Outdated colors and faded paint can make the rooms in your house look old and uninviting. The best way to freshen up the living room in your home is with a new coat of paint. Interior painting always determines the “mood” and the beauty of your living space. Fresh living room paint can modernize and enhance the value of your home.
The Picky Painters in Berea, Ohio, work on Interior Painting projects and paint Living rooms in Brecksville, Avon, and Grafton to West Cleveland, Ohio. The average size of a living room is 20 ft long by 15 ft wide and 8 ft high. Pricing for this size of a living room would be:
The estimated price to paint a large living room would be $1300. This price includes two coats on the walls, one on the ceiling, and two on the baseboards.
All interior painting jobs require preparation work, painting, clean-up, and more. The first step for any living room project is moving furniture and other items to ensure they aren’t damaged. Then plastic off the furniture if still in the room. Then drop cloths are put down to protect the floor from paint splatters.
Preparation work includes sanding the walls to remove grit or dust, patching any holes or cracks, and sanding rough areas to create a smooth wall surface. These extra steps help ensure that the paint properly adheres to the walls of your living room. Next, a primer is applied to seal the underlying surface, allowing the paint to stick better to the surface. Finally, the new color is used for a rejuvenated and clean look.
The overall size of your room is the most significant factor in determining the price of the painting project. The typical ceilings in the area are 8′, but if you have 10 to 14-foot high ceilings, you should expect to pay more. Also, other factors can affect the price you pay to have your living room painted. If your living room has crown molding, chair rails, several windows, wainscoting, or other decorative wood features, there will be additional charges to paint your living room.
Interior room walls that need multiple coats of paint will be more expensive than regular living room painting projects. If you have a darkly painted room and are changing it into a lighter color of paint, it may require additional coats. Also, different paints take longer to dry between coats, making the project take longer. Some slow-drying oil-based paint can take six to eight hours to completely dry, while latex-based paint typically dries in about one hour.
