If you want to be sure that none of it comes up, like around the edges, then the best way to hang the paper is to hang it wet. That means that you soak the entire parcel of paper into the water, folding it neatly as you do so. This does not cause any creases in the paper when it is completely wet and then you can smooth it out using a tool made for this purpose. You do not want to hang dry paper as this is difficult to smooth out. You want to work carefully with the paper and get that which is good quality as you do not want the paper to tear when you are hanging it.
You also want to make longer cuts into the paper, which is why you will have to fold it carefully into the water before hanging. The longer the cuts, the better it looks. When it comes to corners, you want to crease the paper into the corners with a tool. You do not want to end the paper at the corners of the rooms but hang the paper in such a way that the paper actually hangs in the corners and is smoothed out on either end. This is how professionals hang paper. You also want to make sure that you have enough rolls of the paper and stay within the design that you are using. One way to get started is to use a simple design in one of the rooms in your home so that you can see how easy this is to hang the paper. Once you know what you are doing, you can then hang more intricate designs of paper in other parts of the house. Even if you do not want to hang the paper yourself, you can hire a paper hanger to do the job for you and purchase the paper itself at an online dealer where you can still save a great deal of money.
