Measuring your walls
Measuring your wall is easier than you think. All we need is the width and height of the wall at the longest and widest possible points.

How to measure

Take your measuring tape and note down the widest width and the highest point of your wall. We only need wall measurements, don’t include any skirting board or coving.

Measuring your wall is easy. Simply measure the width at the top, middle and at skirting height, whichever is the biggest add 50mm/2inch for trimming. Repeat the process when measuring the height by measuring at the left, middle and right hand side of of the wall. Whichever is the biggest add 50mm/2 inch for trimming. It is always better to have excess material to cut off, than not enough.

We know walls come in all shapes and sizes, it’s one of the reasons we love them! For tips on measuring different wall types, scroll through the sketches below and don’t forget, we’re always here if you need us.

Please note: we will always manufacture your order to the measurements you provide.
