Before you glue the wallpaper on the ceiling with your own hands, you need to take care of the preparation of the surface. The main requirements are a smooth and smooth plane, which must be primed and dried. This is all achieved by performing an "improved" sandless cover, that is, ceiling filler. Must be mounted and painted ceiling decor - moldings, ceiling sockets, baguettes, as well as a starting line, which will glue the first canvas.

Next, you should decide on the choice of wallpaper, because they are two-layer, the so-called "duplex" and single-layer( "simplex").Two-layered are made of a face - vinyl layer and a substrate of paper or non-woven fabric. Materials on a paper basis very heavy in execution, on flizeline basis( or single-layer simplex) are considered to be lighter.

Vinyl wallpapers

Before you can glue vinyl wallpaper on the ceiling, they need to be prepared: cut the rolls to the required length, mark the top and bottom of each blade( otherwise the seam can be viewed) and lay one on top of the other.

Adhesive for vinyl wallpaper is applied in a thin even layer on the fabric, which folds in half or "envelope" and is aged for 5-10 minutes. Lastly, the glue is applied( preferably with a medium nap roller) and on the surface itself. Strips glue along the rays of light, that is perpendicular to the wall in which the window is located( if several, then choose the one from which most light comes from).

Surplus of glue and air is best cast out from under the canvas with a plastic or metal spatula, which can be observed on video and photos - from the center to the edges at an angle of 45 degrees( herringbone method).It is best to work together and begin to press together the canvas, starting from the center, moving from each other to the opposite edges of the room.

Non-woven wallpaper

Before you glue the non-woven wallpaper on the ceiling, you need to spend all the same preparation, but cutting the wallpaper is not necessary: ​​the wallpaper is not applied glue, the rolls are light, therefore, there is the opportunity to glue, doing the cutting in place. On the walls you can safely glue to one, and the ceiling is more difficult, it is highly desirable to work with a partner.

Adhesive for single-layer non-woven wallpaper is applied with a fairly thick, even layer with the help of a poplar or roller with a long pile. After applying to the site, equal to one canvas, immediately proceed to pasting, since the adhesive has the property of quickly drying out. You can also use universal and some types of vinyl adhesives that are suitable.

If there was a question about which wallpaper to glue on the ceiling, if it is uneven, the best choice will be non-woven under painting. For them, all the same glue and technology is used, but in order for the seams to come together, the linens are lapped 1-2 cm and cut in place, performing the ideal abutment. It is important in this case to pay attention to the presence of a pattern, its type and step, to more or less combine the figure and the flaw is not conspicuous.

Today, wallpapering on the ceiling is justified only in the case of an unstable surface, if everything is in order then, as a rule, a high-quality sandless covering with painting is performed.
