PREPARING TO PAINT



WHY PAINT?

Using paint is an easy, very economical, and effective way to decorate a room. There are many different types and colors of paint now available and a range of easy-to-do paint effects. Wall color can determine the character of a room: a light paint will give a small room a sense of spaciousness, while a dark color will make a large room. Paint can also disguise flaws in walls and ceilings.

HOW MUCH PAINT?

To estimate the amount that you will need, read the instructions, taking into account the number of coats required and the type of surface-a porous surface, for example, will need more paint than a surface that is nonporous. Useful guidelines are:

Divide the room into units of the same color or type of paint.
Multiply together the height and width of each unit.
Add together the unit totals.
