We strongly recommend that everyone use lining paper before hanging wallpaper to get a smooth, professional looking finish. There are range of grades or thicknesses available from different brands. Today, we’re going to look at 800 Grade lining Paper what it does, how to hang it and how to choose what brand to buy.
What 800 Grade Lining Paper Does
Lining Paper 800 Grade is one of the thinnest kinds of lining paper on the market. It’s intended to prepare your walls before you hang wallpaper, so the finish will be smooth. You can use it to cover over minor imperfections in the wall such as hairline cracks, pits or bubbles. It can be used on smooth walls as well, to make it easier to hang wallpaper.
Quality v Price
There are many different versions of 800 lining paper on the market, and they vary greatly in terms of quality. Although all 800 grade lining papers should be the same thickness, they will not be the same quality. We would recommend going for the highest priced (and quality) liner you can afford in your budget. Going for cheaper liners might end up costing you in the long run as cheaper lining paper is more likely to tear or crease while hanging.
What You Need To Hang 800 Wallpaper
When you buy lining paper, you should also purchase adhesive, a sharp knife or wallpaper scissors and a wallpaper brush. The type of adhesive you need will be stated on the label of the lining paper so always check. It should also say whether it’s best to paste the wall or the lining paper. The knife or scissors are for trimming the paper to size and the brush for getting rid of air bubbles from the paper.
