Coving awkward corners in bedroom

Postby bradls11 » Sun Jul 17, 2022 4:59 pm

Hi all. Currently redecorating a bedroom in my house and intend to use coving to cover a bad joint where the paper meets the wall. However we have a couple of awkward corners where the ceiling follows the roof. Has anyone dealt with a similar issue or got ideas on how to apply coving to areas like that attached

Hi bradles11,
Presumably your issue is with the curved part of the junction. If you are using expended polystyrenecoving this may be flexible enough to bend. If you are using plasterboard coving you could try wetting a section overnight and see if this will then bend. If not you will have to make a series of cuts part way through the coving and fill afterwards with the coving adhesive.

Yeah it's plaster coving unfortunately. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll give them a try and let you know how I get on.
I think ultimately it will be the multiple cuts that solves the problem.
