The Cost To Paint The Interior Of A House In Catawba County

Residential Painting

People love the feeling of walking into a newly painted room in their home.

The walls look new and shiny, making their home feel fun and exciting. Painting a room with the same color can give it a fresh look and feel. Choosing a new color can make it seem like you’re walking into a room in your home you didn’t know was there.

But before people get to that stage they have to do some research first.

The most common question people want answers for involves cost. As a professional painting company, one of the questions we get most is “what’s the cost to paint the interior of a house?”

Most are specifically about the cost of painting kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and other interior areas. Sometimes we do get questions about painting the entire interior.

The answer is always different. It changes based on your wants and needs. But, we can give you some ballpark figures about the cost to paint a house interior.

How Much Does It Cost To Paint The Interior Of A House?

The cost to paint the interior of a house is anywhere from $500 to $28,000 and higher. It depends on what you’re painting and the complexity of your project. Just painting the kitchen versus the entire house will change the cost by a lot.

Price Ranges For Specific Areas

Painting an average size bedroom can cost between $500 and $1,200. This includes painting the walls, ceiling, and any woodwork. The price will change depending on the condition of the walls, the paint on the wall, and the number of coats it needs.

Painting a kitchen a new color can cost between $720 and $1,500. There may not be as much wall space but painting a kitchen is harder. They have smaller spaces that are hard to reach. It takes a lot to prep because cabinets, counters, appliances, and other things need covering. Painting a new color over an old one involves more work too.

For painting all the rooms in a home it can cost:

  • $5,000-$12,000 for a 2,500 square foot home 
  • $7,000-$14,0000 for a 3,500 square foot home
  • $10,000-$20,000 for a 4,500 square foot home

This includes all the walls, ceilings, and any woodwork as well. Pricing will change based on several factors and your specific wants and needs.

What Causes The Cost To Change

Size is one of the biggest factors. A larger painting area needs more time, effort, and materials. A 2-story foyer will need more paint and more people or time to complete. It may also need special equipment to reach the ceiling, which leads into complexity.

The more complex, or harder, a job is the more it’ll cost. Special equipment is needed for tall walls. Painting on new colors means more paint to keep the old from bleeding through. Tight spaces make painting harder and more time-consuming.

The quality of the materials you choose changes the price too. We like to use high-end paint because it looks better for longer than cheap paint. Low-end paint may cost less upfront but your walls will need repainting more often. This drains your wallet and time and you have to let people in to paint your house sooner.
