Measuring The Wall



Don't for one second think that your wall isn't suitable for a stunning wall mural! At Rock Roll we like to think that anything is possible. See our guide to measuring your wall type below. If you have an unusually shaped wall that isn't listed below, get in touch and we'll help.


Measure the full width of your wall from edge to edge and measure the height of both the right and left sides of your wall. We recommend that you measure both sides as the heights of the two sides can often differ. If one side is shorter than the other, select the greater of the two heights.


Measure the width and height of the greatest lengths on your wall only, ignoring any slopes. The mural will be supplied as a full rectangle mural and the slope should be cut away during installation.


If there are any obstacles on your wall, simply measure the entire wall as you would for a full standard wall and cut away the obstacle during hanging.

Tips and Tricks

We recommend that you add an extra 5cm or 2 inches to the height and width of your mural to accommodate any variations in the height and width. Any excess can be trimmed when you hang your mural.

Check, check and check your measurements again! If you are in any doubt, add a little extra. It's easy to trim your mural.

Ideally, use a tape measure that is long enough to measure the entire wall.

If you don't want to fill your entire wall, you can order a wall mural to cover only part of it.
