Because of that, Meets the Eye Studios’ pricing is designed to make budgeting simple and straightforward — flat rates, no hidden fees, and no obligation to use in-house equipment, just large and immaculate spaces loaded with amenities at costs that are completely transparent.

The cove and floor must be kept in good condition. We recommend keeping the floor covered to avoid any potential repainting charges. Absolutely no drilling into the cove or attachments to the cove are permitted. The Studio A cove can be painted any color, but must be returned to the original color at the project’s end.
The cost for painting the Studio A cove any color is $4,800. (This price includes painting it back to its original color.)
The cost for painting the Studio A floor any color is $1,800. (This price includes painting it back to its original color.)
