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.

Mendez came to my property for a free estimate and completed the work next day. The wall was painted well. My dissatisfaction was the accuracy. I had to remove paint from the adjacent backsplash and walls.

Nelson and his crew did a great job painting and pressure washing our house and deck. They painted the entire interior; walls, doors, stairways and molding. Our deck looks brand new after the pressure wash and paint job. He was responsive to our concerns, on time and flexible. He finished our job before starting another one and was true to his word with the price. We would hire him again. M C, Decatur

I have had our entire home interiors painted at least 4-5 times over the last 20 years by a variety of folks, and this is one of the best interior painting experiences, EVER. Dan Coates, who is the owner of this company, was continuously on-site and personally worked on the project right from the beginning to the very end in making sure that we were happy with every aspect of the job. He worked with us to look through the property in extreme detail to even recommend areas that wouldn't need painting e.g. the ceilings, since that would be an unnecessary expense. Then he helped us pick the best neutral colors based on Top 50 trends. Interestingly, our painting project was right before the holidays in 2017 - Dan and his team worked tirelessly up until the last day before he was to leave town and made sure that the job was completed, and the house was in perfect shape before the holidays. During the job, there were several things that Dan went ahead to repair on his own without even my asking (or knowing). eg. Our garage door had cracks in the caulking which was letting in rain and other elements - I didn't even know this until he showed me that he had thoroughly caulked everything back before painting the garage door. This company has great work ethics and interestingly were also the most competitive on pricing - a rare combination. I can personally vouch for their quality of work, customer service, work ethics and commitment. A+ in all categories. I have given him permission to share any pictures from our interior painting project with his future customers and use me as a reference.

They painted 4 rooms in my house, one with some very tricky trim work, and it looks amazing. They were punctual, hard working, and fairly priced. Would recommend and use again.

I needed the interior walls and trim painted at my rental property. Thumbtack connected me with several painters and after meeting and getting estimates from a few, I chose Hidden Colours. They were easy to work with, provided a fair estimate, and were able to fit me in relatively quickly. My biggest concern was that I wanted the painting done before I had the hardwoods refinished, but I could not arrange the timing to have that happen. Hidden Colours took extra care to make sure that no paint got on the newly done floors, which I am very thankful for. The only "complaint" I have was that it took them a day longer than estimated to complete the work, but as I wasn't in a rush and they were fitting me in, it wasn't a real issue other than being able to let them in on the extra day. Due to my budget, I only had them do part of the house, but I will definitely call them back out to complete the other painting needed.

Eric did a very great job at painting my home. I couldn't ask for a better better experience. He went over and beyond what the job consist of at a reasonable price and for that I totally appreciate him as well as his work ethics. The quality of his work is outstanding and would recommend him for a paint job anytime. Working with Eric was great and he definitely got the job done. This experience was everything that I could ask for and more. Thank You
