The right glaze amount for a room

On average, how much glaze does a room usually need? Say a 16m2 room for instance?

"The amount of glaze needed for a room depends on a number of factors, such as the type of glaze being used, the method of application, the surface being glazed, and the desired level of coverage. It's difficult to give a specific estimate without knowing more details about your project.

As a general guideline, most manufacturers provide coverage information on their product labels or websites. For example, a gallon of glaze may cover between two and four hundred square metwrs, depending on the product.

For a 16 meter squared room, you would need approximately one to two gallons of glaze, depending on the coverage area per gallon of your chosen product, the surface being glazed, and the method of application. However, it's always a good idea to purchase a little extra to ensure you have enough to complete the project, and to account for any waste or mistakes."

"I use SBK it’s cheap ! I usually buy 1litre on eBay as I use quite a lot on gardening jobs. They sell it in b&q and Wilkinson if you want smaller quantities"
