How to prepare wallcovering strips


1. Hold the wallcovering against the wall so there is a full pattern at the ceiling line and the strip overlaps both the ceiling and the baseboard by at least 2” Cut the strip to length, using scissors.

 

2. Fill a water tray half full of lukewarm water. Roll the cut strip loosely with the pattern side in. Soak the roll in the tray as directed by the manufacturer, usually about one minute, to activate the prepasted adhesive.

 

3. Hold up a second strip and find the pattern match with the previously hung strip. Measure and cut the new strip with about 2” of excess at each end.

 

TIP

If wallpaper can be “booked” (check manufacturer’s directions), fold each end of the strip to the center, with the pasted side in. Do not crease the folds. Let the strip cure for about 10 minutes.
