smooth I would fill and sand we’re needed then add the new wallpaper
