Paint Calculator

The age old question. There's nothing more annoying than nearly finishing a room, so it's usually best to over-order a little and have some spare for touch-ups in the future. 

Here's an easy paint coverage calculator - or if you hate numbers, there's a very rough guide at the bottom:






for a box room or feature wall:

2 x coats, 1 x tins

coverage up to 30m2



for a single bedroom, galley kitchen or office:

2 x coats, 2 x tins

coverage up to 60m2



for a double bedroom, living or dining room:

2 x coats, 3 x tins

coverage up to 90m2



for open plan spaces and up+down hallways:

2 x coats, 4 x tins

coverage up to 120m2


If you do need more, never fear. COAT tint every order ourselves so we know there's no discrepancies in 'batches' like you might get from paint tins off the shelf. simply pop us a line for another tin of whatever you ordered and you'll have it the day after.

And if you end up with leftovers, you can also recycle your COAT paint, or help local causes by donating it to Community RePaint.
