You will also have to consider the texture of the walls. Highly textured walls may require special equipment to paint. Otherwise, you risk messing up the entire process. Plus, it’s important to consider the overall condition of the walls. Painters may have to patch holes, repair drywall, and remove wallpaper, which will further drive up your project’s cost. Interior painting projects can be complex in different ways. If you’re thinking about painting a mural, high ceilings, accent walls, or using faux finishes, you can expect to see a shift in the overall cost. Some rooms can be more costly to paint than others, depending on the number of windows, style of trim, wall height, and type of paint you decide to use.
You should also fill in any nail holes or cracks with spackling, as well as tape off adjacent walls, window trim, and light switch or outlet covers. Use drop cloths, newspapers, or a roll of paper to cover the floor.
