Determining Pattern Repeat

Pattern repeat is the distance between 2 matching design elements on a roll of wallpaper. This distance helps determine how many rolls you will need.

 

Example: Assuming a room of 380 square feet:

 

- No Repeat: 380 sq ft./25 sq ft of usable wallpaper = 15.2
Be sure to round this up to 16 Rolls (8 Double Rolls)

 

- Small Repeat: 380 sq ft./22 sq ft of usable wallpaper = 17.27
Be sure to round this up to 18 Rolls (9 Double Rolls)

 

- Large Repeat: 380 sq ft./18 sq ft of usable wallpaper = 21.1
Be sure to round this up to 22 Rolls (11 Double Rolls)
