Here's the number of rolls you'll need to wallpaper your room. Remember that this is only an estimate: you may need more or less depending on the number of cuts and corners you need to make, the intricacy of the pattern, and how much paper is damaged during installation. (It happens!) You'll need to know if the wallpaper you're buying is American or European, since European rolls are smaller and each roll covers fewer square feet than American rolls. It's a good idea to bring a diagram of your room with you to the store to confirm your calculations with a pro.
