Panneling a room

We've just had a quote to have our family room completely pannelled in MDF which the decorator will then come and paint a lovely sludgey grey oil eggshell.

How much would you reckon it should cost? The room is 18 ft x 13 ft.

We panelled a bathroom and the materials alone were about £500. Multiply that by about 4 x to scale up and it could easily be 2k in materials alone.

we did the bathroom, 80 - 100 sq' in tongue and groove, plus adhesive etc...cost about £80, but as done by labour involved, mind you it was only half a wall high!

So what was the quote then?

The original quote was £6,500 excluding decorating <faints> but we got a good joiner we know to do it on day rate plus materials. It will be significantly cheaper (not totally sure exactly how much yet as I haven't had the bill for materials) - less than half.

NAO - £1K? I wish.

The decorator finished yesterday and I am really very pleased with it. I felt better about the cost when my decorator told me he'd just finished at a house where he put up 12 rolls of wallpaper costing £200 per roll in the master bedroom.
