HOW MUCH PAINT DO I NEED?
Follow these steps to estimate the amount of interior paint needed to cover your walls and trim. Paint is sold in quarts, gallons and five gallon quantities.
Step 1 – Measure the length of all 4 walls in your room, and add up the lengths to get your total lineal feet. (ex. 10+10+10+10 = 40)
Step 2 – Multiply the lineal feet by the height of your walls, floor/trim to ceiling, for your total square footage. (ex. 40x10 = 400)
Step 3 – If you intend to apply more than one coat, multiply your total square feet by the number of coats (ex. 400x2 = 800)
Step 4 – The average gallon of paint covers 400 square feet, divide your total from step 3 by 400 for your total gallon need. (ex. 800/400 = 2 gallons of paint)
