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.

Touch of Paint was terrific to work with!

I had a few services performed including painting my siding, staining my deck, painting aluminum awnings and painting my two exterior doors. Blue Star did a quality job at a reasonable price which was exactly what I was looking for in a painting company. They accommodated most last minute requests and were quick and efficient without delays in the entire process.

Had a wonderful experience with Bella painting. Just moved to the area, bought a new house so we wanted some rooms painted fairly quickly. Tony got right to work and painted everyday (including sat and sun) until the job was done! Hard worker and very reliable! Thanks Tony and crew!!

I can't say enough good things about the Touch of Paint crew. They responded immediately to all correspondence and showed up on time for both the estimate and the work. Great value for the painting they did and we couldn't be happier. They even game me some painting supplies so I could do another area of the house myself that I didn't request they paint. All around great experience and our place looks great. Highly recommend!!!

I have had several homes and had painting done in each of them an no one did as nice of a job as Roni - he was responsive - did the job quickly and to perfection. His work was the best I have seen. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is looking to have painting done to reach out to USA Construction and Painting.

Roy & Paul Painting re-did a bedroom in my house this past September. I'm so pleased with the work. They had to sand and re-mud prior to painting. Very professional and the room looks beautiful.

GA Painting did an amazing job. My husband and I just bought a home and we moved to Michigan from our of state. We had five painters come do a quote for prices for the entire home top down. (Meaning they literally paint everything but the floor!) GA painting had the lowest price by a long jump!!!! We hired them soon after and we had a very small window of time we needed the painting started and finished by. They took the job knowing they would have to start within a week. When they got to my home they were right on time, 8am sharp, a team of three men, ready to work. I noticed they started by repairing any flaws or holes in the walls or ceilings. Then started painting the main bedroom and both room right away so we could get into the house asap. They finished the home in two days and we could not be any happier. Indrit is a very nice guy who wants to work. They cleaned up their mess, and left my home very clean when they were finished, both days. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. You will be beyond satisfied.

I hired Ashton Speakman to paint the exterior of a rental home in Royal Oak. It was a small job but he still took the time to drive out and give me an accurate estimate even though he and his crew were tied up on a major project. He is a professional who does quality work. I was only expecting two coats of paint but he did three at no extra charge. The job looks great ! He was on time and on budget and a pleasure to work with. In addition to painting he can also do a number of handyman jobs to boot. Our tenant and his wife were thrilled with his work. I will definitely be hiring him again.

Professional, prompt, reliable and reasonable. I needed a quote and a plan to get my house in Royal Oak painted within a few days before I left the state on business. Elliot at Performance Painting not only responded to my request for a quote within hours, but provided an estimate, an expedited workplan, and came up with ideas on how to keep the cost down. When my schedule made it impossible to be on site to supervise, Elliot worked with me over the phone to select the colors and work around my daughter's schedule to get the work done. The house was completed within days, all for a very reasonable price. Best of all, the house looks great! Performance Painting really "performs"! Patricia C.

Great job, very happy with the cabinets! The color looks great, and they were on-time everyday. My only constructive feedback is that the clean-up process can be improved. I pointed out several areas where paint splattered/got on inside of the cabinets and they were not cleaned.
