For estimating the quantity of paint required, you will need to know the room wall sizes (length, height, and width), the number of windows, size of windows, the number of doors and size of doors. A standard living room (12’x8’) will require 2-3 gallons of paint using the industry average of 350 sq.ft. per gallon. Depending on the brand of the product and finish type, the cost can range from $30 to $100 for two gallons. If you plan to have a different color on the ceiling, trim or an accent wall, that will have to be calculated separately and would again add to the final cost.

“A lot of people like to prime the entire room,” Marchesi says. “I never thought it was necessary, especially with paint now-a-days in which you find primer in it already. However, if you’re going to do a lighter paint color over a darker existing paint color, it’ll show through, even after two coats. That’s when you want to prime.”
