How Much Does It Cost To Paint A 3 Bedroom House?

The cost to paint the interior of a three-bedroom house in the Brisbane area can vary depending on several factors, for example, the surface of your interior walls.

The process is simple and relatively inexpensive for a standard plasterboard home, as plasterboard is a relatively easy surface to paint. However, if your project requires more detail and time to complete, this can obviously increase the price.

The Process For Painting The Interior Of A House In Brisbane

While the price of painting the interior of a three-bedroom home in Brisbane can vary, the overall process for painting the house remains the same. Here is the typical process that we take at Surepaint:

  1. Prepare and clean surfaces – Our first step involves setting up drop sheets to help protect flooring, furniture and carpets. We also remove picture hooks and anything on the wall so we can begin the project.

    It’s also essential to clean the surfaces to get a better finish and extend the life of the paint coating. Cleaning involves removing mould and grease. Using the right chemicals and paint can help prevent mould from returning.

  2. Sanding and priming – Depending on the quality of the surface, we may need to sand walls, trims and doors to get a smooth finish. This stage also involves priming bare areas or old enamel paints so that the new coating sticks well. Besides sanding and priming, we also repair any holes, dents or cracks that may affect your walls, ceilings, trims and doors. 
  3. Painting – Once we’ve fully set up the site and prepared the surfaces for painting, we can begin. We typically apply two coats of premium interior acrylic to walls and ceilings, as well as two coats of premium gloss acrylic to trims and doors. We use gloss on trims and doors as it offers better durability and protection, helping to reduce scuff marks and defects.
  4. Quality control – An essential part of our service involves undertaking a thorough quality control assessment at the completion of the project. Quality control ensures the paint job is to our high standards. It’s undertaken by a licensed supervisor who follows best-practice methods.
  5. Site clean up – As part of our service, we offer a complete site clean-up to ensure your property looks like it did before we arrived on site, aside from a new paint job!

The above process may deviate slightly. However, this is the general way a Brisbane painter will paint the interior of a unit or townhouse

Prepping a ceiling for interior painting

When painting interior surfaces, height access can either be easy to access or sometimes it can be highly challenging inside of stairwells.

Depending on the amount of furniture in the home, protection of surfaces and overall working conditions can slow efficiency which may increase your overall project pricing.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Cost Of Your
Interior Painting Project

Several factors can either increase or decrease the cost of painting the interior of a house professionally.

Factors that can mean additional costs include:

  1. Extremely dirty surfaces.
  2. Deep imperfections, holes, scratches etc.
  3. Items to be removed – Blinds, furniture etc.
  4. Un-primed walls, trims and doors ( requires full primer coat ).
  5. Colour ( dark colours and extremely bright colours require multiple coats.
  6. Use of oil paint instead of acrylic.
  7. Painting of just one room.
  8. Parking fees.
Factors that could decrease the overall cost to paint a house
  1. Multiple rooms, means our painters don’t have to wait on drying time which allows an efficient work flow.
  2. Furniture and all small items removed from work area.
  3. One coat application
