• Measure width

    Measure the width of the wall. Repeat measurement on the highest and the lowest point as well to check if measures differ. If they do, use the largest measurement.

  • Measure height

    Measure the height of the wall from the floor to the ceiling. Repeat measurement on the left and the right point as well to check if measures differ. If they do, use the largest measurement.


Why do I need to measure my wall?

Dreamhood Wallpapers are made to measure, meaning your wallpapers design will be adjusted to fit your wall measures perfectly. Also, your measurements are used to calculate the price.

How precise do I need to measure?

We advise staying within a tolerance of approximately 1cm. If in doubt, use the larger measurement. Our team will add an extra few cm to your measurements to compensate for potential wall imperfections or installation inaccuracies, which can be trimmed off after installation.

What about slanted ceilings or windows?

If your wall has a moderately slanted ceiling, measure based on the highest point of the wall. However, if the slant angle is significant, please contact us to find the best solution for you.

Windows are included in the wall area calculation. In rare cases where windows occupy a large portion of the wall (e.g., double glass doors with a slight wall overhang on top), we can print only a partial section of the wall to reduce waste. In such cases, it's best to consult with our team before ordering.

For wallpaper installation, slanted ceilings and windows do not pose any installation problems. However, be aware that they might disrupt certain motifs on the wallpaper. To avoid unforeseen scenarios, we recommend using our free visualization feature to get an exact idea of how the installed wallpaper will look.

What about electrical outlets and switches?

Usually, small objects like electrical outlets or light switches can be disregarded as the wallpaper can easily be trimmed around them. However, to ensure they don't cover any important wallpaper motifs, you can consult with us and request a free visualization.
