The most common way to decorate walls in rooms is wallpapering. At first glance, the technology of the process itself is quite simple - put glue on a strip of wallpaper and stick it to the wall. That is why the owners of apartments and houses are decided to independently conduct this type of finishing work.
If the section of the wall is smooth, prepared correctly and has no obvious defects in the form of bulges and depressions, the one who is far from such works can also glue the wallpaper. But how to glue the wallpaper in the corners and at the same time observe the coincidence of the pattern? In such cases, you should use a certain technique, without the use of which it will be difficult to achieve the desired result.
Ideally, in order not to cut the strip at bend points, the corners of the room should be strictly vertical and straight. Then the process of pasting wallpaper would be reduced to one continuous operation, which consists in processing the wall and canvas wallpaper, followed by gluing. But, unfortunately, there are practically no rooms with absolutely correct geometrical parameters, at least one angle will be crooked.
As a result, the first pasted over wall will still be vertical, and as we move from the wall to the wall, there will be a bias increasing from one canvas of wallpaper to another. The drawing will shift to the corners and will be uneven relative to the horizontal surfaces of the floor and ceiling.
Another point that must be taken into account when carrying out this type of work is what material the wallpaper is made of, individual characteristics leave an imprint on the whole process.
Wall-paper made from paper web without additional layers is the most capricious. In this case, the work should be carried out fairly quickly, the paper quickly absorbs the water contained in the glue. It is worth a little overdoing the treated strip, as it begins to creep into pieces.
Vinyl-coated wallpapers should be given a little time after coating, so that they are better soaked. But some types of wallpaper data have a very gentle pattern sputtering and you can only press them to the surface using rubber rollers. In the corners it is especially important to ensure the best adhesion of the web to the wall. The use of rags can be detrimental to the figure.
Non-woven wallpapers do not require glue treatment on their back side. It is enough to smear only the surface of the wall, and in the corners again, additionally walk the adhesive solution before working.
The denser the material, the smaller the overlap should be, and in the case of glass strips, the strips should be glued end to end - even the smallest overlap will be very noticeable in the corners.
The main task when pasting wallpaper is to prevent “wrinkles” in the corners, and at the same time the wallpaper strips do not diverge from the bottom. so that on the adjacent wall there was a grip of a maximum of 1.5 - 2 cm. Here it is necessary to take into account the extent to which the angle is curved, the greater the curvature, the larger the allowance should be.
The edge should be pressed as far as possible to the wall. If at the same time the strip starts to "wrinkle", then scissors will need to make small notches, cutting the sheet towards the "wrinkle".
The next step is to mark the way a new strip of wallpaper will be laid on the adjacent wall. For this, from the overlap of the first canvas launched on this wall, it is necessary to postpone a distance equal to the width of the glued wallpaper and reduced by 5 mm. After that, using a level in this place, you need to draw a vertical line. After the marking is completed, we paste the second sheet, and in order for it to lek we strictly vertically orientate ourselves along the line drawn.
To do this, outrun the point from which the sheet will go so that it bends around an angle of 30 mm wide. The edge of the wallpaper must be well pressed against the wall, and if wrinkles will appear on it, as well as in the case of internal corners make cuts, only here they should be small. Along the edge of the wallpaper, which is bent on the next wall, tear off a narrow strip of wallpaper so that only a small edge remains. This technique will help make the seam as thin as possible, and the overlap will not be so noticeable.
Next, with the help of the level, repel a distance from the corner equal to the width of the wallpaper and increased by 6 mm.
A new sheet should be glued along this border. At the same time, the edge of the new sheet should overlap the edge wound up on the wall from the adjacent sheet.
With an effort to press down the joints, align the top and bottom of the wallpaper with a trim, and only then walk the rubber roller along the edges.
