# Recommendations on how to calculate the amount of wallpaper – do repairs correctly!

To pokleit wallpaper on the walls without any extra cost, you need to use a building tool to measure the area of your Steinway This helps roulette, but the type of wallpaper must be taken into consideration. Wallpaper with a pattern, paper, vinyl, fabric wallpaper, they all have a feature length and width, as well as gluing the walls, so the calculation should be carried out taking into account all factors, not just the size of the room. There are several options for calculating the required amount of wallpaper on the room.

To accurately calculate the necessary amount of wallpaper on the room, you need to use a construction tape measure, measure the perimeter of the walls without doorways, given the distance above and below the windows.

## How to calculate the wallpaper on the room walls

Number of wallpaper can be calculated correctly, knowing the perimeter pasted over the room. Perimeter is the sum of all parties, and thus the perimeter of the room, is the sum of all sides in length. How do I get this number? In order to measure the perimeter of the building will need a tape measure. Length of all rooms should be measured with a tape measure, it turns 4 walls, 2 walls will be of the same length, the remaining 2 walls will have a different length. Let's consider the example of the walls, whose perimeter is 4x2. Two walls have a length of 4 m 2 and a wall having a length of 2 meters. The formula is: 4x2 + 2x2 = 12 meters of the perimeter of the room.

**That's not all, then you must:**

- Know the height of the walls;
- Calculate how many strips of wallpaper out of a single roll of wallpaper;
- Calculate the number of required strips of wallpaper for the room;
- Calculate the number of rolls of wallpaper needed.

Knowing the perimeter of the room, you can calculate the required amount of wallpaper

The height of the walls of the room is also measured as well as its width, with a tape measure, tape measure weighs a bit, to measure very convenient. The standard height of the walls in homes and apartments of 2.5-3 meters. To find out how many strips of wallpaper out of a single roll of wallpaper, you must divide the height of the walls of wallpaper on the length of a roll, but you need to know how many meters in one roll of wallpaper. If a standard roll of wallpaper, it has a length of 10 meters, if the height of our walls 2,5 m, the calculation formula is as follows: 10: 2.5 = 4. It turned out that the 4 bands out of a single roll of wallpaper. After a number of bands from a roll of wallpaper has been calculated, you can count the number of bands required for a given room wallpaper from a selected roll. To do this, measure the width of a roll of wallpaper and share it on the perimeter of the room.

Under standard wallpaper with a width of 53 cm and at 12 meters pasted over the perimeter of the room as an example, such a formula is obtained: 12: 23 = 0.53, rounded, which means that room 23 will need a gluing strips of wallpaper.

And the last step is to calculate the necessary amount of wallpaper on the room. The required number of strips for the room to be divided by the number of strips in a roll according to the formula: 23: 6 = 4, is rounded. It turns out that for a room area of 4x2 meters 6 rolls of wallpaper you will need to reserve.

Provides an approximate calculation, as every room and a room in it, may have a different height, width, swings, so it is accurately and carefully do the calculations, taking into account the possible irregularities of the walls and ceiling.

## How to make a calculation of the wallpaper of the room area

There is one sure way to calculate the number of required wallpaper on the room is a calculation of the floor area.

**To carry out this calculation it is necessary to measure the entire area of the room and its wall around the perimeter of the following:**

- Measure the length, width and height of the wall surfaces;
- The length and width of walls fold and multiplied by 2, since in a building on the same wall 2 and multiply by the height of the wall;
- Roll width multiplied by length.

After making measurements of the room area can be considered as the required amount of wallpaper for stick. In Example room area 4x2 m, possible to make the calculation formula of wallpaper, 2 (4 + 2) x 2.5 = 30 m2, obtained pasted over area. Next, you need to calculate how many square seal the one roll. On a standard roll of example, we get the formula: 0.53 m (standard roll width) 10 m (standard roll length) = 5.3 m2. A standard roll of wallpaper in width and length, it is possible to stick to 5.3 m2 wall. The last step is to correctly calculate the required number of rolls of wallpaper on the room 4x2 meters, need to surface area divided by the area of the roll of wallpaper, for example, 30: 5 = 6. For room wallpaper pasting area of 4x2 m, and 2.5 m in height, it needs 6 rolls of wallpaper. As a result of the first measurement, and the results of the measurement of the area of the room, out 6 rolls of wallpaper.

Wallpaper is always better to take a small margin, even if accurately calculate the area of a room

Calculations based on a very accurate formula, extra wallpaper, as well as the lack of them does not work, but in the calculation, it is necessary to consider features of the room, which are glued to the wallpaper.

Better to take the wallpaper with a small margin, to be able to restore the wall in the case of wallpaper damage than to look for similar wallpapers, which you can not find, once the segment is always useful.

## Calculation of wallpaper pattern

The most complex calculations required wallpaper on the room is the calculation of the wallpaper with a pattern, it is difficult that the image must be selected in the course of which produces a lot of waste. If the walls are slant, uneven corners or observed Elevation walls, there may be differences in the figure. Proper Wallpapering with a pattern precisely adjust ornament, provide a good view of the room, with no defects.

An important factor is how wallpapering. Wallpaper patterned only glued joint to joint to achieve orchestration pattern.

To properly pick up the required amount of wallpaper with a picture of the room, above all, we should focus on the rapport on the allowable distance between the picture elements. This figure for each type of wallpaper, and drawing on them individually. The wallpaper with floral ornament rapport less, and on the wallpaper with geometric shapes and lines, rapport is always more. Consumption wallpaper with geometric lines will be larger than with floral patterns.

If kleite wallpaper with a pattern, you need to take 2 or 3 rolls over**On each roll of wallpaper, which require the selection process of gluing, precise version Set repeat:**

- Geometry - above 50 mm;
- Floral print - 50 mm;
- Abstraction - 10-50 mm rapport.

Calculated required amount of wallpaper with a pattern width pasted on its surface area, as well as the selection of conventional wallpapers. The only feature is the indicator of rapport on a roll. Large figure rapport leads to the fact that you have to buy 2 or more rolls of more than ordinary wallpaper without pattern, and balances will be many.

Before you choose for your home wallpaper to a picture, you need to calculate the papered area, the number of required wallpaper and the price to be profitable for the price? Waste from the wallpaper with a pattern very difficult to choose the slope places, openings and they are almost never in a fit.
