Why Does Interior Painting Seem So Expensive?

If your house needs a makeover, there’s no better way to give it a renewed look and feel than a fresh coat of interior paint. However, many homeowners feel a little discouraged by the thought of paying a large sum of money to transform their home, without realizing that the seemingly high price is actually quite worthwhile! Continue reading below to learn more about a few of the factors that determine what you can expect to pay to have your home’s interior repainted – and why it’s absolutely worth the price, given how elevated your space will feel.

Consider The Size of Your Space

Like most interior design, when it comes to painting a house, every project is unique since houses come in various sizes and with all kinds of different rooms and layouts. The price of interior painting can vary greatly based on the scale of the spaces being painted; it’s almost always going to be more expensive to paint an entire home’s interior versus just a few rooms. More square footage means a greater amount of paint is needed, more prep work needs to be done, and more physical labor is required to complete the job. Naturally, all of this equates to a higher total cost. This is part of why it’s so important to work with a trustworthy team of professional painters; they can give you reliable cost estimates based on square footage.

High-Quality Paints Are Worth Their Price

Before you can paint, you’ll need to determine which type of paint needs to be used – and this boils down to much more than what color you want to select. You’ll want to pick high-quality paints, preferably ones that are eco-friendly and don’t contain any potentially harmful materials. Think of it like cooking – the better the ingredients you use, the better the resulting meal will cost. Even though these ingredients may cost more than cheaper alternatives, the difference in taste is worth the price! Know that professional painters will always use the best products available, and their costs will reflect this. But skimping on the quality of the paint will only lead to lackluster results, and a future need to repaint!

Other Small Factors to Consider

Although home size, labor costs, project complexity, and paint quality are among the most common factors that impact the cost of interior painting, other things to consider include the amount of prep work that needs to be done, whether multiple coats need to be applied, how much trim is needed, and other internal methods that paint contractors use for their projects.

Generally speaking, interior painting might seem like something you could do on your own for cheaper, but when you look at the big picture, it’s quick to realize that the quality of the results directly matches the price. That said, trust the process and know that your money is truly revitalizing your home’s look and feel!
