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.

Antonio did a great job painting three rooms in my home. He started on time and worked steadily until he was finished. He patched nail holes and everything looks brand new! And, I will hire him again to paint the outside of my home.

I hired Ellen to paint a very tall canvas to hang inside the elevator shaft in my home. Because of the subject matter and the trickiness of painting it so as to be visible in the rightway during the elevator cab ride, it was not an easy task. She produced a wonderful result. She spent far more time painting it than her fee might have dictated. She was very intent on making sure we were on the same page at every step. Extremely professional.

Dawn did an absolutely wonderful job for us painting a mural in our spare bedroom. She was very professional and timely in scheduling the work and then showing up as promised. She painted a perfect replica of an old beach poster that we selected. She changed a few things to make it fit with our other art and painted a beautiful piece of work. We love it and would not hesitate to use her again and will recommend her to our friends. Dawn is a very creative person and is very professional

William painted two rooms: living and dining. He was on time, extremely meticulous and did a job that was beyond good. I'm having him back to do more paint work soon. Your search should stop here. William is not only great at what he does...but he's a great man.

Jesus and his crew were great. I had a long list of rooms to be painted and popcorn ceilings to be removed. They came in and tackled the tasks so quickly. Someone was always here before we left for work and someone always stayed until we got home. The ceilings look great, you can never tell that there was popcorn there. The paint lines are clean. Jesus went with my crazy paint colors and all worked out perfect. He even made a few suggestions along the way that turned out brilliant. The price value was fair, he even threw in painting a few doors for me at the last second. Very professional. Jesus was also super quick to respond via text or call. Always asked questions to make sure we were on the same page. Highly recommend him and his crew. I’m sure we will see them again.

I hired this company to paint stripes for an accent wall. It did take a little longer than expected to complete the work, however I like my wall.

Ernesto and the entire team was great. They delivered the exact job that we discussed and when I had trouble getting payment to them because I was out of town and on the East coast when the job was completed, they were understanding and patient when I explained that I had to wait for the bank to open the next morning. This paint job was done during a very difficult time in my life…my family and I were moving across the country and the whole Tinguis Painting team took such good care of what we needed done. I appreciate them doing such an excellent job and most importantly, I appreciate it being such a stress free experience! Thanks again Ernesto and thanks to all of the Tinguis Painting Pro team!

We hired Vladen to paint two bedrooms, and he was excellent! He came to our home for a free consultation and was flexible in scheduling a day to paint both rooms. Pricing was more than fair, and he did a great job ensuring everything was properly protected and set-up. We both work from home, and he was able to quickly and independently complete the job while we were working. He is a joy to chat with, and we are so pleased with how it turned out. Would definitely hire him again!

Jimmy did such an amazing job on our house. Every square inch of the interior needed to be painted or stained, he was so helpful in working with us to determine paint colors and other decisions that needed to be made. We had asked Jimmy to paint our 70 year old cabinets and replace with new hardware which we had already purchased. He made the cabinets look brand new and even had to alter the shape of the cabinet doors to fit the new hinges. The final result turned out amazing. He also fixed and added new moulding where it was needed. Jimmy was able to tackle ever hurdle and make everything look brand new. Throughout the whole project Jimmy kept me informed with progress and timeline. We couldn’t be happier with how our house turned out. I highly recommend his services!!

Gustavo was very prompt both days. And he and his guys cleaned the space beautifully when they finished. I live in an old apt - all the wood surfaces needed to be sanded first before painting - which he did very well. I would hire him again!
