How To Hang Wallcovering Around An Inside Corner


 

Step 1. Cut and prepare a full strip. While the strip cures, measure from the edge of the preceding strip to the corner at several points; add 1/2" to the longest of these measurements. Make sure the edges of the booked strip are aligned perfectly, then mark this distance near the top and bottom of the booked strip. Hold a straightedge against the marks and cut the strip.

 

 

Step 2. Position the strip. Make corner slits at the top and bottom of the strip to wrap the overlap around the corner without wrinkles. Smooth the strip with a smoothing brush, then trim the excess at the ceiling and baseboard.

 

 

Step 3. Measure a distance equal to the remainder of the strip you cut in step 1, and mark a point equal to this measurement. At this mark, draw a plumb line from the ceiling to the floor on the next wall.

 

 

Step 4. Position the strip on the wall with the cut edge in the corner and the uncut edge against the plumb line drawn in step 3. Smooth and trim the strip. If the wallcovering is vinyl, peel back the edge and apply a bead of vinyl-on-vinyl adhesive to the lapped area. Press the seam flat and let it cure before rolling the seams.
