Usually they are left a few centimeters up and down and then cut what is left over, so that we adjust everything much better. With the tape measure we will get an idea of the surface of the wall and we have located the paper and know its width we can calculate everything we need, always buying a bit more than strictly necessary in case there is a failure to put it.
Glue the wallpaper
When we have the rolls of paper cut lengthwise, we have to Glue them in the back .

While one is holding it the other fits well with the previous strip to make it perfect. Although above and below that is removed later.
This is a very important part, and is that if the paper Is left with bubbles Not only will look bad, but it will spoil much sooner. So we must use the brush well on the surface of the paper so that it is very well glued. We assure ourselves with the hand that there is no bubble left on the paper.
