You will be decorating the rest of the room in no time!
- Get the right supplies
The good news is that you do not require a large amount of tools to get the job done. You do need a tape measure, a sharp utility knife, an applicator, a sponge, a large basin and a ladder. You need nothing else – extra things can go for waste collection as you will be hovering over them when you have the right tools.
- Love it or ditch it
Make sure you that really love the sample on the wall before making a commitment. It is much easier to roll over a coat of paint than it is to take down paper. While a small sample may look cute and fun, remember it will be covering the entire wall, so make sure it does not come out too busy.
- Measure more than once
A roll of wallpaper can get pricey, so make sure you know the dimensions of the wall you will be covering. Measure the room more than once to ensure you have the right number and double check at the store how much wallpaper you will need. Do not be afraid to ask if you are unsure. Good measurement will save you a lot of money from expert rubbish clearance company when you pile up all the extra wallpaper bits.
- The bathtub is your friend
Instead of using a pan to wet the wallpaper, you can use your bathtub, which is a much larger space allowing for more elbow room and makes for an easier clean up. This also eliminates having to purchase one of your supply items.
- Disassemble the room
Before you begin the application, get your space set up for work. Depending on which room you are working in, remove the switch plates, towel rod, wall-mounted fixtures and any other object that will be in your way. Move aside furniture that will be an obstacle. To avoid losing screws, separate them on plates and set them aside. This is also a perfect time to do house clearance to save some time from future de-cluttering. Do the clearance service and then get back to the wallpapers.
With these tips you will be able to carry out a great wallpapering job and your house will be about as refreshed as you can imagine. Enjoy the new look!
