Wallcovering Yardage Calculator

Please be advised that this calculator is for estimating purposes only based on square footage.  With smaller areas you must consider the width of the wall covering to determine how many "drops" or panels you will need.  It is always recommended that a professional paper hanger calculate the yardage requirements. Odyssey Wallcoverings will not be held responsible for order quantity based on this calculator.

How to calculate the total lineal yards needed of wall covering

In order to help find out the total lineal yards needed of wall covering for your project, we must first determine the total footage of the walls combined. The following diagram is an example of a wall covering project requiring 3 walls to be covered.

Step 1: Calculate the height of your walls

Diagram 1a

Measure the height of the walls in feet. Unless the surface contains different heights, this measurement only needs to be taken once. See diagram 1a.

Step 2: Calculate the width of your wallsDiagram 1b

Starting with the first wall, measure the width of the wall from corner to corner. Repeat the process for the 2nd wall and the third. See diagram 1b.
