On average, paint spreading rate is 11 square meters per coat per litre used for interior ceiling and wall painting.

**How to calculate paint quantity for ceiling of the room**

To calculate the required paint quantity for ceiling of house, simply measure the length and width of the floor area of the room, divide the total area by spreading rate 11m2 per litre, and multiply the two measurements, then you get total required quantity of paint in litres for 2 coats.

For example: if the room is 4 metres wide, and 6 metres long, 4 x 6 = 24 square metres. 24m2 divided by 11 = 2.18 litres, 2 coats will be required, so you will need enough 2.18×2 = 4.36 litres of paint to cover 48 square metres in total.

**The amount of paint required for ceiling are:**

1) Surface area: 24 square metres.

2) Divided by. Spreading rate: 11 square metres per litre.

3) Multiplied by. Number of coats: 2 coats.

4) Equals. 24/11 x 2 = 4.36 litres.

**How to calculate paint quantity for wall of the room**

To calculate the required paint quantity for wall of room, simply measure the length and height of the wall, and multiply the two measurements. Divide the total area of wall by spreading rate 11m2 per litre, and multiply the two measurements, then you get total required quantity of paint in litres for 2 coats.

For example: if the wall is 4 metres length, and 2.5 metres height, 4 x 2.5 = 10 square metres. 10m2 divided by 11 = 0.90 litres, 2 coats will be required, so you will need enough 0.90× 2 = 1.8 litres of paint to cover 20 square metres in total.

**The amount of paint required for wall are:**

1) Surface area: 10 square metres.

2) Divided by. Spreading rate: 11 square metres per litre.

3) Multiplied by. Number of coats: 2 coats.

4) Equals. 10/11 x 2 = 1.8 litres.

**How to calculate paint quantity for room**

To calculate paint quantity for room, simply measure the length of all 4 walls of the room, and add them together. Then, measure the height of the room, and multiply height and total length of the walls to get total surface area of room. Add ceiling area. Subtract your opening area windows and door from total, this will give total painting area. Divide the total area of room by spreading rate 11m2 per litre, and multiply the two measurements, then you get total required quantity of paint in litres for 2 coats.

For example: if the room is 4 metres wide, and 5 metres long the total measurement of wall of room will be 18 metres. Multiply this by the height of the room, say 2.5 metres, 18 x 2.5 = 45 square metres. Add ceiling area 4 × 5 = 20m2, 20 + 45 = 65m2, subtract window area = 1m2, door area = 2m3, then total painting area = 65 – (1+2) = 62 square meters. 2 coats will be required, so you will need enough 11 litres of paint to cover 124 square metres.

**Q1) How much paint is required to paint a 4m x 3m room**

**The amount of paint required for 4m x 3m room are:**

1) Says height of room = 2.5 meters

2) Total length of wall = 4+4+3+3 = 14 metres

3) Walls surface area = 14 × 2.5 = 35m2

4) Celing area = 4×5 = 20m2

5) Total surface area of room = 35 + 20= 55m2

6) Suppose total opening = 3m2

7) Subtract opening area = 55 – 3 = 52m2

8) Total painting area for 2 coats = 52 × 2 = 104m2

9) Divided by. Spreading rate: 11 square metres per litre.

10) Required paint = 104/ 11 = 9.45 litres

You will need approximately 9.45 litres of the paint for 4m x 3m room to cover 104 square meters area for 2 coats.
