Q & A

How much wallpaper should I order?

We make the wallpaper into panels instead of by the roll. We recommend that you measure the height and width of your wall to check how much wallpaper is needed, before placing an order. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are unsure, we are happy to help. It is best to add an extra 2 centimetres to each measurement as some walls aren’t 100% straight. Then you can easily trim the wallpaper with a craft knife.

Please contact us if you would like to have a custom order made. Each wallpaper panel can be made to fit the height of your wall. Please send us the height and width measurements of your wall for a free quote! Visit our ‘About’ page for more information.

Can I have larger wallpaper panels made?

As the wallpaper is made to order we can easily customise the size of each wallpaper panel to fit your wall’s height. Visit our ‘About’ page for more information.

  1. Hi
    I have gyprock walls upstairs. Can it be removed without ripping the gyprock? and it gets quite warm upstairs will it stay in place in warmer temperatures?

    1. Hi, yes, it is best to prime that walls first if you want it to be removable. The coat needs 3 weeks to dry before applying the wallpaper. yes, our wallpaper sticks under warmer temperatures.

  2. Hi…can I please have the splash back info too…many thanks

    1. Hi, I have sent you an email with the information you need to know.

  3. Will the wallpaper with waterproofing be suitable for bathroom walls? We have been advised by our tradie not to use wallpaper on bathroom walls as the moisture will cause it to peel off eventually and will generally not last long. I wonder if your product will work. Is there any warranty on your products? thank you.

    1. Hi,
      With the waterproofing coat, our wallpaper will not get wet from the outside. The only way it would start to peel is if a lot of monsters got underneath the wallpaper. We at current do not have a warranty. The first ever customer to have this product up has now had it for 13 years without any problems, however, this was not in a bathroom. We would recommend getting a sample to try out first. If you leave this on for 48 hours condition it to the environment it will be in and it still is stuck well then the wallpaper will work fine.

  4. I also want to know about using as a splash back, can I please have some information too? Thanks Michelle

    1. Hi,
      yes, of course. I have sent you an email with all the information you need to know.

  5. I am thinking about using this on our caravan walls. The walls are plywood which I am currently painting with a Primer/sealer. There are some rough bits though. Will the wallpaper stick to this and if so will the rough bits show through?
    I have ordered dome samples to try.

  6. Hi. Can you send me some info on options to use your product for a
    Kitchen splash back please

    1. Hi Lisa,
      We have sent you an email with all the information you need to know about using this product as a splash back.

      1. May I please have the info about using it as a splashback too?

        1. Thank you for your questions. I have sent the email through to you now.

  7. can you apply magic wallpaper over the top of existing wallpaper ? what is the blackout paper? is the “normal magic wallpaper thin so it might show existing patterns or colour through it ?

    1. Hi,
      Yes, you can. We recommend using our block out wallpaper when applying over top of other wallpaper. Using our block out will make sure the texture of the wallpaper underneath does not show through and allows the white on our pattern to be pure white. Our standard wallpaper is best for covering wallโ€™s painted with white standard paint. It is slightly translucent so darker paint colours may show through. If your wall is painted with a darker paint color then we have a slightly thicker version of the wallpaper available called block out. Block out provides opaque coverage.

  8. Hi there

    How can the wall paper be clean? i have a few marks and unfortunately my husband used cleaning product which took off the design.

    1. If it is our standard wallpaper it can be very lightly wiped with damp cloth only. If the wallpaper has our waterproofing coat on it, then it can be cleaned/wiped.

  9. Hi There,
    I am looking to cover my splashback in my kitchen. Would this product adhere and be suitable?
    Thanks in advance โ˜บ

    1. Hello,
      Thanks for your message. I have just sent you an email with some info ๐Ÿ™‚
      Kind regards, Alexandra

  10. Hi there,

    We are looking at a rental property that has Lockwood, which makes the house very dark. Could this wall paper be applied to the wood paneling without having to prime and paint?


    1. Hello, Thanks for your message. The wallpaper can be applied to wood if it has been sealed or painted. Unsealed wood may be damaged when the wallpaper is removed. The woods texture may show through the wallpaper still. I recommend that you try out a sample first. Our block out wallpaper would be more suitable, as the standard wallpaper is designed to cover white backgrounds. Kind regards, Alexandra.

  11. I would like to cover a pair of blinds. they are made from a quite stiff canvas like fabric and are on a roller. However I leave them “down” at all times for privacy. Do you think the wall paper would adhere to the fabric?

    1. Hello, Thanks for your message. Unfortunately the wallpaper won’t adhere correctly to canvas. Kind regards,

  12. Hi, I need to apply on wall 300cmx250cm, so how many shits do I need? Is it ok to apply on furniture? How long do you ship to Poland?
    Thanks a lot .

    1. Hello Monika, Yes we do ship to Poland. The wallpaper can be applied to furniture that is smooth and non-porous. I have sent you an email with some more information. Kind regards, Alexandra

  13. If we move to another house, how can we take the wallpaper with us? I’m assuming we would throw away the backing of the sticker when installing.

    1. Hello Bonnie, If you keep the backing paper than the wallpaper can be reapplied to it for storage. We have had customers successfully remove and reinstall the wallpaper when moving house. Kind regards, Alexandra

  14. Hi,

    Would you ship to India?


    1. Hello, Yes we ship worldwide ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Hi. Can the Magic Wallpaper be applied to a wall that has never been painted? (gib and plaster)

    1. Hello, we recommend that the wall is properly primed and painted before applying the wallpaper. It is best to let the paint dry for at least 4 weeks before applying the wallpaper. You are welcome to order a sample and try it on your wall first ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. If the wall is freshly painted do you need to wait a few weeks before applying the wallpaper?

    1. Hello Melanie, Yes we recommend that you let the paint dry for a minimum of 4 weeks before applying BC Magic Wallpaper ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Hi. I am thinking of covering my fridge with the BC Magic Wallpaper. Would you recommend it?. Can it be done on slightly curved fridge?.

    1. Hello Richard,
      Yes it can be used on the fridge, with a waterproof coating that we can apply at an additional cost.
      Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚
