A painting contractor charges between £130 and £260 to paint a 12-foot by 12-foot interior room, according to Cost Helper in 2010. This includes quality paint, labour and all necessary materials. The painter usually expects to do all the prep work like taping off and priming walls.

Do-it-Yourself Paint Job

If you want to save a bit of money and paint the walls yourself, you'll need to buy both the paint and the supplies. Paint for a 12-by-12 room costs around £16 to £65 in 2010, according to Cost Helper. Primer and supplies such as brushes and dust sheets cost between £6 and £32 depending on the quality.

Bottom Line

Painting a 1,500-square-foot home yourself should cost between £130 and £390, according to Cost Helper. Hiring a professional contractor to paint your home should cost between £715 and £1,300.
