Measuring & Ordering?
How do I measure my wall?
Measuring is easy, just measure the widest and highest points of the wall, ignoring any objects or slopes. Always add 5-10 cm / 2-4 inches to both your width and height to accommodate uneven walls.

What if my wall is an unusual shape?
Even if the shape of your wall is particularly unusual such as a vaulted wall, still just measure the highest and widest points of your wall. All of our murals are produced square or rectangle so the excess will be trimmed off.
