Use this tool to quickly calculate the amount of paint you need for your room.

## Room Paint Calculator

Use this calculator to estimate the amount of paint you will need to paint a room. Fill in the dimensions of your room, the number of windows and doors, and the paint coverage per gallon. The calculator will provide you with the estimated amount of paint required.

### How to Use

- Enter the length, width, and height of the room in feet.
- Enter the number of windows and doors in the room.
- Enter the paint coverage per gallon (usually found on the paint can).
- Enter the number of coats of paint you plan to apply.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the result.

### How It Calculates

The calculator estimates the wall area based on the dimensions you provide. It subtracts the area occupied by windows and doors and then calculates the total paintable surface. The total area is then divided by the paint coverage per gallon to give you the estimated amount of paint needed.

### Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate and may not be accurate in all situations. For example, it assumes standard sizes for windows and doors and does not account for surface texture or paint absorption differences. Always consult with a professional painter for precise measurements and calculations.
