Removing wallpaper from one wall only

rosemintJuly 2, 2014

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but
has anyone tried removing wallpaper from one wall
while leaving it intact on all the other walls?
Is it possible?

Thanks.

Sure, it is possible. The only gotcha I can imagine---other than the normal removal hassles---would be loose edges in each corner.

Thanks, handymac. You mean I'd just need to glue the
edges down? Would using a razor blade make sense?

I don't think it's a big deal. Use a straight edge and a razor blade to strike straight lines into the corners; steam off the wallpaper you don't want; slip a little wallpaper paste behind any loose edges of the remaining wallpaper and smooth them down with a smoothing knife.
