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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a painter during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to use virtual tools for communication. If you’re hiring local interior and exterior painters, contact them to see if they’ll set up a video call to assess your project. During this call, they can get a feel for what needs to be done and may be able to give you a price quote. 

Discuss potential plans and strategies for getting the work done safely. And ask whether they accept virtual or digital payments.

Marvin, his brother, and their employees were all wonderful. Their bid for our interior paint job--most rooms in the house, including bathroom and kitchen--was incredibly competitive, significantly lower than that of our other contractor who we had already hired to do some other structural work. Marvin was able to accommodate us according to our tight time-frame, so that the painting could be completed and the house deep-cleaned before move-in. They worked incredibly fast but were very proficient, and our other contractor even commented on how good of a job they did. In addition, they were incredibly nice, friendly, and Marvin was very clear and quick to respond to all communications. I highly recommend Marvin and R&D for any interior painting you may have, and will hire them again in the future!

Billy was very responsive, professional, and did a great job painting the interior of my house. He was able to estimate what materials I would need and then offered to go get them himself, which was a huge help. He made sure that he accommodated my schedule, but was able to get the house done much quicker than I had anticipated, and the house looks great. I will use him again for all painting I have in my house.

Julio and his team did an amazing job replacing our carpeted floors with laminate, and also painting the entire interior of the house. We had a tight turnaround time and Julio made it work. He was very responsive, on time, and respectful of our home. Good price for the high quality of work. Would hire him again!

Rogerio and his wife did a great job painting the entire interior of my house. It looks amazing. They were very professional, responsive to texts and questions (communication was very easy), and super attentive to detail - each day they did a walk through of the space to make sure that everything looked good from the day before. Overall it was a great experience. I would totally use them again and have recommended them to my friends and coworkers.

As a Landlord, I used Juan and his crew to turnaround 3 vacant apartments for rental. My initial thought was it was just interior painting as there were some water stain in the ceiling and walls. I'm so glad I chose Juan as he was able to pinpoint and correct plumbing and other issues that would not have been evident to a layman. He could have just simply painted as agreed and finished the job sooner leaving me with unresolved issues down the line; instead, he wanted to do the work right and I'm so grateful for that work ethic. He's reliable, trustworthy, punctual and his price is very reasonable. I would definitely use him again in future projects! HIRE HIM, you won't be disappointed!

I rarely write reviews, however, I thought I owe Iris a great review, as I was quite impressed with the work this company did for us! Iris and her crew did a terrific job of painting interior of our house. They were meticulous, yet very fast and efficient! I was sure I could trust women in many aspects , including attention to details and clean and professional job. Iris and her crew proved my belief to be true. Iris was punctual and communicated her availabilities very well. They were quite reasonable in their charges as well. We were pleased with the results and will hire them again .
