If you have answered NO to any of the above checks or if you have any doubts, do not proceed with the job 

You should contact your supplier immediately. It becomes your responsibility if you fail to carry out these checks and no claims will be considered for cutting or hanging more than 3 lengths


Can I return non faulty wallpaper?

Due to the bespoke nature of some of our products we are unable to issue refunds on items that have been cut for you, all made to measure products and part orders of wallpaper.  This is why we always recommend ordering samples of fabrics and wallpapers before placing an order.   We also always recommend that you order a sample first to avoid any confusion regarding colour, scale of pattern, finish etc.

Some wallart is printed to order and if a design is printed at different times there is no guarantee of colours matching exactly unless they were all printed on the same run.

All other items may be returned within 14 days of delivery.   Items must be returned undamaged and in their original packaging.   WALLPAPER ORDERS MAY ONLY BE RETURNED AS COMPLETE ORDERS.

Any Returns honoured will be subject to a 20% restock and handling fee.

Any Wallpaper or Fabric bought from our Sale section can not be returned.

Please inspect your items when you receive them.   For fabrics and wallpapers, please check you are happy prior to cutting or hanging. If your order arrives damaged or faulty please let us know within 48 hours of delivery.
If the product is defective in any way or has a fault, a replacement or refund will be made as long as the product is in the same condition as dispatched and it is within seven days with the sales ticket and in the original packaging.   Please note that you should check all wallpaper products for faults before and during hanging.   If the product is defective in any way or has a fault, a full replacement or refund will be made at no charge. 


The wallpaper I am looking for is not listed on your site. Can you help?

In most cases the answer is Yes. Please contact us with as much information as possible, for example Brand Name, Book Name, Pattern Number etc. The more information you can provide us with the quicker we will be able to respond to your request.

Can you supply fabrics to match my wallpaper?

We supply fabrics by all major brands currently found on our website so please telephone or email us to discuss your needs.

Is the wallpaper shown online an exact match of the physical product itself?

Ordering a sample of wallpaper is always recommended as the color shown on your computer screen may slightly vary from the physical product itself. When scanning our wallpaper we always try to ensure that the colour matches as closely as possible, however every computer monitor has different settings for brightness, contrast etc and as a result may appear to be a lighter or darker shade than it actually is. The cost of a sample is refunded if you later decide you would like to purchase the wallpaper.

Do Select Wallpaper participate in web site link exchange programs?

We only provide links to companies with whom we are associated with or trade with on a regular basis. Link exchange requests for websites and/or companies that we are not associated with will be ignored.

How may I contact Select Wallpaper?

Please visit our contact page where you will find our telephone, business address, email addresses, and an easy to use contact form.

What size are the samples?

We try to provide samples A4 or larger, if we provide a sample smaller than A4 we can refund your sample cost.
