I just wanted to know what is the price to paint a basic room. The size is 12 x 12 with 8 ft ceilings. I would be providing the paint.

This will depend on a number of things.

Is this new drywall?

A repaint? if so what colours on the walls and what colour are you painting, if its a deep base you will need more coats, if its a light colour going over dark walls you will also need more.

I would let the painter choose the paint they like, then there's no hassles. We typically get discounts on the products as well.

I would likely charge around $650 to supply and re-paint ceilings, walls and trim.

Hope this helps.

Usually it would be approx $600 depending on what is involved. Meaning how dark the previous paint colour is and how many coats to cover it and if there is any patching to be done. Typically just for refreshing the room it can be done around $450-$500 .. if you are supplying the material.

Hopefully this answers your question.

Hi there,

Rory from Compass Construction led in Saskatoon. We would expect a painter to paint a room for somewhere between 350 and 500, labour only.
