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.

Red Lion painting did a fantastic job painting our office. They communicated wonderfully and completed in the projected timeline. I am so happy with their attention to detail and feel they went above and beyond patching our walls before painting. Thank you Red Lion Painting!

We have hired MV painting twice for exterior painting. The 1st time to paint our deck, which is 2 stories tall, and the 2nd time to paint over 5000 ft² of our exterior including brick, shingles, soffits & doors. Prep work was excellent. They were prompt, clean, professional, worked hard and quickly, and just did a fantastic job over all. We plan on hiring MV Painting again to do some interior painting. Very happy!!

Don and his crew at Infinite did an amazing job on the exterior painting of our house. From power washing to prepping to painting and clean-up, everything was done very professionally. The job turned out great and the price was very competitive with other bids that I received. I would definitely recommend Infinite to anyone and will be using them again for all my future painting needs! You won't find a better painting crew around.

Dave and his team did an amazing job! The final look was so beautiful my sister just decided to repaint some places in her house - even though it was recently painted!!! The appearance is as if the entire place was spray painted because it is so smooth and even - no blemishes, drip/drop marks, or visible brush marks. In addition, Dave is extremely knowledgeable about quality paints, attention to detail and customer service. Highly recommend Aspen Ridge Painting!!!

POOR job! I have a bunch of photos, but just included a few. Job was priced to be a high end, yet 1) I have paint on the floor throughout many rooms 2) the lines where they taped bleed paint (definitely not crisp) 3) you can see the white paint through areas of the paint where they did not provide proper coverage 4) tape left on the wall and very WORST of all, 5) they must have set some sort of paint thinner/cleaner on my brand new shuffleboard and the stain is now wiping right off. I will work with Full Colors to receive compensation for damage. Will NOT recommend.

Infinite Painting did a terrific job painting my house. They power-washed, scraped, patched and painted the house, gables, trim, and front door. Don was great to work with -- super responsive, professional, prompt and did exactly what he said he would. The place looks great and I only regret I didn't do it sooner!

They did a full interior paint of my entire home. Ceilings, walls, trim and doors. They were great to work with. Communicated updates throughout the project. Cleaned up after themselves and finished early. Pride painting was very easy to work with. I would defintly work with them again on my next painting project. I am very happy I used them.

MV Painting crushed it on our office building. They were able to complete exterior and interior clean, prep, and paint in record time. They accommodated additional tasks that came up along the way. Very good painters, highly recommend.

We went w/5 Star because their bid was significantly less than the other bid we got. It didn't actually include appropriate prep work. We had them do the exterior of our house that had a lot of peeling paint, they power washed it and painted over it all which looks pretty shabby. They also painted all of the windows shut after being asked to be sure that didn't happen. They came back and remedied the situation, but that caused paint and the window sills inside to get cracked. If we weren't selling the home, I'd be extremely upset.

I rarely write raving reviews about contractors - but i can't say enough good things about DHC. They not only got it done despite a few problems, they did it very well. Exterior painting project, 2 story, 3 colors, late november. Good communication, well trained folks. They knew what to paint and what not to paint on my complicated and unique project. Great Job Derek, Kimberly and Francisco

I cannot give her enough stars! Best communication exchanges, best reliability and careful, quality work—she had to paint over dark green walls with a white paint and was able to do so in less than a day. Looks SO good!
