Hanging wallpaper without joins is simple but does require some technical skill and precision. To ensure a seamless end result, here is a step-by-step guide for a great look in your home.
- Measure the wall carefully, noting any obstacles such as door frames and windows. Calculate how many rolls of wallpaper you will need to cover the area, bearing in mind an allowance of 10 cm at the top and bottom of the wall.
- Prepare the wall by cleaning it thoroughly with sugar soap so that it is free from dust and grease. Allow it to dry before moving on to the next step.
- Cut each length of wallpaper slightly larger than your measurement (at least 4 inches). This will ensure you have enough for matching up joins exactly; if needed, position heavy books against walls or furniture to keep walls totally flat when papering them in one piece.
- Hang the longest length from the top left-hand corner first and check that all measurements are correct. When you reach the opposite side of the wall, trim off excess with a sharp knife before trimming up from bottom to top along edges if needed. If there is any paint on wallpaper, use white spirit to remove it carefully and stand paper away from heat sources when drying out paints or pastes used during the application process.
- Using a soft brush run along each side of the paper line (horizontal or vertical depending on direction taken when hanging). Carefully press out any air bubbles using fingers gently before carrying on with the next section until room is complete – allow sufficient time afterwards so adhesive fully sets before applying furniture back into place!
As in any home improvement project, getting the best out of your wallpaper requires patience and attention to detail throughout the process – from prepping the wall to trimming off the extra paper after your job is done. However, the end result makes it all worthwhile when your guests marvel at how great your walls look.
