It is also of great importance which wallpaper is best suited for the ceiling. Their choice should be approached with special care.

Regardless of the type of wallpaper selected, a preparatory operation must be carried out before starting the gluing procedure. The required amount of material for the upcoming work should be determined.
For this, the area of the ceiling is calculated: the length of its sides is measured by the plinth.
The surface of the ceiling must be prepared - clean and leveled. It is better to remove the existing lamp so that it does not interfere with the continuous pasting.
There are rules for pasting the ceiling, which it is advisable to observe:
Chalk print on the ceiling
The distance we need is the width of the wallpaper minus 2 .5 cm required for trimming.
It is necessary to drive a nail into the ceiling, at a distance of 4 cm from the larger wall, and at the previously calculated distance from the smaller one. On the opposite wall, in a similar place, another is driven in. The chalked rope should be tied to these two nails by pulling tight. Then pull it away from the surface and release it abruptly. When it hits the ceiling, it will leave a clear, well-defined chalk mark on it.
ceiling number of wallpaper stripes. If required, the drawing must be aligned. Each strip has a length equal to the width of the room, plus one centimeter to trim. If the room has an irregular shape, alcoves, bay windows, niches, individual pieces are made shorter or longer.
The glue is applied by brush or roller, in a neat, even layer, over the entire canvas.
The piece is then folded like an accordion to make it easier to hold at the top.We'll have to try so that the smeared sides do not stick together, and the front ones do not get dirty. And, of course, the wallpaper should not wrinkle and tear from careless movements.
It is necessary to provide yourself and your assistant with free access to the ceiling. The simplest goats will be made from a board and a pair of ladders.
If the distance between the stairs is more than two meters, then it is better to use two boards for strength.
One person will hold the folded, glued wallpaper, and the other person will start gluing it.
The edge is aligned with the chalk print, pressed, then the canvas is smoothed either with a special brush, or with a piece of clean soft canvas ...
As you adhere and move forward, the assistant straightens the folded accordion while checking that the edge of the canvas matches the chalk line.
When the strip is on the ceiling, you need to go over it again, more carefully, smoothing out all the folds and irregularities. This can be done with a clean cloth-wrapped roller. With careful movements from the center of the strip to the edges, the canvas is smoothed, pressed. All bubbles are removed and the wallpaper adheres tightly to the and.
It is convenient to trim the wallpaper after it has dried.
