Hiring a painter and decorator FAQs

How long will my painting and decorating project take?

How long your project will take depends largely on how big the area being painted is, how many coats of paint are required, the complexity of the work, and how long your chosen paint takes to dry.

As a general guideline, you can expect a small room, like a bathroom or bedroom, to take between four and seven days (including covering furniture, removing fixtures, patching walls, painting, drying time, finishing touches and cleaning).
