How much paint do I need to cover a room?

Posted on Nov 18, 2015 in Sissons Updates

Measure the width of each wall and then add them all together.

This is how you find the perimeter of the room, e.g. 20’+20’+12’+12’ = 64’

Then multiply the perimeter, by the height of the walls.

This is how many square feet you have to cover, e.g. 64’x 8’ = 512 sq/ft

One gallon of Sissons paint covers approximately 400-450 square feet.

Therefore this room would require about 1.5 gallons of paint to cover.

Be sure to purchase enough paint to completely cover the desired area.
