Wallpaper Buying Guide



Buying Wallpaper


1. Use the wallpaper chart below to help calculate the number of rolls you require

2. Purchase a sufficient number of rolls to allow for pattern matching. Use the vertical pattern repeats (a) given in the Swatch Library to calculate the amount of extra wallpaper you need to allow for pattern matching. Some designs have a half drop (HD), which means that when matching widths, alternate widths will need to be dropped by half the repeat length to match accurately

3. If shopping in store, select rolls which all carry the same batch number. Check any ordered products all have the same batch number before hanging


Hanging Wallpaper


1. For best results we recommend the use of Laura Ashley wallpaper paste. 

2. Follow the preparation and hanging instructions printed on the back of the roll label 

3. Check and inspect the wallpaper for colour compatibility or any visible issues prior to hanging and after hanging each roll as we are unable to take responsibility for third party decorating costs after hanging

4. Always keep the label and a sample of the wallpaper, as these may be useful if any queries or problems arise
