Our reader from New Jersey, Sofia, asked us how many liters it will take to paint a room.

Put the “Absolute” Color for 2021 in Different Parts of the House! Let’s start! First let us tell you how we will talk about the interior painting of the house. The exterior requires a specialist, so it is best not to experiment there.

### Take a pencil and paper and do your calculations

You must first calculate the area of ​​the walls of the room in square meters (cm2). How do you do that? Measure the perimeter of the floor and the height of the room and multiply them. The result is the area of ​​the room. But you will not want to paint the windows and doors that are in it, so you must separately remove from the total area, the square meters that they cover. Multiply the height and width of the door and windows and subtract the result from the total area. So you have found the square meters of the room that need to be painted.

Caution! Before buying the paint you should see if you will need to pass the surfaces one or two “hands”, because as you understand the amount of liters will double. You can understand this from various factors, such as the smoke on the walls and the ceiling but also from whether there are imprints of your child’s artistic concerns on the walls of the house.

There are relatively frequent losses during the painting process, especially if you are trying it for the first time, so we suggest that you get a 10% more material.
