Calculate the quantity required
When it comes to succeeding in the outlay of handpainted wallpapers, measuring the walls is a critical moment.
Either of the following methods can be used: Bespoke Method and the Fast Method.
In this Ennisance adapts the chosen design to suit the client’s space and manufactures a mixture of standard and bespoke-sized panels to fit the room. This is planned by way of scale elevational drawings of the room showing the adapted design and panel-join layout. It requires that client first supplies accurate elevations and floor plans upon receipt of which Ennisance will calculate the total panel requirement. In order to creating an optimal effect and best fit to the space, please contact Ennisance for assistance.
- Client supplies drawings and detailed measurements of the room
- The design height will be adjusted to fit the ceiling height
- The height of the grass ground will be adjusted to fit the room
- The favoured sections of the design will be placed in the room according to the client’s wishes
- Manufacturing sample panels when ordering custom colorways
The Fast Method
The Fast Method is a simple straight run of design panels a little bit taller and wider than the space allows. The wallpaper is then cut on site to by the installer. To calculate the panel requirement the total width of area to cover is measured including any over-door or window surround areas. The total is divided by the width of a standard panel (90 cm) and rounded up to the nearest whole number to give the minimum number of panels to order. Off-cuts or plain sky panels can sometimes be used to paper over-door or over-window areas where these are slight.
Comparison of Methods
The Fast method must be used when ordering panels for a quick delivery. When used to order panels the process to placement of the order has fewer stages than custom orders making it noticeably faster overall. However, there can be considerable wastage during installation and only limited arrangement of the pattern for best effect is possible.
The Bespoke method requires the client to supply more accurate measurements and its additional charges make the cost higher although the low wastage makes the overall cost comparable to the Fast Method. The average lead time of a Bespoke project is longer but the pre-determined design placement make installation more straightforward and the customisation of the design to clients’ specifications makes each room more unique so it is the more usual method followed.
