Be very careful when applying wallcoverings over, under or
around electrical switches, sockets and similar items. We recommend turning off
the supply at the electrical panel.
Remove screws and switch plate, smooth the wallcovering down
very gently over the fitting.
For square shapes, pierce the paper and make diagonal cuts
from the center to each corner.
Press the wallcovering firmly around the edge of the
fitting, lightly mark the outline and trim away the surplus.
Take care when wallpapering around sockets.
For circular objects, such as ceiling centers and light
fittings, make a series of cuts producing a star shape. Press down around the
outline, mark and trim in the same way.
Some decorators prefer to slightly unscrew the fitting so
that the wallcovering can be tucked just behind its edges. In such cases, the
power must be switched off to avoid electric shock.
Ideally, you should drain a radiator and take it off the
wall so that you can paper behind it. If that is not possible, first turn off
the heat and wait for the radiator to cool. Paste the strip of paper to the
wall above the radiator. Then slit it from the bottom edge so that you can
smooth it down on either side of the radiators fixing brackets. Press the paper
into place behind the radiator, using a narrow radiator paint roller.
