What is the length of a roll of wallpaper?

How long is a roll of border?
Almost all of our wallpaper borders are 15 feet in length. If the border contains more or less footage, this will be noted on our site in the item’s product description.
How much wallpaper will my project take?
Wallpaper is normally calculated in square footage. You will need to take the length of a wall and multiply it by the height of the wall to get the square footage of that wall. Measure all areas of your room and determine the square footage. You will then divide this number by 25 to determine the number of single rolls of wallpaper that you will need.
Why does wallpaper come packaged in a double roll?
Wallpaper comes in different lengths and widths and, although usually priced by the single roll, it is packaged either as double or triple rolls. People may find this packaging versus pricing situation hard to understand. However, wallpaper is packaged this way because double and triple rolls provide more usable wallpaper than single rolls. In addition, extra wallpaper allows for a margin of error during hanging, will help avoid the problem of finding the same dye lot or printing run when reordering to complete a project, or if the wallpaper on the wall has been damaged and needs repair.
Is your wallpaper pre-pasted?
Most of our wallpapers are pre-pasted and you only need to add water to adhere them to the wall. Complete instructions will be shipped with your wallpaper and we recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s hanging instructions for the best results.
Is your wallpaper vinyl?
Almost all wallpapers made today are vinyl coated. This means that the wallpaper is made of a paper substrate and then treated, or coated, with a vinyl or acrylic type vinyl. These wallpapers are classified as scrubbable and strippable and are suitable for most areas. Please refer to individual manufacturer’s specifications of their products.
How do I find the type of pattern that I need?
