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 hired Quality VIP to paint the inside and outside of 3 exterior doors on my home, as well as some interior touch up painting and ceiling painting. They did an excellent job, and Elbert and his team were incredibly professional and kind. The quote and price for the job was very reasonably considering the level of hard work and dedication to perfection. These are now my go to painters in the area. Thanks again Elbert!

Ranyert did an exceptional job painting the interior of our house. Once we saw the quality of his work, we negotiated a price to add on additional painting that we had planned to do ourselves. While he was painting we discovered that our gutters needed cleaning and we hired him to do that too (and he repaired one of the gutters at no additional cost!). He is prompt, hardworking, and trustworthy. His price was fair and reasonable. We will hire him again in the future!

It was great working with Paula throughout the process of painting our home. We had several people come out to give us quotes and not only was hers the best, she could get the project done the fastest. Some quotes we got were for only one coat of paint and the caulking of windows and sealing of cracks would be extra. Not with Nikity; the price was for 2 coats of paint and before they painted they pressure washed the entire house, recaulked all of our windows and sealed the cracks. She was also very generous in providing us samples of all of the colors that we liked - which was at least 7-9 colors. Would recommend to anyone looking to repaint their home!

Beyond pleased with Juan! He was beyond Professional. I never used Thumbtack before, he called me within 15 minutes and was here 45 min later for estimate. Pricing was perfect and 3 days later after holiday, he picked up paint and and got the job done! He does exceptional work, with care and pride, not rushed and really pleased with the rooms he painted. I will have him return in a few weeks to paint bedroom. I give him 10 stars! Couldn’t be happier!

I originally wrote a review for this young man first 3 days on the job, which was an excellent review. Cody was great to work with and sufficient up until after the first week of being on the job painting. Second week, noticing something he hired were sketchy. I believe one of them do do you think drugs. Tell man who we thought was high on something slopped paint everywhere, he actually had to redo several walls back-and-forth. What a waste of time and paint. Cody did fire him after. But, there continue to be more sketchy guys coming in the home. It you came 3/4 weeks later painting still not completed. Since we live in Indiana, we trusted him to come into our home and finish the painting to satisfaction. After another two weeks my husband showed up at our home in Florida, and cabinets were not up to satisfaction. White cabinets had dried up drips from the paint that had to be sanded down and repainted. The lower cabinets had scuff marks and scratches all over them. The room set that we had him paint had painting on the ceiling and on the trim. We had to hire someone else to touch up 3 of the 5 rooms and all cabinets. At first I thought this gentleman was sincere and had pictures to show me of other jobs that look to perfection. I do apologize for reviewing this service three days into the job. I should've waited until the job is complete. Which, the job was never complete we let the gentleman go after paying him a lot of money.

Mark was a true professional. He scheduled my job, showed up on time and did a wonderful job. We had crackle paint to cover up, wall paper to remove and a house to paint. He finished on time and on budget. I love, love, love using him and will again. Green before, Grey after ❤️❤️❤️

I had a water leak causing considerable damage in my condo and contacted Quality VIP Multi-Services. They replaced over 50 feet of baseboards, painted the kitchen, pantry and laundry room. I was so pleased with their work, I decided to have them paint two bathrooms. I highly recommend Elber Vamondes and his very capable crew.

Mark was a true professional! He not only was competent and skilled, but what a nice guy! After painting our wall, he noticed that we had a problem with our paint color, so I had to go to Lowe’s while he waited to complete our job. He repainted parts of several walls to fix the issues. We will definitely hire him for our next job!
