Can I put up wallpaper by myself?

Where do you start when wallpapering on the wall?

Ideally begin at the corner and hang your first length of paper on a wall with no doors or windows. That way, you can hang a full length from the ceiling to the top of the skirting-board. Choose a wall to the right of the window if you’re right-handed or to the left if you’re left-handed.
