How to Order Wallpaper
Here are some tips to help you choose the best paper for your space, and order the proper amount:
DO A COLOR TEST
I recommend seeing the color of your paper in person before placing your order, as computer monitors may not give an accurate representation. I offer up to 5 complimentary 8x10" samples to help you choose the best paper for your space. Larger samples are available upon request for a fee.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
I advise working with a certified member of the Wallpaper Hangers Association to ensure superior craftsmanship of your installation. Wallpaper is sold by the single roll. However, it is packaged and shipped in continuous yardage, with up to 50 yards on a bolt. As these designs have a very large repeat, square footage is not generally a good indicator of how much wallpaper you will need for your project. Calculating the roll count is part of the service that a professional installer provides, and they should be able to calculate this information for you using the product information provided for each design.
Your wallpaper will arrive untrimmed. This means that your installer will need to trim the selvage edges off of the sides of the wallpaper prior to installing. Untrimmed wallpaper allows for a perfect pattern match and installation, and prevents any likelihood of any roll-end damage during delivery or handling. Many high-quality wallpapers are provided untrimmed, but it is always a good idea to ask your installer if they have experience with untrimmed wallpapers.
