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.

Jan with Cardinal Painting was great. He responded immediately to my request for a quote and came back with extremely reasonable pricing. He painted the whole house - ceilings, walls, doors and trim. His work was very professional and he left the house spotless. He even painted the baseboards in the AC closet (an added bonus). I would definitely use him again.

I am just in love with my newly painted house. Mike's team came early, were professional, recommended quality paint, and made it an experience that was well worth every penny. We plan on bringing them back for more work later and recommend this company to our friends.

Jake, Anthony, and Bethany and team are responsive and quicky follow up on matters. My garage walls were in bad shape before the team fixed the holes, rough edges, etc. and painted to look new again. Also they painted my porch floor an awesome color. Thank you

I’m more than satisfied with Elegant Painting. Jake was a pleasure to work with. He took care of a few concerns I had immediately and was very conscientious to make sure I was happy. He uses the best paint, cleaned everything up to my satisfaction. I highly recommend him.

Overall good job. Price fair. Had entire house painted. They forgot the kitchen - not sure how, but they came back the next day and painted [1 coat, not 2 coats and still forgot the window sill area]. Disappointed they didn't put up drape rods as agreed upon [nor did they return to put up as they are ensured].

I accidently deactivated my thumbtack account, called customer service, reactivated it, changed my password and finally got back to this review page all to leave this review – that is how impressed we are with Project Painting and specifically Patricio. That account fiasco alone is enough for most people to get how happy we are with their service, but I will go into a bit more detail just to drive my point home. We contacted a few painters for a quick deadline project for our mother-in-law’s house that was soon to close. We had a quote, a plan, and a date with Project Painting in under 2 hours, and they were onsite to her place in Melbourne within the week. Her house is not huge, but they had it taped, small holes patched, and painted in less than a day – including trim, walls, doors, and closets. The quote we received included paint, but our mother-in-law picked a paint type that Project Painters would have needed to change the price for, but Patricio told us that the paint store he normally uses was having a sell for non-business customers. Ultimately, we saved 40% on the paint due to the sell, and we were able to work with Patricio to adjust the quote to account for us purchasing the paint. The team was on time for the day of the painting. They were nice, professional, quick, and went out of their way to please what can only be described as a “picky” mother-in-law. I can tell you if I was in their shoes, I would have been hard pressed to be as nice and accommodating as they were, and we will certainly be recommending them to anyone we know needs a painter. Bottom line, they were on-time, at budget, professional, extremely thorough, well-priced, accurately estimated their time to completion, and just a perfect experience. But don’t take my word for it, you can read any of their reviews and see we are not a special case – they are just a great company.

Mike and his crew did an awesome job painting the interior of my house. No detail too small and no detail overlooked. They went above and beyond just painting. My new lights and fans were installed and repairs made. Brian and Brian showed up on time and were so professional. I will use Putnam again and will refer to family and friends.

Putnam Painting and Pressure Washing did a phenomenal job for us. We recently moved to the Melbourne area and decided the investment we wanted to make is to have our home professionally painted. The job is now done and we could not be more pleased. Mike and team are truly committed to doing a great job with a lot of care and they constantly strive to go the extra mile. Beyond doing a great job painting Mike helped me put storm shutters up before the storm and would continually take extra time to explain what he was doing to help us as we go forward. Very rare to find a complete team of conscientious hard working people committed to more than satisfying their customers. Putnam Painting has this rare quality and I could not recommend them more.

I’m very pleased with Rolando’s work ethic and painting skills. He called me right away after inquiring about painting services. He did as promised: came for an estimate and started right away. His work is quality and he is very pleasant. I feel I got excellent value for my money and would use him again.

Mike and his crew were terrific. They helped with paint selection moved all my furniture and did a top-knotch painting job. Perfect lines. They took all the blinds and shelves down before painting and left the house clean and in good order every day. Mike even helped us build shelves, hang pictures, and even put my husband's scooter carrier together. Unbelievable! I would highly recommend them to do your next paining project. They know what they're doing and they price the job right. Excellent service, they did everything they said they would, and more.

Mike Bowes was an exceptional professional that went beyond the call to complete a complete home interior paint including ceilings crown molding walls in a record two days. He accommodated our special needs using paint friendly to a pulmonary patient. We would recommend Mike without reservation. He did what he said, when he said he would do it.

Luiz and his team did a superior job exterior painting our house. Luiz made sure we were happy with all the work to the end. They accommodated all our requests for touch ups and also went above and beyond by painting our landscape borders for free to match the body of the house. We love the way our house looks and very grateful for their quality of work and professionalism. Great company and team, they deserve 5 stars for sure ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We recently moved to Florida and our new home needed a lot of TLC. Mike and his fantastic crew, Chris, Brian, and Matt, made our home beautiful! They painted a 3500 square foot interior which included 18 foot cathedral ceilings. The trim work and doors were expertly painted with high-gloss white and the walls were finished with a beautiful satin gloss. All A/C ceiling vents were removed, cleaned and painted before replacing -- again this was on 18 foot ceilings! They texture coated the walls on two large bedrooms, hallway, and bath with 10 foot ceilings, fixed the crown molding, installed shoe molding, and installed new ceiling fans in the bedrooms. This crew installed new vanities with sinks, lighting, bi-fold doors, hung mirrors, and new toilets in two bathrooms. They hung four chandeliers that required expert care and attention -- all beautiful!! They painted the outside pool patio ceiling, hung a new exterior ceiling fan and two outside pendant lights. I cannot recommend Mike and his crew at Putnam Painting enough! They were prompt to arrive at the worksite every morning and stayed until the required work was done at the end of the day. They were extremely conscientious in keeping the work site clean and were professional and courteous in our home. Their attention to detail and pride of work was excellent. I am so glad that I hired Mike and his crew at Putnam Painting and have no hesitation in giving them an OUTSTANDING review for a job well done! Thanks Mike, Chris, Brian, and Matt!
