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.

Most of the paint job was done well. I do feel like the job was rushed and certain areas could have been done even better.

Alan and his team arrived early for our mid-size painting job. They took our entire 1st floor, which included the living and dining room, kitchen, powder room and hallway, from a drab dark beige to a light crisp grey. They were extremely kind, clean and efficient. I've contracted them for the 2nd level in the fall :). Thanks guys!!

Matt and his crew painted my 4000 sq foot house and installed vinyl plank flooring. Their original estimate was competitive, but you should make sure that the material prices in the estimate match the quality of the products that you plan to put in your home. What originated as a reasonable and competitive estimate ended up doubling...mostly because of my taste. However, I selected them partially due to price and didn’t realize that the materials I would actually want would cost three times more than his bid. He also quoted me low on the paint job and only included “some ceilings”. I got other bids that were in the same price range and included everything. There were some other hiccups along the way, but at the end of the day, the final outcome is beautiful. Matt and his crew are honest and hard working and I plan to hire them again in the future for bathroom floor installation.

I was very happy with the work done by Nora's crew. The job was started and completed on time. The few changes I requested were handled easily. Unfortunately, I don't like the color I chose for the bedrooms...but I chose it and can only blame myself. I have a few projects coming up and plan to use Golden Painting Services for those. I do recommend them. Thanks, Nora. It was a pleasure doing business with you!!!

New Morning is the best contractor we have ever worked with. We hired them to paint our very large, very tall home and the quality of their work was outstanding. Usually when dealing with a contractor there is some stress involved, in dealing with New Morning there was zero stress. Everything they do from giving a quote, scheduling the job, performing the job and finally the billing is so well thought out and easy that we were amazed. Their pricing is very competitive, the crew was punctual, responsive and most importantly professional. If we could give them 10 stars we would!

Marvin and Adam were great to work with. Marvin came out and gave me an estimate in less than 12 hours from the time I placed the order for the job. I explained to him that I had movers coming to move my things in my new home in 48hrs so I needed a quick turnaround on job completion. He had his foreman, Adam, at the site ready to work very quickly. The work they did was fast and BEAUTIFUL! They took the time to hear my needs and offered their professional opinion to help ensure the rooms were cohesive and aesthetically pleasing. In addition to them doing a great paint job, Adam even installed all of my light fixtures. The work was great and their professionalism was incomparable. I'd definitely use these guys again.
