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.

Special Projects Plus painted the interior of my home. They painted all the walls, ceilings, and trim. We are living in the house and this presented challenges to my family members and the workers. They were very patient and flexible and worked well with us to make sure the job was done as quickly as possible. They first sent in a team of cleaners to make sure the walls were clean, the cob webs were removed, and everything was ready for painting. After the painting was complete, they sent in another cleaning crew who worked hard to get my house back into a state that it had not been for many years. The paint job was excellent! I recommend them to anyone. This company knows what they are doing. Very committed to customer satisfaction.

Marvin Wallace and his crew were OUTSTANDING in every category. We had them paint the entire interior of our home, and are so thrilled with the results. First of all, they did a great job on the painting itself and protected all the contents of our rooms perfectly. They were prompt, reliable, and professional...and also friendly! We had them painting in our home while we were out of town. We had full confidence and trust to leave our home and our project in their care, and they went above and beyond to communicate with us to report on the progress while we were away...including video chat updates, which we greatly appreciated. We would recommend Wallace Pro Paints to a friend in a heartbeat, and plan on hiring them again for future painting jobs!

Chris and his team repaired and stained our two tier deck and pergola which was in pretty bad shape. They were always on time, they respected our time and our personal space and they did a great job. If we had any questions or concerns they were immediately address and resolve to our satisfaction. I would not hesitate to recommend Vals' Brush Painting and Chris for any outdoor painting project. We will be calling them next spring to paint our house for sure.

I'm a 30+ year experienced Denver Realtor and needed to find a new painter because the ones I knew had retired or left the business. I contacted 3 painters to obtain an interior painting estimate for a vacant 1363 sq ft house which needed interior paint. The Walls were marred and baseboards damaged due to Wheelchair occupancy. Michael of Redwood Construction was one of 2 painters that showed up in person to look at the house and gave me a quote. The other one just gave a quote over thumbtack. I called Michael on a Monday, he came out the same day and gave me a very reasonable estimate compared to the other two. I hired him on Tuesday. He Scheduled me in for Saturday and since my seller was in a rush Michael used additional painters to make sure the painting was quickly done and ready to place on the market for sale. Michael and his painting crew did an excellant job from Painting prep, actual painting to clean up. They made sure floors were properly covered so no spills on the carpet or wood floors, Tied back curtins , removed and replaced a few mirrors on the walls and/or covered necessary window area as well as filled in obvious wall nail/picture hook holes so the walls were smoothly painted. The finished product was perfect. I even showed my wife who has seen many homes and she remarked "a top notch painting job" She said: Wished I had something that needed painting, I would hire Michael in a New York Minute! Michael Did tell me there are other contractor services he offers that will help me when prepping future homes for sale. Michael and his company Redwood Construction is now one of my perferred go to contractors if I need anything done prior to marketing and selling a home as well as personal painting when I need painting services.
