Review: Photowall Wallpaper

When Eliza asked to have her bedroom decorated for her birthday I knew that a feature wall would really make the room.

We were invited to review Photowall, who use digital printing technology to create almost anything to go on the wall. Their website is full to the brim of exciting designs that all ages will love or you can even use a personal photo or image to create your very own wall covering.

I was keen to let Eliza design her own bedroom and we started off with a purple theme. You can search the website for colours, themes or specific pictures and highlight favourites to make decision making easier.

Eliza’s first choice was a feather design, but when entering in the wall measurements, it cropped off the tips of the feathers so she opted for her second choice. She loves Japanese culture and anime, so we she searched for a Sakura flower, it came up with some gorgeous designs including her final choice of a greenery drape.

Each wallpaper is printed via your wall measurements so it will fit your chosen wall perfectly and I was surprised how quickly our order arrived, taking just 3 working days.

The wallpaper comes in one roll, with easy to read instructions for each sheet, which are helpfully numbered so you know which order they go up in. Make sure you order the wallpaper kit too, as it comes with everything you need to hang your wallpaper, including a spirit level, pencil, seam roller, wallpaper brush, a knife and cutting guide.

I highly recommend watching the Photowall youtube video before you start as it gives you the confidence to get started.

Wallpaper isn’t my forte, so I roped in my MIL to help and she was immediately impressed with the quality of the wallpaper and the ease of application.


Each panel was easy to hang and line up and you leave the number panels on the paper until you have finished the wall and then trim them off at the end.

We did have one issue – we live in a 60+ year old house and as such our walls / ceilings are wonky. In hindsight, I should have put up some coving, or something with a straight edge to give us something to even the wall/ceiling join as on the last panel, there is a gap of a couple of cm. Luckily we have managed to find a solution by adding a small wooden rail in the same colour as Eliza painted her walls.


Eliza loves her new walls and grown up bedroom and now the boys want theirs done too, but with a graffiti style print.
