Bio Statement

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

"Wallpaper patterns may be divided into two primary classes, the ""one-top"" or straight pattern papers, and the ""two-top"" or drop patterns. It is required to cut these documents so that the design matches when hung. For this factor consideration of the design is necessary prior to cutting such papers. The top of a flower or figure should not be halved. The paper ought to be so put that a whole flower or figure need to be left about a 1/2 inch listed below the photo molding. A ""one-top"" or straight-patterned paper is one in which the design matches on opposite sides of the paper. They are simple and great for jobs in a kid's bathroom, with patterns that match the bathroom 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 needs to be produced cutting and trimming at the top and bottom. This need to be at least 6"". It may be needed to cut more depending upon the pattern. For example, a paper might have a pattern which is 12"" high. If there is no room at the top for cutting, the entire pattern should be cut off since, as has actually been stated, the top must always have an entire pattern resting about 1/2"" below the photo 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 completion of the table, and after that unroll 7', which will cover the length of the table. Examine the style to determine the very best place to cut, keeping in mind that the top of the pattern will be about 1/2"" listed below the image molding. This first piece might be a little bit longer in order to get the leading right. The remainder of the paper is cut into equal lengths of 8' 6"". Do refrain from doing this in the restroom. No bathtub is a great table, even if it is a walk-in tub. A ""two-top"" or drop pattern is one in which the style does not fall directly opposite. In a drop pattern, every other length drops one half of a pattern. If the pattern is 20"" long, for example, 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 same, every other length would not match at the top This is especially noticeable in small locations like bathrooms, where the wallpaper is among the only things to take a look at while waiting on the sauna or being in the tub. The wallpaper is noticeable from the shower also. The simplest method to cut these papers is to take lengths from different rolls. Cut the first length as explained 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 alternately from one roll and the other, keeping the 2 separated. The very first, third, 5th, and so on, lengths will have one leading, while the second, fourth, 6th, and so on, will be various. Prior to hanging the first width, the location at which to begin should be figured out. This is found by choosing which the most prominent walls are. They are generally 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 a mismatch occurs, it will be least obvious. If there is no mantel in the room, the first width should be hung between the windows. Then follow around to the right, covering one side of the space. Go back to the window end and paper the other side. By this plan of procedure, you will always have excellent light. If you are operating in a restroom with no windows, try attaching an intense lamp onto the shower tray or the shower doors (this may be tough with frameless shower doors) to eliminate most dubious corners. If there is a mantel in the room, the very first pieces are put there, since it is the most conspicuous point. The wall over the mantel is marked so that the paper will be centered. This treatment is as follows: Determine the width of wall over the mantel to find the center. Draw a line through this center. If the area needs four widths, position the first width of paper with its center on the center line of the mantel. A full width is put to the left and right of the center piece. These three widths are brief lengths. The remaining part will be covered with 2 partial widths of full length. Cut these 1/2"" wider than required, so regarding have the edges turn the corner."
