 ==== ====For great tips, tricks and reviews for wallpapering and equipment check this out.www.wallpaperingtipstricks.newsintechnologys.com ==== ====How to wallpaper a room preparation include painting the moldings, doors, windows, ceilings andothers. Remove and scrape existing wallpaper. Some papers will take some elbow grease toremove. One may need a steamer ready or handy. Wash painted walls. Put up a wallpaper liner orprimer first or at the beginning or start or when or where the existing wall is darker than theincoming wallpaper. The walls shall be sized accordingly. Height of wall shall be measured frombaseboard to ceiling in several different areas to get the average maximum height. Add about or 4inches to the maximum height measurement. Hold wallpaper up to the wall, align pattern as needed or wanted, add 4 inches and cut. Line upthe second strip with the first strip patterns, mark each at bottom and top and cut. To align the wallpaper parallel or vertical to the wall, mark a plumb line on the wall. Plumb line ordevice or tool or instrument can be improvised by a piece of string (the minimum length shall bethe height of the ceiling) Immerse the string with colored chalk and attach weight to one end.Fasten or hang the string from the top of the wall at the ceiling or from the crown molding while theweight hang down towards the floor. Fasten both end and snap the string against the wall to marka straight line from floor to ceiling. Pre-pasted wallpaper shall be soaked in a tray of lukewarm water according to manufacturer'sliterature. Get the paper out of the water onto the worktable and fold the strip with the pasted sideinside making a smaller fold at the top and a larger fold at the bottom. Sit the strip for thesuggested amount of time in the manufacturer's literature for the water to soak in and the paper tobe pliable. Lay the un-pasted wallpaper strip face down on the worktable. Evenly spread adhesiveonto the paper with a pasting brush from the center to the edges. Repeat the above instructionsfor the folding and booking. Start the hanging of the wallpaper at the remote or conceal place or space in the room behind adoor or where the shelf will be located or placed or at the edge or joint at door frame and wall.Align the top section of the wallpaper strip with the plumb line allowing 2 inches overlap at theceiling. Smooth-en the strip with a brush from the center, to the edges deflecting any air pockets.Unfold the bottom section maintaining or checking the alignment with the plumb line, and repeatthe above. Sponge off the un-pasted with clean water as needed or later. Cut the excess paper attop and bottom with blunt work knife. Repeat the same for the second strip making sure the two strips barely or rarely touch withoutoverlapping. Smooth-en the seams with a seam roller. Continue or repeat the "How To WallpaperA Room" process for the rest of the strips.
