Painting the interior of your home is a great way to revitalize your space and give it a fresh new look. People paint their interiors to revive tired or dirty walls, match a new interior design, brighten a dark room, or visually change the scope of the area. Because many interiors follow what is known as a “color story”, or a cohesive color design throughout the home, it’s not uncommon to paint the entirety of a home interior at one time.
Just as an artist has a set of steps painting a revered piece of art on his/her canvas, so does the house painter, on a much larger scale.

The house we’re working on is about 900 square feet. All in all it cost about $1300 to paint the entire place.

So we saved over $1000 doing it ourselves, and our cost included a paint sprayer we purchased! Actually, let me break down all of the costs for you.

My experience with this team was smooth and painless from the beginning. I was able to get an estimate appointment for exterior painting fairly quickly, and James arrived on time and gave me a sense of confidence with the company. Unlike other estimators who simply looked around the property and then tell me to look out for the estimate via email, James took some time to present the company's credentials and explain what the process would be like. He presented references and documents showing they were up to date on their workers comp insurance, and photos of the work in progress to demonstrate the process. It's old school, but I do appreciate it.
Decide what style you are going for. Rustic might mean more warm tones, whereas modern might include more neutral or cool colors. Choosing a style will help narrow down the range of colors or a specific palette that will convey the look you want. Are there features, tapestries or fixtures in the space that would only match certain colors?
For example, in the basement paints may come into contact with damp concrete and water vapor can make its way through brick, stucco, fiber cement, cinder block, etc. When this happens it often flakes and peels off due to the humid environment.
