Measure & Cut Wallpaper

  • Measure the height of your wall and add 4 inches for overhang. You need an extra 2 inches at the top and bottom for trimming.
  • Use a sharp knife or blade to cut your wallpaper, running the blade along a hard edge as a guide.
  • Before cutting additional strips, ensure that you account for your wallpaper’s "match". Depending on the "match", you may need to account for the wallpaper's repeat when cutting your next strip.
