How to calculate the number of drops to cover a wall
 You will need to measure the width of the wall and divide it by the width of the wallpaper. In this example Jasper Peony is 135cm wide.

So to cover a wall measuring 450cm wide you will need to divide 450cm by 135cm.
450 ÷ 135 = 3.34 then round this up to the nearest figure ie.4  Therefore 4 drops of wallpaper are needed to cover this wall.

Number of repeats per drop of wallpaper
 You will need to measure the height of the wall and divide it by the vertical repeat of the wallpaper.
 In the example below the wall is 248cm high and Jasper Peony wallpaper has a vertical repeat of 104.5cm.
 To calculate the number of repeats per drop of wallpaper you will need to divide 248cm by 104.5cm.
 So the number of repeats needed per drop will be 248 ÷ 104.5cm = 2.38.
 If the design is a half drop repeat you will need to round up this figure to the nearest half of a repeat ie. 2.5 in the example above. However if the number of repeats came to 2.78 you would round this figure up to 3.
 If the design is a straight repeat you will need to round this up to the nearest round number ie. 3.

Final drop length
 To calculate the final drop length you will need to multiply the number of repeats by the vertical repeat of the design.
 So in this example the drop lengths you will need to cut will be 2.5 × 104.5 = 261.25 (262cm)

Final meterage per wall
 To calculate the final meterage for the wall you will need to multiply the number of drops (step 1) by the final drop length (step 3).
 So in this example the final meterage to cover the wall will be 4 drops × 262cm = 10.48 metres.

How to estimate for a whole room
 Imagine the room flatpacked as in the diagram, ignoring doors and windows (unless very large picture windows)
 In the diagram there are 4 walls making a total of 15.94m (4.5 metres × 2 + 3.47 metres × 2)
 Therefore divide 15.94m by 135cm (width of paper) = 11.81 rounded up to 12 drops required to paper this room.
 So in this example the final metreage to cover all 4 walls will be 12 drops × 262cm = 31.44 metres.

Extra tips
 We recommend ordering one extra repeat to allow for choice in positioning the design on the wall.
 We also recommand adding one extra drop (or two if a large job) to allow for accident and error.

When hanging HALF DROP wallpapers you can economise by changing the order in which you cut the drops.
 When rounding up number of repeats in a drop to a half number e.g. 2.5, 3.5 you will cut the drops for a room IN SEQUENCE 1,2,3,4 etc.
 When round up number of repeats in a drop to a round number e.g. 3, 4, 5 it is more economical to cut drops ALTERNATELY i.e. 1,3,5,7 followed by 2,4,6,8 ...
