  • If your pattern has horizontal lines; do the lines match up?
  • Are the walls well-prepared?
  • Do the walls need cross lining?
  • Have you got enough rolls?
  • Do you know the best place to start?
  • What is the best application method?

These are just some of the different elements that need to be considered. It is so important not to cut corners. What are you trying to achieve? A seamless finish!

Take time to evaluate the room and plan where you would like the seams to be placed. It may be that you have a repetitive pattern so you will need to make sure that the pattern falls correctly in line with the ceiling.
