Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

The painters did a poor job.according to their own message on Thumbtack, they agreed to paint the entire house excluding the kitchen cabinet. But midway through the job they said that they will not paint the two bathroom cabinets and fleeced me of $200 to paint those. They also did not cover the upstairs carpet and left pair all over the carpet. They did not clean up the paint after finishing the job. They also left unused paint for me to dispose off. Will not hire again.

Everyone was very nice and pleasant, but am not happy with the quality of work. I have been painting our house and hired this company to do the areas that were too high for me to reach. We did a walkthrough after the job was finished and found areas that were sub par. After a day of looking over the quality, I’m finding that there are multiple paint drips down my doors and freshly painted trim, crooked paint lines, the ceiling wasn’t painted properly (didn’t cut in the light fixtures), patchy spots around the trim of the paint, left dirty paint rags in our backyard, and tracked paint up our stairs on our new carpet. We got several quotes and went with this one (the most expensive one), expecting a high quality paint job.l, but that is definitely not what we got. I’m having to go through and fix everything.

BBR Painting did a fantastic job painting our house. The ceiling in the garage was in poor condition. BBR patched, taped, and painted the ceiling so nicely. You would never know there had been a large hole beforehand. BBR also painted the living room and ceiling as well as the kitchen. Their painting is immaculate. I will definitely hire BBR for future painting projects. The owner, Todd, is responsive, knowledgeable, confident and has a good sense of humor. We obtained quotes from 5 other painting companies. BBR was our first pick. They were able to start within a two day notice. They arrived on time and left at the time specified. The total project took less than 3 days. I am very pleased with the end result. Thank you, Todd!

We hired Joshua for a last minute paint job. We let him know how many rooms we were painting and he approximated how much paint we would need. We went and bought all of the paint from Home Depot and Joshua and team did the rest of the work. They worked very quickly and it looks great! We are very please with the work that was done.

We highly recommend Morales Painting. Saul was punctual when we requested a quote and was very professional. The work that was performed (interior painting of stair rails and outside front door) was excellent. The crew ensured furniture and flooring was covered to ensure no paint got on the flooring. The entire process was seamless from quote to the finished product. We will definitely use Morales Painting in the future and highly recommended them!

Wilfredo and his daughter painted and cleaned first two rooms really good on the first day. He brought another rookie painter and not good when they painted rest of the home where ever the rookie painter worked. At the end they did not even clean the paint drip on the kitchen counter and laminate floors.. if you engage them make sure write in contract they should clean all the paint mess before you pay them I guess.. They are good provided you take care of the comments I made...

Although I would very much like to give them a better rating because the crew was very nice, the only way I can describe the work they did is "messy". We had the first floor retired and new cabinets done in the kitchen. Alan advised us that his crew would clean all the walls and sills prior to painting but they simply painted over the dust leaving the baseboards, ledges and the banister feeling gritty. They left paint all over the nre tile. We have been on our hands and knees trying to remove all the paint from the floor. They left paint smears on the wood furniture and the leather sofa. Very disappointed.

Peter was very helpful in suggesting the right paint for me, I am very clueless when it comes to paint. He came when it said he was going to and he did what he said he was going to do.

Mr. Macon performed an outstanding job on the interior painting of my house in Plano. Macon Painting was On-Time and On-Quote for the job. I thought I had the week off to hang out and watch, turned out there was no need too. Mr. Macon proved to me and my family he was an honest person AND contractor. I had to leave for work and left Mr. Macon and his crew there to work the painting and never had an issue with theft or not showing up as I've had with other contractors unfortunately. I would recommend this Painting company to anyone who is in need of a great paint job with no headaches! Please contact me if you have any questions about this Company. Would be happy to answer them.

Kevin and his dad, Mauricio, did a great job for us. They showed up early and worked all day. We are happy with the quality of their work and their prices were very reasonable. We initially hired them to paint the ceilings and re-finish the cabinets in the kitchen/baths/laundry. They did such a great job on that project that we asked them to paint all the doors, trim and walls. They did such a great job on that project that we've asked them for a bid to paint the exterior too. We are very glad we hired them!
