Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

I can't say enough great things about Coram Painting! Firstly, he is an excellent painter. I had a large area to paint with very tall ceilings and he did a great job! He was prompt, courteous and a great value. I will definitely be hiring him for any future painting needs. Can't recommend him enough. Thank you!

These guys did a top notch job painting the house. They had a very competitive bid and did not ask for a penny until the job was completely done and not until after I inspected their job. If I ever have to paint a house again, I would go straight to them and skip all the other bids.

We hired Uriel Painting to paint 3 bedroom & his work is wonderful! He is easy to work with, efficient and clean! He taped everything off, filled every hole& caulked all the windows. He is great and I wish we found him earlier! We have already referred him to family looking for a painter.

Excellent! Darwin communicates well with where he is at with the project, pricing and projected finish time. His work is great and as a real estate professional will recommend him to friends and clients. His prices are reasonable and he uses quality products. Darwin did interior painting, replaced baseboard which included staining and cutting it to fit in a home that has rounded walls, and painted an outside deck. We will absolutely use his services again as needed.

They showed up on time every day through the 6 day process and were very careful with our newly installed flooring. Two of our bathrooms and some patches on our walls needed texture work and they did a fantastic job with that as well. They even helped me chase down my run away dog! Lol! But seriously I would definitely use Val's Brush painting services again and would recommend them to anyone looking to get any painting done.

Phillip was very professional, prompt with responding to my inquiry & very honest with me when I had questions. I needed two small sections of wood accents repainted on the front of my house & was clueless about the process. He honestly answered my questions, recommended the best type of paint for the current weather conditions. I was also very impressed with his promptness, hard to find these days. The quality of the job is excellent, he removed the old pieces of paint, sanded it down & applied the new. It looks great! Nothing could have gone better with my experience, I would highly recommend him.

It was a pleasure working with Jason and his son Tyler. Jason - the owner - was very accommodating when a color we chose didn't look on the wall like the paint sample. I love the color we ended up with! All around it was a good experience. I highly recommend Birds Eye View.

Joe’s a good dude and did quality work painting the exterior of our house. He started early every morning and did all of the work on his own. I couldn’t believe how high he climbed on the ladder! The cost to add another color was a bit high, but it was worth it. He did rush some toward the end of the job, but he came back and fixed what he missed. I would definitely hire him again.

We are more than satisfied with Mike and his crew. Our house looks amazing and he went far above and beyond for us. He made a point to let us know that he would not consider this job finished until we were happy. He was so easy to talk too so that any worries or concerns were never uncomfortable to talk about. We will absolutely reach out to him when we are ready for our next painting project. Thank you again Mike everything!!!

Colin was an absolute pleasure to work with. He sticks to his estimates, he cares a great deal about doing high quality work and his communication throughout the project is spot on. At some point when you’re reviewing estimates, you go with who you trust and the people who you have good rapport with. Colin and his team were those people and I was impressed with how well they patched the drywall damage my previous dog left. I cannot even tell there ever was damage. Most of all they were so kind and easy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone with an interior paint job big or small, without question.
