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.

Just painted one room, but the high ceilings were a little tricky. Zee did a very good job, showed up on time, was professional and neat. I would recommend him to others.

We hired coco’s painting a few weeks ago to have the exterior of our home painted. We had some termite damage that we knew would need repair. After power washing there was more damage exposed than we originally thought. Carlos (Coco’s owner) was FANTASTIC! And his crew was the best we’ve ever worked with. The workmanship is amongst the best of anything we’ve had done to our home - and believe me, we’ve done it all. They were in the job site every day by 8:00 am without fail, and worked tirelessly a full day, everyday. I really can’t say enough good things ga about Carlos and his team. And there aren’t enough stars to review him as he deserves. If you want a fantastic experience and an end result that will have you overjoyed, by all means, hire Coco’s Painting! It doesn’t get any better than this!!!!

5 stars all-around. Great to communicate with, beautifully completed work and punctual. The price was also a great value plus he did it on a Saturday which was best for our business needs. I definitely recommend Jerry and he will be our go-to guy for painting and other services in the future.

My backyard is all used brick. I recently had an in ground jacuzzi removed which left an area of plain red cement that wasn't covered by the above ground spa. Matt PAINTED IN brick in this area and you can hardly tell that it's not real brick. He also painted a beautiful tree on a large blank wall in the backyard. It is exactly what I wanted. His price was very reasonable and he gave me pictures of exactly what the art would look like for my approval before starting. I can't tell you how very happy and impressed I was/am with Matt. I would highly recommend him.

Allyson Wong painted a muraled wall for my first grandchild's playroom - a scene from Peter Pan that is so incredible, I'm over the moon with excitement and the prospect of creating memories to last a lifetime! Allyson far exceeded my expectations. She is incredible! Thank you a million times over!!!

Richard was fantastic to work with. He was very prompt and thorough with communication, his team arrived when they said they would, and they completed our projects quickly and to our satisfaction. They were even able to tack on an extra job I had and worked over the weekend to complete it. The price was fair and we're very happy with our newly painted cinder block walls and catio! We're saving their contact info because we'll certainly hire them for future projects.
