How Much Does Interior House Painting Cost?
How much does it cost to get a professional to paint your house interior? With a single undercoat and two finishing coats, you can expect the average price in Brisbane to be around $30 to $50 per square metre, including the ceiling.
Because professional painters typically charge by the square metre, the overall cost to paint the interior of a house depends on the size of your home. For example:
- You can expect to pay $1000 to $3000 for two bedrooms and a kitchen/living area.
- For a two-bedroom unit with one bathroom and laundry you can expect to pay $3000-$5000.
- For a standard three-bedroom house with two bathrooms, kitchen and laundry, your quotes should range from $5000-$10,000.
Keep in mind that this is assuming a standard house with no additional aspects or extras such as wallpapering and more advanced finishes. For this reason, it is best to get an accurate quote from a reputable painting company.
If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, the best way to get started is to repaint your walls. You can save money by taking the DIY route, but having a professional to paint your property ensures that you have fantastic finishes throughout the work which will increase the value of your property for potential buyers in the future.
What Factors Affect The Price Of Interior Painting?
Size is the main factor that affects the overall price of painting the interior of your property, but there are other considerations that can impact the price:
- Height of the ceilings
- Total area covered
- Number of rooms to paint
- Type of paint used (the quality of the paint)
- Number of colours used and the paint colour itself
- Condition of the walls
- Decorative plaster
- Feature walls
- Any paint removal or treatment (e.g. mould).
The total size of your property is a good indicator for price as more area means more time required to complete the painting and more paint. However, if you have the same area with more rooms it will cost you more than if it was just one big room. This is because there are necessary steps that have to be undertaken for each new roof (setting up drop sheets etc). If the painters have to keep moving from room to room this affects the speed at which they can complete their work. Tall ceilings also have an impact on price as there is more work that is needed to be completed on ladders which is slower than typical stand up painting.
The type of paint you use can also impact the cost — better quality paints will cost more, but they’ll also keep their colour longer than the cheaper options. Adding extras such as textured finishes, can also increase this cost.
The number of colours you use can also increase costs, because you will be joining two different colours and you will need to take more care when you are painting between sections.
The existing condition of the walls will also have an impact on the price, if your walls are in poor condition you will likely have to spend more time prepping the walls, maybe even plastering to make them suitable for painting.
When it comes to preparing a quote, we take all of these factors and more into consideration, when giving you a quotation. A more inexperienced painter may focus on just giving you the most competitive price, but as with any trade job, the lowest quote is not necessarily the best one for you to go with. It’s worth considering that a higher quote likely also indicates the painter’s experience and the likelihood that they will stand behind their warranty.
Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Your House Painted
When vetting potential companies to do your interior painting work, it is important to ask the following questions:
- What training, qualifications and certifications do they have?
- When can you start?
- What is your lead time?
- Am I able to see examples of previous work?
- Do you provide a detailed, written quote?
- Can you provide a breakdown of the services you include within a quote?
- Do you have a QBCC License?
Why Interior House Painting Increases Your Property Value
Painting the interior of your home or investment property can significantly increase the value of your property – especially if the existing paint job is in a less than desirable state. It can also help attract renters to your investment property so you don’t lose valuable weeks with your property unoccupied.
When Array of Colour starts a painting job we take great care to maintain the presentation of your home before we begin painting, ensuring we keep paint off the floor or windows. Window trims, skirting boards and doors require close attention when painting, and we take great care to ensure that these small details look fantastic.
We work efficiently so we can provide a competitive price, and we’re not happy unless you’re happy.

We understand how important it is for your painting jobs to be completed as fast as possible. We know how it can be a pain not to be able to properly access your home or office. That’s why we are committed to finishing your interior house painting job efficiently.
When it comes to completing interior and exterior painting work, there are many factors that can impact the time it takes to complete a house painting job in Brisbane. These include:
- The size of of the area that needs to be painted
- The condition of the surface we’re painting.
- The weather
At Array of Colour there are a number of things we do to make sure every project is completed on time.
- Each crew is focussed on one job at a time. This means that you only have to deal with one group of trades, and we can be out of your hair as soon as possible. Our tradesmen can focus on one job each day, no split work between painters. Therefore you are seeing the same professional painter each morning at the start of your job.

The Dangers of DIY Painting
As experienced painters, our trades have a wide selection of brushes, tools and scaffold which we use when completing your job. As well as this, our industry connections allow us to receive better prices for quality materials. Purchasing all of the equipment and paints yourself can end up being just as expensive as going with a professional painter (even when you save on the labour cost).
There are also other issues you can experience trying to paint your property:
- Inadequate protection of floors.
- Incorrect or mismatch of paint.
- Feature walls – both applications and cover-ups.
- Damage to other areas of the house.
- Damage to fittings on or near the painting area.
- Incorrect disposal of paint and cleaning methods.
