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.

Vittal S.
Very poor work quality and poor professionalism. Left paint cans in my trash cans. Paint is seen as lumps on many cabinets. No proper sanding was done prior to Paiting and existing cabinet cushions were not taken out prior to painting.

Bruno and his crew at Opus Painting did a stellar job painting the exterior of our house. They were always punctual and professional. Bruno made sure we were 100% satisfied upon finishing the job.- and the finished product was excellent. I am a realtor and property investor and I will definitely use Opus Painting again for other projects. I highly recommend them!

I had several bids out for interior painting for my home project and Isaac had the most reasonable price of them all. I was doing a renovation for my home and he painted the entire interior of my home to the exact specifications I requested. From accent walls to painting my cabinets in my bathroom to painting my stone fireplace, everything was done w/ quality. This was a big renovation with many unexpected issues so I asked Isaac to add/change/modify many things during the middle of the project. He was always flexible and agreeable in adding any changes I requested. I was really satisfied w/ the work and it turned out better than I expected. We communicated frequently whether it was phone, email or text on updates. Isaac was a true professional. I will be using Isaac again for painting my exterior and referring him to anyone else that needs painting work.

I had been looking for someone to do a few paint touch ups after construction work, with painting a few walls and moldings, Stair risers and Garage Epoxy flooring. Kenny gave me a very good estimate on the work and did a really good job on the assigned work. I gave him some extra things on top as well later including a power wash. He is a professional and a responsive fellow. A few of my friends and neighbors already gave him more work checking out mine. Will definitely have him over again for other paint jobs.

Douglas and Leonardo did an exceptional job with painting my kid’s room. They were punctual, professional, dedicated and thorough. Most importantly they were proud of their work which I believe is the true sign of a craftsman. Douglas was helpful in selecting paint, quantify and guiding me through the process. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and I highly recommend Douglas and team. Thank you.

Carlos and his team are excellent. We had them paint the entire interior of our 2100 sq ft house in San Ramon with designer colors. It took them about a week to complete. They show up ontime or even a little early, they stay late, they work hard and do a great job. All of his team are very polite and professional and a pleasure to have in the house. I highly recommend Panda Painting and would use them again.

Alan and his crew did an excellent painting job in our home. They took time to get many samples and made sure we have all the choices before starting the job. They were very accommodating in our request to complete the job sooner yet without compromise in quality. Special thanks to Benjamin, Junior and Serge in Alan's team who took real care in every detail. They were also reasonable in they quote.

We dont hv words to describe Santiego. Through professional, punctual, very reasonable priced and top of that extremely accommodating & amazing job. We got all kitchen cabinets repainted in white color. The deatils he had put in to cover and color is commendable. We could not hv asked for a better painter. We are already booking him for our rental home as well as painting outside of home. Highly highly recommend him. Very genuine! Unlike other contractors whom worked with in recent past.

I can’t say enough about the experience that we had with church and sons! These guys came in and knocked out the best paint job that I feel would’ve taken me four years to complete! They did it in two days, one day ahead of schedule. Their ability to replace trim wood, and make the house look brand new was second to none. These guys will give you a breath of fresh air if you’ve ever worked with contractors. Honestly, they are the new gold standard! Thank you Jeff and you to your amazing crew!!! Btw, price was on point and best price out of 5 quotes!!!
