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.

Very good guy, but not ready to handle to large exterior painting. We ended up just hiring him to pressure wash our brick and had somebody else come paint the exterior of the house. His sub contractors are not professional at all.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this company! We had the entire interior of our house painted, minus 1 bathroom and they did an excellent job and very timely. The whole job was completed in 2 days, I will never use anyone else for painting other than Prime Key Renovations and you shouldn’t either!

Mr Frady hand painted my house so it saved me money for the paint cost. He was extremely honest about the problems outside my home with the gutters and a broken window. He was able to repair and replace those items and at a fair price. I didn't have an issue on time line, so he was able to be very thorough. I am using him to replace my french doors next week!

This company was very easy to work with. I needed my downstairs ceiling painted and I gave Nate a call on a Friday evening. He got back to me that night and scheduled for s painter to come out on Monday. Nate was able to work around my schedule and we were able to work out a fair price for the work. Nate sent Ray to come paint my ceiling. Ray was wonderful to have working in my home. When he entered, he noticed I was not wearing shoes in my house. He proceeded to remove his shoes as well as to not drag anything into that house. This said a lot to me. Ray did a great job. He was very friendly and very professional. He triple checked for any imperfections and said he would be willing to come back if he had made a mistake anywhere that we didn’t initially catch. Ray was very clean and cleaned up any little mistake or drop. He even touched up a few spots on my wall with my existing paint — one area where he had dropped paint an other areas that weren’t his to fix. Very attentive to detail and willing to do anything to get the job right. I really appreciate the hard work.

SM Painting exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Carlos and his crew did a great job and were very flexible working around my schedule. It was a great experience also because their attitude was to do a good job even if it took longer. Being that my house is old, they encounter obstacles but they always found a solution and they never tried to take shortcuts to solve them. I will hire them again and will recommend without hesitation.

I hired Joshua to paint the entry way stairs in my house. They were old, scratched, and outdated! After setting up an appointment, he arrived on time, made several suggestions and wrote a proposal/contract before leaving. We had excellent communication throughout the job, and he performed his reasonably priced work in a thoroughly professional, competent and efficient manner. He went beyond the specifics of the contract to ensure a fully satisfactory result, and made several helpful suggestions. It was a pleasure to have him and his assistant in my house for this work. I enthusiastically recommend him, and have no reservations about hiring him in the future.

After painter’s (Edgar, Prime Key Renovations), completed the interior paint job in my home in August 2020 a walkthrough was done with the contractor (Josh Hedgepeth), owner of Prime Key Renovations Residential Contractors, LLC. Multiple issues were found including two of the homeowners items were broken. Also blue paint tape was used to show the imperfections Per Mr. Hedgpeth the painters would come back and fix the errors. Painter’s did not return to fixed the issues. Months later the homeowner (Tasha Young) contacted Mr Hedgpeth, Josh and he stated he would talk to Edgar (painter) and figure out what could be done. Again, homeowner (Tasha Young) emailed Josh, then called and Josh stated he would talk to his employee Edgar (painter). Homeowner (Tasha Young) spoke to Edgar, the painter and he stated he never talked to the contractor regarding this issue. Painter (Edgar) suggested homeowner contact the contractor. After several emails and phone calls were made, Yet, no work has been done to the homeowner’s satisfaction. This has been back and forth with blaming each other regarding the responsibility and zero issues have been done. The company states they take pride in doing an excellent job in an efficient manner but this company is unprofessional, lack communication skills, and display poor customer service. This is unacceptable and I would not recommend Prime Key Renovations to anyone or allow them to paint my dog house. Next, I will contact BBB because this company shouldn’t be operating.

We called Rene, using Thumbtack, after having a nightmare of a Craigslist experience, trying to get our foyer and living room painted. Not only did he exceed our expectations in punctuality, presence, and quality, but Rene was also competitive in price. He went the extra mile, from patching and preparing previous drywall damage, to touching up the trim for a cleaner look. Since we were active in the house throughout the day, we would often ask random questions or strike up conversation. Rene is really personable and relatable. It's obvious that Rene takes a lot of pride in his work, and he made it clear that we should point out anything that required touching up while he was there. He even suggested that, because of the lighting, we might notice some places that needed touching up once the sun came back out. He assured us that, since we weren't a far drive, he'd come back one time to fix anything - free of charge. We didn't need to, though, as we didn't find any spots in the new light. On the way out the door, Rene spotted leaves bunched up in my gutter,and asked if we wanted him to set his ladder up and pull them out. We refused to let him spend any more time with us, because his kids were waiting on him for a family trip to see Christmas lights. We'll be happy to call Rene for future needs as well as recommend him to friends that need painting services. We received true, A+ service, and we're happy that we now, "know a guy."
