Costs for painting a ceiling grid

Painting a suspended ceiling costs €5 - €12 per square meter. In most cases you cover the actual grid where the tiles are located and replace any tiles with new ones. Installation costs for a suspended ceiling range from €1,000 to €2,300. Although it costs a little more, it is usually a better option to maintain the acoustic functionality. 

Note: For commercial purposes, painting a suspended ceiling may void the warranty as well as break fire or building codes. Always check with your contractor about possible code violations before attempting this yourself.

Costs for painting a basement ceiling

Cost to Spray Black Ceiling

The cost of painting your ceiling black ranges from €1,000 to €3,000 for a typical ceiling. Black helps bring the ceiling components together. All the beams, electrical and plumbing components seemingly disappear for half the cost of a suspended ceiling. Unfortunately, it makes the room smaller and it is difficult to redo it in another colour. You can also think about white instead of black.
