How to glue wallpapers in corners - useful tips
Remember that in our apartments, even invery good, the corners are not always even. Therefore, do not glue just a whole strip of wallpaper in the corner. It is not necessary to do this. Probably the strip will be folded and there will be no docking with another strip. In this case, you can leave the protrusion around the corner about one and a half or two centimeters. If you do so, then the next strip will lie exactly on the wall. If you glue dense wallpaper, then you need to use a plumb line. Glue the remaining piece with the overlap on the adjacent wall. Here just a plumb line is useful. Wallpaper must be glued as vertically as possible.
If you glue the wallpaper in places where there are socketsor switches, then it is necessary to remove the covers that are installed on them. Do not forget to turn off the electricity. Paste wallpaper on top of the sockets and switches, after which you can make special cuts directly on the wallpaper. Now you can trim the wallpaper around the sockets and switches and put the covers in place.
When gluing wallpaper, you need to approach the doors withboth sides and correctly glue the corners with the wallpaper. The strip that grips the door is cut vertically to the beginning of the frame. Attach the strip along the edge of the wall. The ledge is cut off. Fit the ledge above the door frame and cut from the bottom.

Precisely fit and trim the contour of the edge will help a special triangular profile of the ruler. With the help of it you will avoid damage to the ceiling or skirting by glue. Wallpaper on the ceiling should be glued in the direction of the window and with the partner. One person applies one half of the strip while the other holds the other until the adhesive is fully adhered to the ceiling.
