How Much Chinoiserie Wallpaper Do I Order?

Wondering just how much Chinoiserie you need to order?

Our general rule of thumb is measure twice and print once! Being that our Chinoiserie Wallpaper is a custom item, our designers will work with you to ensure that your project fits perfectly in your space, but we need your help!

When it comes time to place your order, it’s important to understand that the amount needed will be based on the measurements of the space or spaces you are looking to cover, and that those measurements will come from you. These dimensions can be for a wall, a full room, or framed panels, and you will need to write down measurements for each separately.
