Before you go shopping for wallpaper, note the dimensions of the room or area, including ceiling heights. From this information, the shop assistants will be able to tell you how many rolls of wallpaper you will need. You also need to take into account the required rapport (otherwise known as the pattern offset), which is the distance in centimetres or millimetres over which the pattern repeats on the wallpaper. This will significantly affect the consumption of the wallpaper. Always buy extra, however, because wallpaper can be useful for repairs and you may not be available when you need it, or you may not be able to get the matching production batch of wallpaper.
If you are choosing wallpaper on our online shop, you can use our wallpaper calculator to calculate. Enter the wall dimension in centimetres and the specified rapport/offset of the wallpaper pattern.
