To determine how much paint you'll need for your project, follow the steps outlined below or use the handy paint calculator on behr.com.
To estimate the size of the wall area, first measure the perimeter of the entire room. Next, measure the height of your wall. Multiply the perimeter measurement by the height of the room.
Subtract the doors and windows from your measurement. For reference, an average window is 1.4 m2 (15 sq ft) and the average door is 1.9 m2 (20 sq ft).
For trim, measure the total length of trim for all expanses: baseboard, door, window and molding. The average trim width is six inches, so multiply your trim length by 0.15 m (0.5 feet) to get a square footage estimate for trim.
If you are painting the ceiling along with your walls, follow these simple steps and add the ceiling size to your total room square footage. First measure the room's width then the room's length. Multiply the width and the length measurements to determine the total ceiling area.
