Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How long does it take to paint a room?

The length of time it takes to paint a room varies, depending on a couple of factors. For example, the size of the job makes a difference. With a small bedroom, or with only a wall or two that have to be painted, the job can be done in half a day. Larger jobs take longer.

Also, if there are several different colors being used, the job may take longer, as one may have to dry before the other is applied. A 12-by-12 room with one color may take a morning. With multiple colors, the job may stretch into the afternoon.

Before you hire an interior painter near you, ask them how long it will take to paint the room(s) in your home.

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.

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.

Should you wash walls before painting?

Yes, in most cases you’ll want to clean your wall before painters start. Washing walls before painting helps get rid of dirt and grime that could affect how the paint adheres, including primer. You can do this using a wall washer, especially if the top of the wall is hard to reach. 

The best way to clean walls is to use a solvent that won’t affect the surface underneath. Some experts recommend using a sponge, warm water and/or a mild detergent or soap. Abrasive washing may remove some of the current pain.

Cleaning painted walls should be done with care. If you’re not comfortable with washing the walls yourself, consider hiring a house cleaner near you.

I must say I am very impressed with the work, professionalism and responsiveness. I was going to go with another contractor but when Mr. Ramos came and gave his estimate I really liked his methodology. I could tell her new his stuff. Painted the interior of my home, living room, kitchen, dining area and hallway. Started about 830am and finished about 3pm. I will be hiring again to paint the rooms. Thank you Ramos Painting!!🙏🏾😀

I would highly recommend Power Painting as Stephan and his team did an excellent interior painting job in my home. He is very detail oriented, repaired my walls, refixed someone else’s sloppy work, painted, cleaned up each day, moved my furniture, rehung pictures and went above and beyond with additional requests to ensure we were 100% happy with the work. He is polite, punctual and professional in nature. His price was competitive and we received a top quality job. Thank you for an easy pleasant experience!

Karen and 360 saved my bacon when I was in need of interior paint to get my house prepped for sale in very short order. Karen was very responsive to come out for the quote. The interior quote was good and fair. As the job progressed, I added several more requirements and ultimately, exterior paint as well. Karen took this all in stride and in good humor. She also provided helpful opinions on request. The cost was the same for white baseboards or for all the same color. She even sorted out a bathroom grout issue I had, finding a guy well below my other quotes. Overall, I was pleased with 360, just what I needed! Thank you, Karen and crew!

The job entailed painting ceilings, kitchen, living, dining and bedroom, interior doors and frames. The team showed up on time, everyone was diligent, respectful and paid attention to detail. Clean-up was efficient. I would hire Fabian Lewis and his crew in a heartbeat. Pricing was competitive, and theven overall service was outstanding. The company owner lives the notion of 'lagniappe' - gives something extra.

Mako Carpentry completed the interior painting of my condo. It ended up turning into a larger job than we initially thought it was because of wall paper removal. Throughout the entire process, they went above and beyond to make the space like new. They were affordable, professional, and I enjoyed working with them. I have recommended them to friends and neighbors who are looking to get work done, and plan on working with them in the future.

These are real professionals. Hired them for popcorn removal, ceiling skim coating, and repainting the entire interior of my house. Communicating with Bryan was a breeze. They arrived punctually on our start date and got straight to work. The quality of the work was really high. But even more important than that is how easy they were to work with. This has been really hard to find in Miami. Overall, would recommend to anyone and I won’t be going anywhere else for a painting job. Make sure to check out their Instagram for examples of their great work.

If you're in need of a quality painter for an extremely fair price, Lorenzo is for you. He quickly responded to my initial outreach and scheduled a walk through to provide us with an estimate. He brought paint color samples to discuss options and talked us through how his team would handle the job. We scheduled full exterior and interior painting. The week before he came, an electrician came and had left a number of holes in the wall from his installation with poor patchwork. We gave Lorenzo the heads up, and he arrived without concern and was able to handle the correction of all patchwork with ease. This was honestly the most impressive part given the texture of our walls. His execution of the painting was perfect, we have zero complaints. His team was very friendly and they left the house exactly as they found it once the job was done. We highly recommend Lorenzo!!

I can’t say enough how happy I am to have found this gentleman! I pulled quotes from other places and he beat them all. From the first appointment I had to the very last day of the project, he was very professional, friendly and on time. I was extremely surprised at how well the project was managed from start to end! I had him paint my interior walls kitchen, bathrooms, and baseboards. The quoting process was friendly, quick and detailed. I love that I had someone checking in with me almost daily on the process and the he was on time every day. I also love that he didn’t “assume” what to do on minor items that we maybe forgot to discuss, and they would always reach out to me to ask what direction I wanted to go in. It’s hard to come by a vendor that feels so put together as this one and the communication can’t be beat. I will definitely be bragging about to everyone I know and am already thinking of other projects I have that I’ll be calling him for! He was very professional, helpful, and finished the job on schedule. The project was done quickly and in a very neat fashion. He exceeded our expectations with quick communication, execution, skill, and affordable pricing! Thank you so much. You made a dream of mine come true!
