How To Measure For Wallpapers
- Measure the width of each wall where you would like to apply the wallpaper and add them all together ("Combined Width").
- Measure the height of the walls.
- Multiply the Combined Width by the height of the walls – this is the total square footage ("TSF") of wall space you need to cover with wallpaper. To keep things simple and to ensure you have enough paper do not make any deductions for windows, doors, cabinets, etc.
- The final step is to factor in the pattern repeat. If the pattern repeat is 18" or less then divide the TSF by 23, if pattern repeat is 19" to 25" then divide the TSF by 20. This final number is the total number of single rolls of wallcovering that is required for your project. If the pattern does not have a repeat (random match) then just use the TSF from step 3 above
You can also quickly and easily estimate how many rolls you need with the wallpaper calculator, available on the product page of each wallpaper pattern.
