How to Measure for Wallpaper

Measure the width and the height of the complete wall. If you are going to wallpaper a wall that has different heights, for example, a staircase or a sloping ceiling, always measure the highest and widest point to cover the whole wall. We always produce your wallpaper in the exact measurements you specify, so we recommend you to add 5 cm (2 inches) to the measurements if the wall is uneven. 

If you’re wallpapering corners, we always recommend that you add 5 cm per corner and 5 cm on the height. For example, if you’re going to wallpaper all four walls in a room, add 5 cm per wall. This means you should add 5 cm to the height and a total of 20 cm to the width.

How do I measure the walls if I want to wallpaper an entire room?

Measure the width of your walls and add these measurements together. Add 5 cm (2 inches) per wall as a safety margin. Then measure the height. Always start from the highest point and also add 5 cm (2 inches) to that measurement. It is not possible to deduct wallpaper for windows or doors. These must be included in the dimensions to get the right pattern fit.

If you are wallpapering all four walls, then start from the least visible corner.
