Calculating Paint Quantities

If you’d like to work out how much paint is needed to paint a wall or specific space, the table below lists the maximum coverage of our paint finishes. Simply calculate the area of the surface you’re painting - remember to account for windows, alcoves etc – and then use the table to find out the amount of paint needed.

The figures below are dependent on one coat. However, coverage, and so the number of coats you need to do, depends on thickness of application, the condition of the surface you’re painting and whether you’re making a dramatic change

For the best finish and unrivaled depth of colour, we recommend one coat of Primer & Undercoat followed by two coats of topcoat.
