How do I work out how many rolls of wallpaper I will need?
Establish your area by measuring width by height of your feature wall/s. You will also need to measure any deductions to your area, such as windows and doors.
To get an area in square meters simply multiple width by height.
From the total area of the wall/s deduct the area of any Windows and doors.
A standard rule used for the allowance for pattern matching is to add 10%. A standard pattern repeat would be 40cm-60cm. For anything larger than this you may wish to add 20% to be sure.
Standard rolls of wallpaper cover 5.2 square meters in area. However some are larger. To establish the square meter coverage of the wallpaper, again multiply the width of the roll by the length.
You can then work out how many rolls you will need to cover your area.
What is the difference between 'Paste the Wall' and 'Paste the Paper' application?
Paste the wall, as it suggests means that you can apply the wallpaper paste directly to the wall and then stick the wallpaper on. Paste the wall application saves time.
Paste the paper, requires you to paste the back of the wallpaper and allow the paste to soak into the wallpaper for approx 3mins before application to the wall.
Do I require wallpaper paste and where can I get this?
Yes, you will require wallpaper paste for all of our wallpapers. We do not sell any pre-pasted wallpapers.
You will find that most large Paint & Decorator centers will stock wallpaper paste. Wallpaper paste is available from 'some' Bunnings Warehouse stores.
What is a pattern match?
The pattern match depicts where the pattern can be directly lined up across the width of two drops of wallpaper.
A straight match indicates that the pattern can only be matched on the full pattern repeat.
A half-drop match indicates that the pattern can be matched at half the pattern repeat.
An off-set match means that the pattern can be matched at a point which is not necessarily a half drop. For example the pattern repeat my be 64cm and the off-set match may be 16cm .
A free match means that the drops of wallpaper can be laid side-by-side without considering a match this is most common in stripes. When hanging wallpaper with a free match there will be no wastage.
