Spoonflower offers 3 wallpaper options: **Prepasted Removable Smooth**, **Peel and Stick Removable Woven** and **Non-Pasted Traditional Pebble**. Our **Smooth and Woven** wallpapers are completely removable and created for DIY installers- making both options great for renters! Our **Pebble** wallpaper is more suitable for commercial spaces with a professional installation. For a more detailed exploration of wallpaper basics, please review Wallpaper Terms and FAQ.

**Note:** Spoonflower wallpapers (Smooth and Woven) work best on smooth, non-textured walls, over white or light non-scrubbable latex paints that have cured for at least 4+ weeks. For textured or scrubbable surfaces, Pebble wallpaper is a better choice for this surface.

## How to Measure Your Walls

Please see the image below for reference. You do not need to measure the crown moulding, and the measurements for each wall only need to include the height (in feet or cm) and the width (in inches or cm). To help ensure a seamless repeat across the wallpapered space, we do not exclude doors or windows from the dimensions for these calculations. When they are excluded the rolls do not typically align with each other during installation.

If you are have questions about the installation process, be sure to check out our handy illustration videos at the bottom of the page **here**. If you may need assistance with how to measure your space, please don't hesitate to **contact** us!

## Estimate with Spoonflower's Wallpaper Calculator

Spoonflower offers a calculator to help you estimate how many rolls you likely need to order. A small link to this calculator can be found next to the "SIZE" field on any wallpaper design page.

After selecting your preferred paper type, click **CALCULATOR** and the tool "How much wallpaper should I order?" will appear. Enter your wall height and wall width - as feet and inches or in metric/centimeter depending upon your saved preferences - and our calculator will suggest how many rolls of that paper type you should order, including roll length!

Please know that this number is an estimate only, but our calculator will take variables such as half-drop designs and vertical design repeat into consideration when necessary. Check the image below to note additional features of this tool, such as the convenience to drop the number of rolls directly into your cart! More info found in the section below: Ordering Rolls

## Calculate How Many Rolls to Order Manually

If you want to check the math and calculate how much paper to order manually, follow one of the following two formulas below. Which formula depends upon the type of wallpaper - Smooth, Woven or Pebble - that you are planning to purchase.

**For Prepasted Removable Smooth and Peel and Stick Removable Woven:**

We print these two popular Do-it-Yourself papers in selected whole-foot (or round centimeter) increments. It is good practice to order slightly longer rolls in order to ensure that any vagaries of architecture or slight differences in height along the wall can be compensated for during installation.

**Follow these steps for:**

**▶ Imperial Measurement (inches and feet)**

**1. Round the height of your wall to the nearest roll length (3, 6, 9, 12 feet).**

Example: If your wall measures just under 8 feet, not including the crown moulding, round up to 9 feet.(Note: If you are ordering for multiple walls in the same room, use the tallest wall height so that all the rolls are the same length.)

**2. Calculate how many rolls you need**

Take the full width of your wall (in inches) and divide it by 24”. If you will be installing on multiple walls in the same room that touch each other, add up the widths of each wall and divide that number by 24”. If the walls are not continuous, simply use this formula to determine the number of rolls necessary for each wall individually.

**3. Round this answer up to the full number and order that many rolls of wallpaper.**

**▶ Metric Measurement**

**1. Round the height of your wall to the nearest roll length (100 cm, 260 cm, 310 cm, or 400 cm).**

Example: If your wall measures just under 220 cm, round up to 260 cm.(Note: If you are ordering for multiple walls in the same room, use the tallest wall height so that all the rolls are the same length.)

**2. Calculate how many rolls you need**

Take the full width of your wall (in centimeters) and divide it by 61 cm. If you will be installing on multiple walls in the same room that touch each other, add up the widths of each wall and divide that number by 61 cm.

**3. Round this answer up to the full number and order that many rolls of wallpaper.**

**For Non-Pasted Traditional Pebble:**

One roll of Traditional Pebble measures 27 feet (Imperial) or 10 meters (Metric), to covers approximately 36-40 square feet (6 square meters) once trim and pattern repeat are factored in. This may vary depending on wall height, design scale, and other factors.

Since every order is custom printed and color can vary between print runs, ensure you order enough rolls and by giving yourself a little wiggle room in calculations. Rounding up, when directed, is important.

**Follow these steps for:**

**▶ Imperial Measurement (inches and feet)**

**1. Take the measurements of the wall(s) you will be covering.**

For our example we have two walls. **One is 142" W x 108” H, and the other: 76" W x 108” H**

**2. Determine the number of panels you'll need.**

- Add the widths of all the walls you are planning to cover
- Divide that number by the width of the roll of paper, 24" (2')
- Round this number to the next whole number. This is the number of panels.

**Example**: 142” + 76” = 218”; 218” divided by 24" = 9.08 panels; **rounded: 10**

**3. Find the vertical repeat of your design.**

You will find the vertical repeat on the design preview page of every wallpaper design. Scroll down from the top of the page to the “WALLPAPER DETAILS” box on the left and Click “+ More”. The first line of information is the vertical repeat measurement. (see screenshot below)

**Example: 10.3" vertical repeat of the design**

**4. Find the number of vertical repeats on one roll of Pebble.**

Each roll of Pebble Wallpaper is 324" (27') long. Divide 324" by the vertical repeat from Step 3.

