Average Costs of a Trompe L’oeil or Mural

It is important to understand that when it comes to a highly specialized painting like this, it is almost impossible to get a specific quote without speaking directly to the artist and having a clear understanding of the finished project. However, homeowners can start with the rough estimate of $990 to $1,210, which is the average range that has been paid in the past.

Factors Affecting the Overall Cost of the Painting

Perhaps the single most influencing factor in the cost of a mural or Trompe L’oeil is the hourly rate of the artist you have in mind. Most people choose a specific artist to do the work, and the prices charged by artists can differ substantially. To cap costs, it might be best to opt for a total price rather than an hourly rate. In addition, the size of your painting, and its intricacy, will affect the overall price of the project. Finally, accessibility in the space also plays a role. Painting from a ladder is far more time-consuming than painting at eye-level.

Costs of Preserving and Protecting the Finished Work

After having a beautiful painting done on the walls of your home's interior, the last thing you want to do is have it fade over time or chip around the edges. Using high-quality paints is the first step, but sealing the work is also vital. An extra $65 to $80 can cover the cost of professional sealing the painting so that it doesn't fade or get damaged over time.

Having an artist paint a mural or Trompe L'oeil is a wonderful way to add creativity and style to any living space.
