Painting a home lends a particular ambience and mood to your apartment. So, having the right shades is a necessity to create harmony and emphasise your interior design styles. But how much time does it take to paint a 1BHK apartment?
Time taken depends on two factors:
Whether the client is currently staying in that apartment
The weather of the place
How these factors matter:
If it is an empty apartment, the procedure can be carried out in all the rooms simultaneously, thus making the completion faster. But if the client is staying there, the rooms have to be done one at a time or depending on how fast they are emptied of all the stuff. Painting an empty 1BHK apartment can be done in about 15-20 days. In the other case, it could take up to 2 months.
Weather plays a very important role too, because, in summer, the Lambi putty and the paint will dry faster.
During winter or monsoon, the same will take more days to dry.
Difference in Painting duration for 1 BHK and 3 BHK
Painting a 1BHK apartment will take 15-20 days, as mentioned above. But painting an empty 3BHK apartment will take about 22-25 days. Because of a larger area, more manpower is required to provide the best interior design styles.
For a 1BHK apartment, it takes two labourers, but for 3BHK, five labourers are required to do the same job.
Reason for Delay in Painting work
The main reason behind the delay in completion of painting is shade differences. There are myriads of options to choose from. Sometimes, homeowners dislike one shade and have the walls re-painted. This, along with the delay, increases labour cost and paint cost.
These additional costs are added to the final bill.
Tip to get Painting work faster
Installing Halogen lights in front of the walls make Lambi putty dry faster because of the heat emitted. For best interior design styles, the AC should be kept on for a day or two, to speed up the drying process, usually after the first coat of paint.
If any cracks or dirt is left after that, the wall can be given a final smooth touch up.
