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.

Garry was awesome, he was professional, knowledgeable and very respectful. He painted my Master bedroom which required a two-tone. It was absolutely perfect, initially I didn’t want the ceiling painted, but he suggested painting it also. I took him up on it, and he was so right, it enhance the room that much more, I was so glad I took his advice!! I have other painting projects and he knows to expect my call. If you have any painting needs, he’s the one to call, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Garry I appreciate a job well done. Gerry L. Roundrock, Tx

Color Stars did a great job, originally painting accent walls in two rooms and one in its entirety. The original colors on the accent walls were very dark, and they did a perfect job painting them much lighter colors. They were so meticulous and professional that I hired them again within a week to paint another room.

I hired Capital Painting Experts to paint my garage. I was satisfied with the work. Ricky had been very helpful. Then, I hired him to do Interior painting for the whole house. The house looks nice and clean. I like Ricky responsiveness with phone calls, emails and text messages. I also hired Ricky to do my backyard's fence and other minor home improvement throughout the house. He was very upfront if he could or could not do certain task. I will definitely hire him again for future projects.

We hired Garcia to paint our nursery at home. We provided the paint, and he did an outstanding job. It really looks fantastic, and he did it in a reasonable amount of time after applying two coats. The value we received for the end result is reasonable and very much appreciated. If you're looking for quality and fair price, give him a chance.

Dusty is great! She came to my house on a Sunday to paint my master bathroom. We are getting floors installed this week and I wanted the bathroom painted before the new flooring. She got rid of the ugly orange walls the owners before us had. So happy to finally have the Orange gone. Will use her again :)

Pablo is really nice and did a great job. Was super responsive, had a very competitive bid, showed up right on time, was very professional, and cleaned up after himself. He made short work of what I needed (2 rooms painted). Next time I need some painting done I’ll be reaching out to him.

Dave and his son, Matt did an outstanding job of painting my living room walls. The ceilings are super high, so it wasn't an easy job. They were prompt, friendly, professional and went out of their way in keeping my furnishings clean and clear of any damage. I will be hiring them again for more paint jobs! I highly recommend Scott Development!
