How Much Does It Cost For An Interior Painting Job?

The cost of an interior paint job can depend on a number of factors which include the overall size of the project, the condition of your walls, the amount of prep work required, and the cost of the paint that you want to use. Also, additional costs should be factored in if you have high ceilings, walls, or some type of unique architectural element.

Before you reach out to a professional you should have in mind how many rooms in your home you would like painted. Often, you can land a great deal for having multiple rooms painted at one time.
How to Choose the Right Paint Colors
When you’re investing in an interior painting job you want to make sure that you select the right colors. The right color will complement and enhance the beauty of your home. Yet, selecting the right colors can feel so overwhelming when you consider the limitless options available. One of the best ways to determine what colors are best for your home is to pick out a few swatches from your local hardware store and match them against your walls just to get an idea of how the color may look. In addition, there are a variety of online simulation tools that allow you to upload a picture of rooms in your house and virtually apply a variety of paint colors. A good painter can also help make some recommendations on what hues are best suited for your house.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colors especially in areas like the bedrooms and the bathroom. Use the color wheel to aid in determining what type of colors you should implement to create the right mood. Colors that are located next to each other on the color wheel such as green and blue are referred to as analogous colors and give off a calming and soothing effect. On the contrary, if you prefer a neutral color scheme you can never go wrong with grey shade variants. Grey can pair wonderfully with any design scheme.
Two main types of paint are used in interior painting projects. Oil-based paints are smooth and durable. Whatever color you choose you can expect oil-based paint to provide a nice finish. This type of paint is hard and ideal for trims and floors. Low VOC latex paints are typically used in residential settings because they dry fast and it is easy to clean up. Matte finishes can effectively mask imperfections on the walls and ceilings.
How To Prepare Your House For Professional Interior Painting
You can save time and money by doing most of the prep work yourself. Before the contractor arrives you should move all of the furniture out of the way, taking down all of the wall hangings and window treatments. Store your valuables in a safe place. By moving everything out the way you minimize the amount of work the crew has to do when they get to your home.
Also, a good cleaning can help ensure a flawless application. If large areas are being painted you’ll want to make sure that the surfaces are clean. Use a mild detergent to thoroughly remove any lingering dirt or stains. Make sure you wipe the walls from top to bottom so that the contractor is working with a clean canvas.
How Long Does An Interior Paint Job Take to Complete?
The time it takes to complete an interior paint project very well depends on the size of the project. In most cases, it can take just a few hours to paint the walls in a room. If the trim and ceiling are included in the project multiple coats will be needed and it can take several hours for each coat of paint to dry. Painting an entire average-sized house of approximately 2000 square feet can be completed in about four days depending on how many contractors are working on the project. Customized colors and more extensive paint projects usually require lots of prep work which can also extend the timeline.
