Each type of paint's preference is in accordance with its maintenance, for instance, lustre is the most common for households whereas velvet paint has usually opted for commercial spaces. The reason for such choice of paint is based on its chemical base that decides whether the surfaced can be cleaned with water or not.

A professional painter knows the quintessential seven hands required for properly painting a wall. Several coats of Primer, Putty and the last and most important one that is the colour itself make a complete ‘7 hands.’
The rates for lustre paint in Delhi comes in between Rs 30 to Rs 35 per sq. ft.
To get a quick estimation on how much paint work will be done, you need to multiply your carpet area by 4. For example: If your carpet area is 500 sq. ft. then you need to paint 500 X 4 = 2000 sq. ft. And as per the price quoted to you if the rate per sq. ft. is Rs 30 then the cost of painting would be 30 X 2000 = Rs 60,000.
The above is a rough estimation, but generally, the cost is calculated this way.
