They were all the rage in the 80′s and 90′s but now wallpaper borders are an annoying eyesore and can also be difficult to remove. Here are four quick and easy steps to follow to get your home back into a newer decorating millennium.

Step 1 – Get out the hairdryer

First, heat the border with a hairdryer. Gently pull at the border to see if it will come off. If the border doesn’t budge move on to the next step.

Step 2 – Mist and scrape

Mist the border with warm water in a small spray gun. Next, scrape it gently but firmly with a plastic scraper. If it is still difficult to remove use more warm water and a sponge. Once the border is moist, it should feel soft to the touch and should be easier to scrape off.

Step 3 – Using a Steam Wallpaper Stripper

If the above steps still are stripping a stubborn border. Use a steam wallpapers stripper. Steam from the bottom of the border to the top. You may need to use the wallpaper scraper to remove any excess.

Step 4 – Clean Down the Surface

After the border has been removed, clean the surface and check that the wall is free from any trace of adhesive. Leave the wall bare overnight so that the surface can dry out before new paint or paper is applied.
