1. Prepare the walls in the normal way.
2. Cross line the walls with at least 1,000 grade non-woven lining paper, using a quality ready mixed adhesive.
3. Decide on the starting point in the room & plumb a line for the first drop or draw a feint vertical guide line. (Be aware that marks on the lining paper may show through the pale background papers. It is advisable to test first).
4. Measure the length of the first drop adding sufficient excess top & bottom to allow for trimming. Take into account that variations in floor & ceiling level could occur.
5. Cut & number the drops required.
6. Paste the wall using a quality ready mixed adhesive, ensuring generous & even coverage of the area to be covered by the first drop, paying particular attention to the edges, the top & the bottom.
7. To hang the first drop, press it onto the pasted wall along the top. Keeping the rest of the paper off the wall, align the edge of the paper to the vertical guide line. Once in position use a plastic spatula to smooth the paper downwards & outwards, removing all air bubbles. Trim top & bottom.

9. Paste the required area & hang the second drop overlapping the edge of the first drop by approx. 20mm, to match the pattern. Secure the rest of the paper as before.
10. Cut through the centre of the overlap with a very sharp blade using a metal edge as a guide. Ensure metal cutting guide is appropriate for the wall surface and that the cutting blade is always sharp. We recommend a short edge that is pliable enough to mould to the wall.
11. Pull away the 2 strips of paper, flap back the edges & re-paste. Press edges back into position to form a perfect join. Now trim top & bottom.
12. Wipe any paste off surface of wallcovering with a damp cloth.
These are guidelines only. We advise that you contract a suitably qualified decorator to hang your wallpaper on the understanding that the wallpaper hanger may decide to work differently, given the particular levels of humidity and the site conditions present.
