Choosing the right material
How much wallpaper do I need?
Determine your square footage. To do this, measure the height of the walls and add them together. Then measure the width of your walls and add them together.
Multiply the total height in feet and the total width in feet of your room. This will give you the total square footage.
For each standard door subtract 17 from the square footage. (For any other size door subtract the square footage of the door from the total square feet).
Find the pattern repeat. This can easily be found on the product page of any item on our website.
If the repeat is small meaning the repeat is 12” or less including no repeat, divide the square footage by 25.
If the repeat is large meaning the repeat is 13” or more, divide square footage by 21.Your total will tell you the amount of single rolls you will need.
Remember, wallpaper is sold as a double roll bolt. When ordering 6 single rolls, you will receive 3 double roll bolts of wallpaper.
We always recommend working with a professional wallpaper installer.Because there can be slight variations in dye lots, we always recommend ordering 10-15% more than required to insure a perfect match in unforeseen circumstances.
WHAT IS A PATTERN MATCH?
The match means the place where the design matches at the seams. Check the back of your wallpaper for the match information.
WHAT ARE SINGLE ROLLS, DOUBLE ROLLS, AND BOLTS?
Wallpaper is commonly priced by the single roll, but is usually sold only in double roll or bolt increments (double rolls and bolts are interchangeable). This is because wallpapers are packaged in bolts (double rolls), and therefore they need to be sold in those increments. So if you order 10 single rolls of wallpaper, you can expect to receive 5 bolts when your order arrives.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PASTE-THE-WALL, PRE-PASTED, AND UN-PASTED AND WHICH ONE IS BEST FOR MY DECORATING PROJECT?
Paste-The-Wall is an unpasted wallpaper that you “paste the wall” to hang. In general, we find that paste the wall wallpaper is the easiest to apply.
Unpasted wallpapers have no paste applied to the backing so you will need to purchase paste. Unless otherwise noted, we recommend hanging these by “paste the wall” method. Otherwise, you will need to paste and book the paper.
Prepasted wallpapers have a cured adhesive applied to the backing, which is activated with water when "booked".
WHAT IS "BOOKING"?
"Booking" wallpaper is an industry term that refers to the position the wallpaper should rest in while the glue is activated.
