How many would I need for 1 living room and 1 kitchen

Is 2.5l bigger than 5l I'm confused because the pricing is similar

People would need to know how big your Kitchen & Living Room are.

5L is bigger .

You will need 30 tins

I used this paint once to do a small room walls and ceiling from b&m. I think I got 2 good coats from a big 10 litre plus some left over. I wouldn't recommend as after the paint dried it leaves a chalky /dusty residue if u rub or brush the wall. I would not recommend the gloss either from my experience

2.5 is half of 5. That means you get half as much.
5 is twice as much as 2.5. That means you get twice as much.

10 is even bigger. 1 is smaller.

One 5l tin should cover around 65sqm, but you will need 2 coats so you can effectively halve that, plus inevitable wastage might take another 10% off the overall figure.

Obviously you will need to work out the dimensions of your walls taking in to account doors and windows that won't need painting. I'm just starting a similar project - a large living room and a small bedroom and hoping 2 x 5l tins will see me through.

they also had brilliant white for emultion/silk . and they was ment to be £14 . at asda abbey lane
