Before you begin…
Remove a small section of the wallpaper in an inconspicuous corner first, using a scraper (if you’re lucky, there won’t be too many layers). This will give you a better idea of how much time removing wallpaper is going to take and if necessary, you can change your plans.
Is it strippable?
Many wallpapers are “strippable,” which makes removing wallpaper a much easier project. Pry up a seam edge using a utility knife and tug gently, pulling down at an angle, keeping both hands close to the lifting edge. If it comes off easily, peels in a long sheet and leaves no adhesive residue, then your job will be a simple one-step operation—unlike these home improvement projects you should never do by yourself.
