Sonia definitely has a gift when it comes to interior design. She is wonderful at helping you figure out your style and making your vision a reality. In our office, we started with a picture. It is an old 16x20 framed picture of my grandfather and his two brothers in the Navy. I showed her the picture and told her it would be the most important part of the room so no matter what we did this picture had to fit in somewhere. We couldn’t love our office more. We haven’t changed a thing in any of the rooms she helped us with over the past four years other than having to rearrange the office to fit in a piano. I walk around our house and there are so many stories within the details. I had brought home this clock that I loved. I thought it would work in the office but it didn’t. I showed it to Sonia and told her how disappointed I was that it wouldn’t work. She responded, “I know exactly where you can hang it”. She walked over and held it up on a wall in between our kitchen/dining area and it was perfect. I found a picture at Bed Bath and Beyond that I loved but it was way too large for our entryway. I sent her a picture of it. She said to buy it and hang it in the upstairs hallway. It looks amazing!!. We had been on the hunt for a rug for our front door/entryway/office area. We couldn’t find anything. I saw this rug online with all the right colors but it looked terrible. Just being silly, I sent her a picture of it and she replied with “YES”. I appeased her and ordered it knowing as soon as it got here I would be returning it. It is gorgeous and couldn’t be anymore perfect!! She has the ability to be able to look at something and know right away it won’t work. Other things might get a “maybe” or a “let’s try it” but there are so many times that she just knows instantly it is a “yes”. We couldn’t find a rug for our dining room table. One day she was out shopping and said she found the perfect rug. The rug she found pulls the entire room together. I am sure you can tell that we have thoroughly enjoyed working with Sonia on all of our room transformations and will continue to do so in the rooms we haven’t tackled yet.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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 does a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225

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 $200 to $2,500. 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.
