Make An Impact
So you finally decided on the wall you want to cover, congrats! Now you'll need to decide whether you want to cover your wall partially or fully.
Covering a wall partially offers a focal point for smaller rooms without being overwhelming, however covering a whole wall creates a real impact and will dramatically change the feel of the entire room. It is also the best bang for your buck!
First, let's make sure the size is right... 😉
How To Take Measurements
Not all walls are perfectly straight. For this reason, it is important to take measurements at 2 different points. For the width, take measurements at the top and bottom of the wall. For the height, take measurements on the left and right hand sides of the wall.
✔️ In both instances, make sure to use the greater number!
❌ Do NOT include crown moldings and baseboards in your measurements.
How To Measure Around Doors And Windows
We usually suggest that you include any door or window in the measurements you take. In this case, you will need to trim your wall mural or wallpaper on your end and discard the waste (unless you plan on covering the doors/windows).
Sometimes however, you will want to customize your wall mural around the doors and windows. This is especially true if the amount of waste is too great, making very little sense financially. Have a look at this picture to see how to measure around doors and windows.
💡 For complex projects and multiple walls, don't hesitate to request a rendering from our design team! It will give you a good idea of which sections of the wall mural will be visible and which will be trimmed off.
