If all lengths were cut the same, every other length would not match at the top.

"Wallpaper patterns might be divided into two primary classes, the ""one-top"" or straight pattern documents, and the ""two-top"" or drop patterns. It is needed to cut these papers so that the design matches when hung. For this factor factor to consider of the style is needed before cutting such papers. The top of a flower or figure need to not be cut in half. The paper needs to be so put that a whole flower or figure should be left about a 1/2 inch listed below the image molding. A ""one-top"" or straight-patterned paper is one in which the design matches on opposite sides of the paper. They are basic and helpful for tasks in a child's restroom, with patterns that match the restroom fixtures or bath tub. Prior to cutting the paper, the required length is to be determined. 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 cutting at the top and bottom. This ought to be at least 6"". It may be necessary to cut more depending on the pattern. For instance, a paper might have a pattern which is 12"" high. If there is no room at the top for trimming, the entire pattern must be cut off because, as has actually been stated, the top needs to always have an entire pattern resting about 1/2"" below the image molding or ceiling line. Allowing 6"" for cutting, 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 right-hand man, take 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. Examine the style to identify the best location 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 may be a bit longer in order to get the top right. The rest of the paper is cut into equivalent lengths of 8' 6"". Do refrain from doing this in the restroom. No bath 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 style 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 adjoining 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 especially obvious in little places like restrooms, where the wallpaper is one of the only things to look at while waiting on the sauna or being in the tub. The wallpaper is noticeable from the shower also. The most convenient method to cut these papers is to take lengths from different rolls. Cut the very 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 leading, while the 2nd, 4th, sixth, and so on, will be different. Before hanging the first width, the location at which to begin should be identified. This is found by choosing which the most popular walls are. They are normally those between windows and over the mantel. Then identify the least conspicuous place in the space and prepare 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 between the windows. Then follow around to the right, covering one side of the room. Go back to the window end and paper the opposite. By this strategy of treatment, you will constantly have good light. If you are operating in a restroom with no windows, try affixing an intense 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 room, the first pieces are put there, considering that it is the most noticeable point. The wall over the mantel is marked so that the paper will be centered. This procedure is as follows: Measure the width of wall over the mantel to discover the center. Draw the line through this center. If the area 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 3 widths are brief lengths. The staying part will be covered with two partial widths of full length. Cut these 1/2"" larger than needed, so regarding have the edges turn the corner."
