Then identify the least obvious location in the space and plan the work to end up there, so if a mismatch occurs, it will be least visible.

"Wallpaper patterns may be divided into two principal classes, the ""one-top"" or straight pattern documents, and the ""two-top"" or drop patterns. It is necessary to cut these papers so that the style matches when hung. For this factor consideration of the design is essential prior to cutting such documents. The top of a flower or figure need to not be cut in half. The paper ought to be so put that a whole flower or figure ought to be left about a 1/2 inch below the image molding. A ""one-top"" or straight-patterned paper is one in which the style matches on opposite sides of the paper. They are easy and great for projects in a kid's bathroom, with patterns that match the restroom fixtures or tub. Before cutting the paper, the needed length is to be figured out. When this has been done, the paper is unrolled face up. Let us presume that the wall to be covered is 8' high. Allowance must be made for cutting and trimming at the top and bottom. This ought to be at least 6"". It may be essential to cut more depending upon the pattern. For instance, a paper might have a pattern which is 12"" high. If there is no space at the top for cutting, the entire pattern must be cut off considering that, as has actually been stated, the top should always have an entire pattern resting about 1/2"" listed below the picture molding or ceiling line. Enabling 6"" for trimming, the length of the strips to be cut will be 8', 6"". The table is 7' long. Take the roll of paper in the left hand, lay it on the table and, with the ideal hand, pull out 11/2"" from the roll. Let this hang over the end of the table, and after that unroll 7', which will cover the length of the table. Analyze the design to determine the very best place to cut, keeping in mind that the top of the pattern will have to do with 1/2"" below the image molding. This very first piece might be a little bit longer in order to get the leading right. The rest of the paper is cut into equal lengths of 8' 6"". Do not do this in the restroom. No tub is an excellent work table, even if it is a walk-in bathtub. A ""two-top"" or drop pattern is one in which the design does not fall straight opposite. In a drop pattern, every other length drops one half of a pattern. If the pattern is 20"" long, for instance, the adjacent pattern will be 10"" below this. It can be seen, then, that a drop pattern paper can not be cut the like a straight-pattern paper. If all lengths were cut the very same, every other length would not match at the top This is specifically visible in small places like restrooms, where the wallpaper is among the only things to take a look at while waiting for the sauna or being in the tub. The wallpaper is obvious from the shower also. The easiest way to cut these documents is to take lengths from different rolls. Cut the first length as described for a ""one-top"" pattern. Lay this aside. Cut the next length off the other roll, matching it at the top. Continue to cut lengths at the same time from one roll and the other, keeping the 2 separated. The first, 3rd, fifth, and so on, lengths will have one top, while the second, fourth, 6th, and so on, will be various. Prior to hanging the very first width, the place at which to begin must be figured out. This is found by deciding which the most popular walls are. They are usually those between windows and over the mantel. Then identify the least conspicuous location in the space and plan the work to finish there, so if an inequality takes place, it will be least obvious. If there is no mantel in the space, the first width ought to be hung in between the windows. Then follow around to the right, covering one side of the room. Return to the window end and paper the opposite. By this strategy of treatment, you will constantly have great light. If you are working in a bathroom with no windows, try attaching a bright light onto the shower tray or the shower doors (this might be tough with frameless shower doors) to get rid of most dubious corners. If there is a mantel in the space, the very first pieces are positioned there, since it is the most noticeable point. The wall over the mantel is marked so that the paper will be focused. This procedure is as follows: Determine the width of wall over the mantel to find the center. Draw a line through this center. If the space needs four widths, place the very first width of paper with its center on the center line of the mantel. A complete width is put to the left and right of the center piece. These three widths are short lengths. The remaining part will be covered with 2 partial widths of complete length. Cut these 1/2"" wider than required, so regarding have the edges turn the corner."
