The onslaught of COVID-19 has forced us to spend more time inside our homes. The family togetherness brought the spotlight on a room that some might have taken for granted, save for special holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas: the dining room.
The new gathering focal point brought much attention to the dining room, warranting makeovers and repaints. A fresh coat of paint is the easiest and most dramatic change for any room. We will provide some insight if you are considering getting your dining room painted.
On average, painters charge $500 to $1,000 for wall painting per room, depending on its size. Painting walls, ceilings, and woodwork in a room typically can cost between $6.00 to $15 per square foot.
The total cost of painting ranges from $955 to $2,890, with a national average of $1,892. The wall color is usually one of the simplest methods to give a room a dramatic makeover and stay on the lower side of pricing.
Some contractors use a rough base rate of $1.50 or $2.00 per square foot, multiplying 4 to 6 times the paint cost, estimating the time the job will take and adding it to a materials estimate—and some give the lowest price to outbid the competition.
The cost of painting a room varies by size, shape, height, and other features. The expenses will increase if there are built-in elements, many trims to work around, a high ceiling, or small places.
Aside from the arrangement, the style of the walls can significantly impact the expenses. If there is wood paneling or a lot of texture, the project will take more paint and time, reflected in the price.
An average-sized room takes two to four days to paint. That’s how long it takes to properly prep, prime, and paint. It takes more effort, but once you see the results, you’ll agree that time was well spent.
The dining room can be a very ornate room with lots of woodwork. You get into the very high costs of painting in the 1000s. But if you have a fundamental ten by 12 ft room with just some baseboards and a few windows, you will be at the low end of pricing.
Thus, it is hard for some to say what the cost would be, but we can typically tell you within a few minutes once we have all the information needed.
At The Picky Painters, we do not require an actual visit to your home. You can book a virtual or phone appointment with us to discuss the project you want to complete at your house. We provide the fastest estimate in Cleveland, Ohio. All you need to do is sent us pictures of the area that we want to get painted so we can do the calculation. In that way, you’ll have an idea of how much it may cost.
