How to measure wall for removable wallpaper

We often receive questions about quantities and sizing of the wallpaper, so we decided to clarify it all with a blog post, accompanied with explanatory images. It is easier than you think!
One of the main things that seems to confuse people is that our wallpaper comes in panels, instead of rolls. So both height and width of the wall due to be covered should be considered when doing the calculations.
Another thing that seems to be a bit of a struggle is different sizing of materials. We offer two materials - self adhesive and traditional. Self adhesive material is available in 19” width panels, in 4 different heights (48”; 96”; 108”; 120”), the traditional material panel is 25” wide and comes in 3 different heights (96”; 108”; 120”).

First step is to measure total height and width of the wall in question. When that is done you should divide the total width of the wall with the width of one panel ( 19” for self adhesive material and 25” for traditional material), round the result up and that is how many panels you would need. Next step is to determine which height of panel would be the best for your wall, it should be exactly the height of your wall or taller.

Slanted wall

In the case with slanted wall you again have to measure the width and height of your wall, but in this case the maximum height has to be considered. Further it goes just as before. Determine how many panels you need and considering the maximum height pick the right sized panels for your project.

A wall with an obstacle

If your wall has a window, door or any other object that can’t be moved, we suggest to order a full wall of wallpaper and cut around the obstacle while applying, as that ensures the pattern to match on the wall. Again, measure the total width, calculate how many panels you would need, pick the height and add to cart.
