How much does it cost to paint the interior of my home?

Painting the inside of your home is more than just slapping paint on the walls. It takes skill, attention to detail, and a crew of qualified professional painters. Our professional Certapro team in Saint Paul, Shoreview, Roseville, and other nearby service areas in Minnesota.

Every room in your home is different and will, therefore, have different needs and challenges to reach your desired outcome. We have developed a pricing guide by rooms to help you gauge the price of painting the interior of your home in Minnesota.

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.

These are just some of the factors that contribute to the price of painting the interior of your home. Below you will find some examples of some common sized rooms. All wall prices are based on 2 coats of paint and all ceilings, trim surfaces and doors are based on a 1 coat refresh of a solid mid-grade paint from recognized paint companies. The prices below are based on painting the walls and then adding other surfaces. The price includes standard prep for each surface being painted. Prices may vary based on total rooms and surfaces being done during the project.
