Like I said before, great question. Probably the one we get the most. And probably the hardest to answer. See, each mural is priced individually. They are priced according to how long we figure it will take to paint them. For instance, a series of light, puffy clouds will take much less time to paint than say 15 full length recognizable portraits! It all comes down to the degree of detail required in the mural.
We tell clients that they can expect most interior murals to cost between 80 and 160 euros per square foot, but it could be less, or it could be more, depending upon the level of detail required. Exterior murals can cost as little as 16 euros per square foot, but then again, it depends upon size, accessibility and amount of detail required.
All of this is sorted out in the design phase of the project, when it is determined what it is exactly that you are looking for. Then we can take all of the parameters into consideration and give you a price.
Now, when we give you a price, we give you a price! There are no add-ons, extra charges, compensations, commissions, «Oops, I forgot this!», «Oh, I ran out of paint!,» etc. Like I said, when we give you a price, we give you a price. No surprises. UNLESS…
Unless the parameters of the project change. For instance, let’s say we give you a quote that includes painting portraits of 5 members of your family. During the middle of the project you decide to add six cousins. Well, the parameters have changed. We would have to charge more for that. I’m not talking about adding another butterfly or changing someone’s hair colour, but something that will add a considerable amount of time to the project. I would think that this is something absolutely understandable.
Honestly, the best way to find out how much a mural will cost is to simply give me a call. We can talk about what it is you’re looking for, and I can probably give you a pretty good estimate right on the phone. Hey, I’ve been doing this for a long time. It’s not rocket science. It’s murals. And it’s what I do. And I’m really, really good at what I do.
