Years ago, I remember being hired to repaint the offices at this local radio station.
The original price came at around $4000 and we were hired to do the work... HOWEVER
Once the Interior Decorator finished the Color Consultation, the end result was that they had choosen to go with 22 DIFFERENT COLORS... and most of those colors were yellows, oranges and bright reds.
Let's just say that this changed EVERYTHING!
So what's the lesson?
If you're a PAINTER... you need to make sure your quote specifies the number of coats... and the number of colors that are allowed for the price given.
If you're a HOMEOWNER... you need to be aware of this possibility and make sure to check with your Painting Contractor to see if the Colors that are being considered will have an impact on the price.
And if you're a COLOR CONSULTANT... you need to be aware of this possibility as well and work with the Painting Contractor so that together you can help your clients get to a color palette they can both... LOVE and AFFORD.
