**Calculating how much paint to buy** requires specific calculations for each surface you want to paint. Before you begin painting your home’s interior walls, ceiling, woodwork, doors, or windows, you will need to calculate the amount of paint you will use.

To calculate the amount of paint you need in order to cover the walls of a room, add together the length of all walls then multiply that number by the height of the room, from floor to ceiling. The number you arrive at is the room’s square footage.

Now you have to determine how much of that square footage is paintable surface area. The doors and windows will require a different paint so subtract those areas from the room total or approximately 20 square feet for each door and 15 square feet for each average-sized window in the room. You will end up with a number that is close to the actual wall area.
