The best wallpapering wall is solid, flat, clean, dry and absorbent. Remove the old wallpaper for best results. Smooth out any cavities and unevenness, roughen painted surfaces, pre-glue or prime porous surfaces (eg with Tikkurila Varma primer).

If the background to be wallpapered differs significantly from the color tone of the wallpaper, it is a good idea to prime the wall to the same color or, alternatively, only the backgrounds of the new wallpaper seams can be painted.

Start wallpapering away from the window. Mark the place of the first year on the wall with a bullet wire and a pencil. Mark the location of the leak each time you move to a new wall. Fold the top of the spout open and fasten it so that a few cm goes over the roof molding. Make sure the leak comes straight. Release the bottom of the hose and secure it with a wallpaper brush, roller or spatula. Flatten from center to edges. Attach the next spill to the butt joint, ie the edges facing each other, unless the roll label mentions a couple of millimeters of glue joint.

Angles: Measure how far the distance from the previous year is to the angle. Cut the new hive so wide that it extends 2-3 cm beyond the outer corner. The next leak (the part cut off from the previous leak) is pressed over the part that crosses the corner so that the leak is less than a couple of miles from the corner. Do the inside corner as well. After the corner, mark a straight line on the next wall according to the split hose and attach the hose according to the line – not the corner. Finishing: Cut the top and bottom edges of the wallpaper neatly with a sharp carpet knife or cutter. Use a long ruler as a guide. Sockets and switches: Take care of electrical safety – power off. Wallpaper over a hole in the circuit breaker or socket. Cut off the extra part while the wallpaper is still moist. Replace the circuit breakers and sockets.
