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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Plant City painters

M N Painting did a beautiful job on my dining room and several new doors. They even painted surfaces that obviously needed trim paint that I had not asked them to and did not charge an additional fee! One very old metal door had a little problem with the paint drying (in the heat in my garage and Marlon promptly returned to correct the issue which was not related to anything he did or did not do.) I plan to paint the outside of my home once I receive HOA permission and I will be using M N Painting. I appreciate an honest, reliable person who is proud of his company and wants the customer to be completely happy! Definitely recommend M N Painting!

I spoke with several companies before choosing Francisco to paint our house. Francisco was by far the most professional and prepared to tackle our job. Not only did his team handle the normal items of painting the house, but he went above and beyond working with us to choose the right colors. I would recommend Francisco and his team to anyone looking to have painting done right the first time. Bryan

The workmanship of this company is horrible, promise you the moon to get the job and delivers crap. My cabinet paint is peeling off of the kitchen cabinets, there are still.nail holes every where not patched. Over spray on the hard wood floors. If you want a quality painter, this isn't your guy or company.

Ernesto did an amazing job on my painting project. His attention to detail is so important. He was very careful and left nothing for me to clean up. He arrived each day at the time he said he would be here. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a professional job at a reasonable price. Way to go Ernesto!

Gregg spent time before the project painting the mural in a computer application that he could share with me. He sent multiple iterations of the picture so I had choices of content and colors. Once the choice was made, the image came alive before my eyes as he worked. It was an extremely positive experience and I know I will enjoy his work for many years to come. I would hire Gregg again in a moment!

Steve is such an amazing worker! He worked hard, diligently, gave a fair pricing quote! He was able to help me pressure wash and paint my historic home in Plant City, FL. Start to finish it took about a week- there was A LOT of trim and woodwork involved- all with extreme humidity and rain at the drop of a hat. The house looks amazing and he was extremely kind and helpful through the entire process. He even helped me create a closet with some spare wood scraps. A true 5/5!!

I can’t say enough great things about Junior & his employees! I hired him to paint my whole house because he offered a fair price & gave me the most options to cut cost! They did an outstanding job! Their professionalism was superb; within the work, punctuality, respectfulness & attention to detail! He asked for my approval throughout & was eager to please. They went above & beyond by first dusting all areas & cleaning up after themselves. I would definitely hire them again & have already recommended them to multiple people.
