How to plan your interior home painting project
Tired of waking up to plain, white walls? Are you looking to tone down your university-bound teenager’s hot pink bedroom? Your home is your canvas, and you deserve painting services that realize your vision with minimal stress and maximum quality. Qualified paint contractors are indispensable to successful painting renovations. Be sure to hire a painter who will leave you with crisp, finished walls rather than peeling paint and unsightly bulges.
How much does it cost to paint the interior of a house?
The cost to paint the interior of a house is determined by location, the type of paint used, and the square footage covered. When figuring out how to paint a room, it’s not only important to know your desired room colour, but the conditions and layout of your room. This way you can factor in preparing walls for painting when determining your budget. Rooms with dents, scrapes, and damaged drywall will cost more than rooms with smooth and even walls. Detailed crown molding, unusual geometric shapes in the corners, and curved or domed ceilings will increase the price of an interior paint project. Overall, a standard interior paint job such as changing the room colour will cost $1,000-$2,000, while restoring walls in older houses with unusual layouts or applying an oil-based paint can cost upwards of $5,000.
