How much wallpaper should I order

Wallpaper Information

Mural Wallpaper

Our Mural Wallpaper comes in panels of 70cm wide and 3 meters high.

1.  Measure the height of the wall, excluding skirting boards and cornicing, to make sure it is not over 3m high. Add an extra 15cm to the dimensions to allow for uneven walls and trimming.

2. Measure the width of the room (adding 15cm) and divide by 70 to calculate the number of panels you will need and order accordingly. 

ie. Wall width dimensions = 260cm     260 divided by 70 =  3.71.   So you would need to order 4 panels 

Wallpaper Rolls 

To begin, sketch out a plan on paper that includes each wall measurement.
1. First measure the width of the room (adding 15cm for trimming) and divide by 70cm, the width of the roll of wallpaper. This will give you the number of drops you need.
2. Measure the height of the room, excluding skirting boards and cornicing, but adding 15cm to allow for trimming.
3. Multiply the height by the number of drops and you’ll get the total number of metres you need. Our wallpaper comes in 10m x 70cm rolls
To prevent wastage, you should also try to subtract the area of the windows and doors.
Our wallpaper is printed to order, in batches. Make sure that you have ordered enough. It is always better to order slightly more than you need (in case something goes wrong) as there may be slight variations in pattern and colour with each different batch.
We have a minimum order of two panels on our Mural Wallpaper.

Wallpaper Hanging Instructions

This wallcovering is a specialist product, we recommend using a professional decorator.

1. Inspect Each Roll before cutting and hanging the wallcovering, ensure that all rolls have the same batch reference, are in good condition, with no variation in shade, and that no other faults are present. Please ensure that there are enough rolls to complete the job.

Do not assume that the wallcovering will come off the roll the correct way up, check with your retailer if you are uncertain.
Examination before hanging is the buyer’s responsibility. No claim can be accepted after the wallcoverings have been cut and hung.

Mural/ Wide Repeat Wallpapers
Our mural wallpaper comes in panel rolls of 70cm w x 300cm h.
Each panel will be marked A,B,C,D etc, depending on the width of the room. Ensure that they are in the correct order before hanging.

• Walls should be dry, clean and even.
• Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
• Roughen paint surfaces with sandpaper.
• For best results we recommend that the walls are cross lined using a quality lining paper. Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion.           Lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wallcovering.

2. Pasting and Hanging
• This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallcovering.
• A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mix ‘tub’ adhesive – specially for paste the wall non-woven papers should
   be used.
• Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the paper.
• Butt joints and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
• Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get on the brush or roller.
• No paste should be allowed to come in contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wallcovering.
• Paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
• Should any paste have been allowed to come in contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean       damp sponge.
• Trim top and bottom with a sharp knife.
• Un-coated papers should be cleaned by dusting with a clean dry brush or a brush accessory on a vacuum cleaner.
