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.

Ascend Painting did a phenomenal job painting the interior of my home. We called two other painting companies for estimates and Ascend Painting gave us the best quote. We immediately hired James and his crew. They were very precise in prepping and taking care of all the floors and wEre prompt to clean up anything as needed. They are professionals, show up on time, do a fantastic job and deliver high quality work. I am even planning on using them again to paint my mother’s home. I highly recommend Ascend Painting without hesitation. Thank you for the fantastic work!

I hired Nick and crew to paint my new apartment. I had already received a great, professional vibe from Nick since the first time we spoke on the phone, cemented by all the instances he followed up via text with questions, thoughts and concerns about the seemingly simple job at hand. They were early in their arrival, and got to work almost immediately after being let in. Nick had originally budgeted me for 2 days, but was able to complete the job in just one. Now let's talk about the work: Impeccable, professional-level painting throughout the entire apartment. High-quality paint and attention to detail are some of the things that make Stick Construction & Painting a great option for your next project. Not to mention they were all good, trustworthy people. :) I recommend this business and will surely forward their info for friends who are looking for painters!

I hired EM Painting for exterior painting work to our house last month. I don't usually write reviews but this services was beyond any expectations. The workers were prompt and on time every single day and immediately got to work. We have had experiences in the past where it seemed like they kept pushing and delaying to get more money out of it but with EM Painting this was not the case! We are very satisfied with the unbelievable job they did. Our old house looks brand new! They were a phone call away if we ever had any questions or concerns and promptly addressed all our questions. They beat any price we had previously been quoted by several other companies as well. I recommend them to anyone looking to do work on their house, you won't be disappointed!

Great experience and will be hiring them again for my new home updates. You will not be disappointed with them! If I need painting done I will not go anywhere else.

Heather and Steve were NEVER on time. Called off completely one day. Wanted to be paid before job was complete. Paint has started peeling. Say they have 20 years experience, I wouldn't give them 20 minutes of experience. They are messy and you need to watch everything they do "especially Steve" I DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Mike at Pronto Painters did an excellent job redoing our bookcase, walls and trim work. The quality of work is great and Mike worked very hard to insure the finish was something he could be proud of. I knew he was going to do a great job when he said it would take an entire day getting everything prepared, protected, setup and disassembled to paint. Very cautious and diligent when it came to job preparation along with care in reassembly and clean up. He was attentive to detail, respectful of any noise, dust, odors that may have occurred during the process and communicated any issues if they came up. He worked easily around our loud family of children and noise. I felt bad for him at points because of all the children bothering him and asking him questions but he never seemed to mind. Posted below are the three after-job photos and one pre job image. 1. Refinish all existing wooden bookcase/shelves and all cabinet, desk and drawer faces. 2. Prepare and paint over existing textured wallpaper on the walls. 3. Paint existing French doors and all baseboard and window trim. Great, easy to work with. In my opinion, the amount of work he needed to put in had a very high dollar to value return for us. Well worth the money to professionally finish this office.

These guys are great. Requested an estimate on Friday and they completed the job on Monday. My wife and I were shocked at how efficient they were and how great the turnout was. Very fair price, very easy to work with and I would definitely recommend them. They took care of everything from getting the paint, outlet covers, shades, etc and made it extremely easy for us. Thanks guys!

Wilson Painting made my family room look brand new. I asked them if they could install trim in the middle of my wall around the whole room and they did not hesitate. They did a great job. My wife loved the trim idea. I liked how they took their time and did not rush the project. Their work definitely describes what kind of people they are. I will hire again.👍🏼

We received a response from Steve and Heather very quickly which led right into an in person consult just a day or so after. The price was fair and due to an opening in their schedule, they were able to begin the job in a couple days. The paint job in each room was flawless! In addition, they provided helpful insights to our color choices and trim details. It would be our pleasure to work with this company again, and will likely work with them for future projects! Great experience!!!

Jan is an amazing artist and a great person all around. She took on our baby room without any problems. We wanted a more realistic safari/jungle themed baby room and she did a great job coming up with ideas and following my wishes/desires for the room as well. She was willing to meet up with me multiple times before she started the job to bounce around ideas and to go over sketches. She worked with us to make sure the design fit within our budget. She was very flexible with her work schedule to help it work out with my husband and my work schedules. We were running a little behind on getting the base/background paint completed on the walls and she jumped in on her first day to help us finish.The final product turned out even better than I had imagined. She did a mama and baby theme with all the animals. I now enjoy just sitting in our baby room and looking at all the paintings. I would hire Jan again to do other murals in my home.

Roni and his team did a great job with our newly purchased but outdated 3000sqft space. Previous owners were cigarette smokers and Roni did a great job advising us on what needed to be done to ensure the final paint job was pristine and the odor was gone for good. As we went through the process we added more tasks to the list, and they were easy to adapt and work with us to make sure everything was exactly what we wanted. Super fast, super responsive, and super value. Will definitely recommend and use again.
