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.

We hired DRT Painting Services to paint an accent wall in our living room and bedroom and Frank did an outstanding job. He arrived on time, was very professional and polite. He finished within the time frame quoted and left the work area very clean. I would use DRT Painting Services in the future and I highly recommend him to everyone. Thank you so much, Frank!!

Luke was great to work with every step of the way. PRO Painting's crew was prompt, professional and meticulous. Luke took the time to thoroughly check the job after completion and found a few small areas to touch up, which they took care of right away. The quote was very detailed and the payment process was efficient and easy to use. All around, it was a great experience and we highly recommend Luke Nale and PRO Painting.

Cameron was great. He made himself available for an estimate on Memorial Day and the team was onsite painting on Thursday. Jose and Fermin were the assigned painters and they did a great job. Not only did they paint but they also repaired several damages on the wall. Jose and Fermin were professional and very focused on getting the job done from the moment they arrived. The job was estimated for two days but they got it all done in one day. I was very pleased with everything from beginning to end.

We had our coin laundry painted. They were one time in every aspect of the process from Quetta to finish. Attention to detail and cleanup after we're above expectations. Arturo was fantastic! Will be using them again not just for our business but at home. Prices were also the best that we were quoted. Thank you very much for a great experience.

Gave them 3 stars instead of 2 because you get what you pay for. They were very responsive via email/ text, but showed up 2 hours late on first visit. We were very unhappy with the quality of their work. The paint was streaky in places with many air bubbles and runs. They also cleaned their equip on our front lawn leaving 3 large areas of paint on our grass. We called them back to ask them to redo the job, and they answered us quickly. However, they were 4 hours late, and just left when they "fixed" their previous work without checking to see if we were satisfied with the end product ( which we still are not). If we had to do it all over we would rather spend a $100 more and have the job done well. It was a lesson that you really do get what you pay for.

Pouncy did a great job for me and I really appreciate that. I will most definitely consider him on any future projects. My job was small and he was very happy to do it. I have uploaded a couple pics. He replaced some wood on the window with the arch and painted all three. Very easy to get along with. You can tell right away he is all about customer satisfaction. Easy for me to give him 5 stars! If you see this, thanks Pouncy!

We hired Jose David Painting to do an interior job. They quoted us verbally and in writing a fee to do trim, ceilings, and texture repair of everything inside these areas as needed. I bought the paint upfront and Jose wanted to buy his own tape and plastic and be reimbursed with receipt. Upon nearing completion of the job I pre-paid $3500 dollars and a few hours later reminded Jose to ensure they fixed the texture issues as agreed in the estimate. A few minutes later his wife Veronica called me and said that the texture was only for one room despite their estimate clearly stating otherwise. She then told me her husband does not speak very good English hence the mix-up and now we could decide to either pay an additional $400 dollars to have them complete the texture repair they said they would before, or just pay only the monies we had already paid of $3500 and they would not do the texture, of course which would be an indication to anyone with common sense that included everything already paid since they did not mention any other fees still would be due. Jose then abruptly left with his crew and told me on his way out to contact him to do the walk thru. We contacted him the next day, and again the following day and he outright suddenly began ignoring us without the courtesy of a return reply which I found extremely unprofessional. (Considering when they wanted something they would get right back to you). After realizing his solution was to run away from the problem rather than address like any mature adult would I messaged Veronica and explained to her we simply wanted them to do the walk thru mainly do just cleanup some spilled paint and touch up a few missed spots. She didn’t mentioned any more charges due or anything but then made a call to her husband and called me back and decided to pull a ‘bait and switch’ saying that if we desired them to come back we now needed to pay another sum of funds of nearly $400 dollars, contrast to their previous statement we could pay no more than what was already paid. Clearly Jose had directed her to try and get more money from us. If they thought their offer involved now subtracting the amount they said we could settle for, why wasn’t that said in the initial conversation and did they ignore us for 3 days and not bring it up until we asked them to come back and finish the other cleanup items? We were hoping they would have returned out of principal to merely clean up after themselves without demanding more money, which would have been faster than the time they spent trying to get more money out of us and making it sound like it was justified after they told us otherwise. We were ultimately disappointed in using them seeing they would not return to finish which would have been a satisfactory resolution and the right thing for Jose to do. Now we have located another painter (whom gave us a much better price) we have to hire to cleanup after Jose and correct the things they stated in writing they would do and then disappeared which I plan to send them a bill for my cost difference. Be careful of this company as they assume there enough customers in the market where if they have one that did not go as understood they will just focus on getting the next job.
