Hi

We are having a bathroom done and we have moved out whilst it's being done. I went after work to have a nosey and the plumber has leant the shower tray against a wall but used something hard thinking he was protecting the wallpaper instead of something like polystyrene to distribute the weight.

Consequently we now have a flattened line in the pattern on our 4 year old wallpaper.

Is there a way to raise the textured pattern again to remove the line or can a single sheet of the paper be removed and replaced ( we still have some paper)

Thanks

cruz99, good evening.

Best move would be to replace the damaged area with your stash of paper.

Is the wall paper emulsioned ? or not? the emulsion will need to be replaced, if un-painted the difference in colour of new to existing will be pronounced.

It is possible to remove a vertical strip, and really careful attention to re-papering could effect a decent repair.

Just ensure you have a plentiful supply of the paper.

Get a piece of new paper larger than the damaged area.

Paste this over the damaged section.

Get a straight edge like a ruler, and a sharp craft knife.

With the knife against the straight edge, cut out the damaged area - cutting through the original paper, and the new piece at the same time.

Remove the new piece of paper and put to one side.

Discard the the remnants from the new paper.

Discard the damaged piece.

Paste the new paper, and apply to hole iin old paper.

You should have a perfect fitting piece of paper.

Remove excess paste.

Allow to dry fully.

Emulsion.

Charge plumber.
