$500 to cosmetically redo a room reasonable?
do you think $500 (roughly) a room is a good price? this is a "normal sized room, you can fit a bed, dresser, desk conformably and not be crowed"
this would entail primer and ceiling and wall paint. new base trim, crown molding and new door trim, as well as a new door (hollow core wood type)
my father is a kitchen designer and retired contractor, he build the i grew up in as well as a newer one before i went to college.
he came over to try and give me an idea of costs for things i wanted done around my house and i feel like good quality paint and new doors and trim can really add value to a house. trying to justify that high cost to my girlfriend (who's mentally is just paint everything; even stained clam shell trim) is the part i am struggling with.
i know its hard to talk price because it really depends on a number of factors such as location, size of room etc.
