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 used Nemanja for some small handyman work, before he painted both my living room & bathroom. He did a great job on both, and also did a complete cleanup before leaving. I plan on using him again for more painting projects.

I was very disappointed! Many mistakes with overlapping in the paint. Found out that they do not use tape to make sure lines are straight. Will have to correct that myself. Don't use paper to cover your floor. Had to scrape paint off my laminated dark floors. Was told that if they used the tape and paper for the floor it would have been more in price. I was not given the option to buy for them. The plastering person did a horrible job. Bumps on all of the walls that were plastered. Did not sand down to level with the wall. Many areas had Gaps that we're not painted. I have painted my condo in the past and it has always taken 2 to 3 days. Took them 8 hours to do 3 rooms. Boss never came to inspect his worker's work. Boss had to send someone else to paint the spots that were missing and to redo the plastering correctly. I would not recommend this company.

Nertil and his team did an excellent job. His quote was very reasonable and he helped me choose the paint and even picked up the paint for us from the hardware store. He is very easy to reach and always got back to me quickly. He was professional at all times and punctual. The team painted our entire 2 bedroom apt from top to bottom in only 2 days! They did a wonderful job and their attention to detail was impressive. It was a pleasure working with them and I would definitely hire them again.

Ozeas really took his time and did a wonderful job with painting. He went the extra mile to ensure he did a professional and excellent job. We arranged for him to paint the living room but he felt he should paint the ceilings in the hallways in order to make everything look new. He didn't charge extra for this service! He did an excellent job of cleaning up and even waited for my father and I to return with new outlet covers so he could put them back on. We will definitely be booking him for another job! Friendly, reasonable, and professional, please book him!

Nestor went over and beyond and did a gorgeous job painting our rental apartment. He sanded the walls on new construction areas, cleaned all the dust and cob webs and then gave all the walls several fresh coat of paint. First of all, Nestor is super friendly and extremely accountable. Truly a man of his word. He gave us a great price, and made sure to leave us with a perfect job - he didn't stop until we were totally satisfied. He even worked through the night and returned to touch it up - that's what I mean when I say he went over and beyond. Nestor is immaculate, detail-oriented, and quite a perfectionist; still getting a rushed job done on time! We will have Nestor back for any and all painting work in the future. Thanks, Nestor!
