How long does it take for your painting renovations?

Are you considering refreshing your interior by repainting your walls? Painting walls and ceilings requires meticulous work to achieve a flawless finish. On average, you should plan for 1-2 days to properly paint a single room.

However, if you're not a DIY enthusiast, you might spend 5 days properly repainting a small office. Fortunately, ProPinceau is here to complete your project quickly and efficiently.

Repainting a room takes an average of 1 day.

To avoid the frustrations associated with such projects, calling a professional like ProPinceau will save you time. Indeed, an expert informs you in advance of the duration of the work, taking your expectations into account. On average, they plan for:

  • 1 day to paint an office

  • 1 to 2 days to paint a bedroom

  • 2 to 3 days to paint an open-plan living room, kitchen, and dining area

Plan for at least 5 days to renovate the painting of an entire house.

The details to consider when determining the duration of the project.

You're probably wondering why some brush strokes take so long to complete? Painting renovation involves several stages, with durations ranging from an hour to several days:

  1. Defining the nature of the project: If you want to create patterns or special effects, the execution time will be longer. The same goes for painting hard-to-reach surfaces.

  2. Handling materials: Various types of products may be required along with equipment and materials. Sometimes, multiple trips may be necessary to gather everything needed.

  3. Protecting the surroundings: The time required varies depending on the nature of the work and the area to be protected.

  4. Preparation: This stage can take from 1 hour to a day and a half, depending on the condition of the walls. It includes cleaning, plaster repair, applying latex, and priming.

  5. Paint application: Drying time between each coat of paint must be observed. This can range from a few hours to an entire day, depending on the type of paint and finish you desire. For example, water-based paint requires 6 hours of drying time, while acrylic paint requires 8 hours. The number of paint finishes will also influence the duration (e.g., matte, velvet, pearl, etc.).

  6. Cleaning: Final cleanup generally takes no more than 4 hours.


To achieve a perfectly smooth and aesthetic result, the expertise of a painter makes all the difference. Moreover, carrying out the work can take a lot of time for an untrained DIY enthusiast.
