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 was blown away by the quality of Paul’s work. I got 3 quotes for my paint project and Paul was by far the least expensive. I would strongly recommend Paul and a Touch of Paint for any Paint Project.

EK Painting did a fantastic job painting the interior of our entire home, including ceiling, trim and walls. Arrived on time, beginning with estimate to the end of 6 day job. Excellent work quality at a reasonable price. The team of two were professional, reliable and trustworthy. We plan to have them back in the spring for some exterior painting. Thank you EK Painting for a job well done!

I purchased a new build 2 years ago. I was tired of the flat paint that builders use. I loved the color but wanted more. I hired 360 Painting and they painted the entire interior of my home. Same color with a satin finish. I love it. They were very professional yet friendly. I would definitely recommend.

David did an excellent job with painting living room for us on such a short notice. Thank you
Nicholas E.
David was very professional and you see that he takes pride in his work. He took down and repainted my shutters to match the color of my new painted door. In planning the job he outlined the parts that was required to be replaced and where they can be purchased. He discuss the type and quality of the paint required for the job. Not a lot of painters will spend time discussing this with you. His attention to detail is meticulous, I wish I had hired him to paint the entire home.
Angela D.
Working with David was very enjoyable. His knowledge was appreciated and gave me great comfort handing over this project. He went far beyond my expectations. He fixed the poor job done by the house builder to make the paint in my master bath look clean. Master bedroom was black and he was able to paint it a light color without any evidence of the dark color. Child’s bedroom had 4 colors and needed to be sanded in order for the paint to be smooth. He takes pride in his work and it shows. Would highly recommend and will hire again.

We wanted quick but professional paint job. The whole job took about 2 weeks from requesting a proposal to finish. The work was complete in two days (family room, kitchen and garage). I liked the fact that they called after the work was done to follow up and make sure we were happy. I would not hesitate to hire these guys again. Kirk loves to paint!

David of DC painting is an even better person than he is painter and he did a fantastic job on our exterior project. He communicates great, worked really hard, and paid close attention to details. I would recommend him a million times over!
Sarah D.
We had some work done in our kitchen and areas were patched and needed sanded/repainted. DC did a great job preparing the patched areas so that you can’t even tell they were there after being painted. DC was fast, clean, easy to communicate with, and reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

This guy and his team made more of a mess at home than good. I had to pay cleaners extra to get the paint off my hardwood floors and also a plumber to fix the bathroom sink that was left clogged because they used it to wash their brushes. Pass on these guys and find someone else to do your job. Don’t make my mistake!

We contacted Paul about getting some exterior trim work retouched and painted at our house. He was super quick to reach out and give us an estimate. He was able to fit us in the next day and was here when he said he would be, he did excellent work. We will definitely have him back for some additional work.

Working with Paul has been a pleasure. What started as a “simple” basement repaint turned into repainting our whole finished basement, the full bath down there as well as doing the whole ceiling throughout. He did an absolutely fantastic job getting rid of the ugly green/cream that was down there to create a light and airy living space. He was also very neat and clean. My family and I highly recommend A Touch of Paint and Paul Hardy.
