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.

Painting and laminate floors. They were very messy dropped paint all over house and furniture. Washed paint brushes in sink and tub. Could not remember how to put things back in place. Broke clips for blinds. Laminate chipped and poorly put together.

They were on time each day and worked hard to scrape old paint and replace rotting wood. Nazario is easy to work with and makes sure the job is done to your satisfaction. The final paint job looks great.

They did a wonderful job at a competitive price in a timely fashion. Esteban and his crew work quickly. I will highly recommend them to anyone I know. They are flexible as overall skill goes. As work progressed unexpected repairs were needed to be made and they were able to fix them professionally with very fair added pricing. It started off with the exterior of my house being painted to exterior trim needing to be replaced. (My suggestion) Then moved on to my bathroom needing to be painted while they were here. 10/10 would recommend

Nazario and his team came in to paint my loft and entryway. This was not a small task, but they worked it all out and did amazing work. I'll definitely be calling them soon to take care of a few more rooms in my home.

Eagle painters are amazing! They did everything they said they would and i am so happy we went with them. We have tall ceilings that needed to be painted along with our stair way hall upstairs, hall to the kitchen and entry way. They also did the baseboards and trim. The price was perfect at least 1000 less than other quotes i received. They also repaired the holes in the wall that the previous owners made. I love my house now because of them. We will be calling again when we paint for the outside of the house and all future projects!

S&L did a great job painting the exterior of our house! I had trouble finding the exact color I wanted (was matching a shop on the property) and they were able to find it. Referred to my parents and will continue to refer this business. Great job.

It was a pleasure hiring Db. We were needing two rooms to paint. Just within two days of inquiry, he already started the job. He did wonderful work, above and beyond. He also gave great ideas and suggestions, our walls are now bragging subjects. He is very handy and offers to help with many other projects. He also is so good about cleaning up and putting things back up for you. Very friendly and enjoyed his company. Will for sure hire again. He is my new “to-go” handyman.

Words can’t express how very pleased I am with Quality 1 Handyman. Jaime was very quick to respond and came out the same day to give me a quote for interior painting and carpet replacement. He was punctual, professional, and asked a lot of questions about the job, my timeframe, and how I wanted the job handled. His quote was very reasonable, so I decided to use his company. He and his team arrived exactly when they said they would, and were all very professional and respectful. They performed quality work and made sure I was satisfied. I was so pleased that I even had them replace a couple of interior doors, as well as refinish my front door. Again- excellent work for a fair price! I definitely would use them again, and highly recommend them!
