How Much Paint for Bathroom?

For the fully wall-tilted bathroom, you will need about 1 liter of paint for the ceiling. For the non-titled bathroom wall, it will be 3 to 4 liters of paint for the bathroom wall.

The only area that you need to paint is the ceiling. Unless your HDB bathroom is not tiled (which we do not recommend). You should always tile your bathroom wall, as it will last longer and be easy to maintain.

As the bathrooms are usually the moistest in your home, I would recommend using oil sealer (1 liter, 1 coat) and anti-mould paint for the ceiling. You might want to consider it for your master bedroom too, as it’s next to the bathroom.

The above information is based on 2 coats of paint for your bathroom ceiling (sealer excluded).


It will take 3 to 4 liters of paint for your regular HDB bathroom wall, if your bathroom is not tiled.

Generally speaking, you should always paint at least 2 coats for all interior walls.

It will take about 3 hours to paint the bathroom ceiling with 2 coats. We need to prepare and protect the items in the bathroom.

If the bathroom wall are included, it will take almost a day.
