How Much Does it Cost to Paint a 5-Room HDB Flat? (Updated Oct 2023)

The cost of painting a 5-room HDB flat in Singapore will range from $1,400 to $2,300, depending on the type of paint you choose, and the number of colours.

This is based on using Nippon Paint’s Vinilex 5000 (standard paint) to Odour-less EasyWash (premium paint), and if choose to use oil sealer (additional $500).

The main reasons why the price of engaging professional painters has increased are due to;

  1. Labour: 2 experienced painters will take 3 to 4 days. 
  2. Insurance
  3. Medical benefits for workers.
  4. Worker’s levy
  5. Increase in rental stay for the workers (2nd main reason).
  6. Increase in paint cost per tin. (The price of paint has increased by 30 to 40% for some brands since Covid-19 has been declared endemic. Check out Nippon Paint’s latest price.)

FAQs

It will take at least 45L of paint to paint the wall and ceiling with 2 coats.
