Wallpaper needs to be trimmed, but it is not completely dry, can you cut it?
If you can, then what is better, how to properly cut the wallpaper and not to tear them?
Maybe you need to wait until they are completely dry? Is there any other options? I always tear it (
Immediately I want to note, the roll of wallpaper is cut into sheets, and at this trimming first takes the size from the floor and to the ceiling (if the wallpaper is glued to the walls), then the roll is rolled out and cut into sheets and all this is done on dry.
At this stage and is fitting pattern, if the wallpaper with a pattern, plus take into account the step of the figure can be different.
Wallpaper pasted from the ceiling plinth (aka baguette), that is, first glued plinth and then glue the wallpaper, but not vice versa.
I usually trimmed the wallpaper after they dried, it is easier, and even more correct, especially if it's about a thin wallpaper (such as single-ply paper).
Wet wallpaper is easier to tear, compared with the dried.
But if that happens, I usually trim the wallpaper with a box cutter.
The knife with replaceable blades, blades (spare) are included, for this work it is better to use a new blade.
Next, trim better along something, it certainly can be a metal ruler, if you trim from below along the floor plinths.
If along the ceiling baseboard, it is better to take a painter's spatula (metal).
Spatula width of 20 cm (a rough figure).
But first preparation, bend the wallpaper (excess), this line bending will be a guide.
If the wallpaper is dense (an important point, thin wallpaper is better not to do so), the line of curvature "pass" spatula tip (edge) but do not hurry, it is important not to tear the wallpaper.
Next, we put a spatula to the planned line, and begin to trim them with a wallpaper knife, the blade extends not completely.
The cut itself must be confident, spatula keep almost parallel to the surface (at a slight angle).
It is desirable to cut the wallpaper the first time, so as not to return.
Next, neatly remove the trimmed wallpaper, do not pull them, perhaps not all the length of the trimmed them completely.
The blade of the knife, when trimming, is between the trowel and the baseboard (as an option).
Exactly the same way wallpaper is trimmed and in the area of slopes (door, window), here you can use the same knife, but the cut is made not only along the trowel, but also a ruler (metal).
