To calculate paint needed, you'll need one gallon for 450 square feet. To determine the wall area, multiply the height of each wall by its width (don't subtract for doors and windows unless they take up more than half the wall); total the figures for the walls. Add 10 percent for future touch-ups. For two coats, double the number.

    ONE GALLON OF PAINT COVERS 350 SQUARE FEET.....EASIER CALCULATION......ADD THE LENGTH OF ALL WALLS TIMES THAT BY HEIGHT....EXAMPLE 10 x 8 room 10+10+8+8=36 x 8 (height of wall floor to ceiling) = 288 sq.ft.
