Measuring tips (full wall)

Width - measure the horizontal distance from corner to corner.

Height- we recommend that you measure the vertical height at each corner as walls are never perfectly square. If different, select the greater of the two height measurements.

Measuring tips (partial wall)

Submit your exact measurements of your desired mural space.

Note: we create all custom size murals based on the specific dimensions that you provide (+/- 1-2%). To allow for slightly uneven wall dimensions please add an extra inch of bleed to the height and width of your mural. This extra material can be easily trimmed away with a sharp utility knife, once the mural application is complete. We add extra material to each panel for trimming, so you don't have to worry about the panel size.

Useful Tips

Tip 1:     If you are in any doubt add a little extra. 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!
