Can I hang my own wallcoverings, or should I hire a professional paperhanger?

It depends. Most residential wallcoverings are now hung by consumers such as you. By following manufacturers’ instructions, the advice of the independent retailer where you purchase your wallcoverings and the step-by-step directions in booklets such as PDRA’s How to Hang Wallcovering, you can hang your own wallcoverings and do a professional-looking job. Wallcoverings are not difficult to hang! However, there are certain types ofwallcoverings and architectural situations (elaborate stairwells,for example) where a professional definitely should be hired.Your local independent retailer can advise you as to when and if you should hire a professional and can usually give you a list of local paperhangers.
