When speaking to a painting contractor, one of the first questions people ask is, “How much does it cost to paint a room?” There are about as many different answers to that question as there are houses in the Davis area, since the question is influenced by level of preparation, paint quality, the size of the room, the number of coats required and more. But an experienced, knowledgeable contractor can give you a pretty good estimate for the cost of some typical rooms.
These prices include thorough wall-preparation, high-quality materials, room protection and expert labor. When you hire Brooks Painting to do your interior painting, you can count on great results. Why would you want to do it yourself?
How Much Does It Cost to Paint a Small Room? A typical small bedroom, office or loft in the Davis area measures approximately 12×12. The cost to paint the walls would be about $285, and the ceiling would be an additional $125.
How Much Would It Cost to Paint a Medium-Sized Room? Here in the Sacramento region, many dining rooms, living rooms and bedrooms are around 13×15. This size room would cost about $350 to paint, and the ceiling would be $175.
How Much Does It Cost to Paint a Large Room? The largest room in the house is often the kitchen, family room or master bedroom. For a room about 16×20, the cost to paint would be $475, and the ceiling would add $250.
People often quickly assume that it is cheaper to go the do-it-yourself route when repainting a room. This can be the case, but there are often some hidden cost factors that can make it preferable to hire a professional. You should consider the following items when making your decision.
- Professional painters already have all the best equipment. When you do it yourself, you will either spend a lot of money on tools that you won’t use much, or you will do the job with improper tools and end up with undesirable results.
- Painting contractors know the techniques and products that will produce lasting results, so that your house will not need to be repainted as often. This directly equates to how much time it will take. What will take us a few hours or a day will take a homeowner a day or two.
- The quality of your paint job can increase the value of your home if you are considering selling. A professional house painter will leave you with the clean lines and flawless finish that really impress a buyer.
