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.

L&G Contractor was able to meet my deadline and paint seven of my rooms in one day. The painting was well done, the workers polite, careful, and skilled, and the end product beautiful. The quoted price was extremely reasonable and included the paint! Would definitely work with this company again.

David came to give me an estimate for the painting job. About my house: and old house with new walls in the basement. Basement walls were already prepared for the paint but there were some/many imperfections and rest of the house needed preping before paint. I assumed that they will do a quick run on the imperfections and the start the paint job but they just started painting with no preparation. The crew was inexperienced for example they painted my bathrooms with flat paint and when I brought it up David said you had to say it before the paint but it’s a known fact that the bathrooms and the kitchen must be painted with semi-gloss. I even know it and painting is not my job. Same as fixing the imperfections, apparently they wanted me to flag all the problems for them to fix before the paint which is unacceptable. The ceilings were just done with one quote and I could even tell that the paint needs another coat. They asked for portions of money daily and one day they didn’t show up and their phones were disconnected. You can tell how panicked I was because of the money I had already given. Finally when I told them that they have to fix the problems they decided to leave and they were asking for more money! I reasoned with them that if I hire other people they will ask for all the rest of the money so I can’t give them anymore. Thankfully they left in peace but it was getting heated for a little bit because David threatened me to paint my cabinets yellow to undo the horrible paint job that they had done and I responded if he touches them I will call the police. The cabinets were painted lazily. They wanted to spray the paint but they didn’t cover up my newly changed granite. I wouldn’t hire them again and I would not suggest them to anybody else because they are not experienced and they are not committed to fix a messy job that they had done. This caused me alot of headache and wasted 3 weeks my time to find an alternative. In fact I had another team contacted me for this paint job but I decided to give David a try because he showed so eager for the job and I regretted that decision so much.

EJ and his team did a fabulous job painting the trim of my home. This was a very, very challenging job due to heights and the condition of the paint, but EJ and his team met the challenge head on. He was polite, on-time and professional throughout and at a reasonable price. Highly recommend hiring EJ Painting LLC.

We are having our first kid in May and chose to hire C&R to paint two rooms, after a thoughtful walkthrough. We love our home but now it’s truly become “ours” after some amazing painting and customizing work by the painting team. 10/10 would hire again!

Ricardo and his brother painted my bedroom. I provided them the paint label of the color I wanted and they picked up the paint from Home Depot, which was much appreciated. They came on short notice and finished painting the room in one day (walls, ceiling, trim, and doors). They were efficient, attentive to detail, and gave a very competitive price. I highly recommend their work to others looking for painters in the DC area. Thanks, Ricardo!

Horrible experience. Allan Blandon did not sand areas on walls that he patched properly before painting. Lumpy drywall/plaster repair. Sloppy paint job. Refused to return to correct. He ignored calls to schedule his return and he disappeared. If your wall has any imperfections he is certainly not the guy to call to correct them prior to painting.

Pristine seems to be a very professional organization. However, I do nothing the painting is one of its best services. The project manager, who also painted, is highly skilled in air quality and ventilation issues. But the painting services provided was quite poor. I had to point out very clear issues with the job, and even in the end I had to do significant patchwork.
