Let us help you calculate how much paint you need. We don’t want you to order too much and we don’t want you to find you don’t have enough!

Please remember that our advice is for guidance only, we strongly recommend that you always check with your decorator before ordering. Also you should take into account the type of surface you are painting. Below is a simple table which gives you an indication of the maximum coverage for all our finishes. Coverage is dependent on the surface and the thickness of paint applied. Call us on 01544 388535 if you have any questions.
