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.

Joe painted my living room, kitchen, and two hallways. He worked very fast, which at first, I was a little concerned about. His work is very professional, however - no drips and no paint on my ceiling! I have since booked him to stain my front porch and my deck. I would definitely recommend hiring Joe, and I will do so again.

Max and Josh came to our house and gave us a free estimate. They were professional and nice guys. Within a week of hiring them, they completed painting the entire interior of my house (2500sq ft). They worked long hours to complete the job quickly for us. Very fairly priced. Max and Josh cleaned up every evening and left my house in good shape. They did a wonderful job patching, cutting in, and painting. I've recommended them to friends and family. Thank you guys!

Jack was very friendly and easy to work with. Arrived on time for the job and was done much faster than I expected. He did four rooms in a day and a half. Quality of the work is excellent. We will definitely use him for future work. Highly recommend Jack. The pictures show two rooms with chalkboard paint before and you can't tell now.

We had one bedroom we wanted repainted: Our 8 year old girl's room. Unfortunately, we hadn't gotten it done prior to installing new carpet and purchasing a new bedroom set. I contacted Ryan and explained that we wanted the job done quickly, but most importantly done well and carefully. Ryan and his helper made it over to our house in just a couple days and did a fantastic job. It was well worth the fee, since had we done it ourselves, we would have had to purchase tape, drop cloths, paints, brushes, rollers AND spend the time to actually do the work. Admire the Hue did it for a very reasonable price, and were very pleasant to work with! Highly recommend them.

First, A little background on me. I’m 47 years old and I have probably hired around 15 different contractors in my lifetime to do various jobs from installing a toilet and garbage disposal to building a deck and Wood Flooring throughput our house. I can also tell you that I know I’m not easy to work with as I expect perfection from the people that I’ve hired..... That’s just my nature. With that all said. Chad and his Son absolutely blew my expectations out of the water.... from their customer service to the quality of their workmanship was nothing short of amazing....we hired Chad to remove our popcorn ceilings and also paint two bedrooms and do some electrical work as well and we also were putting in new carpet after Chad was done with his portion so the timing was critical that everything went according to plan. Yes, there are other Contractors to choose from but very few have the down to earth personality and also the professionalism as well. The nice thing about Historical Restorations is that they are a one stop shop when it comes to Home Repairs and Remodeling. They don’t just do painting.. They can do Windows, Decks, flooring or pretty much anything else that you need. In fact we will be having Chad build a New Bathroom for us which will be Extensive work but I know the job will be done right and the Price will be Fair...I hope this review helps because i know how difficult hiring a contractor can be because there are so many that are available but I can assure you that if you want to make it easy on yourself then just hire Chad and his Company to do the work because they are exceptional when it comes to all the check marks that you want in a Contractor.
