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.

Juan and his crew were exceptional. They were on time and worked straight through for 2 days to get everything painted in time for Thanksgiving. The painting was perfection. He even went over and beyond. He painted the ceiling in the entrance and didn’t charge me. I look forward to the next time I can use him.

Valdez Painting is the Best!!!! Received a comprehensive and reasonable estimate. Juan and his team was very professional and willing to make adjustments through my project. He informed me of the step by step process to paint my house. Juan provided recommendation on the house color choices, which made my wife and I very comfortable and satisfied with the choice we finally made. Juan stated at the beginning of the project "when I am done it will look like a new house". He was right... my wife and I love it. If you want your painting project done to your satisfaction. I "Highly" recommend Valdez Painting!!!!!!! Thanks again Valdez Painting Team

I hired Juan to paint the main level of my house, roughly 1000 sq feet. He did an amazing job and was done in 2 days! Very professional and courteous, cleaned up completely. His quote was very reasonable, in the middle of other bids. High quality paint. I will definitely hire him again! Thanks Juan!

We hired Mr.Valdes after our initial painter being a big disappointment. Valdes and crew were able to pick up the job on a short notice and they did a fantastic job!!! We noticed the difference since day one. They were very organized and clean, and Mr.Valdes kept us informed throughout the process. They were very friendly and really listened to my needs. The job was done very fast as well. We will definitely recommend Valdes Painting to anyone who needs interior painting!

I was recently referred to Valdez painting and I am glad that I was. Juan and his crew were very punctual every day and showed up with a smile on their faces and were eager to get the job done. it was very easy working with him on choosing colors and getting him the information that he needed. They were all very Conscientious of letting me know if they were leaving why and where they were going. They were very efficient in there work and careful not to ruin any of my furniture or other property. I will be using one for all of my hired painting in the future and will forever suggest him to anyone who needs work done at their place!

We had a great experience with Valdes Painting. Prompt and helpful. Juan was always on time. He and his worker did a beautiful job covering over some very bright color schemes. I appreciated them being able to fit us into their tight schedule. He was able to start sooner then expected and the job is now complete. We are very happy Thank you so much. The Stone's

I have so many good things to say about Juan and his crew, I almost don't know where to begin! First off, the bid was so reasonable that we immediately hired him. I was impressed by his knowledge, punctuality & attention to details. His crew was flexible enough to start the very next week!! They were here right at 7 am every day they were supposed to be here. Juan always communicates any questions, concerns & thoughts. I never felt left in the dark. In fact, he even taught me a few things about color, paint & how a house should look. They finished exactly when they were supposed to. I will sing their praises forever! Thanks Juan & crew! You did an amazing job! Thank you for making our house beautify again!!!

True Finish was a pleasure to work with. They were able to provide ballpark pricing up front based on common room sizes and then an exact quote when they came to see the job. We made contact on Friday, they quoted it Saturday. Their crew had a gap in the schedule due to a delay for weather exterior job and was able to start Monday on my interior job. Everyone I interacted with was friendly, professional, and punctual. I had some problems with the paint I provided not covering in one coat as planned and they quickly adjusted the schedule to send a crew back for the second day to add a second coat. After the second coat everything looked perfect. At the end of the job their crew cleaned up the floors, counters, and left the house in good condition. They do a walk through with the crew foreman at the end of the day to make sure you are happy and then another walk through with the estimator before you pay. They really care that you are happy with the job.
