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.

I needed some painting done on a few interior closets in the home and I received an immediate response from Alex. He was here the next day and went to work. The paint job was fantastic and we were very satisfied. I would strongly recommend A+M Solutions for any paint job.

2400 sq ft house interior painting. We had about 7-9 different colors for various walls and rooms. Hebert and his crew were absolutely awesome. Very careful in prepping everything. I had several small and medium\large areas to drywall patch and texture before painting, which they took care of easily. Knowing where the holes were, I can't find any trace of them. Hebert is staying in my address book as the first person to call for my next painting adventure.

My mother in laws wanted her house painted and there was a company in the neighborhood painting a few houses. I called them for an estimate. After 2 calls from me they finally responded and came by for an estimate. The estimate was not detailed and didn't include doors, patio cover and fences. I was put off to say the least. I've had great success on Thumbtack and did my search. I landed on Everlasting Painting....thank goodness. We called and they answered. We scheduled the estimate and they were there on time. The estimate took 30-40 minutes and was so detailed. Picture were taken to be included in the estimate. The estimate was very detailed and complete. The price was very competitive and included everything we wanted that wasn't included in the previous estimate. The quality of the job was outstanding. Matthew was terrific and delivered on his promises made. The attention to detail was very high. I'm picky for clean lines and no overspray. Needless to say we are more than pleased and the house looks terrific. Look no further than Everlasting Painting. The crew was respectful and always wanted to make sure we were happy. Great service and quality. Thanks.

A very nice young man did the work. Very pleasant person. He arrived half an hour late but that was okay. I felt that the work quality was good but would have been better if he had taken time to patch holes rather than just paint over them. The corners were chipped and still are. More detail was needed for the cost which was too high for what was done.

I commissioned Cori to paint a mural of Mammoth Mountain as a tribute/memorial to colleague and friend that lost his battle to cancer. Cori made the whole process very simple and smooth for a project that was very personal to me. Cori was great in her responsiveness and very flexible in her availability. The mural covered a 26'x6' area and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of work in the short amount of time it took. Tremendous value! I highly recommend Cori for your mural projects.

Terry is not only a professional but a gentleman. He came and gave me a price when he said he would be their. I had six contractors give me a price and to say they where all on time would be a farce. I had my house repipe so I had apx 32 holes in the walls and ceilings. All the holes were repaired and textured before Terry arrived. I chose Terry over the other contractors and I am glad I did. After he primed my ceilings and painted them he was not satisfied with the out come. He retextured my entire ceiling and repainted it. It turned out fantastic. He repainted the entire down stairs including laundry, bath room ,hall and family room. I could not be happier with the outcome. I would and have recommended him to my friends and family. By the way call him MR. T

I had some very bad experiences with some of the companies I had quote me on painting our house. Mostly from extremely disrespectful and high pressure salesmen. Carlo was a breath of fresh air. He is professional, straightforward and communicates very well. Carlo did exactly what I wanted which was "Here's what we're gonna do, here's why it's a good idea, here's the time frame. I'll charge you a reasonable price" SurePro actually cost far less than the quotes I had from other high end painters, which was a feather in my cap. The painters that actually came out to do the work were courteous and unobtrusive. Their quality of work was top notch and they completed the work in the time frame given (there were some weather delays and Thanksgiving was also in there). After having dealt with MANY different contractors since owning my home, SurePro was by far the easiest and most reasonable to work with. Highly recommended.
