Your burning questions: answered

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.

How much does it cost to get the outside of your house painted?

You can expect to pay around $2,535 to get the outside of your house painted, though this cost will increase with larger house sizes (and decrease with smaller ones). The average hourly rate for exterior painters is $45 and ranges from $25-$75.

Wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, aluminum and stone each have their own set of demands. Contact exterior painters near you to get a detailed cost estimate for your house.

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.

Great experience, will definitely use again to paint my other properties!

From my initial discussion with Steven, he was always responsive, provided an estimate quickly and quoted a fair price... even going above and beyond and painting a whole bathroom that was not included on the original quote. I would hire Steven again for my future painting needs.

They got the job done better than i would have but they left paint spatter all over my hard wood and tile floors. The closed a set of double doors while the paint was still wet and ruined the doors. There are missing outlet covers and screws. There was a whole foot of wall they missed and i had to have them come back to paint it.. luckily they were still out front of my house when i noticed. They were in time and friendly but i would not recommend.

First thing I noticed about Steve was that he was very responsive and punctual with his messages. He stuck by his quote and did a phenomenal job painting my cabinets. I already had the hardware removed from the cabinets when he arrived. He finished painting everything with two coats in one day. They turned out great and he's sticking to his work by offering to come back out if anything isn't right. I plan to hire him for multiple other painting projects in the future. He's punctual, works fast, efficient, and does quality work. Don't hesitate in hiring him and his team for all of your painting needs.

Great work by a dedicated and professional team that painted the exterior of my ~3k sq ft home. It was quite cold and below freezing, the team didn’t try to rush this job and painted at the most advantageous time and weather to ensure it was done correct. Undoubtedly, I will hire them in the future for another project.

I hired Mark to paint several rooms in my house and could not be happier. Prior to painting each room, Mark took the time to prep each wall, including filling holes and sanding a few rough areas all at a more than reasonable price. After seeing how great everything turned out, I decided to hire Mark to finish a few other jobs around the house.

We hired Steve to power wash and paint part of our house and stain a deck. Steve was easy to communicate with and quick to respond. He showed up to do the work when he said he would and completed in good time. He clearly takes pride in his work and our satisfaction with the job was a priority. I recommend Steve for power washing and painting services and will call him again when in need of these services.

Our painters arrived on time, were highly skilled, very friendly, and painted an enormous portion of my house in just one day! I have them coming back for several more projects.

I could not have been more pleased from start to finish! It was a pleasure working with Steve and his staff. True professionals. They show up on time and provide the services contracted for and the results say it all. They take pride in their work and it shows. I live three hours away from my parents home, where they were painting so time was important to me as well as I wanted the job done right the first time. He repaired the sheetrock where necessary and painted the ceilings walls and woodwork. When the job was completed, Steve walked through the house with me to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction. Painting is not only labor intensive, but requires attention to detail and Steve has the whole package. If you want a professional who knows the meaning of customer service you should hire Steve.

We hired Steve to power wash our home and paint the entire exterior. From first communicating with Steve, I knew he would be the contractor to hire. His team is extremely professional and hard working. We could not believe that they did the job in such a short amount of time. Steve takes pride in his work and pays attention to every detail. The quality of works speaks for itself. He completely changed the look of our home and now it is the talk of our neighborhood (see before and after photos). I would highly recommend Steve and his team for any of your painting needs, exterior or interior. We loved his work so much that we are hiring him again to paint our interior. Thank you Steve for all your hard work and making sure that our satisfaction was guaranteed.
