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.

These folks have worked on multiple projects for me and honestly it’s the way that they conduct business and the quality of work produced that keep me coming back to them. I’d recommend them to anyone looking for paint work done no matter how big or small the job may be.

My husband and I were expecting a good experience with your company, however, the experience was nothing like what we expected for the following reasons: 1) The sub contractor used was less than desirable. There did not seem to be any job site foreman with this crew. They worked with very little structure or prioritization. 2) The sub did not seem to be very knowledge on the basics of painting i.e. clean up your work after you are finished, remove wet paint from window screens, doors, brick walls, patio concrete before it dries. Put enough paint in the sprayer before you begin spraying and if you run out, put more paint in the sprayer but you do not leave the painted area where you can obviously see new wood boards through the paint. Check your equipment before you leave to ensure it is working properly and make sure you have all the necessary tool/equipment with you on site so you are not asking the customer for a broom/ladder, etc. 3) A 2-3 day job turned into a 6 day job and not due to the weather. The crew only worked 8 hours 1 day. They never arrived before 9:45/10am and always went to lunch for at least 1 hour or more and left very close to 5/6pm. 4) They did not seem to care about the work they did or have any pride in their work. I did not know this job would be subbed out, however, I would have no problem with this practice if the subcontractor had been thoroughly vetted to ensure quality work and work practices. I can't help but wonder had my home been in a more exclusive area of Desoto such as Frost Farms or Thorntree, etc. would this same sub been used. I sincerely think not!!!! Again a very disappointing experience. Nothing turned out correctly, until the last day when Pedro found another sub to finish out this job, which should not have occurred either. However, I informed Pedro he had to find someone else. Again, this was not the experience I expected but it was the experience I ended up with.

Julio and his crew are great to work with. I hired them to paint my entire home, both interior and exterior. They do good quality work and went over and beyond what I asked for. They were also able to help me with other areas of my home that needed to be remodeled before selling. I will definitely call them for my next home purchase. I highly recommend.

Gilberto and his team were wonderful, not only were they punctual, they were professional and they did an excellent job! Originally I contacted someone else to paint two accent walls, but he declined my job even though the calendar showed he was available, too small I guess, but Gilberto contacted me and expressed interest in and I am so happy that he did! My place looks great!

I was extremely please with the quality of work from Oziel. I recently relocated from Seattle to the Dallas area and was very nervous about finding a reliable contractor on such a short notice. Oziel came to my house quickly provided me with a proposal and was ready to start the job. He repainted the the interior of my home in record time! He took extra care to not damage the newly installed hardwood floors. When the final walkthrough came he was very patient with all my nit-picks and took care of everything. I will definitely use him him again in the near future. I highly recommend him for all of your painting needs.
