An easy way to calculate the square footage of an average room is to measure the length and the height of the walls and multiply those two numbers together.
Surprisingly, not only does the color matter, but the finish, or sheen, does as well. High gloss paint finishes are very durable and easier to clean, but the downside is they often highlight imperfections in your walls.
"I hired Josh Douglas with A Painter's Touch to paint our home several months ago. I am always pretty specific with any contractor I hire because I want to make sure I get what I want and get what I am paying for. Josh had no problem with my specifications and was always on time.The price we set prior to the job, was the price I paid, NO HIDDEN FEES! The job was completed on time. His painting was absolute perfection. I would definitely recommend Josh and A Painter's Touch to anyone and I appreciate his honesty and integrity!"
As a general rule of thumb, newer homes involve much less prep work to start painting the exterior. New construction will already be on even ground and won’t have anything obstructing the sides so that it will be less time consuming and cheaper. The painters will be able to come on the site right after the exterior construction is complete.
You can determine the final price for your painting project by hiring professional painters. Painting the interior of your home for a 2000 square foot home costs an average of $2115, with most contractors charging between $1 and $3 per square foot.
There is now one section explaining how to take measurements before painting a house, and another dedicated to working with an interior decorator.
Some of the Major Variables to consider that impact the cost of interior painting are: The Height of the Ceilings – there can be a big difference in labor between 8’ ceilings and 12’ ceilings, not to mention more drywall to paint. The current colors and the new colors – this can effect how many coats and what type of paint to use at times. The Prep involved – is the drywall evenly textured, are there anchor & nail holes to patch? Does the trim need sanding, caulking, or puttying? The environment we will be working in – are the rooms empty, or will they have furniture in the middle? What type of floors are there? Will they need special coverings to protect them? What kind of doors or trim do you have – are the doors paneled or flat? Do you have single or double layered crown? Will the colors change or stay the same? Are they painting in oil or latex?

Before the yellowing gets too bad, keep in mind that ceiling paint tends to last about twice as long as wall paint. So, getting your home’s ceilings repainted every other time you get your walls painted can help keep your ceilings looking bright. When you trust your ceiling paint project to a professional painting company, it can often last up to 10 years.
Outside of work, Lee likes to stay active with exercise and outdoor activities. “I go to the gym five days a week, and I’m an avid swimmer and cyclist. I also do a lot of skiing in the winter and enjoy taking walks along the beach.” Additionally, Lee likes spending time with his wife, Alexandra, their two grown children, Britney and River, and their one-year old daughter, Meadow. “After being in an empty nest for a while, Alexandra and I recently had another daughter. It’s been an amazing experience to have a second go-round at parenthood.”
Given that an average worker can prepare approximately 50 square feet of wall surface and paint about 150 feet per hour, preparing and painting 2,000 square feet will take around 54 hours. If you multiply 54 hours by $40, which is the average cost per hour for house painting or staining in Florida, it will cost you $2,160 to paint 2,000 square feet of wall surface. Now, if you factor in the cost of the primer and paint, a fair painting estimate should range somewhere between $2,500 and $3,000, with one coat of primer and paint.
