Understanding Wallpaper Installation Costs

Here at Bluespec Decorating Limited we do not have fixed price for wallpaper installation. The cost of wallpaper installation can be as varied as the wallpapers themselves, influenced by factors such as the type of wallpaper, the size of the space, the complexity of the job, geographical location and parking availability.

Factors Affecting Cost

  1. Wall Preparation: Your walls need to be smooth and clean before installation. The walls need to have a coat of primer sealer applied (special primer sealer for wallpaper installation). If the walls require prep work, this will add to the total price of the project.
  2. Lining paper -Lining paper may be needed for your type of wallpaper. Delicate and paper backed wallcoverings require to be crosslined with lining paper and applied with a thin coat of paste on top of the lining paper.
  3. Untrimmed papers – Some papers come untrimmed and require a hand trimming on a wallpapering table;
  4. Type of Wallpaper: Vinyl, fabric, linen, leather, or designer wallpapers – the type of wallpaper you choose can dramatically affect the cost. For example, vinyl is often more economical, while high-end or designer wallpapers will add to the cost.
  5. Room Size and Layout: It’s simple – the larger the room, the more expensive the job due to more material and labour. Additionally, rooms with many windows, doors, or complex architectural features can increase costs because they require more time and precision to wallpaper effectively.
  6. Project Location: In London parking changes and congestion charge costs could be significant, so that also adds cost and is included in your quotation.
