## Answer: multiply the perimeter of the room by the height of the walls and divide by the covering power of the paint.

Start by measuring the area to be painted. If you want to paint the walls of a room, for example, you need to multiply the perimeter of the room by the height of the walls. Do not bother to remove doors or windows, it is always better to have a little surplus if necessary. Then you can calculate the amount of paint needed. On the paint bucket is written the covering power of the paint. Generally, you can paint 12 m² with a 1 liter pot of paint, but this can vary greatly depending on the type of paint chosen. Divide the area to be painted by the hiding power of the paint can, and you will get an estimate of the number of paint cans you will need for your work. Do not forget to take into account the number of layers of paint you want: 2, at least. You too, send us your brico question
