How much wallpaper should I order?
To begin with, always order a swatch of the design, colourway and base material combination you plan to use for your project.
Wallpaper test swatches are available in the drop down menu of my listings.
To determine which length rolls you should purchase, round the height of your wall up to the nearest length available (1, 3, 9, 12 feet).
If you are ordering for multiple walls in the same room, use the tallest wall height so that all the rolls are the same length if the pattern is a BASIC repeat, this will make matching the pattern easier. More info in the FAQ below.
When measuring, make sure you ignore all trims, windows, doors or openings to ensure that the pattern repeats seamlessly.
eg: From ceiling to floor, the wall is 8ft high = you need to order 9ft long rolls.
Each roll covers a width of 24". Therefore, to calculate how many rolls you need, take the full width of your wall (in inches) and divide it by 24".
Or, if you are ordering for multiple walls in the same room that touch each other, add up the total width of all of your walls and divide that number by 24".
Round your answer up to the nearest full number to determine the amount of rolls to order.

Wallpaper should always be installed from the left side of the room to the right (or right to left) and from top to bottom.
Because this wallpaper is designed to slightly overlap on the long sides, approx 2cm of the right edge of the left hand roll lays under the left edge of the right hand roll.
