How to calculate paint for your project.

November 2, 2017

Having an idea on how to calculate paint is a key factor to save you money time and trips to the store specially when time is limited. It’s difficult to calculate the exact amount of paint due to a few factors such us:


-new vs old

-surface texture 

-paint sheen 

-paint color

-rolling vs spraying 



When calculating paint is always a good practice to add extra square footsie or extra coating to your calculations, Having an extra paint left over will always take you a long way when it comes dow to do final touch ups in your project. 

Here is a mathematic equation for ceilings and walls.



-Wall.    Room perimeter ft X room high ft = sq ft


-Ceiling.   Ceiling width X Ceiling length = sq ft


Keep in mind that windows & doors (typically doors are 20 sq ft and windows 15 sq ft) would have to subtracted:


Window or Door sq ft - Room wall sq ft = wall free of window or door sq ft


Knowing how much sq-ft a gallon coverage (Typically a gallon covers 250 to 400 sq ft.) would simplified your calculation to determent the amount of gallons you’d need for your project so here is my gallon rule, base on a typical house rooms 


-Beth rooms


Master Beth-room 3 gallons

Average Beth-room 2 gallons


Master or large Bathrooms 2 gallons

Small Bathrooms 1 gallon


Master or large closet 2 gallons 

Small Closet 1 gallon


Average kitchen 1 gallon

Large Kitchen 2 gallons

-Living Rooms

Large living room 3 gallons

Average living room 2 gallons


Large garage 6 gallons

Small garage 4 gallons
