Wallpaper over Textured Wallpaper With new Rough Brick Effect Paper?

Postby Stu1975 » Wed Apr 29, 2015 10:31 am

Hi.
I have a high stairwell, papered with textured wallpaper. I would like to use embossed brick effect wallpaper in this area. Given that the new paper has a rough brick look can I apply this directly onto the old paper?

Hi Stu1975

No, please don't attempt this, you'll have all sorts of problems. Strip off the old, prepare the walls, and hang the new. Do the job properly !

Thanks Poptech.You seem 100% on that. Shame, it's a light texture, and a really big area to strip. Best get to it I guess, it's not going to strip it's self. Thanks again.
