Are you planning to paint your 1 BHK house but wondering about the Cost of Painting a 1 BHK house? The Cost of Painting a 1 BHK house depends on several factors including the size of the house, the type of paint used, and the labour cost. In this article, we will break down the cost of painting a 1 BHK house and help you understand the different factors that contribute to the overall cost.
To start, let’s look at the cost of materials. The primary materials used in painting a house are primer and paint. On average, 1 liter of primer will cover around 220 sq feet and 1 liter of paint will cover up to 100 sq feet of area. For a 1 BHK house, which generally has a painting wall area of 600 to 800 sq feet and around 400 to 600 sq feet of ceiling area, you will need around 6 liters of primer and 14 liters of paint. The paint is consumed more on the walls as compared to the ceiling because the walls generally come in different colors while the ceiling is mostly white.
When it comes to the type of paint, you have a range of options to choose from such as Distemper, Tractor emulsion, Premium emulsion, Royale luxury, Shyne, or Royale Matt. The quantity of paint used will mostly remain the same regardless of the type of paint chosen. The price of budget range paint is around 200 rupees per litre, but you need 14 liters. For the safer side, you can buy 1 litre and 6 liters bucket as 14 liters bucket costs less than buying individually.
Now that we have understood the material cost, let’s focus on the labor cost. To complete a 1 BHK house, we would generally need 1 day if it’s empty and around 2 days if it’s occupied. If we consider 3 days of two painters each, that makes up to 6 labor for the entire project. Painters generally charge around 600 to 800 rupees depending on their experience and skills.
