Before buying wallpaper
Before buying, you need to calculate the right amount of material so as not to get into a situation where there is a couple of centimeters missing. Traditional wallpapers are available in standard length rolls of 10.5 m. Roll widths vary (0.5, 0.7, 1.0 m).

The standard dimensions of window openings are 1.75 × 1.6 m. This means that it is necessary to subtract 1.6 and 2.8 square meters from the total area of the hall. m, respectively.
If the repair plans provide for the combination of a living room with a kitchen or bedroom, then the area should be calculated for each room separately. Wallpaper in this case, you can use different.
