How to Calculate Wallpaper Mural Size

Standard Wall

Measure the width and height of your wall and buy the closest sized mural.

Trim any excess wallpaper from the sides, ceiling and/or baseboard once it’s on the wall.

It’s recommended to have at least 1″ on each side, top and bottom to trim away during installation to allow for uneven/unlevel walls.

Wall with Obstacles

Measure the width and height of your entire wall, including any doors or windows, and buy the closest sized mural.

Trim excess wallpaper away from doors, windows and electrical outlets once it’s hung on the wall.

These wallpaper murals can be hung over smooth, flat doors if desired.  It’s recommended to add a plastic corner protector to any door edges for extra protection.

Trim excess wallpaper away from the sloped ceiling or bulkhead once it’s hung on the wall.
