Specialty painting, like murals and trompe l’oeil, costs $40 to $50 per hour. Paint might range between $75 to $90. The professional’s skill and experience are also determining factors. While a freelance artist might charge $25 to $30 an hour, a very skilled professional might charge $80 or more. Some might also charge $60 or more for a consultation.


Interior painting can be an inexpensive and creative way for homeowners to demonstrate their style and personality. There are numerous colors and textures of paint available, including options with extra or no shine. Whether you choose to paint your entire home, a single room, or just an accent wall, a new coat of paint is a great way to give your interior a facelift without a lot of investment.
A gallon of paint costs $15 to $40 and covers about 350 square feet with one coat. Designer varieties can run over $100 per gallon. Your contractor pays 50 percent less than what it runs in a home improvement store. You’ll also need to spend another $20 to $100 on supplies like brushes, rollers, masking paper and plastic. A professional will have these items on-hand.

I was a professional painter way way back for a company. Now I am dabbling in working around the neighborhood here and there and needed to know how much I should charge. I recently painted an entire home including woodwork / doors / windows/ baseboards and the paint costs $230 ish and I did it free for my best friend . It took me 4 days to do . 7am-9pm . It turned out absolutely beautiful , and every room was a different color .
Hired a pro to paint interior and exterior of my house. It was new construction. Outside is approx. 50% board and batten, also had cedar beams inside and out on porches. Outside was 3000 and inside was 8000. this included prime and paint all base, doors, closets and cabinets. All paint and stain was Sherwin Williams, high quality stuff. I highly recommend getting pros you dont have to bird dog and punch over and over! May cost a little more initially, but you'll be alot happier with the results!!
"I had Sam and his team come in to repaint our kitchen cabinets that were originally a dark wood stain. He cleaned, sanded, primed, and put on 2 coats of sheer white on both the doors and frames of the cabinet and they came out great. The kitchen is much brighter and even up close it is hard to tell that the original cabinets were not white. They were prompt and very communicative over the phone. We may soon hire them back to paint the kitchen next."
