Why spend extra money every time you want to change the wallpaper when you can do it yourself? Here are a few tips for installing wallpaper in your home.

Make Sure You have Enough Wallpaper

Before starting up, make sure to measure down all the walls on which you have planned to hang or install the wallpaper. A wallpaper calculator can assist you in determining how much wallpaper you’ll need for your task.

Measure the height and length of the walls you wish to wallpaper, as well as the height and length of the doors and windows, and the calculator will perform the math for you. Make sure there’s enough room in your budget for waste. Always try to buy some extra wallpaper just in case.

Choose the Right Wallpaper

You should be well aware of the wallpapers you want to install by looking at the combinations that will look good in that particular room. For example, you can choose any pastel colors or self-print wallpapers that will blend well with the theme in the living room. Choose animated or cool wallpapers that best reflect their personalities for a boy’s bedroom.

The same is the case with the girl’s bedroom. You can always go with floral wallpapers or wallpaper butterflies that easily stick on the plain walls or paste them on the room’s accent wall.

Lay out the wall

Use a whole roll of paper as a guide to set out the space. Place a roll in the corner where you want to begin, then make a pencil mark on the wall at the roll’s edge. Make a pencil line at the outer end of the roll and slide the roll down to that point. Continue repeating this until you have a good idea of where each seam will end up.

Center wallpaper with a robust feature on the “focal wall,” or the wall that people will notice first. Mark the walls halfway by measuring their width and height. Using wallpaper, cut a small piece. Place the focal point of the design over the midway. Mark the wall where the paper’s leading edge meets the wall.

Keep it clean

Once the right-hand edge is in place and vertically accurate, move on to the next step. With the paper-hanging brush, smooth the paper down. Make your way from the center to the edges of the paper, making sure there are no bubbles along the way. And it unfolded slowly from top to bottom.

Make sure the right edge of the paper is parallel to the pencil line. Crease the top and bottom of the paper against the ceiling and baseboard board connections while the length is in place. Pull the paper away from the wall gently and use scissors to cut along the folds. Return the trimmed edges to their original position with a brush.

Make Relief Cuts before Trimming

Use scissors instead of a knife to prevent mistakenly cutting into wood trim and other obstructions. You’ll need to make a relief cut before trimming the paper if you’re up against trim or other barriers. You might use a knife to cut, but scissors are preferable to prevent scratching the trim.
