We're here to help you with your next painting project. That's why we've created our Paint Calculator to help you figure out how much paint you actually need for your project. No matter how big or small the job, we've got you covered.
There's a lot to know about paint. When buying paint make sure you check the spread rate of the product, which you can find on the back of the paint can. A lower spread rate means that the coverage won’t be as thick, meaning that more coats will be needed.
As a general guide 1L of Dulux Wall, Dulux Trim or Dulux Ceiling paint covers approximately 16m squared, while 1L of Dulux Primer will cover approximately 14m squared.
We've put together some guides below based on a range of project sizes.

Dulux Paint Calculator is provided as a guide only. These calculations are based on a two coat coverage for top coats with a spread rate of 16 square metres per litre and one coat coverage for preparation products with a spread rate of 12 square metres per litre. The coverage rates will vary depending on surface being coated and the particular product range such as spray paints and the Dulux Design Effects range. More information on these products can be found on the cans, by using our live chat service or by calling Customer Service on 0800 800 424.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the estimate, however paint requirements may vary depending on the surface, type of paint, sheen level and colour chosen.
