Two Runs Are Not Fun

When I first consulted with this client, she had already bought some wallpaper – but she did not have enough to cover her wall. (Note to homeowners – always have the space measured by a professional before you order your paper.) So she ordered more – but the new paper that arrived was from a run different from what she already had.

“Run” or “batch” numbers refer to when a batch of wallpaper was printed. Wallpaper printed at different times, and of different runs, will be slightly different in color.

This slight color difference is what you see in the second photo, the thin strip at the left of the pic. Even if the difference is minute, full length strips side-by-side on the same wall can be quite noticeable.

So, if you find yourself stuck with having to use different runs of wallpaper, you can disguise the color difference by “breaking” the runs in a corner…Because light hits the walls differently from one wall to the next, you won’t notice a slight color difference when the two different runs are on two different walls. However, it takes a bit more paper to do this. So, if you are dealing with two different runs, be sure to order one or two extra double-rolls of paper.
