Wallpapers are available in roll form. It is advised that wallpaper vendor should take site measurement and confirms number of rolls. Accurate wall measurement will help you to purchase exact number of wallpaper rolls. Extra wallpaper could be aesthetically re-used for a part above the doorway arch or the space in a niche in the wall near the entrance way.
