### How the Calculation Works

The calculator determines the total cost based on the following steps:

- It calculates the total wall area by taking into account the length, width, and height of the area. It assumes that paint is only required on the walls and not on the floor or ceiling.
- Then, it subtracts the area occupied by doors and windows based on average door and window sizes.
- Finally, it multiplies the effective area to be painted by the painting cost per square foot to give the total cost.

### Limitations of This Calculator

While this calculator provides a rough estimate, there are some limitations to be aware of:

- Actual door and window sizes may vary. This calculator uses standard average sizes for simplicity.
- Additional factors such as paint quality, wall conditions, and local labor costs are not considered.
- It assumes uniform painting areas and doesn’t account for complex shapes or multiple coats of paint.
