I think you would have to pay more towards the £150 mark in London but it depends what s/he is doing: repainting is obviously cheaper than painting fresh plaster which will need sanding,several coats and the woodwork will need caulking. Papering will cost more than painting; a staircase will cost more to paper than a front room etc etc.

You will need prep, filling any cracks, cleaning down the old paint etc. I would say between £100-£125, I've never heard of a decorator charging more depending on what they are doing. Ours charges for the no. of days he thinks the job will take at a flat rate.

I recently had a professional painter and decorator here and asked him out of interest how much our bedroom would cost to paint. It's a large room with two doorways (entrance and ensuite) and a window, it has a few settlement cracks and one bit where the plaster is bulging. It is painted already so would be painting over existing paint. He said £300 including materials. He does a fantastic job, mind.
