Hi all,

Calculation
===========

1)
Wallpaper

I use following calculator;
Wallpaper Calculator
homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/THDCalcWallPaperView?metric=false&catalogId=&storeId=10051&langId=-1

Example:-
Wall 1 Length: 14 ft (including windows)
Wall 1 Height: 8 ft
Wall 2 Length: 12 ft
Wall 2 Height: 8 ft

Square Feet per roll = 56.1 sq ft
(Wallpaper size
A standard roll of wallpaper is 20.5 inches in width and just under 33ft in length.
20.5 = 1.7 ft
Total size = 1.7 x 33 = 56.1 sq ft)

Wallpaper Rolls = 4.4 rolls
Then purchase 5 rolls

2)

Example:
wickes.co.uk/invt/610094/?source=123_75
Size: 5kg

Wallpaper capacity: Hangs up to 5 rolls

So I only need one tub.

Regarding sealant.
Example:
Peel Stop Clear Binding Primer
zinsserdirect.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=1_4&products_id=26
How to calculate the quantity needed? The walls are quite smooth with few light scratches and dirty marks on it.

If use fabric wallpaper (wallpaper with textile-backing)

B.R.

You have the right approach to estimating materials. Just add 10% to each (for spoilage, waste, mistakes and extras).
