Hi All,

I will be using two colors (two rolls of fabric), one for the top half of the room and one for the lower half with a chair rail dividing the two halves. When installing GOM do you guys cut it at the corners and staple it there or wrap it as one piece around the room?

It kind of depends on how you plan on hiding the staples, especially on the vertical edges. I have columns, and corner cabinets in my theater so we pre-cut all the GOM for each section, stapled it up and then installed the pre-painted columns and corner units to hide all the vertical staple lines for a nice clean look. The horizontal staple lines were covered by crown molding at the ceiling, the chair rail in the middle (where the upper an lower GOM sections meet), and the base molding at the floor.


Just make sure your furring strips give you room to secure your molding so you hit wood and not just "float" the molding on the fabric for a more secure and lasting bit of construction.


Here are a couple of pics to show you an idea of how this looked.
