A question that comes up quite often when working with any wall product is: what size should I get?

Figuring out the appropriate size for wall decals can be quite challenging, especially when the dimensions of the wall itself remain a question. Since there are no official standard dimensions for walls, the best way to tackle the issue is to measure the space where the decal is being applied.

That is why we decided to put together a blog post on how to properly measure your space. So get your ruler or measuring tape out and let’s get this party started!

The first and most important step is understanding what we are measuring. Height and width are the two dimensions we deal with on 2 dimensional objects such as wall decals and wall murals. So to make it crystal clear:

Height – is the dimension measured from top to bottom or vertically.

Width – is the dimension measured from left to right or horizontally.

The second step is to make sure we are measuring it correctly, always keeping the ruler/ measuring tape straight across the space.

The third step is to evaluate how much of the space we are looking to utilize. Sometimes covering the whole wall is not the best option since it can look overbearing in some rooms, especially if there are already other accent pieces on the walls.  Half, one third, a quarter, 20% are great references we can use to make a judgment of how much of the area will be dedicated to the wall product.

The last step is optional: getting a second opinion. If there is still doubt, getting a second opinion from a friend, family member or, even better, a design professional will do the trick. If you need any wall décor assistance, you can call us directly at 1-877-693-3944 and one of our representatives will be glad to answer any of your questions.

“I'm extremely happy to have finally received my Angel Wings mirror. As a first time customer It was a little frustrating waiting almost 8 weeks for the mirror but I understand now the process involved for shipment and customs to clear etc. I have provided pictures of the mirror i've set up in my home and it looks absolutely stunning. Thank you to Paula for keeping me updated when querying about the status of the purchase, she was very patient and professional. Delighted and happy customer all the way from South Africa, :-)” (09/30/17)

“I have not enough words to appreciate the good and almost 100% job you had done for me, it could not be possible done better. Besides, you I have had contact so man of companies who supposiposily to that kind of job or even tiles, with pictures on, were able to do what you did. Only one company besides you offered to do it but all in brown, no yellow, as my original tiles are, only a little more yellow than the old one but because yours are new and the original are 40 years old in my home, no idea how old really are these tiles. looking on the wall not body can not KNOW it are decals and not tiles. It came so real that if I do not tell people it are DECALS they only have asked me that they are new when they say the old original tiles that a little more beige and white that the decals, which looks new not decals.” (09/29/17)
