Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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 long does it take to paint a room?

The length of time it takes to paint a room varies, depending on a couple of factors. For example, the size of the job makes a difference. With a small bedroom, or with only a wall or two that have to be painted, the job can be done in half a day. Larger jobs take longer.

Also, if there are several different colors being used, the job may take longer, as one may have to dry before the other is applied. A 12-by-12 room with one color may take a morning. With multiple colors, the job may stretch into the afternoon.

Before you hire an interior painter near you, ask them how long it will take to paint the room(s) in your home.

Clear communication, great follow up, on time and on budget! It was a pleasure having Michael paint a large room in my house. It was a difficult room to paint and he did an outstanding job. I contacted Micheal on a Thursday and the job was completed with in five days. I highly recommend him.

Michael responded on short notice before a move and worked hard to meet the timeline. The first room was exceptional. The rest was missing prep and there is paint on our ceilings (which he offered to fix if we bought ceiling paint). He's inconsistent with his quoting and does not meet the timelines (feels like he takes on more work than can be achieved). Be very specific about whether materials are included and when he will be there. Our friends used him for painting and are struggling with him not showing up as committed as well. Nice guy though!

Strong Women Painting provided outstanding work in my home. Great service was provided through the job. I was consistently impressed by their painting skills, their care for my home and cleanup, and how well they communicated when they would arrive and be completed. I will recommend these women, this business over and over again. I am so thankful I chose them.

Ali was amazing. He totally transformed our house from the clean lines on the accent wall to the newly painted cabinets (changing them from oak to white). During Ali's time here I was also painting some of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Ali offered help and advice when I asked, and even took the time to help show me how to repair some drywall tape that was bubbling. 10 out of 10 would hire Ali again!

I had this company paint five different rooms and they all came out great. The team was very professional and courteous. I will be rehiring them in the future to finish the rest of the rooms once we decide on colors.

Everything worked out great. I feel good recommending them to friends and family. They showed up when they said they would. They did the paint job as if it was their own house and the price was more than fair. I wish all home projects went this well.

We had the majority of 2 floors repainted by JMC...we hired them to do some skimcoating in two rooms where the walls needed a bit of repair and here, they did a great job. The structure of the walls look so much better. As far as the painting goes, I found the work to be somewhat sloppy. Although they claim they did 2 coats or trim, in a lot of areas I can still see the old color shining through. There was not a whole lot of attention to detail. After they were done, I found countless errors. Although they were willing to "fix" the errors, some of them were not fixed and the work felt really rushed. Paint got all over our newly finished floors and I had to scrub paint off areas like doorknobs and windows. Although they did a quick sweep of the floors with some sort of wet swiffer type thing, the floors were still incredibly dirty. These painters were always on time and very friendly, but I am frustrated after having paid so much money and now feeling like I have to personally do a lot of touch up work.

Roland and his men did an excellent job on my living room and hallway. They were all professional, on time and courteous. My job needed a lot of prep work and it was all done professionally. I couldn't be happier and I would recommend him to any one looking for an amazing paint job. I will use him again.

Adirson was great. He was extremely professional and respectful of our home the entire time. We wanted to have our interior painted in advance to Thanksgiving and Adirson was able to make that happen with limited time! He and his counterpart worked quickly to get things done (3 days in fact). There are a few areas that I feel were reflective of the quick work, however, with his competitive rates and openness about timing it was well worth it. I would recommended Adirson to any family or friend.

Luis and his team were fantastic. Professional, great communication, and quality work. Every day, Luis texted me to let me know what time his team would be here the next morning. His team arrived promptly and worked hard, while being sensitive to noise as mostly everybody is working from home right now. There were days, in fact, that I didn’t even know they were there! I should also mention that any interaction I did have with the team, they were extremely pleasant and friendly. In terms of the work, wow! I have an old house that needed my new deck and porch painted, but railings and window trims also needed to be painted and those were old with lots of prep work that needed to be done before hand. It looked awful before I hired Ciriaco. But once Luis and his team were done, it was like I was looking at a different house! Amazing work. It’s very rare to find Home repair companies that provide you a quote and tell you what they are going to do, follow through, and then go above and beyond to ensure that you are satisfied with the finished product. Ciriaco treat your job like they are working on their own house. Highly recommend. And I will definitely be calling Luis again when it comes time for future jobs!
