There’s two options for the direction which you hang the lining paper:
1. Horizontally – we suggest this if you are planning to hold wallpaper throughout the the top of paper that is lining. In this manner the seams will maybe not fall when you look at the exact same spot, avoiding noticeable bumps within the wallpaper. Hanging the liner paper horizontally is called cross-lining.
2. Vertically – best as it is easier smoothing lining paper down the wall if you are putting lining paper on to paint it.
Should you choose would you like to hang the paper that is lining and wallpaper on the top. Begin from the area what your location is likely to hang the very first amount of wallpaper and hang a half-width of lining paper. Maintain with full widths throughout the remaining portion of the wall surface. It is fine in the event that two papers will be the same width, but remember that liner papers can be found in various widths. We suggest planning making sure that two lots of seams usually do not fall into the same destination.
For the right outcomes, we recommend:
- Calculating your wall surface and doing some calculations. By doing these calculations it is possible to you shouldn’t be kept with an extremely slim strip of lining paper to hold at the foot of the wall.
- Marking a straight horizontal line on the wall surface, to help you hang the liner paper straight, overlapping and cutting down any extra. In the event that you hang lining paper flush from the roof you will be kept with gaps as walls are hardly ever completely right.
These calculations are optional but suggested in order to make your task easier and for a finish that is smooth. If you’d rather perhaps maybe not do these calculations, skip to your next area called ‘How to measure and cut lining paper’.
To work through your horizontal start point near the top of the wall, mark a line that is small reduced compared to width of the lining paper from the ceiling. For instance, if your liner paper includes a width of 540mm, mark the line more or less 480mm down onto the wall surface. (më tepër…)
