How Much Does it Cost to Painting a 4-Room HDB Flat?

The cost of painting a 4-room HDB flat in Singapore will range from $1,250 to $2,000, 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 $400).

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

  1. Labour: 2 experienced painters will take 2 to 3 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. (Main reason)


It will take at least 40L of paint to paint the wall and ceiling with 2 coats of paint.
