Hi Viola: Here is a site that should help you out: https://www.wallpaperdirect.com/us/wallpaper-calculator. If you are using a paper that has a pattern that needs to be matched, be sure to get extra paper. Good luck
From the top to the bottom. Wallpaper is a standard width so you will need to also measure the width of your wall. If you are using a wall paper with a continuous design you must also make allowens for wastage to match the pattern
I always measured the square footage as well as each wall. When I measure a wall, I consider how many drops it will take to cover it. Make sure to take repeat pattern into consideration. The larger the repeat, the more waste you will have when matching the drop to the piece you just hung.
Hi ! For each wall you are planning on papering measure from top to bottom then across , multiple the numbers to give you the square foot measurement . For example if the wall from floor to ceiling is 8 feet high and wall is 10 feet wide , you would figure , 8x10=80 , so you need to buy enough to cover 80 square feet . If the
Wall is not flat , like if there was an alcove , measure those separately and add those measurements to the bigger wall measurements . Also it is always better to have too much wallpaper , then not enough . You can't always buy more , and have it match exactly , if it is from another printing . And , also know , that if the paper is patterned , that you need to match piece to piece , you need to allow extra footage for that as well . Good luck !

I see many answers here that explain the square footage calculation. What I don't see is the overage calculation. Most flooring and wall products give you a waste measurement somewhere in the fine print of the packaging. Some patterns will suggest 20% waste. Once you have your basic square footage, multiply it by the waste factor. If you have 100 sf of wall and you are using a wallpaper with 20 percent waste, then multiply your sf*1.2. (100*1.2=120 sf wallpaper needed)
