Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

Great work painting my garage walls and ceiling. They fixed many drywall holes, sanded joint work that was done by previous painter. Suyanne and her husband were very professional, punctual, responsive to my needs and always kept me informed about any extra material needed to get this project done. As a courtesy they even painted couple of shelves on my request. These guys went above and beyond my expectations and for a reasonable price. I will highly recommend them for any paint needs in your house.

Jamie was simply great. He painted our kitchen cabinets white, installed a subway tile backsplash, and installed a few light fixtures. The difference in our kitchen is remarkable! Jamie removed the cabinet doors and painted those offsite, which kept our garage clean. He sprays the paint (no rollers) and I believe he did 4 coats. It is nearly impossible to tell the cabinets were actually painted! No streaks or uneven lines! I am a real estate agent and see thousands of homes, so I am extra critical. Jamie's work exceeded my expectations! The few cosmetic issues we saw, Jamie corrected right away. He listened to our concerns and made adjustments to to the original backsplash plan and suggested a few ideas such as extending the backsplash to the ceiling above the sink. His pricing was very competitive. We received 4 quotes and his price was one of the lowest. His experience and quick communication is why we chose him over the lower quote; and we are glad we did! We will use Jamie for any other projects. Before and after photos below!

Veras Construction was great to work with. They painted several rooms in my house including a 2 story foyer and changed a large chandelier. They arrived on time, finished ahead of expected, did an excellent job, and even went out and purchased lightbulbs for the new fixture. Would definitely recommend.

Danny and his team did a wonderful job. His quote was reasonable. He and his team were on time and the works was done well not rushed and the rooms were returned to the original state after the work was completed. I would recommend Danny and his team for your next painting need.

High quality work at fair price. Quick response and turn around time. Arrived on time and couldn’t be happier with the finished result. After the first job of painting and replacing all interior doors, I hired them in to do a bathroom remodel (tile) and drywall installation. Will be posting pics of the finished results soon!

We would give 6 stars if we could. John was quick to respond to messages, showed up on time and did a great job. His pricing was very competitive. We just bought this house and have plenty more rooms to paint. We will be calling and hiring him again soon along with referring him to friends and family.

A Plus Decorating did a fantastic job on our painting project. Chano was great to work with. Project needed major prep work as we had extensive cracks in our drywall. Chano’s team knew exactly what needed to be done and how to do it. They did a great job carefully covering and protecting furniture and floors as well as a thorough cleanup. Our rooms turned out great! I’m very fussy and have an eye for detail. We would definitely hire A Plus Decorating again for our next project.
