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.

Our rental condo suffered some abuse at the hands of a young tenant. We hired Pro Paint Partners to prep and paint the walls and trim and were so pleased with the results that we hired them to paint the cabinets as well. I strongly recommend Pro Paint Partners of Myrtle Beach.

My home has an open floor plan and I wanted to change the color of the walls. I like to paint but I’m terrible at the cutting in part. Cassandra came and did all the cutting in around baseboards, windows and high ceilings. She also painted entirely my two guest rooms. She moved the furniture around in the rooms to paint. She put everything back like it was prior to painting. She did a wonderful job. She made my paint job look professional with the sharp, crisp edging. She was there every morning and worked all day till the job was done. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a painter,

In writing he promised best paints, specified Sherwin Williams Pro Mar 200 for all walls. He in fact used Painters Edge Flat, low end paint $12 per gallon less cost. When I asked a Sherwin Williams rep what the difference is, "highest to lowest Pro Mar 200 will last longer and clean easily - it's our top line paint". I got bottom level paint on all walls apx 25 gallons. I informed Nick the contractor of my issue and he didn't even reply, what a unscrupulous contractor. You recommended this guy to me, what are you thinking.

Beware! Didn't do all as agreed. Said she could get paint cheaper than HD Behr ($25/gal) which does cover in one coat. Ended up paying $55/gal. for six gallons. Played loud music & sang. Painted trim two diff. colors. Refused to paint closets and doors as agreed. Removed battery from our clock to use in her radio. Had whole condo in a mess for four days (only 850 sq.ft.). Worst contractor we've ever encountered. Was supposed to leave us the remaining paint or the can so we could match for touch up.

I highly recommend Trevor for any painting project you may have. we hired him to paint all the walls and trim in our two bedroom,two bathroom 900 square foot home. In addition he also painted one of our ceilings and the front door. He completed the job promptly, and for a very competitive price. He is meticulous in his preparation, a perfectionist, and takes great pride in his work. He was a pleasure to work with, showed up exactly on time.

We had a wonderful experience with Nick! He is not only a professional painter, but also gave many suggestions along the way. His painting style is very unique and he painted most of our house in 2 days, including vaulted ceilings! He responded immediately to my inquiry. His quote seemed a tad bit high but the quality paint he uses and the professional job he did made it all worth it! We would highly recommend Nick from A Splash of Class.

Great experience! I had gotten multiple in home quotes from other painters from this site. However painting was not their only business. This is a true painting company! I couldn't have been more pleased. Priced right. Quality is outstanding. Crew is reliable and really care about their work and the customer. If I could give 10 stars I would!

My bathroom was in a disaster from another painter...Was to remove wallpaper, caulk around ceiling, tub, then to paint just the walls. The same painter only got as far as removal of the wall paper then became a disaster, I will end it here. I had interviewed a few painters. Nick, knew immediately what should have been done, and now this/that needs to be done..Came on time..I can not say enough about him going above and beyond..he went WAY above and beyond. Even painted my trims, vanity..he did tell me this before he was to start the walls.. it really needed to be done to look appropriately to his painting. Came down to let me know he was done...I was dreading to go and look..I was in a shock, he had put everything back that was taken off by the first painter..cleaned up to a A plus. Did a fabulous job. I will pass on to anyone who needs any painting job done and I will hire Nick as time goes on when I need painting. And this was done in ONE day! Maureen Whitty

Working with Chris and his team was an excellent experience. The quality of work was top-notch, the crew was clean, punctual, and hard-working. This is one of those rare times where results and experience exceeded my expectations. I had originally set out to only have them paint our living room and foyer that had 18 foot high ceilings. But after speaking with Chris and seeing the high-quality work his crew performed, I decided to have them paint my kitchen, dining room and halls. The paint looks great, the crew did a great job keeping the place clean and cleaning up after themselves each day. I'll use Task Force Maintenance for future projects.
