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 Fishers painters
Shibaji C.
I am changing the review after 2 months. Chris and his folks did a terrible job painting my kitchen cabinets. Many places the paint is coming off. I can see many places he did not apply primer properly. He did not sand either. He did not provide enough time to dry the primer before painting. I went with a grey and white combination for the paint job. He did not even buy the proper paint. for the white paint he simply used wall paint instead of cabinet paint. I regret hiring this guy.

Beautiful work! Most people thought I got new cabinets as opposed to painting! Original color was tan, and I got them painted white.

We hired Jared to paint our Master bedroom, bathroom and closet. Jared was very responsive and came out right away to evaluate the job, sticking with his original quote. He seemed at first meeting, and turned out to be, very trustworthy. I was comfortable with him being at the house on his own. He did a good job on the project -- all of the painting turned out great. As a bonus, he was even able to get an old paint stain out of the carpet in the closet from when I had tried to paint it a few years ago. I would hire him again.

Denis, David, and Hero, transformed our house, boosting its curb appeal with their detailed and careful painting. Denis was helpful (and patient!) during paint color selection, and he explained each step of the process the day of and answered most of my questions even before I could ask them. We will definitely hire again—and recommend Fresh Coat to friends and neighbors seeking an outstanding painter.

Oscar did a great job for us and was very flexible with days and times that we needed things done. When new handles and hinges didn't work, he painted our old ones and they all look great. Very pleased.

Mark did a great job painting the exterior of my house. He was quick to respond. Once he had the greenlight he moved quickly and communicated with me throughout the process. Now, I have a house that looks like new.

We had a lot of questions that we needed some answers to. Mike did not only answer them, he was 100% honest with us, which is all you can ask for! When we thought we needed to do a full house paint, he told us after looking at it that he didnt think it needed to be totally re-done...He offered us some alternative ideas, recommended paints we should by if we did it ourself, and was just very honest and friendly with us...Thanks so much for your time and professionalism Mike!

Hiring Express Custom Painting was the best decision I ever made for painting every room, including closets, in my new house. Not only were Daniel and his crew friendly and easy to deal with, but they were also professional, hard working and talented. They also completed every task I added to the job after the job already started and finished the job on time. Their prices are also very fair. I made sure to get estimates from several other companies and nobody came close to beating their pricing. I will definitely be hiring them again!

Great experience working with Tidy Painting from initial contact to the final results. Responded quickly to my request for quote and scheduling. Ryan and his son were very friendly and professional & worked quickly. They made sure everything was cleaned up and put back together when the job was done. Looking forward to working with them on a future job.

Keenan and his crew were wonderful. Their price was competitive and their work exceptional. We used them for whole house painting and couldn’t be happier. Keenan went above and beyond as situations arose and never once complained or said anything but positive. Even with all these extras popping up his original quote rose very little. Great guy. Will use again.
