Wallpaper Vertical Stripes On Walls Ideas
Measuring, cutting and pasting
When you are calculating the number of rolls of wallpaper you will need, it is best to err on the side of generosity and to buy all the paper at the same time, from the same batch.
To work out the number of rolls you need, measure the height of the walls and add 10cm (4in) as an overhang allowance, and the length of the paper s pattern repeat if there is one. This is the length of each drop. Divide the total length of a roll (usually 10m [33ft]) by the length of your drop to discover how many drops you will get from one roll (A).
Measure the distance around the room and divide that figure by the width of a roll (usually 52cm [20/fin]) to find out how many drops you will need to paper the room (B).
Then divide the number of drops required to paper the room by how many drops you will get from one roll of wallpaper to calculate the number of rolls (C) you will need to complete the job (BA=C). Round up to the next whole roll and add a roll in case your arithmetic is slightly inaccurate.
