How many cans of paint do I need for an apartment? One gallon can of paint will cover up to 400 square feet, which is enough to cover a small room like a bathroom. Two gallon cans of paint cover up to 800 square feet, which is enough to cover an average size room.
How many rooms can 5 gallons of paint do? How much does a quart cover? According to our paint estimator, 5 gallons of paint can cover as much as 1,800 square feet. A quart of paint will coat about 90 square feet of space.
Where is the best place to store paint? Paint must be stored in a cool (not cold), dry place. Keep cans up off the floors (especially concrete ones) to prevent rust. Utility closets and basement storage rooms are ideal.
How many gallons of paint do I need for an apartment? Medium size room walls (12′ by 12′ by 8’High) will usually take about 3 quarts of a gallon. My rule of thumb is 3 gallons of good quality paint per every two bedrooms per two coats (if both bedrooms are the same colour).
