How To Measure Your Wall

Measuring your wall is easier than you think. All we need is the width and height of the wall at the longest and widest possible points. Read the guide to learn more.

How To Measure

Take your measuring tape and note down the widest width and the highest height of your wall. We only need wall measurements, don’t include any skirting board or coving.
 
We will print your wallpaper 1-2% larger than the dimensions you give us to allow for adequate excess paper for trimming. This will make installation easier and safer.

Wall Types

We know walls come in all shapes and sizes, it’s one of the reasons we love them. For tips on measuring different wall types, scroll through the sketches below.

Standard Wall

Simply measure full height and width of the wall. We need your exact wall size, so don’t forget to double check the measurements before sending to us. We only need the dimensions of the surface you wish to cover, excluding any skirting boards or coving.

Sloped Wall

When you have a sloped ceiling or wall, measure the longest and widest parts only, ignoring any slopes. We provide the mural as a whole rectangle or square, and the slope is cut away during installation.

Pitched Wall

If you has two slants, simply identify and measure the longest part of the wall in both the width and the height. Again, we will produce your mural as a square or rectangle, with the cutaways taking place during installation.

Wall With Obstacles

When there is a door, window or other obstacle on your wall, only measure the total width and height of the wall, as the obstacle will simply be cut away during hanging. Feel free to send us additional measurements, a photo or a rough plan as we can add the position of the obstacle to your proof image. Easy!

Multiple Walls

If you’re looking to wrap a wallpaper around multiple walls, simply combine the widths of each wall and submit one measurement when ordering. There’s no need to order the mural as two separate pieces.
