Corners, Doors, Windows, Radiators & Ceilings
Doors must always be papered from one side only. At the same time, it is important to note that the non-woven length should not overlap the door frame by more than approx. 3 cm. The overlapping excess can be cut off cleanly with a utility knife and a plastic spatula.
As a rule, begin with the first length at one side of the window. Leave enough excess non-woven wall covering at the window in order to cover the window reveals adequately.
At the edge of the upper window reveal and at the window sill, use a utility knife to cleanly cut off the excess wall covering. This excess section can now be used to line the window reveal.
The non-woven excess piece between the point where the wall and ceiling meet and the window reveal is cleanly cut off. Any excess wall covering in the area of the window reveal is to be neatly trimmed off.
Wallpapering “around” radiators. Non-woven wall covering is not applied behind radiators!
The corner can also be papered directly with Go/Pro non-woven material.
Do the wallpapering across the recesses of the ceiling lights. When dry cut out the non-woven material covering the socket with the utility knife. After unscrewing the light switch and socket covers, you can paper over the exposed fittings. Before starting switch off the electric supply to the room concerned. After the wallpaper has been applied, immediately cut a cross-shaped incision into the non-woven wall covering and clean the switch mechanism to remove any adhesive. Once the non-woven wall covering is dry, use the utility knife to trim to the proper switch dimensions.
Wallpapering is usually done “away from the light”, that is, starting with the ceiling working from the window towards the centre of the room. Mark two points with the chalk line, lining-up with an approximate distance of 500mm to the parallel wall. This ensures that the consecutive non-woven lengths will be straight, even if the walls are not square to the ceiling.
Ideally two people are needed.
Roll out the first strip, which had been cut to size, to the outside, i.e. away from you. Apply the non-woven fabric to the paste bed leaving a slight overlap at the wall. The non-woven lengths are rolled out wrinkle-free and applied edge to edge using the foam rubber roller.
Press the excess length with a plastic spatula into the angle where wall and ceiling meet and trim cleanly using the utility knife
