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.

Jose David Painting did a great job in removing wallpaper, texturizing the walls and painting. Their team was very professional and hardworking. They priced the job fairly and communicated well. Next time I have anything to paint, they will get my call.

We had them strip off some popcorn plaster and retexture with a trowelled finish, then paint it and paint the walls in two other rooms.

I highly recommend Manny's Painting Service! Besides providing quality painting service, Manny's staff includes skilled craftsman that can provide whole house renovation, which is why we selected Manny's Painting Service. We needed our house interior painted, but also needed the wall around our fire place torn down and upgraded. Manny's staff custom built the fireplace mantel shelf on site! Beautiful work for a VERY FAIR VALUE!!!! I will definitely use Manny's Painting Services for any future home projects!

Working with Nextdoor Painting, especially their District Manager, Cameron Markey, was an excellent decision on our part. Not only was the price very reasonable, they stand behind every aspect of their work. We would definately recommend them to our family, friends, and neighbors and will use them again when we decide to paint the remainder of our home.

Antonio and his crew did a great job. I hired them to paint all of my cabinets. They masked the entire room, basically building a paint booth around each cabinet to prevent spray from getting in the rest of the house. They sanded, caulked, primed and filled any imperfections in the cabinets and then sprayed the finish coat. The cabinets look brand new. I will definitely hire A&A again.

Ernando and Adriano are a pleasure to work with. They did an excellent job painting the interior of my home. They have also provided me with referrals to other providers (window repair, electrician, pool service) as I was relocating to TX. They are truly customer service focused and I would highly recommend them.

The folks at Spectrum Painting did an AMAZING job!! The "faces" of their company where very courteous & attentive. One of the two was ALWAYS there with requests for input & any concerns. I'll be getting my deck stained soon & they're the ones I'll call. A+++! (ps...I'm bad picture-taker but the quality & service were excellent)

Had a great experience using USA painters. Their quote included 2 coats of paint, covering/moving furniture (including a large TV that was mounted). Some other quotes I received from other companies did not include all of that. Came on time and did not have to reschedule like other companies I have used in the past. Great work, pleased with the results.

Had to fire him from the job. The painting they did had really heavy brush marks, the surface was not anywhere near prepared properly, and the paint peeled off with just the lightest of rubbing. I told him it needed to be taken down to bare wood, and also told him that I wanted 3 light coats applied in order to minimize brush marks. I have done a lot of painting in my 68 years so I know how to do it properly. But due to health constraints I was forced to hire it out. There was most of the old finish left on the cabinet doors and drawers and paint is just not going to stick under that condition. Paint will not stick to an old smooth varnished surface. That's why I told him to strip it to bare wood. The paint job looked like a kid with ADHD did it. Plus, the whole job was looking just plain sloppy and amateurish. It is a two-color scheme and there were brush marks of the dark blue smeared on the light blue areas. There were places where there were small chunks of the verneer missing and those were not filled in. There was no care taken in masking off the light blue before the dark blue was allied to the large center area of the door. If he had been a real professional where the customer satisfaction comes first, he would have asked me what he needed to do so that I would be satisfied with the work. Instead, he calls daddy about this customer giving him a hard time about the job he was doing. His father told him it needed to be stripped and primed ( which is technically correct) but he did not offer to do that. He was going to charge me $1200 for doing just the half of the cabinets that I had not gotten to before I became ill. I called around and the prices I got locally were around$1000 to do ALL of the kitchen cabinets. He almost royally screwed me on that. Before that, I hired Net's Happy Pets to train my dog. She did not even know how to teach my dog to fetch the paper on the mornings when I am hurting too bad to go get it. I needed to get her to stop barking all the time. The things she told me to do did not work. In the 4 or 5 sessions we had, the "trainer" really taught her nothing meaningful. Thing that were absolutely useless considering the goal of service dog training that I was aiming for. Wasted $250. I will not use Thumbtack anymore except for Firehouse Lawn Service. I was very pleased with their work and especially their low price. I don't recall who made the cuts on my new kitchen cabinets, but he did a good job. The problem was that he had to use my tools!!!! But as I say he did a good job of cutting of the ends of the countertops and cutting out for the sink. But the painter really got me p....d off because of the poor quality of work, running to "daddy" and not offering to make it right. He may have been doing it for ten years, but he apparently never learned how to do it right.

This job was a failure from the start. The scheduling and communication was poor. The price was probably too low which should have been a red flag. When they arrived to pressure wash, the worker they sent brought three very young children with him who were in the yard through the entire day. The work required repairing many areas of rotted soffit and fascia wood before caulk and paint. Repairing the rotted wood was part of their original quote. When the crew arrived the second day they began prepping the house for paint but did not replace any rotting wood as agreed upon in the initial quote. The crew filled the rotted wood areas with caulk. They also got caulk on areas of my bricks. Victor sold the job but was never on site to show his guys the work. He sent them in blind so I understand if the workers had no idea what to do. However, putting caulk over rotted wood that you can put your finger through is obviously cutting corners and not what I expected from a contractor with so many positive reviews. I was not comfortable proceeding with this company any further and told them I would hire another contractor to do the work properly and clean some of the mess they've made. Although it will probably cost more, it will be done right. If I did not catch them caulking the rotting wood, they would have just painted over it the following day. It makes no sense to caulk and prep wood areas that need to be replaced. Proceed with caution if you choose to work with these guys.
