Painting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to give your home's interior a facelift with dramatic results. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that difficult. Home improvement stores offer samples that you can take home. With these samples, you can try a few colors in large swaths on your wall to see the how the paint interacts with the room's natural light. Compare it against design elements like pillows or furniture to see whether it will work with your overall décor.
"C&A was not the cheapest company, but it was the only one that offered full service (removal of waste and carpet installation), and showed some real interest. Furthermore, the sales representative was on-time, polite, and always available. The finished job looks great, the crew was on top of its work, and they left after cleaning thoroughly, which not that many companies care to do. I highly recommend them."
Hired a paint contractor w/good recommendations, this room was 12x12 tops. Caulking, sanding and caulking 2 window sills, painted ceilings and walls 1 coat but 2 different colors, plain 1/4" x3" baseboards & 4 doors oil-based trim, w/2 doors only 1 side. We provided paint at $180, he ended up hiring day laborers & had to redo. Took 14 days, looks good now but need to paint more and I'm scared b/c we had a contract & he tried to extort more very very threatening & I have to now work by sq. ft. in other areas, don't want to be nickel & dimmed for every time repair (he charged $50 because our dog's nose touched a wet wall but they let him in)! Any ideas from others in my area? Actually done in 2014, doesn't allow for it.
I can't say enough great things about Saints of Paint. They went above and beyond my expectations in every possible way. They painted the entire interior of my house and the work that they did was perfect, thorough, and very reasonably priced. Not one detail was missed. On top of that, each member of the team is very friendly, honest, and considerate.
Got two bids so far to paint the interior of a new home. 2,600 sq ft. Was painted with flat cheap paint the first time. The first bid was $17,000.The second bid was $7000. Two coats of paint on ceilings and walls. All doors and closets to be painted too. Still waiting on third painter estimate. I'm wondering if $7000 is too high. This painter has a crew of 5, told me it would take a week. Seems a long time with 5 professionals painting.
I am a Handyman and I do pretty much all types of fixing, including painting. On this month I had a lady called me for a bid. 19 interior doors with cases included both sides, one exterior door (just one side) and, about 400 sqf of baseboard. My bid was for 1000.00 custumer will buy the paint.My question is, was I too expensive or way cheap?. Considering that she lives in that house and I have to cover up all the things she has in it. Plus I will use my sprayless. Thank you for your help folks#!
Pricing by the square foot for painting walls is typically between $1.75-$2.00 based on the floor plan, which equates to about $.55-.75/sq ft of overall wall space. So a 10x10 bedroom would typically cost between $175-$225 for the walls alone. Ceilings are generally between $.75-$1 a square foot, so another $75-$100, and trim should cost at least $1 a linear foot, but prices up to $3 a linear foot are pretty common, so trim for that 10x10 room would add between $75-$200. And doors should cost between $20-$50 per side.
Tipping house painters is good etiquette. You can base the tip on the size of the crew, and request the amount to be evenly divided. Or, you can leave a tip based on the size of the job and leave it up to the foreman to decide how it is distributed among the crew. Sometimes — especially with big projects — the painters on the job change during the course of the project, so it’s often customary to leave one tip for the whole job.
The average cost to paint the interior of a house or room is $1 to $3 per square foot. Painters charge $1,200 to $3,900 to paint the walls in a house interior, and the cost to paint a room is $350 to $850. Prices increase when including the ceilings, baseboards, and trim.

"What an absolute joy to work with this company. The Owner/Operator is both an artist and a consummate professional. We needed multiple projects as we were renovating a 60+ year old home while moving in. One project required Judit to integrate five disparate pieces of furniture to accommodate a dining room table we were importing from Sweden. She visited the showroom an inspected the floor model of the table and with that alone she perfectly matched all five pieces (corner china closet, low boy, sideboard, and two chairs) into a flawless dining room where she integrated modern, transitional and mission style furnishings within a singular, sleek presentation. Everyone that we entertain thinks we bought the pieces as a set. Secondly we had a beautiful maple sofa table that I attempted to stain. We needed the table for our entryway. Judit brainstormed a chalk paint solution that retained the beautiful table top but added a modern flair to the body of the table that matched both our extensive artwork and decor. Finally, we decided we wanted to update our kitchen but retain its' character. Judit faux distressed our cabinets and drawers mixing colors to create an aesthetic effect that pulls color from our Brazilian granite counter tops and restored flooring. She went further then just faux painting, she sanded, patched and repaired the old cabinets to ensure they were smooth and renewed. She even stained an island we built along one wall so that it provides contrast to the room. Now our kitchen is exceptionally unique and beautiful. We love older homes and this is our fourth renovation. This is bar none the most professional and exceptionally beautiful work I've had the pleasure to witness. Judit's talent, eye for beauty, and artistic skill as well as warm personality made what seemed impossible, exceptional. We can't express how grateful we are to have found A&J Decoration Restoration."
