Lincrusta Wallcoverings – installation instructions and background

Listed under Axus, Blog, Lincrusta Posted Dec 07 2013

Lincrusta is a household name but it still has an air of mystery about it.

Lincrusta – The Ultimate Wall covering

It is robust and durable once installed and a perfect backdrop for creative decorative effects. Also, despite being the poster child for “traditional” it has moved with the times and private residences and commercial projects all around the world are installing the contemporary patterns.

Then of course, where you have the more historical wall coverings in period properties, the Lincrusta restoration kit now offers clients the opportunity to restore or reinstate areas which have been damaged for whatever reason.

Readers from the USA have asked questions about technique and product selection and sourcing; Lincrusta is going all over the world as we speak. The universal appeal of this UK wall covering is very inspiring.

Helpful resources

There is a procedure to follow, and some essential kit is required as a minimum : a reliable cutting knife, sharp blades and a decent tape measure.

You can also watch the man himself  “Mr Lincrusta” (AKA – Andy Sarson) showing you on video how to hang this remarkable product.

There is also some good reading here (download PDF) for installation instructions.
