Here's what you'll need to put a single coat of paint on the ceiling. Remember that this is only an estimate: you may need more or less depending on what colors you're choosing, how many coats you need, and what quality paint you're buying. This tool assumes that a smooth paint covers up to 350 square feet per gallon and a textured paint covers up to 300 square feet per gallon. Check the can to make sure the brand you're buying will cover that much. If it doesn't, you'll need to increase the number of gallons accordingly.
