How to measure the amount of paper to order
We recommend measuring with a yardstick or steel tape measure. Make your measurements in feet and round off to the next half foot or foot. Measure the wall height from the floor to the ceiling, excluding any baseboards or moldings. Then measure the length of the wall without deducting for windows or doors (this will leave you extra wallpaper in case you may need it). Multiply the two measurements to find the surface area of the wall.
Single rolls of this paper are 15 feet long and 33 inches wide. 1 roll covers about 40 square feet. To find the number of rolls needed to cover your wall, multiply the height and the width of the wall by rounding up each length to the nearest foot. Then divide by 40.
Example: For a wall that is 10 feet 6 inches high by 9 feet 4 inches long. Round up and multiply 11 feet by 10 feet to get 110 square feet. Divide 110 by 40 and you will get 2.75. In this case you will need 4 rolls.
If the number divides out to be .5 or above, you will need to add one more roll on to be safe. If you were to get 3.4, 4 rolls would be enough, but if you get 3.5 to 4.4, you will need 5 rolls.

Wide format wallpaper installation guide
Eskayel highly recommends consultation with a professional paperhanger prior to installation.
These instructions are for our WIDE FORMAT wallpaper only.
- Wall should be prepped to a smooth, clean, and dry surface prior to installation. Wallcovering will not hide wall flaws such as: nail holes, bumps, or dirt.
- Primer sealer should be used on unpainted drywall. Use acrylic wallcovering primers: Professional Ultra Prime (PRO-977), Golden Harvest White Bite, or Allpro Ultra Prep 685. Priming provides a sound surface that wallcovering will adhere to.
It is recommended to strip down previous layer(s) of wallcovering. The wallcovering may seem to be firmly adhered to the wall, but the addition of another layer can cause adhesion failure.
- Prime over glossy paint with one of the above mentioned primers.
- Clear adhesives such as Professional Ultra Premium Heavy Duty Clear Strippable (PRO-880), Golden Harvest GH-34 Clear Stripable, and Allpro Pro-Duty 3400 provide good adhesion and allow for easier stripping when the wall covering is to be removed or replaced.
- Pastes such as Professional Heavy Duty Clear PRO-838 or Allpro Clear Hang 610 have a more aggressive adhesion and should be used for more permanent applications.
- Apply a coat of the adhesive using a 1/2″ nap paint roller. Book for 10 minutes.
- Do not use tape on imaged surface.
- table trim the selvage at the trim marks.
- Align top and adjoining edges. Smooth panels into place with a smoothing brush, starting at the center of the panel working towards the edges.
- Use a plastic smoother to push air pockets to the edges.
- Remove any and all excess paste from the paper using a lightly damp rag or sponge. Do not use a fully damp sponge as slight running may occur in heavy coverage areas. If any paste is left to dry, flaking may occur which can lead to spots from ink being pulled from the paper.
- Overlapping the seams is not recommended.
