Before you can transform your space with beautiful wallpaper, you’ll need to measure your walls to ensure you order the right amount of wallpaper for your project. Follow this step-by-step guide to measuring your walls accurately and efficiently.

Gathering Necessary Tools

Before you begin measuring your walls, gather all the necessary tools and materials you’ll need for the job. This includes a tape measure, pencil, and paper to record your measurements.

Taking Precise Measurements

Start by measuring the height and width of each wall you plan to cover with wallpaper. Use a tape measure to get precise measurements, and be sure to measure from floor to ceiling and from corner to corner for accuracy. Don’t forget to account for any doors, windows, or other obstacles that may affect the placement of the wallpaper.

Calculating Total Square Footage

Once you have the measurements for each wall, calculate the total square footage of wallpaper you’ll need for the entire room. To do this, multiply the height by the width of each wall to get the square footage of each wall, then add the square footage of all the walls together to determine the total amount of wallpaper you’ll need.

Ordering Wallpaper

When ordering wallpaper, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and order slightly more than you think you’ll need. This allows for any mistakes or miscalculations during installation and ensures you have enough wallpaper to complete the job without running out.
