1. HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR WALL AREA:
For each wall to be painted, multiply the length of each wall by its floortoceiling height.
After calculating the square meterage of each wall, add them up to determine the total area needing to be painted.
For convenience you may round off the distance to the nearest whole number if the wall does not measure evenly in meters, eg 3,4m to 3m


2. ADJUSTING FOR DOORS AND WINDOWS:
It is not usually necessary to deduct the square meters taken up by doors and windows in the average wall when estimating the amount of pint that you will need. However, the exception is walls with oversized openings or with several doors and windows. In such cases, multiply the length of the opening by its width, then subtract that number from the total square
meters of the wall.
