Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

The worker was on time and completed the job in the time promised. However, we had to ask him to redo quite a bit of the painting. My husband also spent about a hour after he left fixing areas he missed.

They did an excellent job, we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. They were quick to respond to all our questions. The painters were pleasant and extremely hard working. The house looks brand new. I'd highly recommend C.F. painting.

Joe and his team were professional, fast and courteous. They left the house looking great, and cleaned up everything, including paint that came off in the power washing phase. I love knowing that the work is covered for 5 years! Thanks Joe!

Joe and his crew did a great job painting our house! It looks so much better! Would definitely hire them again. The only reason I’m giving them 4 stars is because I feel like the communication could be better. For the most part Joe responded pretty quickly. He came and gave us a quote immediately and was able to paint our house right away. We communicated through texts due to our work schedules. We had some miscommunication about what colors we wanted in different areas but Joe and his crew fixed everything and we got exactly what we wanted! Overall great experience!

We needed our work done by a particular date. He came out to give us his bid and said they could do it in time for us. They completed it before that date and the rooms look great. We were happy with the colors, which we selected and then they purchased the paint. The paint looks very smooth and the ceilings and baseboards appear to be blemish free. They did a stairwell, entry and hallway, a bathroom/laundry room, and one room. They did underestimate the amount of paint needed and had to go get more, as well as the amount of time needed to complete the jobs (They estimated 1-2 days originally, which was right, but said when they arrived that they thought they could finish in one day, which they did not manage...but that was fine). Our only issue with the work was that they did not fill nail holes. They did tell us to leave our picture hanging nails in the wall, which we did, but there were lots of holes remaining from the previous owners. We filled a few before they did the second coat but now have noticed a few more that were missed. However, we would hire them again and just maybe ask them about the nail holes next time!

We were very pleased with Jones and Company with quickly completing a paint job for an awkward area. They came to give me a bid and not only did they start the job that day, but finished it. We are pleased with the work and happy to have this task completed. Also the quote was very reasonable. We’ve already discussed a future project to have Jack complete.

Andy did a great job for us, our fireplace being painted white, kitchen-dining room-living room-entryway and hallway walls and ceilings look great. We especially like the fireplace lightening up the dark living room. I recommend Andy to anyone, and this is a before and after picture of our fireplace. Thanks Andrew!

I had C. F. Painting give me a bid on my house. Josh responded quickly and came to my house for an estimate. He was very professional and thorough. He took his time and told me exactly what he was looking at and what would be part of the job expense. His estimate was fair and comparable to one other bid I received. Very good customer service. I ended up using another company only because they had worked for a person I knew. I would definitely use be using them on another occasion.
