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.

Reviews for Palm Bay painters
Nj J.
Initial consultation was ok. Pricing was competitive. Work done was interior and some exterior paint. Interior paint is where the detail lacked.Ceiling cut in was bad. Paint drippings on the floor. Paint runs. Multiple light spots on walls where there was supposed to be an agreed upon two coats of paint... So unfortunately had to go behind and do touch ups. Exterior painting was good. Interior paint as stated detail was lacking.

Putnam Painting painted my ceilings due to a leak in my roof. I needed 4 ceilings painted plus my kitchen walls. Mike had some extra paint from another job and gave it to me for my kitchen. Brian and Bryon did a great job and Mike paid attention to the details. I would hire them again and recommend them to family and friends.

We hired Ricardo to paint our dining room, living room, kitchen combination with vaulted ceilings. The job came out perfect. He had to cover dark gold paint with light blue, paint the ceilings, the doors and the trim. He stuck with the job until it was perfect. He and his helpers worked to make sure I was absolutely happy with the job before they left. Thank you Rosa. The price was also very, very reasonable. I have more painting to do and I will definitely hire him.

Dave has been incredibly helpful in locating and identifying issues with our home that need to be addressed, as well as preparing to paint the entire exterior. He repaired our ceiling, helped repair a bed, repairing and painting our air conditioning closet, and power-washing the entire exterior of our house, including our lanai (from top to bottom). Dave is doing an incredibly professional job on exterior painting our home, including caulking, repairing cracks, power-washing, priming, and first-rate printing. He worked diligently in matching multiple paint colors and obtaining the best painting materials. It is important to Dave that his clients are happy with his work, and that his reputation maintain its high standards. Anyone using Dave will be thrilled at the jobs he performs.

Mr Washington and his team member did an excellent job diligently painting the inside of my home at a very reasonable price within a very timely manner of a few days. His strong work ethics to do the job to completion with perfection has made me want to hire him and his partner to paint the outside of my house in the very near future. Thank you Washington!

Mark is a talented guy. He did a good job with drywall patching, painting the trim and edging the walls near the ceiling. But, there are a few things we did not like: 1. He originally quoted $80 for trim and wall painting. We asked him to add in some dry wall work after the fact and provide fair price for that. But, he claimed that trim wasnt included in the price, when it was clearly requested in the project. He told us he needed to charge us extra to do the trim. Overall, the price was probably lower than anyone else that we might have picked, but it was obviously he reeled us in with his cheap price and then added on after the fact. 2. He scoffed at having to use the paint Lowe's provided to us. He did not like the fact that he was going to be required to prime the walls first, and then use the paint. We did not intentionally ask for a cheaper paint from Lowes, we took the Valspar that was provided to us. He ended up not using primer and said the paint should cover the existing color in 2 coats. After the two coats, you can still see the exisiting blue that was originally there. When the room doesnt have direct sunlight in it, it looks a bit better and you might not even notice, but we are very disappointed when there is sunlight. Overall, a talented guy who can do many things, but his professionalism could be improved.

Martin and his team showed up on time each day, were polite and professional, did a great job, and cleaned up when they were done. His prices were very fair, lower than some others but a great quality job. He worked with me to accomplish what needed to get done within my budget. He even gave us a discount as a returning customer. Martin kept in touch each day with who was coming and when they would be there. On the day they would be painting and thought the primer fumes would be hard for my elderly mom, he texted me that morning to let me know so I could take her out. Then when the painter was about to spray, he also let me know. Martin even did additional last minute things my mom asked, politely and with a smile, and didn't charge her. He also did a great job putting new doors on an old house, lining them up which is hard to do on old houses. They did a great job renovating the master bed and bath, and finished the front door which my dad had started and never finished. I will definitely be hiring him again for the next project!
