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.

Caulked and painted the rails and balusters. Painted around the windows and the door in the colors we wanted, and painted the dormer. They did an outstanding job, we couldn't be happier, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone and will be calling them again when I need more painting to be done.

ECC Construction was quick to respond to my request and finished the entire interior paint within four days. Everything looks amazing, they were efficient, thorough and great at cleaning up and the end of the day as I was living in the house during painting. Will use again for my future painting needs.

We hired Foster's Custom Painting to paint two bedrooms. When the work was completed I was very satisfied. The price was reasonable as well. They moved the furniture and cleaned up before leaving. There were no spills or messes left behind and the paint was on the walls where it belonged not the baseboards or carpet. I only gave 4 stars because communication was a little difficult as well as scheduling.

Just wow. Michael and his team were very fantastic throughout my entire home painting process. He was very knowledgeable with paint colors, so I had no little to no need for the interior designer I hired for paint schemes. Michael went through and repaired all pre-existing damage to all my walls and baseboards before painting them exactly to my specifications. They even went through the trouble of removing all unwanted wall mounts and child locks that the previous owners had left behind. The team was professional, personable, efficient, and left no room for improvement. The whole crew is very skilled and can perform a variety of construction/painting tasks, so I will definitely be using their services again in the future!

Matt did a great job with the project as there was a lot of special requests with painting and texturing the inside of a box truck being converted to an RV. His wife also painted a red and black design inside the vehicle and it all turned out great! A great experience all around!

We were very pleased with ECC. The job they completed for us was interior and exterior paint, painted cabinets, painted one floor with epoxy, replaced damaged wood and trim, replaced door handles. They communicated very well, completed job when they said they would, great pricing, gave great suggestions on our project. We will definitely use them on our next project. It is great to have someone who holds to their word and communicates with you very well.

Michael and his crew did a fantastic job for us. They were prompt, professional and extremely thorough. They provided quality, competetive service and were very personable to work with. Our project was a complete interior paint with minor repairs preparing our home to sell. They worked around us and our pets under foot the entire time. We plan to bring them back to paint the exterior as well as painting projects planned for our new home. We are very pleased.

Jonah is a really nice young man. He seemed to be in over his head when it comes to painting. He needs a lot more practice before painting and performing drywall repair, with texture, on his own. He didn't show on the original day promised (April 5th). Showed up around 10 AM the next day with a helper and 2 gallons of paint to paint about 1480 sq. feet, including doors and ceilings. I asked him why that was all he brought and he said it was because you can't return an open 5 gallon bucket. He left his painter at the house to go do estimates and get another gallon of paint. Returned after 1 PM or so. Then the paint sprayer broke. Left about 3:30 PM. I was on a time crunch as flooring was scheduled to be put in the following Wednesday. Jonah came back Friday with 2 helpers and a 5 gallon bucket of paint. Arrived after 9 AM. He again left to do estimates. Returned and started applying the paint from the 5 gallon bucket. House was supposed to be all 1 color. Evidently Glidden formula for a color is different in a 5 gallon bucket. By this time I just needed house painted and finished. Walls were to be satin finish and trim and doors semi-gloss. I had to tell him several times that the trim and doors were to be semi-gloss and he repeated it back to me each time. There were more several areas that were just painted over instead of fixed first. Plus a number of areas that are oversprayed I pointed this out to him on Monday afternoon. He was still painting by Wednesday. I told him I was holding $ out until he redid the linen closets and window seat. There were scrapes and knicks in the finish. He said he would be back the following Tuesday. He was a no call-no show. With company coming I did not have time or confidence in his ability to redo the bad areas in a correct or timely manner.
