How To Us Our Paint Calculator
The only measurement you need for our calculator is the total floor square footage of the area that you will be painting. We do the baseboard, door and windowframe calculations for you!
Most homeowners have instant access to this measurement via their floor plan. If you do not, then the best way to measure the inside of your home is with a partner, corner to corner.
Here is how you calculate the square footage of a room:
Multiply the length by the width and you’ll have the square feet. Here’s a basic formula you can follow:
Length (in feet) x width (in feet) = area in sq. ft
There are three main reasons having a paint and time budget will make your project easier:
Less trips to the store
No more running back to the store for an extra can of paint!
Knowing the amount of paint you need beforehand will also make it easier for paint store employees to help you ensure you get all of the other materials you’ll need in one trip (brushes, rollers, trays, tape, etc).
Less interruption to the flow of your home
Painting often takes much longer than the average homeowner expects! We provide an honest estimate of how long your project will take. There’s nothing worse than the DIY project that never ends and leaves your home looking like a construction site.
An honest and upfront project cost
Most painting projects take significantly more paint and time than the uninitiated painter might expect.
Paint can range from $40-$90 or more per gallon, so for a larger project that can be a big impact to your budget. Having a total amount of paint needed in mind will give you a more realistic idea of project cost.
