Find out how much paint I need

Tell me, how much paint do I need?

A simple calculation:

First, you calculate how many m² you'll be painting: length x width in meters of the wall, ceiling, etc.
Next, multiply this amount of m² with the paint's coverage capacity (mentioned on the technical data sheet in m²/l) and with the number of layers you'll need to apply.

Ummm... how do I know the paint coverage? 

For wall and ceiling paints the average coverage is 8 to 10 m²/l per layer.

For lacquers the average coverage is 12 to 15 m²/l per layer.

To be 100% sure you're calculating with the correct coverage, you can always check the paint's technical data sheet, which you can find on the product page. 

"Ugh, I don't like calculations..."

No problem at all! There's a very handy tool on our product pages that will do the math for you. Take a look at the video (in Dutch) below to see how that works.
