How Much Do I Need?

How much is enough?

Unsure of how much to buy? We've made measuring easy.

And you can always call us at 1-877-SHOP4-10 and we will be happy to assist you in determining the exact quantity of wallpaper you need.

Borders

All borders are manufactured, priced, and sold by the single spool. While product height differs with each pattern, spool lengths are either 15 feet or approximately* 12 feet.

To Determine Your Quantity

  1. Measure the length of each wall on which border is to be hung.
  2. Add them all together.
  3. This gives you the total lineal feet of border required.
  4. Divide this number by the spool length as indicated on the product’s detail page.

You may want to allow a foot or two extra to match the pattern accurately.

*Mural-Style Borders feature pattern repeats of approximately 12 feet (typically between 142” and 150”). The spool length of a Mural-Style Border is equal to its repeat, plus a few inches extra for overlap.

Wallpaper

All of our wallpaper is priced in single roll quantities. However, it is manufactured and sold in double rolls. A double roll will cover approximately 56 square feet.

To Determine Your Quantity

  1. Measure the entire distance around the room in feet.
  2. Multiply this by the height of the walls in the room.
  3. This gives you the total square footage to be covered.
  4. You now need to factor in the pattern repeat:
    • For a repeat of 18 inches or less - Divide the result of Step 3 by 23.
    • For a repeat between 19 and 25 inches - Divide the result of Step 3 by 20.
  5. The resulting number is the number of single rolls you need to order.

Please Note: It’s always better to order a little more than you need rather than too little. Wallpaper is made in batches called dye lots. Because the colors may vary slightly from dye lot to dye lot, we cannot guarantee an exact color match should you call back at a later date to order additional quantities. Therefore we strongly encourage you to order enough wallpaper the first time. To achieve this simply don’t deduct windows, doors, cabinets, etc. from your measurements, and always round up.

Murals and Peel & Stick

Our murals and our peel & stick products are measured and sold by the individual unit. These products don’t require a formula to determine quantity, but please keep in mind that our murals do not have a repeating pattern (even though they may appear to). If a mural is too small for a wall you wish to cover, you cannot simply buy two murals and install them side-by-side. This will leave a conspicuous seam between the two murals.
