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.

To anyone looking for a Paint Contractor, these guys are awesome! Solomon and Nate are Great Communicators, Punctual, Professional, and very Courteous. Hired to Paint the Trim on our Remodel... they did an amazing job! Filled Nail Holes, Sanded, Caulked all Edges, and Painted a Smooth Finish. Not only that, they cleaned up afterwards to the point you'd never know they were there. Highly Recommend... we will be definitely using them again on Future Projects around the House!

I needed a small paint project completed. Only 2 out of 6 contractors responded that were reasonable. Since I had already started the project and am familiar with painting, I had a genral idea what was needed. I was finally given a reasonable quote and time frame. What made a difference for me was the timeliness and communication. Thank you so much! I would definitely recommend!

Bob did an amazing job painting our foyer with 18 ft ceilings. He showed up on time, was professional and extremely reasonable with his price. Out of the 3 quotes we had he was not only the best price but also the only one who said he could do it in a day. He was even kind enough to add on a small area around our basement steps after he finished the foyer for a reasonable fee. I highly recommend Bob for any painting needs!

This was a very bad experience. They did not fix nail pops as a normal painter would. I was told I needed new drywall on a 7 year old house. They watered down my premium paint, had brush marks around all door jambs and windows, and I was told that you will always have brush marks around doors and windows. He was going to have them work on it, but as we were going through the issues, he said "keep the job" , so I was stuck with repairing all of these issues, and all of my premium paint was watered down by his workers that I had to repurchase to get the coverage. He apologized, but the way his workers treated my home was unacceptable. They trashed my bathroom, and my personal painting tools are no where to be found. I think Fred is an okay guy, but his workers are working without him a good amount of time. We are still working to fix this issues. I would pay a bit more, to not have to deal with these issues.

We had an excellent experience with Bob. We had the entire interior of our house painted before we moved in. He was always on time. Took care of every detail, gave recommendations, and completed the project quickly as we had a tight time frame. I would definitely recommend him!

Rhonda is a pleasure to work with. She is extremely responsive and flexible to work with. I had to propose multiple times to complete a paint job on our basement and she was flexible enough to make those times work. She provided great value and completed the job in a very professional manner. Her work is very quality. I would definitely recommend her to friends, family, or anyone on this site.

We hired Fred to paint the exterior of our home and are very pleased with the results! He was quick to respond to all questions and finished our job in 5 days, including wood rot repair, power washing, and caulk. He also made sure we were happy with everything and fixed anything we weren't happy with. All of the workers were friendly and we were comfortable having them at our house.

These guys know their stuff! Dave and his crew did an amazing job with my house. They worked hard and fixed cracks, painted my ceiling and repaired a seam that was there and now it looks perfect. They do great work and are happy to take a second or third look at the job they've done, just to make sure you are happy with it. I had only 1 issue left to deal with but I am sure they will take care of it! They have done everything I have asked of them. I even added some rooms, and they took it in stride. With their pricing, I was able to do that so I am very happy with how everything turned out and I got stuff done I didn't think I'd be able to. I was unable to load pictures, but he has some and will show them to you. He also has references and is a total professional. That's how he got my business!!
