Painting – it’s what makes a house a home. Picking from different colours and textures allow homeowners to express their creativity, and make for a great way to add a nice personal touch to a home.
Unfortunately though, when it comes to picking a contractor, it can sometimes be more stress than it’s worth – with one company after another advertising themselves as the “best on the market”, it can seem impossible to choose. Here, we’ve done the work for you, with this list of the 9 best painting services in Singapore, so you won’t have to sift through the fluff.
1. PS Painting Services – Free touch ups
It’s not uncommon for paint jobs to require an additional touch-up after completion. Accidental scrapes can chip away at the paint, reducing its durability and making it look unpresentable. While you may think that a touch-up is easy as only a small part of the wall needs to be repainted, this is not the case.

Touch-ups require skill and precision in order to keep the area inconspicuous. Matching the paint colour to the original requires great skill, while using the exact same pain applicator is key to keeping the surface texture the same. Because of this, many contractors charge for any touch-ups, but not PS Painting Services.
Price range: From $350
Telephone: 6850 5025
2. Painter Cube SG – Paint and wall repair all in one
If you know anything about makeup, you’ll know that it’s almost impossible to apply a smooth layer of foundation without first priming the face to fill up all the pores. The same goes with painting – it must be done on a smooth surface; if walls are rough or damaged, they must first be fixed up before painting can be done.
One would typically need to engage a repairman to patch up the holes in the walls before having painters come in and get the job done. With Painter Cube SG, however, you don’t have to. More than just painting and wall repair, they also do mural art and have paint consultants to help you colour match your home.
Price range: From $700
Telephone: 6653 6260
3. Venue Painting – 24-hour service hotline
Once in a while, emergencies happen. If you somehow have run into a painting emergency, Venue Painting will be able to help you. With a full service hotline operating 24/7, their team is available to you around the clock. They offer a wide range of regular and textured paints including ultra-metallic and stone-textured.
More than just urgent painting needs, however, this also makes them perfect for those with busy work schedules, who can’t be home to accommodate painters during the day. Other than offering round-the-clock painting services, they also specialise in whitewashing.
Price range: From $550
Telephone: 6319 7222
4. Budget Painting SG – One of the lowest prices on the market
Like the name suggests, Budget Painting SG offers one of the most cost-effective services on the market, perfect for those who need to get the job done, but on a tight budget. Where other contractors charge close to a thousand for a paint job, Budget Painting’s services start at $280.
Labour, delivery, cleanup and relocation costs are all included in their house painting prices. Even better, they don’t charge GST, so you can spend your 7% saving on some nice furnishings, or just save it if you’re really running on a budget.
Price range: From $280
Telephone: 9734 1484
5. Coozy Painting Services – 7-day workweek and textured paint services
Unlike Venue Painting, Coozy Painting Services does not work around the clock. They do, however, work all 7 days of the week, making them a great option for those with non-urgent needs but busy schedules.
They also offer textured wall paints, including spray texture paint that creates a sandy, stony effect, as well as effect painting using specialised brushes, sponges and rags. Uniquely, they are one of the few contractors that do door painting.
