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.

Alvarez pro painting did an excellent job on my exterior residential paint job. They did all aspects as agreed and paid attention to the details. We are very happy with the final product. Highly recommend Alvarez pro painting.

Everything went really well. Alessandro and his team worked hard to please or needs. We had the exterior of our house painted and it is just what we wanted. Alessandro took the time to go over paint and then painting samples for us to see it on our house.

When starting to gather painting quotes I came across Madrid Painting on Thumbtack. Fred the owner quickly responded, came out, and delivered a quote within 24 hours. Fred was easy to communicate with throughout the whole process (thumbtack messages, text, phone). I’d shopped painting quotes about a year ago and Fred’s quote covered everything those did for a much more reasonable price. Our job was extensive — wood rot repair, a huge amount of trim / soffit to paint, detached garage, and painting our deck (and probably lots of other details I’m missing like doors, gutters, etc). Fred and his crew work very hard and fast. Prepping our house took a day and then they were able to knock out the painting in one day. Really impressive when you see all the work involved and how good the finished product looks. Fred and his crew are super nice and I’d recommend Madrid painting to anyone!

Rondah is wonderful!! She painted 2 rooms in our new home prior to move in & totally saved me. We were so busy packing. Knowing the paint was being taken care of eased some of that stress. It really made our new house feel like home the minute we moved in. Thanks again Rondah!

I could not have asked for a better experience than the one I experienced with CF Painting, LLC. From the first meeting to discuss my needs, to the quote and decision to hire - Josh made it clear that my satisfaction was his ultimate goal. He took is time with his home evaluation, explained exactly what we would be doing and why and earned my confidence and trust. He was understanding of an unexpected color change and additional add ons and weather challenges. He responds quickly to all questions and just a pleasure to work with on my exterior. Noah was the gentleman that did most of the paint work - and did really an awesome job. Dedicated to perfection, barely a drop of paint where it shouldn't be, polite, hard worker. All in all - I would rank them greater than 5 stars if I could and will definitely be using again.

I had the exterior of my house painted, my deck stained, a new rail for the porch and a couple other handy man type jobs done. I was extremely happy with everything and thought it was done at a fair price.

They were excellent in their skill level and quality of work. I was extremely impressed with the amount of detail and care they put into painting my den. It could have been a difficult job with an uncommon scheme, but they handled it like real pros! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Jeremy came quickly to give a bid on the bedroom/office I needed painting. Had just had new windows put in and wanted to update and have new color. His bid was by far the best and he worked with 3 different colors including all wood trim. The results were incredible and detailed. Ended up having the ceiling painted also. He worked mom-stop until the job was completed including 2 coats. Have already hired again for other rooms. Trust him completely and enjoyed having him in my home. Helen N W.

Had Joe's crew come out and paint the exterior of my home as well as my shed. He was very professional and went above and beyond while getting the house completed. I was very pleased with the work performed and the timing was a lot quicker than I expected. I would definitely recommend and use Joe's services again.

Very kind guy you feel very comfortable around him. His price was very fair. I will be contacting him in the summer again for the upstairs.

I'll start by saying I expect a lot from contractors I hire. I manage a number of rental properties in JoCo and work with a number of contractors on an on-going basis. With this painting project, Tim and his crew have yet to deliver fully. I'm still waiting on him to hide and seal nail pops throughout which he hasn't done. He's been paid and now I'm told it'll be two weeks? Very unprofessional. I trusted him and feel somewhat taken advantage of. The work that is done is done well. Trouble is, it's not all done. I have another project, worth more than this one, which I made available to TMC Contracting, and Tim said he wanted the job. It'll be hard to give him that work on the basis of where this painting project stands - incomplete.

Fred was amazing to work with. He was extremely fast with coming over to give us a quote and kept me posted on their schedule. He painted all of our trim, doors, crown molding and our walls. The house looks fantastic. He had great communication with me through the process. This was my first time hiring a painter for interior and I would hire him again in a heartbeat. The exterior of my house needs some work and I will be hiring him in the Spring for that.

TMC was quick to respond with an appointment time. The owner himself came out to give the estimate, which was very reasonable in price. I was on their schedule within the week and the job was done within a week. The house looks amazing and the workers cleaned up after themselves. The owner checked up with me every step of the way to make sure I was pleased with the work. Getting my sunroom painted was particularly challenging given all the glass, but the guys were able to get it done with very little delay. When I asked for some touch ups to be done after the workers finished, someone was back within a few hours to make some minors changes. I would highly recommend TMC. I have already scheduled them to do some landscaping work. Trustworthy, professional, prompt and you can’t beat the value.