**Example:** 324” divided by 10.3” = **31.5 repeats per roll**

**5. Find the number of vertical repeats for one panel on the wall.**

- Add 5" to the height of your installation wall (Step 1) for the height of each panel
- Divide this panel height by the vertical repeat of the design
- Round this number to the next whole number. This is the repeats per panel

**Example:** 108” + 5” = 113”; 113” divided by 10.3” = 10.97; **rounded: 11**

**6. Find the number of panels one roll of Pebble will cover.**

Divide the number of vertical repeats per roll (Step 4) by the number of vertical repeats per panel (Step 5). Do NOT round.

**Example:** 31.5 divided by 11 = **2.9 panels per 27'**** roll**

**7. Calculate the number of rolls you will need to order.**

Divide the total number of panels needed (Step 2) by the number of panels covered by one roll of Pebble (Step 6) and round up to the nearest whole number.

**Example:** 10 divided by 2.9 = 3.4 rolls. **Rounded: 4 rolls**

**8. Order 4 rolls of this paper**

**▶ Metric Measurement**

**1. Take the measurements of the wall(s) you will be covering.**

For this example we will be installing wallpaper on two walls. **One is 360 cm W x 270 cm H, and the other: 220 cm W x 270 cm H**

**2. Determine the number of panels you'll need.**

- Add the widths of all the walls you are planning to cover
- Divide that number by the width of the roll of paper, 61 cm
- Round this number to the next whole number. This is the number of panels

**Example**: 360 cm + 220 cm = 580 cm; 580 cm divided by 61 cm = 9.51 panels; **rounded: 10**

**3. Find the vertical repeat of your design.**

You will find the vertical repeat on the design preview page of every wallpaper design. Scroll down from the top of the page to the “WALLPAPER DETAILS” box on the left and Click “+ More”. The first line of information is the vertical repeat measurement. (see screenshot below)

**Example: 61.21 cm vertical repeat of the design**

**4. Find the number of vertical repeats on one roll of Pebble.**

Each roll of Pebble Wallpaper is 1000 cm (10 m) long. Divide 1000 cm by the vertical repeat from Step 3.

**Example:** 1000 cm divided by 61.21 cm = **16.34 repeats per roll**

**5. Find the number of vertical repeats for one panel on the wall.**

- Add 12 cm to the height of your installation wall (from Step 1) to determine the height of each panel
- Divide this panel height by the vertical repeat of the design
- Round this number to the next whole number. This is the repeats per panel

**Example:** 270 cm + 12 cm = 282 cm; 282 cm divided by 61.21 cm = 4.61; **rounded: 5**

**6. Find the number of panels one roll of Pebble will cover.**

Divide the number of vertical repeats per roll (from Step 4) by the number of vertical repeats per panel (from Step 5). Do NOT round.

**Example:** 16.34 divided by 5 = **3.27 panels per 10 meter roll**

**7. Calculate the number of rolls you will need to order.**

Divide the total number of panels needed (from Step 2) by the number of panels covered by one roll of Pebble (from Step 6) and round up to the nearest whole number.

**Example:** 10 divided by 3.27 = 3.06 rolls. **Rounded: 4 rolls**

**8. Order 4 rolls of this paper**

## Ordering Wallpaper from the Marketplace

Review the example below for reference when ordering test swatches or rolls of wallpaper.

### Ordering a Test Swatch

Before ordering rolls of wallpaper *we highly recommend ordering a sample to ensure the wallpaper type, color and scale meet your expectations. It is also wise to install this Test Swatch, waiting a full 24 hours after installation to be certain it adheres correctly*.

From the design page:

- Select the wallpaper type for your order by linking into the
**(1.) Wallpaper**pop-up menu. - If you have a wallpaper type in mind, enter it by name into the

**(3.)Select**next to the image of your choice. - Select Test Swatch from
**(4.) SIZE**and then - Enter the
**(5.) AMOUNT**, or number of Test Swatches you need for this design.

Click the **Add to Cart** to add the swatch to your cart. Continue shopping for other products or **complete your purchase**.

### Ordering Rolls

Similar to ordering a Test Swatch, follow steps 1, 2 and 3 from the above then select the proper **(4.) SIZE,** based upon your height measurements, and **(5.) AMOUNT,** based upon the total number of rolls you need.

From there click **Add to Cart **then return to shopping or **begin checking out**.

## Important Information about Print Lots (Dye Lots)

Since every Spoonflower product is custom-printed, each individual order is like its very own dye-lot, or print-lot. While large color shifts between orders should not be an issue, there can be slight variations if two orders are placed, and hence printed, at different times. Just like when buying commercial fabric or yarn or wallpapers with dye-lots, it is always ideal to order enough digitally printed paper to complete your project all at once.
