Using the immense range of wallpaper borders for sale currently available, there must be little difficulty in finding one to match your wallpaper. To people individuals who are living in the current house using the smaller type of rooms. Imagine you are hesitating between picking out patterned or non-patterned wallpaper, considering whether one will crowd the room or the other is too plain and uninteresting owing to lack of pattern.

Assuming the area has a picture rail along with a plain or semi-plain paper has been hung. The border will be normally fixed directly underneath the rail.

The cutting and pasting of borders should be carefully done, especially when making corner motifs with narrow borders. So they won't confuse you I've selected the motif of two squares interlocking. These should be about eight inches square for the average size room. What this means is eight pieces of border, eight inches long for each corner, and 64 pieces if there are to become eight corners.

When you purchase the border you'll have a quantity of repeats all joined together alongside. Don't cut this up into single widths, but measure eight inches and cut through the whole width of the paper and several eight inch strips will be cut at the same time; then cut these into single eight inch lengths. Continue such as this until 64 pieces happen to be cut.

With one piece cut a 45 degree miter at each end. The easiest and quickest strategy is to show it back before the periphery is made into a right angle; the folded part then becomes a 45 degree angle, cut away across the crease and repeat it at the other end.

If care continues to be taken in cutting and fitting the miters before hanging, a clean and tidy job ought to be obtained.

In order to ensure too long lengths of border are hung perfectly straight, use a plumb line or a spirit level. A chalked bit of string (known as a snap line) and measure and mark each end where the border will be placed. Fix the string with a drawing pin on a single mark and holding the string taut to the other mark pluck it. A straight line is going to be left on the wall which to use the paper.

When two papers are used to form panels, hang the filling paper first, by snapping chalked lines around the wall and fitting the paper in this region, followed by the 2nd paper that will surround it. The border will be placed between the two so forming a panel. See it here http://stores.ebay.com/dreamwalldecor1/
