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 am super happy with my finished product! It really is the item that "made" my office remodel super cool! I appreciate the way the staff made multiple revisions & was more than happy to make changes multiple times until I got everything just the way I wanted it. Mine was a very detailed motivational quote project that covered an entire wall. They did a FABULOUS job! I found that a job like mine was definitely one for an installer & I am thankful I hired one of their approved installers, who did a great job too. I think this product will stick to most surfaces, but did find out that in areas with humidity like where I am located, it is best to use a separate primer with a semi-gloss paint if you are applying it to a painted wall. Hope that helps some of you that might have this same type of environment & surface for application.” (06/30/15)

“Our wall quote turned out awesome! The process was easy, they worked with me to insure I would receive exactly what we wanted. The installation was simple and the directions are great. Now every client that comes into the office sees just some of the key words related to our Qt cross platform application and framework. Thank you!!!” (06/26/15)
