How to measure your wall for wallpaper?

Welcome to The Printerie! We're thrilled to guide you through the process of measuring your wall accurately for a seamless wallpaper installation. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Materials Needed:
1. Tape measure (preferably a retractable one for convenience)
2. Pen or pencil
3. Paper for jotting down measurements

And, someone to help you hold the measuring tape!

Step 1: Prepare Your Wall
Ensure that your wall is clean and free of any obstructions. Remove any existing wallpaper or debris to get an accurate measurement.

Step 2: Measure the Height
Start by measuring the height of your wall from the floor to the ceiling. Place one end of the tape measure at the floor and extend it all the way up to the ceiling.

Record this measurement in meters.

Step 3: Measure the Width
Next, measure the width of your wall. Place the tape measure at one end of the wall and extend it to the opposite end. Record this measurement in meters as well.

Step 4: Compute the Square Meters
To calculate the total square meters of wallpaper needed, multiply the height of the wall by the width. The formula is:
Square Meters Height (m)×Width (m)

Step 5: Example Diagram
Below is a simple diagram to illustrate how to measure the height and width of your wall:

Step 6: Final Notes
- For walls with windows or doors, measure the height and width of the wall excluding these openings.
- If you have multiple walls to wallpaper, repeat the measurement process for each wall and sum up the square meters needed for all walls.
- It's always a good idea to add a bit of extra wallpaper to account for any mistakes or adjustments during installation.

Following these steps will ensure that you can ask for a more precise quotation for your custom wallpaper or order the correct amount of ready-made wallpaper from The Printerie for your walls. If you have any further questions or need assistance, feel free to reach out to us. Happy decorating!
