About this deal

Trim the allowance by using just enough pressure to cut through the wallpaper cleanly in a single stroke. You can avoid these common mishaps and achieve great results by following these tips: Cutting Wet And Dry Wallpaper

Push into the corner with a putty knife leaving an inch overhang and trim the next day when the paper will be drier. Another area that will require the use of scissors is cutting around circles or oblong shapes. If the paper is wet, the only safe way to make these cuts is with a pair of sharp scissors. Trimming The Top And Bottom Of The Panel Everything you need to know to get the perfect finish, from choosing the right paint to applying the final coat The initial cut of each main panel should allow two inches of overlap at the ceiling and the baseboard. If the wallpaper has a pattern, it may be wise to hold off trimming the top and bottom until all of the panels are installed. If there is a need to move the paper to keep the pattern match correct, this extra length could be helpful. Once cut, you cannot move the panels without leaving visible errors.Dry wallpaper is naturally stiffer, and easier to cut with scissors or a snap-blade knife. The reason is that dry wallpaper has more resistance to the sharpened edge of the blade, which allows the cut to be smooth and straight. If you have ever cut brown wrapping paper with a pair of scissors you may recall that once you started the cut, you could push the scissors straight across the paper without opening the blades any further. Most dry wallpaper will respond in a similar fashion. Wet Wallpaper One of the more complicated cuts required in hanging wallpaper is the double cut. This is required whenever overlaps occur, especially on inside and outside corners and murals. The risk in making this cut is that the blade will go too deep and cut into the face of the drywall below the wallpaper. Once the surface of the drywall has been slit, moisture will get in and the paper face will start releasing which will eventually make the seam fail. Once you are certain it is safe to trim the wallpaper, run your smoothing tool along the angle where the wall meets the ceiling and top of the baseboard, making a crease. Leaving the smoothing tool in the crease, take your snap knife and trim the excess paper.

The wallpaper should have been cut allowing two inches to remain inside the door or window opening. This excess will be cut away after the panel has been placed on the wall. https://www.piqsels.com/en/public-domain-photo-zhbjs I normally use the 18mm trimming knife as illustrated, usually with a large degree off success although a few times recently I've had papers (cheap ones) that snag on the blade to the extent that I move onto the next blade with each 'drop'.
