How much does wallpaper installation cost?

Mar 23, 2018

Hanging wallpaper is a great way to update the look of any room, but it can be a tough job to handle on your own. So you may want to hire someone to do it for you.

However, it is important to keep in mind that other factors can influence cost. So it is always best to speak to your professional directly for a custom cost estimate.


Before you start your project, take the scope of the area you would like to wallpaper. Then when you know what you need, you'll be able to describe the project in detail so that you can find the right professional.

Current Condition of Walls

First, you should take a look at the room you're hanging wallpaper in. Walls that are clean and smooth are set for wallpaper hanging.

However, not every wall will be in top condition and ready to go. Your walls may need a bit of repair and attention first before you start. Make note of any damage or scratches that will need to get fixed up beforehand. Any holes from hanging artwork and pictures should be filled in as well. Then, walls with major damage will need repair before any wallpaper gets hung.

Number of Rooms

Wallpapering several rooms can make an attractive statement in your home renovation. You might plan to put the same pattern up throughout your home or in several rooms or, you may also have plans to cover your walls in several different patterns.

When you search for professionals, give them an idea of how many rooms need to be covered. This way, you'll get the most accurate quotes to consider.

A professional wallpaper hanger is the best option for covering your walls. Whether it's one room or many, they have the tools and expertise to get the job done right.

Type of Wallpaper

Your choice of wallpaper can affect the hanging process. The most common wallpaper is vinyl-based. This makes it easy to clean and is relatively simple to hang.

Other options for wallpaper include foil, flock, and fabric materials. These can give your room a luxurious and elegant look. They can be trickier to hang, so be sure that your chosen pro has experience with these materials before you start.


Make sure that the workspace is clear and ready to go, without any obstructions. This will save your professional precious setup time. They can get started hanging wallpaper right away!
Walls should be clear of any art and curtains removed from any windows in the room. Furniture should also be moved out of the way.

You can keep costs down by doing this kind of work yourself. If you need help with the heavy lifting, let your professional know. They'll be happy to give you a hand! Simply keep in mind that if you do need assistance moving furniture that this will add to the timeline for your wallpaper installation project.


The time it takes to hang wallpaper will depend on the project itself. Larger rooms will take more materials and more time to complete. Planning to put up wallpaper in several rooms? You'll need to give your pro extra time to handle the additional work.

The wallpaper itself can also influence the project's length. A complicated pattern will need an exact match to get the look just right. Your pro will need to take time to make sure everything looks great.

If you need an exact timeframe, contact your pro. They can work out an estimated time based on the size of your project.


Wallpapering can be a difficult job and is best left up to the pros. When you look for a wallpaper hanger, you'll want to find someone qualified. Check that they have experience with the type of wallpaper you plan to hang.

When finding wallpaper hangers through Bidvine you can easily review their qualifications. Simply pop over to their profile to see pictures of before and after projects, read reviews and learn more about their business.


The location of your home can also influence the cost of the project. Try and find a wallpaper hanger that works out of your area.

These pros should charge rates that are in line with your area's cost of living. If you choose a pro outside of your area, remember that costs may vary.

Finding a wallpaper hanger near you is the best way to tackle a project. This is especially true if you plan to do more wallpapering jobs in the future. You'll have someone you can count on!

The price was much better than other prices I received. However the work was completed to a very high standard and on time without any issue. Soliamun even did some extra work for me without increasing the price. I would recommend him and he is now doing some bathroom work for me because I was very happy with his price and work

Adrian was professional, tidy, and did a fantastic job of plastering our hallway wall. He showed up at the agreed upon time, and charged what was initially quoted. Additionally, he was kind enough to answer a number of questions we had about our flat and its general upkeep; he's a genuinely friendly person and was a pleasure to have around. We recommend him without reservation.

Antonio came to my apartment to assemble a brand new sideboard. I was very impressed with his punctuality, his good manners and very impressed with his work. He did an excellent job and even helped me move the sideboard into position and move a table to another space. Very helpful and a delight to have working in my home. It’s always difficult having a stranger in your home! I am buying further items for my home and will DEFINITELY call on this young professional man. # IMPRESSED!!
