Preventing White Seams on Dark Paper

September 18, 2013

Digital ImageWallpaper expands when it absorbs moisture from the paste, and often then shrinks when it dries. This can leave a hair’s breadth gap at the seam, and if the wall / primer is white, it can be very noticeable.

Here I have added a line of dark brown paint along the seam line, underneath the wallpaper, to prevent white from showing.

This pattern is a Kelly Hoppen design, #30-379 by Graham & Brown, a nice-to-hang, textured non-woven wallpaper.
