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.

I hired this company back in November to paint my ceilings, living room, dining room and basement entry way. Let me say the fellas that this company sent out to my home to paint were terrible. There painting and clean up job was horrible. Honestly, this is a job I could have done myself and it would have come out better than this. I was very disappointed because the manager stated how they paint multi million dollar homes. That is a bunch of BS. If you hire them, beware. The two guys that came to my home, took multiple cigarette breaks. They left all kinds of paint on my baseboards and trim. When they took off the painters tape, they ripped paint off the walls and never repainted it. On several areas where they painted the ceiling it was half ass painted and pieces of the brush was left in the paint. Tape was left around one of our light fixtures. They did not paint the door in which they were supposed to. Day 2 of the painting job they took there sweet time and rushed towards the end and never did a walk through for mistakes. I spent $1500.00 on this terrible job and just know I would not recommend them nor would I ever hire them again. The true saying goes you get what you pay for and I got a trash paint job.

We hired Valdes Painting to paint all of the exterior wood, the metal canopies, and an iron fence. They did an OUSTANDING job!! Their prep-work was meticulous, including covering all of the windows and exterior hardware and protecting all of the exterior lights. The paint was sprayed on and then hand-rolled, which made for a smooth finish and allowed it to dry quickly, so we didn't have to wait for hours for paint to dry. They got every nook and cranny, matched the paint exactly to what we specified, and did an AMAZING job! I would highly recommend Valdes Painting. They were quick to answer all of our questions and had excellent communication, so we could plan out our project. Thank you so much for a job well done!!!

Todd painted a couple bedrooms, laundry room, bathroom and closets for us. He advised on paint choices and finishes as rooms had bright colors and we were going neutral grays. I appreciate he took extra time to deal with dry wall screws popping out, wall blemishes, prior painting flaws, etc. He worked efficiently and had a fair price for the work. I've made plans to invite him back for more projects.

Todd did a great job painting my condo, as I was getting ready to sell it. The previous owners had done some "interesting" DIY painting in the master bedroom that necessitated some extra wall prep. The end result looks great - feels like a completely new place!

Juan and his crew are professionals. They arrive on time early in the morning and continue working until the job is done. Everyone is busy, and you don’t see anyone standing around doing nothing. They were finished painting in half the time expected. When Juan speaks with us or his crew, the talk is always pleasant and friendly, but all business – – no fooling around. The paint job is meticulous but fast, and the cleanup immaculate. The cost is reasonable and Included two coats of paint. When The job was complete, we noticed one little spot was missed, but Juan returned within five minutes of our phone call to touch up. This was a wonderful paint job done by top notch people. Outstanding.

Juan and his crew did an excellent job on our house. We asked him to paint some previously painted brick with weeping mortar, along with some sections of vinyl siding. He had good advice in response to our questions, and was very knowledgeable in explaining the products and methods he would use. They cleaned up very well and had good attention to detail - pointing out things I hadn't even thought of. The finished job looks fabulous and we are very, very pleased. We can unequivocally recommend Valdes Painting!
