In style...again

Since wallpaper is becoming hot again, I thought I'd do a little searching for some fun and modern papers. Here's what I found...


Walnut Wallpaper

So enjoy looking at all the cool stuff out there now and after you've found the perfect wallpaper, here's a few steps on how to do a general estimation for how much wallpaper you will need for your space:

1. Multiply the height and width of each wall. Add the figures together.

2.Divide the total by 30(or another number depending on the wallpaper's repeat) to get the number of rolls needed.

3. Subtract 1 roll for every 2 openings (doors and windows). Wallpapers are packed in double roll bolts.

4. You need to know the width and the length of the paper and the pattern repeat. (straight match or drop match)

5. If you are having a professional install it for you, make sure they measure the room to be sure everything is correct.

Easy enough, huh? Now if only I could convince my hubby that it is easy to wallpaper!


  1. Great tips since I'm trying to convince my husband to wallpaper the dining room and I'm now thinking that I'm going to splurge and get the KWID Trellis that I've been lusting after for quite some time! Fingers crossed he either says yes or doesn't care either way.

  2. Hey girl, great minds think alike. Love this post - I hope I've got enough grass cloth for my office based on this math !



I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line!
