Are you wondering what it would cost to paint a room? Kitchen cabinets? Whole exterior?

Here are some ballpark numbers from our experience.

Interior Room

For homes in the Twin Cities, painting the interior results in a 107 percent return-on-investment (ROI). Meaning, $1000 invested into a professionally painted interior room can add $2000 of value to your home.

Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets

A midrange kitchen remodeling project in the Twin Cities on average costs $79,886. You will always save money by enamel painting your kitchen cabinets instead of replacing them.

The cost to enamel paint cabinets commonly ranges from $3000 to $10,000.

We invest 90-120 hours into a typical kitchen cabinet job, which can take a whole crew anywhere from 4-7 days to complete.

Here are the steps to a lasting finish:

Painting your kitchen cabinets is one of the projects we DON’T recommend doing yourself unless you have experience enameling.

Whole Exterior

Painting your exterior is a great way to add value to your home while protecting your most valuable asset against the Minnesota weather. Exterior painting typically has a 55% return-on-investment, adding 5% or more to the sale price of your home.

The cost to paint an entire exterior is anywhere from $6000 to $15,000+, depending on the size of home.

According to Improovy, the national average is $7,582 for a 2,500-square-foot, two-story home. Luckily, most painting companies offer financing options for your painting project.
