Paint containers

Paint is available for purchase in a variety of container sizes. The size of container you will need to purchase depends on the size of the painting project you plan to undertake. For large projects, such as painting a whole house, it is more economical to buy paint in five-gallon buckets. For smaller jobs, such as painting a single room, quarts of paint usually suffice.


A quart of paint usually covers about 100 square feet.


Pint containers of paint hold 16 ounces or half a pound of paint. These cans are generally used to sample colors or for small projects where only a little bit of paint is needed. You can also purchase quarts of paint, which hold 32 ounces or two pints, if you need a little more. Larger gallon containers are also available, but they may be too much for your needs and result in wasted paint.


A gallon of paint generally covers 350 to 400 square feet, which is enough to cover a small room like a bathroom. A gallon of paint generally costs $15 to $30.

Paint cans

Paint usually comes in one-gallon, five-gallon, or 55-gallon containers. The type of container that paint comes in generally depends on the type of project you’re working on. For example, if you’re doing a large painting project, you might purchase a five-gallon bucket of paint.

One gallon

A gallon of paint covers about 350 square feet, which is enough to cover a small room like a bathroom.

Five gallon

Five gallon paint cans are the largest size that paint is sold in. These cans hold up to five gallons of paint, which covers approximately 400 square feet. If you need to cover a large area, or if you have a lot of trim work, five gallon paint cans are the way to go.

Paint colors

Blue is the color of the sky and the ocean and is often associated with depth and stability. It is widely used in corporate branding and can be seen in logos for companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Intel, AT&T, and Nissan. Blue is a calming color that can create a sense of order and can be used to communicate trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, and intelligence.


There are many different shades of white paint, and the one you choose will depend on the look you’re going for in your home.

Most paint companies offer a “white” or “off-white” color as part of their basic color palette. These colors are usually designed to be versatile and work well with many different styles of decor.

If you’re looking for a more traditional look, you might choose a white paint with a hint of cream or ivory in it. For a more modern look, you might choose a stark white or a white with a slight blue or green tint.

And if you’re looking for something truly unique, there are always ” designer whites” to choose from. These colors are usually only available from high-end paint companies and may cost more than traditional whites.


Black paint is a classic choice for any room in your house. Black paint can make a space feel more formal, elegant and powerful. It can also be used to make a small space feel larger or create an intimate feeling in a room. Black paint is perfect for accent walls, trim and fireplace surrounds.

Custom colors

Custom colors are colors that are not part of a paint company’s standard palette. To create a custom color, a paint company will combine the three primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) in different proportions. For example, to create a light purple, more blue than red and yellow would be used. To create a dark purple, more red and yellow would be used than blue.
