Surprisingly, many contractors actually use floor square footage to create their “base bid’ for interiors. This method works because most homes have a pretty standard layout, meaning that most 2100 square foot homes will have about the same wall square footage when its all tallied up. But we still need to know that wall space for each room , or color, for paint purchasing.
This paint calculator makes it super easy to find out the exact all space for any room.
