Measuring Your Wall for Wallpaper
We are proud to announce that we have added a new line of Peel-and-Stick wallpaper rolls. Affordable uniQstiQ wallpaper rolls solve a problem as old as time itself: how do I wallpaper my wall with all these different wallpaper panel sizes?
Our wallpaper rolls are all standard sized 25 inches wide by 200 inches high with internal repeats. This makes it easy to calculate exactly how much wallpaper is needed without waste.
1) Measure your wall's overall width and height.
For example, a wall with 8 foot ceilings has a height of 96 inches high. If this same wall is 12 feet wide, then the overall dimensions are 144 inches wide x 96 inches high.
If we will be applying this trendy, floral design, then the internal repeat is every 25 inches high. This means one wallpaper roll of 200 inches high is composed of (8) 25 inch repeats that are continuous with one another horizontally. This allows you to piecemeal around doors and windows while maintaining a continuous design between panels.
2) Determine how to trim one roll to suit your height.
For our example of a 12 foot wide by 8 feet high wall (144"W x 96"H), one wallpaper roll may be trimmed in the middle to make two 25 inches wide by 100 inches high panels that are continuous with one another. For this wall, one roll would cover 50 inches wide by 100 inches high. Since our total width is 144 inches wide, we would need (3) rolls to cover this wall.
Another example would be calculating the width four rolls may cover on a wall that is 10 feet high (120"H). Using the previous design repeat of 25"H from this design, one wallpaper roll may be trimmed to two different sized panels; one panel sized 125 inches high and the other sized 75 inches high. The panels are trimmed in increments of 25 inches in order to maintain the horizontal design continuity of the panels when applied to the wall. The 75 inch panels are continuous with themselves both vertically and horizontally; allowing them to be utilized rather than wasted.
Four rolls with a repeat of 25 inches high may be trimmed into (4) panels sized 25 inches wide by 125 inches high and (4) panels sized 25 inches wide by 75 inches high. These (4) 75 inch high panels may be combined to cover an area sized 50 inches wide by 150 inches high by combining the panels. From the 125 inch high panels, we would cover a total area sized 100 inches wide by 125 inches high and, from the 150 inch high combined panels, we would cover a total area sized 50 inches wide by 150 inches high.
By trimming at the baseboards on our ten foot ceiling (120"H), 4 rolls would cover a total area sized 150 inches wide by 10 feet high. This would also leave us with two panels sized 25 inches high by 30 inches high and four small pieces sized five inches high by 25 inches wide as waste or to be used around trim.
3) Order the amount of rolls necessary to wallpaper your wall
Round up when ordering wallpaper rolls. For example, if you have calculated you would need 2.4 of our wallpaper rolls to cover your wall, you would order 3 wallpaper rolls.
**Pay attention to the internal repeat listed on each listing for each design**
The majority of our wallpaper rolls have a vertical repeat of every 25 inches high, but there are exceptions such as this popular design, which has a repeat of every 16.6 inches. Our mural collections do not have an internal repeat but they do repeat with themselves. More on matching our murals may be found in the mural section.
