Online Paint Calculator

Online Paint Calculator

As we look at our walls and daydreams turn into plans for adornment befitting a month celebrating the same, we might realize that those walls could use a coat of paint.

One of the tenets of green living is a commitment to reducing waste, and HGTV's online paint calculator can help you apply that principle to your paint buying practices.

Taking into account the condition of your walls, the paint finish, number of coats, surface area measurements and number of doors and windows, the calculator spits back its best guess for how much paint you'll need. Ta da! Less waste, you'll save money, and you don't have to puzzle over what to do with that perfectly serviceable quart of goldenrod semi-gloss.

By the way, what have folks been doing with leftover wall paint anyway?
