How much paint will I need?

Jamie from Adelaide’s Pridal Services has had many years experience in painting people’s homes.

Obviously some homes are smaller than others, rooms can vary in size and decorative detail, like cornices and ceiling roses, for example.

When painting commercial properties or hotels, discretion is required to calculate the amount of paint needed. Jamie and his experienced Adelaide painting team have many years experience, and can help you make the right choice.


Calculating Paint Quantities.

In most cases when painting two rooms of a house, Jamie suggests 1 can (10L) is often sufficient for two coats of paint. However the quality of paint used, the amount of coats needed and the area of each room could largely fluctuate this estimate.
