Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How long does it take to paint a room?

The length of time it takes to paint a room varies, depending on a couple of factors. For example, the size of the job makes a difference. With a small bedroom, or with only a wall or two that have to be painted, the job can be done in half a day. Larger jobs take longer.

Also, if there are several different colors being used, the job may take longer, as one may have to dry before the other is applied. A 12-by-12 room with one color may take a morning. With multiple colors, the job may stretch into the afternoon.

Before you hire an interior painter near you, ask them how long it will take to paint the room(s) in your home.

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.

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.

Should you wash walls before painting?

Yes, in most cases you’ll want to clean your wall before painters start. Washing walls before painting helps get rid of dirt and grime that could affect how the paint adheres, including primer. You can do this using a wall washer, especially if the top of the wall is hard to reach. 

The best way to clean walls is to use a solvent that won’t affect the surface underneath. Some experts recommend using a sponge, warm water and/or a mild detergent or soap. Abrasive washing may remove some of the current pain.

Cleaning painted walls should be done with care. If you’re not comfortable with washing the walls yourself, consider hiring a house cleaner near you.

Alma's Painting did a fantastic job on my home, a 2 story 4 bedroom home with vaulted ceilings. They painted the entire interior of the home for a reasonable price, finished within a reasonable time, and kept the lines of communication open from quote to finish. The quality of the work itself was top notch! It is my pleasure to recommend Alma's Painting for your painting needs.

Jose and his partner did a fantastic job painting the entire interior of my home. They moved the furniture away from the walls for me, painted one room at a time so our lives weren't disrupted, we're very careful about not getting paint on the flooring and were very meticulous painting throughout my home. I would recommend them to family and friends.

We hired Ivan to paint the interior walls and baseboards of our house. He quoted a competitive rate and even helped us get paint at a discounted price. He and his team did an excellent job and completed the task in just 3 days. We would hire Ivan again for painting the exterior of our house soon.

J & J Painting responded to our inquiry to paint the interior of our first new home. They came to our house the following day to give us a quote and started painting once we got the keys. They completed entire interior painting of our kitchen, living room, hallways, master bed & bath, laundry room and doors in 3 days and job was done excellent. Both Efrain and Jaime were friendly, professional, cleaned up the place professionally and were priced fairly. I would highly recommend them to someone looking for work on their home and I would surely hire them again for future projects.

We are very pleased with the interior painting service we received from ANSA Painting! Communication was excellent, and the process of scheduling a site visit, receiving an estimate, modifying the contract, selecting paint, scheduling, the painting itself, and follow-up were all seamless. The team arrived promptly each morning, followed paint color and sheen scheme instructions for each room, and completed all work promptly with very little oversight. We were very impressed with ANSA Painting, will use them for any of our future painting projects, and highly recommend them to anyone!

We had the pleasure of having “The Best Painters LLC” paint the interior bottom floor of our house. They did a wonderful job. We were so nervous about having someone paint for us. We have never hired a painting company before. Wow was I impressed. They were on time, polite, and did an outstanding job. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for painters.

I have used Edwin twice for interior painting and will utilize him again and again for any of my painting needs. He is by far the best painter I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Very responsive and reasonably priced. He is a perfectionist, yet gets the job done quickly. I will recommend him to anyone looking for a painter.

Working with the Best painters LLC was so easy going. They were punctual, honest, and did a great job on the project. I had the interior of my home painted and some vinyl flooring placed into my master bathroom and both projects turned out great! Will definitely book in the future.

Jose was perfect! Professional, friendly and provided a comfortable work atmosphere in our home. He was flexible with us and took the extra time to provide paint samples and give us time to choose our colors. Jose offered to come back and touch up our paint after the movers move our stuff into the house, just in case anything gets scuffed. He is very courteous & friendly, as is his crew. He took the time to make sure each room was prepped by removing all of the switch/plug plates and did an outstanding job with the paint. Very happy with his work and will be referring him to others as well as calling him for future paint needs, both interior and exterior.

Valdez did an amazing job. He was very professional took the extra time to do the job right and it showed. He was also less than half the price of the other quotes I received. He didn’t try upselling me on anything either. Cleaned up thoroughly once he was done. I would recommend him to anyone for interior painting!!!

Very good job considering the quick time it took to paint the entire interior of the home. There were 2 painters plus Noel and it took less than 2 days for our 2000 sqft house. We wanted everything painted and dried before we moved in. They didn't tape all the trim or remove the switch plates like other professional painters might, but we were surprised to see very few mistakes and clean lines nonetheless. Also we gave a lot of instructions to Noel about accent walls and finishes, and everything was done correctly the first time. Great communication as well.

Jose, along with his helpers, Daniel and Hector have done an amazing job on our 2300 sq. ft house. They painted the whole interior within 2 days and that included 2 accent walls and a 50-50 divided pattern on the hallway walls. They are very professional and I have seen them coat twice (sometimes thrice) just because "they" weren't happy with the result. Overall I am very happy to have hired Jose for the job and I would do it again and would highly recommend him.

I would recommend Jose and his crew to anyone. Jose exceeded our expectations. He and his crew did an outstanding job matching our interior paint colors, and recommending colors and finishes that will best match our house. His attention to detail really shows in his quality of work. Once the job was finished, he took his time to answer questions, demonstrated how to properly touch up other areas and how to properly store paint. Jose was very professional and his flexibility to complete the job within the given timeline, while exceeding our expectations were greatly appreciated. You know a pro when you find one, we sure found one and will definitely use his services in the future. If you are looking for someone that does professional work at very reasonable rates, he is your guy. Thanks Jose!

Albert and his team painted the entire interior of my home (walls, ceilings, trim, doors). They did an excellent job! Albert was very quick to respond to any texts/emails I had with questions. His team showed up on time, everyone was very friendly and professional and took great care of my home ensuring everything was covered and taped properly in order to protect my carpet and furniture. I am very meticulous and couldn't be happier with their attention to detail. My home looks wonderful! The work was completed on time and within budget. It is very clear Albert's #1 priority is customer service! Thank you so much, Albert and team!
