Lining Paper Installation

Specialists in Essex Lining Paper Installation and Hanging. Our local painters and decorators hang and install lining paper to serve as a great base for painting or top layer wallpaper.

Why Lining Paper?

Painting over plastered walls with dents, cracks or blemishes leaves those marks visible. Lining paper hides those marks, creating a paintable area without the need for extra work.

Lining Paper is standard, no frills wallpaper without any decoration. It’s versatile, functional and cheaper than other wallpapers.

Professional decorators use it for creating a nice smooth finish and hiding imperfections. It reduces shrinkage and staining while also increasing durability and insulation.

Lining Paper comes in various grades, giving us a wide range of choices depending on the state of the wall.


Preparing For Installation

Preparing a lining paper installation in order to have the best finish possible is vital. Using local experienced Essex decorators is key to a perfect job done right.

We prepare the surface by removing all loose plaster and filling any holes or cracks. The walls are then sanded, taking away loose paint or debris, making the filler level.

The wall is ‘sized’ by applying a diluted wallpaper paste. This stops filler and plaster from soaking up water from the pasted lining paper. preserving its adhesive properties is an important step.


Hanging A Lining Paper Installation

Millington Decor uses the latest tools and techniques to hang lining paper. As a result, our years of experience and knowledge gives us the edge over the competition.

If the goal is to paint the lining paper, we hang vertically for a better painting surface. Hanging the lining paper horizontally works well for using as a base for other wallpaper to hang on top.

Each join made from sheet to sheet ensures there are no gaps or overlaps, creating a smooth, finished look.
