    "Between £450-650 depending on what materials and company you use.
    To do the job right you're looking at 3-4 days.
    Hope this helps.

    "The answer would be difficult to give as the condition of the walls are unknown, size of room is unknown and the type of paint etc is unknown. The best way to get a price is to get a visit and a free quote."

    "Hi, the coat would depend on what the walls look like after the wallpaper comes off, but I would recommend getting a couple of quotes as it will depend on where you live. The price differs in every area, I’d be looking around £200-£280."

    "£350 - £550 depending on the state of the walls and what actually needs doing."

    "Unfortunately it is nigh on impossible to quote for work without physically seeing what needs doing.
    I regularly have conversations with clients who try their best to describe what a room looks like, only to find a massive difference when we visit to estimate.
    Please consider that a proper tradesperson may see things far differently to how you view the works. Consideration has to be given to the substrate, condition, previous wall coatings etc etc.

    The best advice I could give is to contact someone with a good reputation/recommendation who should be more than happy to provide a free estimate and inform you of the works which are required to complete your project.

    Hope this helos

    "This all depends on how much prep there is on the walls.

    For me a budget of around £500 would be ok.

    Obviously I can't see the job so it is hard to quote."

    "To strip a feature wall and replace with new feature wall and paint a standard size room would be between £450 and £600 depending on how much preparation is needed and conditions of the walls and ceiling and woodwork"

    "Depends on the size of your room for starters. Also depends how well the wallpaper comes off.
    Sometimes there is a lot of scrape marks on the walls requiring a lot of filling and sanding prior to wall papering, IE a lot of prep work.
    The cost also depends on the quality of the finish you are expecting. Always use a good undercoat and make sure the undercoat looks solid with no visible roller lines, possibly 2 coats of undercoat.
    Again, in regards to the top coat, 2 coats of colour may not be enough to get the perfect solid colour you are hoping for. Also the quality of the paint you intend to use. Some cheaper paints simply require more coats to get the quality finish you need. I would recommend Dulux Trade paints as a standard for the finishing coats (with other more expensive brands also good e.g. F&B.
    Dulux Trade is a high standard paint and personally we always get a quality finish with it. If you are getting a tradesman to apply just 2 coats, expect just 2 coats. When we quote for painting works we assume 3 coats of colour to get the quality finish.
    In regards to your gloss (I’m assuming for wood work, skirting, architrave and doors) make sure they are prepped well (sanding first and filling). Then it’s a choice of whether you want to use water based or oil based for the woodwork. Oil gives a better coverage per coat,however the time between coats is significantly longer. With water based you will definitely get a couple coats on in a single sitting. Also clean up with water based is so much simpler."

    "Could cost anything depending on how long the paper takes to come off to how much prep the walls need and whether they will need to be lined, could take 3-4 days could take 4-6 days based on a decent decorator charging between £150-£200 a day."
