  • All Newbie wallpaper is created in non-woven material that is a mix of cellulose and polyester. There are also wallpapers that are fabricated from paper, vinyl, textiles, among other materials.

  • Newbie wallpapers are designed with "EasyUp," making it simple for even beginners to put them up with ease. With EasyUp wallpaper, you apply the adhesive directly to the wall rather than the back of the wallpaper itself. This method reduces mess and makes it easier to handle the wallpaper strips. The paste-the-wall technique reduces the risk of adhesive getting on the face of the wallpaper or dripping onto the floor, simplifying the installation process and making it less messy."EasyUp" is a patented trademark from Boråstapeter that has certain characteristics: They are always mounted edge to edge, the wallpaper is always rolled in the same direction as you mount it, you always apply the adhesive on the wall, and it does not let through dark colors from the underlying surface."

  • Use adhesive for non-woven only.

    • Measure the Wall(s): Measure the height and width of the wall or walls you plan to wallpaper. Measure both the full height and width, even if the wallpaper has a pattern repeat, as you'll need to account for this.
    • Calculate the Total Wallpaper Area: To find the total area to be covered, multiply the height by the width. For example, if your wall is 2.5 meters (250 cm) in height and 4 meters (400 cm) in width, the total area is 10 square meters (250 cm x 400 cm).
    • Account for Pattern Repeat: If your wallpaper has a pattern with a repeat, you'll need to take this into consideration. For instance, if the pattern repeat is 30 centimeters, you must add this to the width before calculating the total area. In the example above, if the pattern repeat is 30 cm, you'd have to measure as if the width is 430 cm (400 cm + 30 cm) and recalculate the total area.
    • Consider the Number of Strips per Roll: Check the label on the wallpaper rolls to see how many strips (also called drops or lengths) each roll can cover.
    • Divide the Total Area by the Coverage of Each Roll: If one roll covers 3 strips, and your total area is 10 square meters, you'll need at least 4 rolls (10 square meters ÷ 3 strips per roll = 3.33 rolls, round up to 4 rolls).
    • Add Extra for Allowance: It's a good idea to purchase an extra roll or two for contingency. An additional roll is typically recommended.

    You can also use the wallpaper calculator on Boråstapeters site to calculate how many rolls you need.

  • No, none of our wallpapers require painting before. All our wallpaper covers the underlying surface regardless of colour.

  • Yes, all of our wallpapers have enough opacity to cover a dark patterned wallpaper without showing through.

  • The basic rule is that the substrate should always be dry, even, and well anchored.

    • Folding rule
    • Spirit level
    • Roll
    • Brush
    • Wallpaper scrape
    • Scissors
    • Wallpaper knife
    • Sponge
    • Bowl with water

  • Read our guide on how to wallpaper here.

  • Non-woven is a wallpaper of paper with polyester fiber elements that makes it wet and not swell. You can then apply the adhesive directly to the wall and put the wallpaper directly edge-to-edge.

  • To return unwanted items purchased at, you need to go through these simple steps:

    • Ensure that the items have their original labels intact, are unused, and in their original condition.
    • All goods returned must be packed in a bag or carton. If possible, use the original packaging.
    • Sending items is free of charge when using our prepaid return label.
