Interior House Painting Costs
The cost to paint a house interior can range from about $330 to $3,900 and up. It depends on what your project is, how complex it is, and what options you choose. The following examples are for a normal bedroom size of 12-by-14 feet:
- Ceiling with 1 coat along with the walls: $50
- Just the ceiling with 1 coat: $150
- Trim with 1 coat: $270
- One wall with 2 coats: $270
- Walls with 1 coat: $280
- Walls with 2 coats: $350
- Walls, ceiling, and trim with 1 coat: $600
- Walls, ceiling, and trim with 2 coats: $670
A 2-story foyer costs $440 for one coat and $590 for two coats.
Kitchen cabinets are a whole different beast to paint. It takes a long and complex process along with a fair amount of skill to do correctly. Everything from preparation to painting to installing needs to be perfect.
This is why painting kitchen cabinets is more of an investment than painting other interior areas.
When painting over paint with 1 coat it can cost $1,500 to $2,500. Painting over stain is a minimum of $3,900 because it takes 3 coats of paint.
Touching up and applying a clear coat is $2,500.
