Cost of Interior House Painting
Whether you want a fresh look for your home or you are planning to sell it in the future, a coat of paint on the interior can help the space to look newer, brighter and even a little more spacious. While it is possible to paint your home as a DIY project, it can take several days of labor in order to accomplish what may still end up looking sub-par. The best bet is to hire professional painters, and this cost guide can help you prepare for the average expense.

Cost of Painting An Interior Ceiling
One of the most popular projects that calls for professional painters is repainting an interior ceiling. Because of the height, tackling this job as a DIY project can be a serious challenge, and it also requires additional equipment in order to evenly roll paint along the ceiling's surface. On average, expect to pay between $242 and $412 for professional painting services on the ceiling of a 500sf room, a project that should take between five and six hours to complete.
Cost of Painting An Interior Room
On average, homeowners spend between $1,804 and $2,406 for professional painting projects in the interior of their home. However, that number is an average, and certain rooms will cost more than others. Bedrooms and living rooms, for example, tend to cost more than kitchens because all of the walls are exposed rather than covered up by cabinetry.
Factors That Influence Total Painting Costs
There are a number of different factors that can play a role in the total cost of professional paint services. One, perhaps most obviously, is the cost and quality of the paint itself. Since a single gallon of paint can cover between 300 and 350 square feet, however, it is rare that the cost of materials exceeds even 10 percent of the project. The bulk of the expense will be labor, and the accessibility as well as size of the space will determine the overall cost for the painting service.
Having a clear picture of the costs associated with painting the interior of your home can help you budget for professional services.
