How much wallpaper do I need? How much wallpaper should I buy?
Calculating how much wallpaper you need is NOT as easy as simply finding the area of you wall and buying that much wallpaper! Because wallpaper often has a pattern that needs to be matched up, a good amount of wallpaper will go to waste in between each strip when you go to line it up. The ‘repeat’ of your wallpaper, shown as a fraction, tells you how long it takes before the pattern is repeated. This is why it is important to specify which match type your wallpaper has (no match, straight match or offset match), as well as, what the repeat of the wallpaper is, when calculating how much you'll need.
