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.

Fernando and his associate did a great job in painting all of the walls in my 1200 sq ft house. He finished the work a day earlier than anticipated and exceeded my expectations. His price was fair and the quality of the work is superb. I would hire Fernando again for future painting projects and recommend him to anyone needing their place painted.

iPaint did a great job on our house! They were here on time, worked efficiently, painted perfectly, then cleaned up after themselves. We have other rooms to paint and we will be calling them to do those too. On top of that the price was great! Do yourself a favor and hire them- you won’t be disappointed.

Victoria responded quickly. She is reasonably priced and does great work! I was so pleased the 1st time I had her come back to paint an extra room and trim. She made sure I was satisfied with her work before she left each time. I definitely recommend DS Painting.

I wish I could give 0 stars! Kayman was, at first, polite. His crew came in, painted my house- and I noticed the trim wasn’t completed and him or his crew completely destroyed my front screen door. They also broke several of my wood blinds; which are expensive. He did find a water leak, and we had it repaired. We contacted him to come and patch and paint the area that needed repaired and he will not respond. We paid in full and we got duped. This was subpar work, he gives awful customer service- & Kayman didn’t even acknowledge the lack of care for my home by him and his crew. He didn’t acknowledge and offer to pay for the damage caused to my wood blinds that was caused by him &/or his crew. As a business owner, you should take responsibility for you or your crew not taking pride in their work at my home. I paid to have my front door repainted by him also…. Oh my gosh! It didn’t get sanded and painted…. He used paint to go over an old sticker stuck on the door- he was too lazy to sand it and paint it correctly- even though I got charged for it!! Also- he will stalk you for full payment but he won’t keep his word & finish his work!!! AWFUL EXPERIENCE!!! Be warned. BBB complaint is next! And whoever else I can file a complaint to!

When you choose Perez Panther Painting, you will have chosen a great team. Jennifer, Miguel, and Pepe have blown my husband and I away with the quality of their work. They are detail oriented, thorough, posses great communication skills, and highly knowledgeable of color theory. We bought this house in which the former owner smoked inside. The walls were stained and the ceilings were downright disgusting. The team has been able to completely transform our house in three days and I’m so happy! One suggestion I will make is to provide example photos of the color you’re going for. Jennifer was able to pull me in the right direction for the color I had been envisioning and I am so happy for her help! I have attached pictures of the before on the left and after on the right. Please note that the pictures have been taken under different lighting and time of day. 10/10 highly recommend!
