I ordered a couple samples prior to my purchase which really help me choose the right wallpaper. The samples gave me an idea of how the vinyl would stick to my wall. Also, having received samples of both the full scale and small scale of the overall pattern helped me get a visual of how my kitchen would turn out once applied to the wall. Beautiful wallpaper! The install was much easier than anticipated. I would not hesitate to buy from CostaCover again for future projects!
