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.

Shawn was very responsive to my project of painting interior doors. Within a week I had him over to look over the project and to paint. Very pleased with his work and would highly recommend him.

Amazing job painting my wall. Only needed an accent wall painted and I recieved a bunch of quotes up to $600 for one wall! He did it for me for way less and was punctual and the wall looks great. Thanks!

wow! We cannot say enough about our positive experience working with Chris. He is great! We had our our whole house painted (interior) and Chris was easy to work with and professional throughout the entire process. He arrived on time to give us our initial quote and worked with us under somewhat difficult circumstances (for him). We live out of the area and had to text him paint colors, could not meet him in person, arrange for a key, etc. I actually gave him the wrong paint color (totally my mistake) and he stopped work immediately and helped us figure out a solution (which involved him having to return a second day and pick up a different color paint). He is reliable, trustworthy and dealt with my in laws and parents who were helping organize the project with great patience:). He is a genuinely nice guy who delivers a quality product. Our home looks great with a fresh coat of paint! I highly recommend chris and would not hesitate to call on him again!

Tim was friendly, professional and thorough. He responded quickly in coming out to give us an estimate and in starting the job. He also met us to pick out the paint color, made sure we ordered the correct amount, and transported the paint to the house. His rates were very reasonable, and we were very satisfied with his work. We would hire him again.

I found Mr. Pedro’s Ad in Thumbtack, Gave him a call to come over and see how much would he charge me to paint my kitchen cabinets, once he came by and looked that it and he gave me a good price to paint them, so I agreed to it ! And I wanted it to be legit, so they give me a year warranty and they are licensed too ! And my kitchen Cabinets look amazing after the job was done ! I will definitely recommend them to my friends and family members !

My family and I were lucky enough to work with John yesterday to paint a mural for our daughters room. He is a great guy, with incredible talent and the painting came out better than we could have imagined! I wish you gave more than 5 stars as your max rating, because he truly deserves more than that! He's very professional, fun, personable and really has a lot of passion for what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for mural work.

Shawn and his crew were amazing from start to finish. What should have been a simple job for them, painting the exterior that had new siding, turned into a series of complications and set backs caused by the contractor who installed the siding. During those five weeks Shawn was extremely understanding of my unfortunate situation with the building contractor and he was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure my home had no loose ends left behind by the person who installed my siding. His prices are extremely reasonable, even when we had to expand the scope of work to include extra work that the builder left undone. Shawn and his crew take pride in their work and take great care of their customers. Had they not been covered in paint when they completed the job I would have hugged them!

Jake was a true professional in every sense. He was true to what he told me he was going to do. He did a fantastic job on my patio cement. He was very communicative with everything he was going to do. I would highly recommend Jake to anybody that needs painting. He made sure that I was totally happy with the job when finished. And offered to come back if I found something wrong. You just don’t find that from anybody anymore. Jake keep up the good work.
