Use this handy paint calculator to work out how much paint you’ll need for your walls.
Enter the dimensions of your wall in m2 then select the number of doors and windows in the room. Select the number of coats you require and click calculate to find out how many litres of paint you will need.
Check out this handy wallpaper calculator. Remember, if you are using patterned wallpaper allow 10% extra for pattern matching ( based on the average pattern repeat). Please note the quantity shown is an estimate calculated on a standard room layout.
