You can use wallpaper on walls with this surface, but you should know that it is better to use wallpaper for gotelé with adhesive so that the result is a little more satisfactory. Wallpaper is a great way to add colour and style to different rooms in your home. Remember that wallpaper is available in a wide range of colours and designs at Maison de Papier.

Can wallpaper be applied over gotelé?

Gotelé walls are created by applying small dots of paint or other material in a pattern that creates an irregular surface. These walls are often found in bathrooms and kitchens, but can also be found in other rooms in the house. Putting wallpaper over gotelé will not work very well on these walls, so many people remove the gotelé. However, you should know that there is one type of wallpaper, adhesive wallpaper that works relatively well on stippled surfaces. It is a great way to add colour and beautiful patterns to your home without spending a lot of time and money. However, many prefer to smooth the wall by removing the gotelé and then adding the wallpaper.

How to wallpaper gotelé: options

There are two ways to wallpaper the gotelé without having problems with the finish so you’ll be happy: removing it or covering it with a layer of adhesive wallpaper for gotelé.

Removing the gotelé

Start by wetting all the walls with water. You can use a spray bottle or simply dip a sponge in water and scrub the walls. This will help loosen the paint on the wall and make it easier to scrape off later. Once you have wet the walls, wait about 10 minutes for them to dry slightly before scraping off the excess paint (gotelé). Try to use as much water as possible, so that the gotelé layers give way, the paint may be difficult to remove. Take your scraper and start scraping off as much gotelé as possible and throw it away. You may need to use a little soap to get rid of all the nasty paint residue.

Covering up the gotelé

Cover the gotelé with gotelé wallpaper. The easiest way to do this is to apply the adhesive directly to the wall and then apply the paper. Be sure to follow the instructions on the wallpaper. Generally, you should wet the back of the wallpaper and then press it firmly onto the wall. Once all the wallpaper on gotelé is in place, make sure there are no bubbles left inside, as this will give an unsightly effect and damage your wall decoration. Try to place the wallpaper in small folds that you can handle, so that you don’t have any problems.

Which wallpaper to use on a gotelé wall?

The best way to decorate stippled walls is to use gotelé wallpaper with adhesive. This type of wallpaper sticks directly to the wall and then peels off when you want to change it again (or if you need to remove it). It is also easy to apply and is available in many different colours and designs, so you can choose something that perfectly matches your room to decorate.

What should the wall look like?

When hanging wallpaper, the wall should be smooth, which is the best place to hang the wallpaper. It is also important that it has no bumps or holes. If your walls are not smooth, you can putty them with a special compound. You should also fill the holes in the wall with putty and sand the surface until it is smooth.

If you want to hang wallpaper on an old wall, it is best to fix the holes or cracks first. To do this, fill them with putty and sand them until they are flush with the rest of the wall. This will make it easier for you later on when you hang the new wallpaper.
