  • First you will have to take the wallpaper down. You can't tile over wallpaper. Sorry.

    If you want to put tiles up on the walls, you will need to remove the wallpaper. It may not hold up to the wet materials used to secure the tiles and will loosen the wallpaper and the tiles will fall off with the wallpaper.

    You can put cement board up over the wallpaper. Then tile to the cement board.
