Wallpaper Measuring Guide

How to work out how much wallpaper you require


What you need

- A tape measure or laser measure

How to do it

1. Measure the width of the wall from wall to wall.

If the wall is straight then this measurement should be fine.
If the wall is curved or a funny shape, then it is best to take a measurement at the bottom and the top and use the largest of the two


Add 5-10 cm for allowance as walls can often measure smaller than they are.


2. Measure the height of the wall from the ceiling to the edge of the skirting board or the floor.

Measure this in 3 places - the left corner, the middle and the right corner. Do not add in skirting unless you plan to remove it.


Add 5- 10 cm allowance for trimming off


3. Calculate how many rolls you need to cover the wall.
