Wallpapering Information and Tips

Why Wallpaper

Paint vs. Wallpaper
Cost Analysis by Canada Wallcoverings Corp.

While few people would debate the aesthetic excellence of wallpaper and borders over paint, some might be surprised to learn that, over time, vinyl wallcoverings are also a wise economical choice. According to the latest Hite Report, developed for The Bell Systems by Jim Hite, lifecycle analysis shows that wallcoverings now last five times longer than paint, under normal usage conditions. Most vinyl wallcoverings can retain their original beauty and performance characteristics for at least 15 years, whereas a painted surface must be cleaned more frequently to maintain its appearance, and generally requires repainting approximately every three years.While the initial investment is higher, choosing vinyl wallcovering over paint can result in a savings of 30% or more over time.

Wallcovering Estimator

Estimation Example
20′ + 20′ + 15′ + 15′ = 70′ room circumference
70′ x 8′ ceiling height = 560 sq. feet
560 / 25 = 22.4 single rolls
23 single rolls is how much to order

Special circumstances (cathedral ceilings, stairways, etc.) will need a professional estimate. Exact estimates can be obtained from where you intend to purchase your wallpaper, or if a professional will be doing the installation, they will provide this service.

The first thing you need is an accurate measurement of the walls that are to be covered. Use a yardstick or steel tape measure. Measure in feet rounding up to the next half or whole foot. Below is a diagram showing a generic room to illustrate how this estimation takes place. First, add together the length of every wall that will be covered then, multiply this number by your ceiling height.
