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.

Veterans Paint Co. assisted me with finishing a painting job. The owner did quality, affordable work in a timely manner. I will contact him again for any future painting needs and would recommend the company for painting needs.

Nikity Painting did a great job on our coach. Paula was very easy to get in contact with and responded to calls, texts and emails promptly. Power washing took a few hours, the priming and painting took two days. The guys doing the painting were very careful and cleaned everything up. I would highly recommend Nikity Painting.

I cannot say enough about this company! They showed up on time and made quick work of painting the exterior of my house. Their painting skills are SUPERB (no runs or overlapping paint anywhere) and even my husband (who used to paint houses) was impressed! Aurelia the manager gave us a good price & even did a walk thru afterwards to check the work & make sure that we were satisfied! I will definitely be using them again for future painting needs!

Erik painted my living room walls and tray ceiling in the living room. I was immediately impressed with Erik when he came to my home to give me an estimate on the ceiling with paint all over his clothes. He looked like a painter, not a sales person and that's a plus with me. He had his portfolio with him, samples of paint treatments in the colors I said I had in mind for the room (in our initial email talk) and paint chips in every color imaginable. Erik is friendly, easy to talk with and he knows what he's talking about! Erik Schlake is not just a guy who can paint a wall, he is an artist. He knows paint, color, technique, and is very comfortable in guiding his client toward making a decision that she is happy with. He spent 3 days meticulously preparing and painting my walls and ceiling. He was very concerned that I liked every step of what he was doing. He doesn't just show up and slap the paint on the wall, he applies it with precision and knowledge of his product and it's proper application. Erik painted the most gorgeous finish on my tray ceiling, one that is unique to my home only and that coordinates beautifully with the bold wall color I decided upon. It's a true conversation piece. The end result is worthy of a photo spread in a Home magazine, it's truly beautiful. I highly recommend Erik, he is a true artist/painter/finisher. Give him a call right away so you can get on his schedule, as he is usually scheduled a month out. I was so happy with his work on my living room that I didn't let him leave without getting on his schedule to have him paint my kitchen next month. And I'm already thinking about colors for phase 3 of his work. I'm so glad he answered my request, I expected a painter but instead, I got a true professional artist. Thank you, Erik! Annie Kitzman

Was very satisfied with the overall result of Nikity painting. Price was in line with other quotes we had received. Paula was very responsive when I had questions and it was done when she said it would be done.

I started my guest bathroom painting project and realized just how much I didn’t want to finish it. I reached out to Eleazar and within 48 hrs he was here. It was perfect. Took my walks from a weird purple to something much more neutral just in time for the holidays and visits from my family. Can’t thank him enough!

Did an excellent job painting exterior of house, making our windows water tight and even made us 2 awnings!! He went above and beyond what we could have expected. Frank has a great personality and never did we feel like there was an intruder as so often happens with having a job done. I would recommend him readily.
