Paint supplies cost anywhere from $10 to $100 or more depending on what you need. Painters will typically provide most of the supplies for a project, but sometimes they will allow you to pay for solely labor if you provide all the materials yourself. You might decide to do a DIY paint job down the road. In which case having these supplies on-hand will save you time and money.
"William and the entire Edge team were such a pleasure to work with. It was a joy to find craftsman who take their work seriously, listen to the homeowner, give fair prices, and leave your home better than they found it. I recommend William and the edge team without hesitation. They repaired all of the damaged wood around my homeĆ¢ s exterior and sanded and painted potion clean upAfter themselves immaculately. I cannot recommend Edge strongly enough and without hesitation, I would hire them again."

Whether doing it yourself or hiring someone, buy the best quality paint you can afford; it lasts longer and in some situations requires only one coat of paint instead of two. Painting a room usually involves prep work, primer and latex or alkyd paints with a range of finishes. HGTV.com gives a quick overview [1] as well as a list of painting dos and don'ts[2] .

I have the time since I work from home and work has been slow, so I volunteered to paint our kitchen..10 X 16. My hubby changed his mind midway through the painting, so I had to change color. Took 3 days. I did most of the painting and he painted and did some touch up work. We spent $126 in paint and supplies which included primer, ceiling paint, primer, three colors, semi gloss for trim and chair rail, assorted brushes, roller covers, and drop cloths. After all was said and done, it looks really good.
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.
Although painting a room sounds easy, it can be difficult for inexperienced individuals to coat a room evenly. Too much paint and bubbles start to form, while using too little paint can leave sections pale and off-color. Hiring a professional interior painter near you can eliminate these problems. Plus, a pro can offer color and paint type suggestions, ensure that paint doesn't get on your furniture and floor, and may be able to offer specialty finishes and patterns.

Entire interior house painting job (excluding ceilings). 3 Bedroom / 2 Bath, Kitchen, Dining Room, Family Room, Living Room and Utility Room. Nothing really out of the ordinary, single level, no unusual architecture. I got estimates from professional painting companies, both small and large and individual "painters for hire". What surprised me was the huge range of estimates. $2,800 on the low end to $10,500!! on the high end. Finally went with a small family company at $4,500, (the lower bids seemed a little disorganized and unprofessional). The company I went with may not have been the lowest bid, but they seemed to know their stuff, spending over two hours doing color matching and comparisons just for the estimate. I couldn't be happier with the result, all their suggestion's were spot on, the house looks amazing!

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.

"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."
