I tend to put paint on pretty heavy as compared to my wife. A standard gallon would do me about 350ft² and maybe 500ft² for my wife. It depends on how many coats and if the wall has a good primer or suitable base paint under it. If the existing paint is dark and the new paint is light (or vise-versa) you might need more coats to cover it up. Different paints differ in their coverage too. Best is to check the paint can and talk to the clerk. You might want to keep a little extra left over in case you have to do touch ups later (filled holes, marks, etc).

I found this link that gives approximates (paint types will differ however so see the can)
