How Much Does Interior Painting Cost in Auckland?

Determining a fixed rate for painting is always difficult and it’s generally because of all the variables that come into play such as condition, repair work, access, type of paint, number of coats need, etc but the general square metre rate charge is around $40-50 per square metre in Auckland.

An interior painter can help you paint a room, from ceilings to walls. The average total cost for a painting project (interior painting) is on average around $3,500 to $5,000 (standard one storey home). However, depending on the factors below the average price for how much it costs to paint a house, or tackle other interior painting projects could run higher. Factors such as:

  • Removal of wallpaper
  • Repair/preparation work
  • Access/ Scaffolding for high areas
  • Type of paint
  • and detailing work required

We’ve also put together standard square metre sizes of home to give you an indication on what you can expect to pay. This painting price guide will at least give you a ball park figure to help you get set for your project.

If you own a rental property or manage rental properties, getting the interior of the property painted can be a great way to add value – which means selling the property for more, and you can attract better quality tenants and charge out more. It is also worth it to choose durable paint that will last for several years, it is also an investment. Investing a bit in the cost to paint a room will help you out in the long run.
