Measure Your Walls Before Ordering
First things first, let's talk about measuring your walls. It's important to measure accurately to ensure that you purchase the correct amount of peel and stick wallpaper and avoid any wastage. To get started, measure the height and width of each wall that you'll be covering with the wallpaper. If the walls are not perfectly square or rectangular, measure the height and width at different points and take note of any deviations. You'll then want to add a few inches to your measurements to account for any errors or discrepancies. This will give you the amount of removable wallpaper you'll need to cover each wall.
Ordering Your Wallpaper
Now that you have your measurements, it's time to order your peel and stick wallpaper from Loomwell. Make sure to order enough wallpaper to cover all the walls you measured, plus a little extra to account for any mistakes or misalignments. Loomwell offers a wide range of peel and stick wallpaper options to suit any style and taste, so take some time to browse our collections and find the perfect match for your space. One of our new favorites is our Oakley Wallpaper by Juniper Row!
How to Measure Angled Walls
If you have angled or curved walls, measuring is a bit different. Start by measuring the maximum width and the maximum height of the wall. Then, measure the wall height in segments based on the width of your wallpaper roll. At Loomwell, you can order your peel and stick wallpaper in a variety of sizes, but for this example, let's assume you have a roll that is two feet wide. You would measure the height of the angled wall every two feet to figure out what panels can be shorter to save you time and money.
When your wallpaper arrives, it's time to start cutting. Lay out your wallpaper on a clean, flat surface and measure out the length you need for your first strip. Use a straight edge or ruler to mark the length on the back of the wallpaper, then use a sharp utility knife or scissors to cut along the line. It's important to use a sharp blade to ensure a clean and precise cut.
Tricky Corners or Obstacles
If you're dealing with tricky corners or obstacles, don't be afraid to trim the wallpaper as needed. Use a sharp utility knife or scissors to carefully cut around the obstacle, then smooth out the wallpaper as you go. This may take some practice, but with a little patience and a steady hand, you'll be able to achieve a seamless look.
As you work your way around the room, it's important to keep an eye on the pattern matching. This means making sure that each strip of wallpaper lines up with the previous one, so that the pattern flows seamlessly from one strip to the next. This can be a little tricky, especially if you're working with a busy pattern, so take your time and don't be afraid to ask for help if needed.
