How much does interior house painting cost in Canberra?

Generally, pricing can vary from your location and condition of your surface. See further details below on pricing.

An estimate of $20 to $30 per square metre is the standard for interior painting costs. It largely depends on the quality of materials used, the condition of the property and the expertise of the tradesperson.

You can save a lot of money if you deal with professional painters that back up their workmanship with a good warranty and use quality materials. As with most things, you get what you pay for.

Highly Recommend

Simon went above and beyond. His customer service was excellent. Simon (and Mitch) did a wonderful job colour matching and repainting several interior walls upstairs, repainting the skirting boards and doors and painting the new ceiling and sliding door of our recently renovated bathroom. Simon also provided really useful advice about a number of future projects we are planning. We would highly recommend him and his team.
