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.

Kreations Painting is a consonant Profesional. I would highly recommend their services. The owner came out immediately and quoted a fair yet reasonable price for the task at hand. The owner was pressed because I had a very short time line. However, Kreations painting rose to the occasion and totally exceeded expectations. Kreations painting even did things that weren’t asked of them. I can’t stress enough, how much they stepped in and saved the project.

Pedros of pedros house painting did an excellent paint job (including the garage) for our 2 story single family rental property. His team did a very professional & totally satisfactory job at a very reasonable price, within a short turn-around time as promised. Pedros also repaired large holes in dry wall, repaired and re-textured water stained kitchen ceiling, both with very satisfactory results, repaired half broken door frame, repaired window screens. He did great touch ups for some rooms that we decided not to paint. I highly recommend him for painting and repair work around the house, and will re-hire him again for my future projects.

Marvin did a wonderful job painting our kitchen cabinets and staircase banister. He told us he would paint over the over spray in our kitchen but only one out of three spots where theres overspray did he repaint, but I also forgot to mention it because I was so in awe of how everything else looked. He is very responsive thru text and does get the job done. Our kitchen cabinets and banister were previously that gross honey oak color.

My husband and I decided to get hardwood and paint the interior of our house, and as new homeowners we didn't know where to start. We went to different places to see who had the best prices, and all the places we looked at either were ridiculously high, or they didn't take us seriously and just didn't bother to respond. Out of desperation I turned to the Internet and found Mario and Nate. I contacted Nate originally to just give me an estimate, but was blown away at his mannerism and his knowledge of his profession. He informed me that he also does wood flooring and showed me a few of his work and I must say, I liked what I saw. Although more pricier then other painters, their concern for the little details puts them above others. They take pride in what they do, and make sure that you're satisfied with everything before proceeding to the next step. At no fault to them the project is taking awhile longer due to our wood not coming on time, but they were flexible enough to work with my schedule and squeeze me in at any available time they had. They painted the interior of my house, put in wood flooring upstairs and downstairs as well as the stairs, are now building a new mantel piece for my fireplace and a new entertainment system. I wouldn't ask anyone else to do it. Bottom line, hire them. They do more then just paint, and they'll do a much better job at it. Nate is borderline OCD with his work so you know if it's not perfect, he'll fix it to make it perfect. Take my word for it because their work made me fall in love with my house again.
