The edges of the wallpaper borders play a very important role in the improvement of the walls. Wallpapers have three main types: self-adhesive, non-glued and pre-glued edges. Self-adhesive and pre-glued edges are usually pre-coated; therefore, you do not need to buy extra glue when gluing them. Pre-painted edges usually require a commercial activator that is used to activate the paste; however, with self-adhesive, you only need to remove the plastic that is on the back and stick them on the wall. Not glued edges usually do not have a preliminary coating; therefore, you need to glue or glue in addition to glue them on the wall.
When buying wallpaper you need to consider a number of considerations.
The first thing you should consider is the size of your room. You need to measure this so that you can know the right size of wallpaper borders that you should buy. When you go to the market to buy paper, you do not have to buy those that have the exact size of your home. Experts recommend buying at 10-15% longer than indicated by measurement.
This should give rise to a number of problems that you may encounter when inserting paper. One of the problems you may encounter is breaking the paper. When the documents are torn, you do not have to worry, since you will have additional documents to replace. After you have purchased the documents, you must paste them correctly so that they can give your room the right appeal.
If you apply a vinyl frame on vinyl wallpaper, be sure to use vinyl curbs on vinyl. If you are going to apply the edges on painted walls, you must first sand the edge before applying the paper. To make paper handling easier, it is recommended to fold the paper according to their style without bending the folds. If you are going to hang the edges on the top of the wall, you must follow the roof line around the room, allowing at least ½ “to overlap the corners.
When you hang paper in the center of the room, you must use a level and a pencil to draw a thin line around the room. When hanging paper on door and window frames, horizontal and vertical stripes should be placed at the corners, and then both strips should be cut at a 45-degree angle in the corner. You must remove excess parts and clean the glue with a sponge.
After applying the paper, align the edges of the wall with a straightening tool and remove any air bubbles. This is to create a solid seal. Once the edges have reached the end of the wall, you should trim them at the point where you can easily match the design with the previous strip. When cutting, you should allow about one inch overlap.
