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.

First Call Painting has been fantastic to work with. They were able to accommodate our timeline (which was very important since I’m in my third trimester) and painting requests. Austin is incredibly responsive and very efficient. Our project is huge (cabinets and all interior walls painted), and he brought in a wonderful team to help him complete the project. We are a few days away from finishing the project and I will add pictures to my review once complete. His attention to detail and quality are fabulous. I highly, highly, highly suggest calling First Call Painting and working with Austin.

I had 2 painters cancel on me while I was in the process of moving out of my condo. Pedros House Painting was prompt with their response and was able to paint my black wall quickly and efficiently. I will be using them again and recommending to friends & family.

We hired Kreations to paint the inside of my garage. He was prompt in his responses and was able to arrive the next day for the job. He also gave me recommendations for paint which was helpful. We were really happy with his work and would hire again !

Blair was a great person to hire for painting our kitchen and bathroom cabinets. He was responsive to every detail of the project and was always on time and always pleasant to work with. He is a true craftsman and multi-tasker, and he takes pride in the quality of whatever job he is working on. He cleans up each day, and he does what he promises without complaining. Our 21-year-old cabinets look brand new and are now complete with hinges and handles. Our kitchen has a fresh coat of paint, along with a few doors. We love the outcome of this project and appreciate the reasonable price Blair offered. We will use Blair Painting in the future and would highly recommend him for any painting project.

Great experience! They painted my vacant condo and did a phenomenal job. My perfectionist husband who complains about EVERYTHING had nothing bad to say. They had a very reasonable price, was easy to contact, and completed the job SO FAST!! Best paint company I’ve worked with thus far. Thank you thank you!!

I was in the market for a regular bedroom paint job. Was quoted ridiculous prices from all the companies around town with wait times up to 5 weeks. Fortunately, I was recommended Thumbtack and decided to give it a shot. I reached out to some local painters, including Kreations Painting. They reached out immediately and said they were available the next day and at nearly half the price as the big companies in town! I was thrilled! Terrance came out and did a fantastic job! He went above and beyond what I asked for, and was very professional. Highly recommended for anyone that needs a quality paint job. My room looks incredible and I’m super thankful. Thanks again, Terrance!

I'm so glad that I decided to use Mario's services! We recently purchased our home and some of the paint colors (golden yellow!) needed updating. He and his team arrived on time, didn't cut any corners, protected everything (including removal of window treatments and putting them back up), were professional and friendly, and were done within a few hours! I am so pleased with the job that when I hire painters again, I will definitely use the Marz Painting Company.

Ludin did a superb job doing the final detail and touch up painting to complete a long remodel process. He was my third painter used and was the best. He did a final coat and straightened all of the lines. Everything looks great and so glad to be done with the remodel. I would recommend him definitely.

Austin did an EXCELLENT job amongst an extremely difficult job. I had an entire house remodel with the scheduling all screwed up due to no availability. I had NO choice but to have painting first, kitchen counter/backsplash and then brand new floors last. Completely backwards. Not only did he go above and beyond to make me happy, he even cleaned up other contractors messes and he called & alerted me when they made a serious error. I would hire him again in an instant! I have insane expectations and he was a 10/10!

Mario and his crew did an absolutely excellent job on our house. We purchased a house in Rocklin that had been a rental for about four years and had a lot of work to be done. One great thing about his work is that he does repair work on the surfaces as well. There were numerous horrible patch jobs from the previous owners that he touched up. Also many areas with damage to walls and corners that he made look like new. His attention to detail is obvious and you can tell that he takes a lot of pride in his work. All at a very reasonable price too! Mario does a great job keeping open communication with his customers. He always made himself available any time we had a question for him, and if he had any question at all about how we wanted some detail taken care of he didn't assume anything but he called us to make sure he took care of it exactly how we wanted it. We will have movers coming in tomorrow. Mario said to let him know when the moving is all done, so he can come and touch up the walls and staircase in case there are any scuff marks and damage from the move, even though we already paid him! I highly recommend Marz Painting Company, and would absolutely use them again. 5 stars!
