Amount of paint for painting walls, ceilings, doors and windows

Amount of paint for painting walls, ceilings, doors and windows
It’s better to overestimate the amount of paint than underestimate it. You can always keep leftover paint for while for re use. The most common way to determine the amount of paint is to first determine the paint area. You can do this by simply multiplying the height and the width of the walls and ceilings. If you intend to paint windows that have a lot of accoutrements like bars, then treat window space the same as wall space.
For surfaces that are not flat and are moulded like doors, increase the paint estimate by 25% or so. Once you have determined the surface area, it’s a cinch to pick up the right paint amount because paint cans have the approximate surface are that each tin will cover on their side. Since this actually depends a lot on your painting style , try out one can first to get a feel of whether you need more or less.
