Once you have made a decision on which wall you want to add your mural, you need to decide what proportion of that wall you wish to cover. Your mural may cover your whole wall or just part of it.
Remember, that a full wall mural provides real impact helping you transform a space at home, office or other location with a dramatic image or relaxing scene. You can get an idea of how your mural may look on a wall by Asking us for a proof Image.
Make Your Measurements
If you are choosing a smaller mural that’s not the full size of your wall, simply decide on the measurements you want and enter those into our website when you make your selection. We recommend that you add an extra 3cm to 5cm on height and width measurements to accommodate any variations in wall length & width.
Width: Measure the horizontal distance of the wall from corner to corner
Height: We recommend that you measure the vertical height at each end of the wall as most walls are never quite identical in height all the way along. If different, select the greater of the two heights.
Please Note: We recommend that you add an extra 3cm to 5cm on height and width measurements to accommodate any variations in wall length & width. Any excess can simply be trimmed on installation.
Tip 1: If you are in any doubt add a little extra as mentioned above. It is easy enough to trim away a small amount on each edge and this shouldn’t really affect the overall impact of your wall mural.
Tip 2: Do use a tape measure rather than a ruler, by which you need to add up the various measurements. This way you’ll avoid potential mistakes.
Tip 3: Repeat the measuring process so you can be absolutely sure you’ve got the right measurements. The more times you measure, the better!

Unusual Shaped Walls
Our murals can look great on unusually shaped walls, so don’t for one moment think that a mural won’t work there! Simply measure the highest and widest points on your wall and use these measurements. You can easily trim away unwanted paper when applying your mural or wallpaper so it's a good idea to add a bit extra to your measurements when ordering. The main consideration is simply to make sure that you account for the area that you would be cropping away when making your purchase.
