One question we get asked every day is what does it cost to paint a bedroom
Some people are shocked at the price and some understand the costs that a small company incurs on a daily basis to stay in business
Using a professional painting company comes along with many great things, a trained staff, professional painters, liability insurance and workman’s compensation paid on workers, crews, vehicles so if something would happen you and your family (and home) are covered. The same can not be said hiring a company who uses uninsured sub-contractors. You’re on your own there and hopefully if something would happen the insurance is in place on the company and their subcontractors
Here are some fees that are in the cost to paint a room from a professional company:
- Workman Compensation and liability insurance
- Taxes, payroll taxes, social security unemployment etc
- Costs such as vehicles and marketing
- Training for painters
- Health Insurance and benefit packages if applicable
So what does it cost to paint a bedroom let’s get to the answer
To paint a typical 10x 12 bedroom pictured above with two coats of quality paint from Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore you will have these typical costs
The average cost would be about $350
Add the ceilings and add $150-$200
Add the baseboard for about $125
So a typical room this size is around $350-$600 Depending on what is getting done, height of walls, any patching other than small dings, dents and nail holes. The timeframe is also important; if you need it done right away a good company is ging to be booked out 4-6 weeks, so to move you up in the schedule will come with a premium.
Do you need the absolute best materials and quality? Well then that is a premium
If price is the absolute most important thing and you need the cheapest price possible, than timing and quality will certainly be where the savings will come from, it would be scheduled when crews are free , a rainy day where scheduled exterior work cannot be done. You may get trainees on site learning the trade or the average painter while the top craftsman are on the other jobs where the top quality was requested and paid for.
Most jobs can be done under any budget “if” that is known and spoken about at the estimate.
What we find sometimes is that is not shared, someone looking for the bottom dollar price never shares that, gets a bunch of estimates and solely picks the lowest price regardless of who they preferred while if they would of shared this with the painting company they likes most likely the project could have been adjusted to make that happen
