You’re excited! Your walls remind you too much of 2020 and you’ve decided it’s time for a change. Accent wall? Whole house? Increase curb appeal with new exterior colors? Maybe just the nursery. Whatever the reason, one recurring question comes up. 

How much does it cost?

Each state and city is going to differ, but as long as you’re comparing similar areas, you can get a pretty good idea of how many bills to shower your painters with. For simplicity and writing what I know, we’ll tackle the question of “How much does it cost to paint a house in Raleigh, North Carolina.”

Each house is going to vary on height of the house, ceiling height, amount of prep needed (drywall repairs, empty house vs furnished house, etc), and expectations and needs of the customer. Looking for renewing the color of walls is going to be cheaper than walls, ceiling, shiny baseboards, and a faux marble accent nook. Each will increase the costs, but I hope this gives you an idea of what to expect.
