How much does it cost to paint the different rooms in my home?

Interior painting costs in Grand Rapids, MIPainting the inside of your home is more detailed than you might think. Having a skilled crew that understands the process and pays close attention to detail is very important.

Each project has its own unique variances that can affect the cost and scope of work, such as the condition of the drywall, caulking and nail filing, wallpaper removal, and priming, and the components being painted: walls, ceiling, trim, doors closets, etc.

Here are some areas to consider that will affect the cost of the project:

1) The height of the walls. An 8′ high bedroom ceiling is much easier to paint than an 18′ high ceiling in a foyer or living room.
2) The surfaces being painted. Will you be painting the trim, walls, ceiling, doors, and crowning molding? What kind of doors do you have? In general, the more surfaces you include the higher the cost
3) The colors being painted and the colors being painted over. Your colors will determine how many coats of paint are needed to reach your desired outcome.
4) The condition of the surfaces being painted. If the surfaces are in rough shape then more time will be needed to prepare them for the paint.
