How To Prepare Your Surface
Your new walling is designed to stick to a wide variety of surfaces. The surface you’re applying to must be flat, dry, and structurally sound. If the surface has been recently painted, you must wait 24-48 hours to ensure that it’s fully cured if you plan to use the self stick backing. For self stick products we recommend first wiping down down your wall with Trisodium Phosphate to ensure maximum adhesion. Please follow direction on label. You must allow the walling to acclimate for 48 hours prior to installation and it should not be installed at a temperature less than 60 degrees. For best results, humidity levels of 35-55% must be maintained after installation. If these rules are not followed, you will likely not get a secure bond between your new walling and the surface you are installing over.
- Remove any electrical plates and light switch covers.
- Scrape off any debris or loose pieces of wallpaper/drywall/etc.
- Remove any nails, staples, or anything else that may cause the walling not to stick to the wall.
- Wipe your surface clean to ensure a solid bond.
- Before you begin installing, be sure to lay out planks from several boxes to make sure that you have a good variety of different shade planks and lengths to achieve a random look.
Glue and Nail Installation
Note - Can be used with self adhesive walling or with any of our tongue & groove flooring products.
Using a level and a pencil, mark a straight line across the wall to start your first row off of.
For the first row, face nail each plank in several spots ensuring that you keep it even with the line that you just marked. We recommend nailing no closer than 6" from the ends of each plank. Continue installing the planks across the wall until you reach the other side and cut the last plank to fit against the wall. Test fit the last plank before nailing to ensure proper fit.
Begin installing the next row using the cut piece left from the previous row while ensuring the end gaps from one row to another are staggered by at least 6” to create a random, natural look. Nail down the length of the tongue side of each plank at a 45 degree angle every 8-12”. Repeat that process until you reach the ceiling. On the last row, cut the planks lengthwise to fit while leaving a 3/8” expansion gap against the ceiling. This is critical, as wood is a natural product that expands and contracts.
Repeat below the first row you installed until you reach the floor.
Once you’ve finished installing the entire wall, once again go over it and face nail any spots that aren’t securely stuck to the wall and fill the nail holes with a matching wood putty.
If any gaps are left around the perimeter, quarter round can be used to create a clean finished look.

WHAT IF I WANT TO REMOVE IT?

IS IT EASY TO CUT?
LuxeWall is super easy to cut. You can use a miter saw, chop saw or hand saw, just be sure to use a fine tooth blade with whichever saw you use.
COMMERCIAL/RETAIL SPACE, WILL IT WORK?
DO YOU HAVE ISSUES WITH THE ADHESIVE NOT STICKING?
If LuxeWall is applied according to the recommended directions for application, then you shouldn't experience any issues with it not sticking to your surface. However, if you are having issues, then it is likely one of a few things that could be causing it:
- The area was not totally clean before hand.
- The area was still damp before LuxeWall was applied
- Your improperly using a J-Roller
- Your not applying sufficient pressure
Note: In the off chance that you see any curling or have issues of it not sticking, you can simply apply a couple of finish nails.(we actually recommend this)
HOW THICK IS THE PRODUCT?
Our reclaimed wood planks are 3/16" thick and our sustainable hardwood planks are 1/8" thick. Our 3D walling ranges from 1/2" to 3/4" think.
IS THIS WOOD OR WALLPAPER?
LuxeWall is crafted from 100% sustainable real wood planks that can be used to decorate your walls.
CAN I RECYCLE LUXEWALL?
Yes! In fact, you can put the LuxeWall box, all of your trimmings, and even your tape peelings into your recycling bin.
DOES LUXEWALL SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO SHIP?
Our walling ships free to the continental US! For samples, we use FedEx Ground and their rates.
HOW MANY SQUARE FEET DO I NEED FOR MY PROJECT?
By multiplying the length times the width of a wall (in feet, not inches), you can find the square footage of the area that you will need. You can also use the LuxeWall online calculator if you're using inches.
Note: We recommend a 10% waste factor in your calculations when ordering. Also, if you have additional areas requiring extra cuts (like windows) than we consider upping the amount to 15%.
ANY PROMOTIONS OR COUPONS?
LuxeWall runs promotions, coupons, and contests throughout the year with most of our sales being shared to our mailing list.
WHERE CAN I GET LUXEWALL?
LuxeWall can be purchased directly from our website by visiting our products page.
WHAT CAN I LUXEWALL?
LuxeWall will stick to any interior surface. However, installing directly onto a hard surface such as tile is not recommended. Also, the surface needs to be clean and smooth. If you're sticking LuxeWall to a wall that is not painted, you'll need to apply a coat of primer and let it dry completely.
DO I NEED TO SEAL IT IF I USE IT AS A BACKSPLASH? AND WHAT KIND OF SEALANT CAN I USE?
It's not absolutely necessary to seal LuxeWall when it's used as a backsplash. However, it can help if you are worried about excess splashing or humidity.
WILL IT WORK IN MY BATHROOM OR NEAR MOISTURE?
It can work in a bathroom setting as long as you take the proper preparation steps before installing it. First, it's important to be sure that your wall doesn't exceed 9% moisture content before installing. If possible, let your walls dry out for a couple days before installing and again after installing. It's important that you allow the material to acclimate unwrapped and outside of the box for 48 hours in whatever environment you are installing it in. Be sure to also use a J-Roller during installation to ensure proper adhesion for each plank.
CAN I APPLY IT TO A FIRE PLACE OR NEAR HEAT?
In most cases, LuxeWall can safely be used around a code-approved fireplace as long as the surface you're applying the LuxeWall to is not exposed to combustible materials. Each situation is unique, so it is important that you consult your fireplace's installation and safety manual before applying, to assure the area you are using LuxeWall is considered a safe surface. We have had many customers use LuxeWall to transform their fireplace with great success!
CAN IT BE APPLIED TO A TEXTURED SURFACE?
Some textured surfaces will adhere to the LuxeWall products with ease, while others (that are less smooth) may have issues achieving maximum bonding. We recommend sanding the texture down if it is too textured. Once it is sanded, clean the area of dust/debris, then apply the LuxeWall to the smooth surface. It is also highly recommend to use finishing nails to ensure it stays affixed to the wall for years to come.
CAN I PUT IT OUTSIDE? WHAT IF I DO NOT USE THE ADHESIVE?
CAN YOU PUT THIS PRODUCT ON A DOOR?
Yes, LuxeWall can go on a door or cabinet with ease. Make sure to use a J-Roller to ensure maximum bonding between the surface and the adhesive.
CAN I APPLY THIS TO A CEILING?
Yes, LuxeWall can be used on ceilings, and it often is! It is strongly recommended to use finishing nails.
