Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much should interior painting cost per square foot?

You can expect a 12x12-foot average room with 8-foot ceilings to cost $100 to paint, while a 16x16-foot room with 9-foot ceilings could cost around $175. 

To calculate the cost of interior painting per square foot, measure the square footage of wall space and ceiling space of your room. From this, you can estimate the number of gallons of paint needed to cover the wall space and compare it to these figures. You can also ask interior painters near you to provide an estimate before you hire them.

How much does it cost to paint the interior of a house?

Interior house painting costs are calculated on a few key factors. Nationally, interior house painting projects range from $917 (for one room) to $4,893 (for eight rooms). The wide price range indicates how much square footage, paint selection and labor can affect cost. One pro uses a laser to measure each room, subtracting the size of the doors and windows, and then bases the quote on the square footage of the actual surfaces to be painted.

Painters may provide you with savings if you opt to paint your entire home rather than just having one room or an accent wall painted. For example, the average house painting cost for an 8x12 room with 8-foot ceilings is roughly $200, when contractor-grade paint is used. Painting ceilings, baseboards and frames can also affect cost. Pros may charge per linear foot to smooth and paint baseboards.

In one area, pros might charge 50 cents per linear foot to paint baseboards, while pros in another part of the country could charge $1.50 per linear foot for the same task. Painters may charge flat rates for painting door and window frames, with one charging $20-$25 and another $60 per door. Geography and regional costs to do business play a major role in the cost of interior painting. The same painter in a rural region has less to pay in taxes, transportation, insurance and overhead than they would in a major city like New York.

How much do interior painters charge per hour?

You can expect to pay $50 per hour for interior painting. This price will change depending on a number of factors and may range between $30 and $160 per hour. Some factors include the height of the rooms, the complexity of the painting and more.

For an accurate cost estimate, request quotes from local painters and contractors.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost to hire an interior painter ranges between $200-$2,700. Interior painters can tackle everything from complete color makeovers in each of your rooms to touching up an accent wall to painting pieces of furniture. The square footage and complexity of the project, along with the materials needed, are the main factors that will affect cost. Other factors include whether you supply the paint yourself or want the painter to do so, whether you move the furniture and do the prep work or ask them to do it, and whether any repair work is needed on the walls.

Painting the ceiling and the trim will also have an effect on cost. The type of paint you choose can also raise or lower your house painting cost. A gallon of paint may range from $20 to over $100, depending on quality and brand. Ask your painter if they charge per hour or per square foot, and how much you can save by doing prep work (moving furniture, etc.) yourself.

What should I look for when choosing a painter?

When choosing a painter, pay attention to online reviews and ratings. Reviews with pictures are especially valuable, as these showcase the painter’s work. It’s also important to check whether your state requires licenses for painters — if it’s required, your contractor should be able to present their license. 

Finally, compare estimates and quotes from multiple painters near you. Take into consideration what each one guarantees with the job, including factors like higher-quality paint, extensive preparation and a good warranty.

How often should you paint your walls?

You should repaint your home interior once every few years, depending on the condition of the current paint.

Paint on walls fades over time, regardless of the room — it could happen in a bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room or bathroom. However, paint that is exposed to more dirt, particularly flat or matte paint textures, may need repainting more frequently.

Areas of the bathroom or kitchen that routinely get touched may show signs of collecting dirt and grease over time. These would require more frequent painting.

How much value does painting add to a house?

Due to a lack of data available, it’s hard to say whether painting your home’s interior or exterior will increase its value. But there are some important things to keep in mind. 

If you're thinking about selling your home, you might want to repaint areas that look especially worn, dull or chipped so your house looks fresh and new to potential buyers. On the other hand, it’s possible some potential buyers will repaint the home upon moving in. So if you have a limited budget, your money (and time) might be better invested in other types of home projects, such as remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, installing new floors or fixing broken appliances

When in doubt, check with your realtor before making a final decision.

Does a painter need to enter my home?

If you’re hiring an exterior painter, the painter will likely not need to enter your home. But for interior paint jobs, the painter will need to enter your home.

When talking to potential painters, discuss a strategy to make sure you and the painter(s) stay safe while they’re completing the job in your home. Or, you might want to discuss scheduling the paint job at a later date.

Do you tip painters?

Yes, it’s best practice to tip house painters if you’re pleased with their work. Painters perform detailed, skilled work that can last for many years, if not decades. 

Tipping house painters is good etiquette. You can base the tip on the size of the crew, and request the amount to be evenly divided. Or, you can leave a tip based on the size of the job and leave it up to the foreman to decide how it is distributed among the crew. Sometimes — especially with big projects — the painters on the job change during the course of the project, so it’s often customary to leave one tip for the whole job.

Champagne’s Reliable Painting just finished repainting our two bathrooms. The job required that wall paper be removed before the walls could be painted. Which was not an easy job. Corey did an excellent job. Our bathrooms look great. He was very reasonable, courteous, clean, and on time. I will use Champagne Reliable Painting again.

He did not do the painting like he led me to believe during the initial conversation. He sent a painter over to look at the job. His price was way too high initially. But I made an offer and they accepted it and did a very nice job of painting. There was a mixup in paints,but they paid for the replacement psint that was necessary to correct their error. I would use the painter again

I had my kitchen, foyer, stairwell, and trim painted. Overall, I am satisfied with the outcome and the service. Gabriel returned to apply another coat when I contacted him and indicated that I was not satisfied with the final appearance after the paint dried.

Gabriel did a perfect job painting my house. He pays attention to detail from prep work to pressure washing to caulking. His painting was meticulous. He fixed the hardware on my front door and a broken fence, which weren't even part of the contract. I will be hiring him again when I have to paint the interior of my house. He has a wide skill set and was very enjoyable to work with.

Medrano and his employees are nice, however I had to have them come back 3 times to finish painting. It's actually still not done, I have paint on my carpet, and roller fuzz on a few walls. I suppose this is what I get for hiring a stranger from the internet.

Julian did a great job painting a sign for our fraternity. He handled all materials, was responsive to our requests, and got it done in a very timely manner. He's very creative and will help you with the design and provide a rough draft prior to painting. The sign looks great and was reasonably priced. Everybody loves it.

Rolando and crew did a wonderful job painting the exterior of our house! We are very pleased with the work they did, and they are very nice and easy to work with. I could tell they really want to make their customers happy and do the job right! Our house is old (built in 1950) with wood siding so it took a lot of paint. Rolando made sure he stuck with the original estimate even though it actually required more paint than we initially thought. We are very happy and will use his service again in the future if we ever need any work done. Thank you!

I called to set up an estimate with Rolando for painting my kitchen & exterior awning & railings - we set a time for him to come by to view the scope of work. He never showed or called again. A couple weeks later he texted asking if I still needed painting. I responded yes & reminded him of the scope of work. He never responded. I cannot recommend this vendor.
