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.

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.

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.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

Can I use digital payments to pay for painting services?

Many painters accept digital payments through Venmo, Square Cash, Google Pay, PayPal, Zelle and others. Due to COVID-19, others may quickly adopt this technology to maintain social distancing practices and follow health recommendations.

Contact professionals beforehand to ensure they’re able to accept digital payments and continue to follow safety guidelines throughout your interactions. Compare local interior and exterior painters’ profiles to see which types of payments they accept.

We had our house painted in September after a small exterior fire. Project painting replaced the wood siding and painted our entire exterior. It turned out great!

Unfortunately I did not have a good experience hiring them to paint the interior of my house. Did not use drop clothes and paint splattered on my carpets and furniture. Did not reinstall switchplates or smoke detectors. Drips in paint. Nice person, but poor workmanship.

Dan is amazing! Not only did he get my entire house painted in less than 3 days in the same week he came to give me an estimate. But, it was very affordable, professional and of great quality. I would recommend Dan to any of my friends and family. And will definitely use him again for any of my painting or drywall projects! Thank you so much!!!!

Adam was great to work with and even arranged for a free in home color consult. The project was delayed a little but that was ok as it was completed by the requested time. He was flexible and the painting was well done. He even offered to repaint a room as I was not satisfied with the color (not his fault...those darn greys that look blue!!). I would hire again for future painting jobs. Well done and at a fair price. Thanks!!!

Having just relocated to the Minneapolis area my husband and I were looking for painters for our new home. This was the first time we tried thumbtack and I have to say we are extremely impressed by Blue Painting. I first communicated with Max, one of the co-owners who came out to do a tour and discuss what we wanted done. We had several bids however Max had the best price for the quality and overall he gave the best impression when we first met him. After talking with him I really felt like our home would be in good hands and I can say with confidence it was! His painting crew was professional, friendly, courteous and did such an amazing job on the house. The paint has really transformed it - everything was done such precision and they took a lot of time and care in cleaning up afterwards. Without any hesitation I would highly recommend using Blue Painting for any of your needs, wether it be interior or exterior. This is a good honest company and one that I fully support. Thanks for helping make our house so lovely.

The guys completed paint in kitchen, family room, foyer and loft. They were on time and were in no rush. They took time to setup everything and took great care of not creating any mess. They were extremely professional and paid attention to detail. We are very happy with the result. Would definitely hire them again.

Adam was neat, professional, and honest. He worked within our budget and kept us apprised of our status and the effect our color choices would have on our total cost. He generally works on his own and is flexible on timeframe. We were able to prioritize our whole house painting and work around holidays and prior commitments. Great job!

This crew is simply the best!! I am very pleased with their work. Francis is great at communicating and explaining the process every step of the way. He took the time to help me pick out the right colors and made sure I was satisfied with the finished product. If you’re looking for someone trustworthy and caring, look no further. I would recommend Project Painting any day.

We hired Mike to paint our entryway that was vaulted and had some tricky spots due to an open staircase. He was prompt in responding to our request for a quote (which was very reasonable) and in all communications. Mike arrived as scheduled, worked efficiently and finished the project ahead of schedule. He was pleasant and courteous and I would not hesitate to hire him again. Thanks again, Mike!

Nick did an amazing job. I had just moved into a new place and wanted to paint the cabinets and all the oak on the main floor white. He got back to me instantly, was very easy to work with, offered a great price, and ultimately I was very pleased with his work. After speaking with numerous professionals I chose him and he did not disappoint! Would recommend him to anyone!
