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.

Reviews for Ogden painters
Kathy T.
David was very professional and very helpful by suggesting paint colors and paint finishes. Together we walked through every detail of what was to be done on the exterior painting of the house. Because of his experience he made suggestions that in the end really made a difference in the outcome of the job. David was very careful with his prep work and paid attention to details. The house was built in 1941 and was looking her age, but this paint job really brought her back to life. She looks great now!

Paul and his crew were amazing. From the beginning so mannerly and positive about the project of removing some tough wallpaper and painting. Work was completed in the time committed to by Paul and the finished job was beautiful. Will use PB Painting again and highly recommend.

Oscar was very responsive when I submitted my request for a painter. He contacted me about 3 days before any other painters did and we discussed the job I wanted him to do and the type of paint I wanted. We set up a date to start the work and Oscar kept me informed of when he had bought the paint and and confirmed the start date. He and his team showed up right on time and got the job done. I also had him epoxy paint my garage floor and he did that the next day. Oscar went out of his way (literally, he drove from SLC to Ogden twice) and did a great job. I’d have him paint for me again.

We hired Mark to paint our new/old home interior (1950s fixer upper). He was the most competent and most agreeably priced bid, out of 4. Mark worked with us on the details of the project and got to work. I am very happy with the quality of Mark's work. And, he cleaned up when he was finished, hooray! Hard to find an experienced professional that is ALSO courteous. Thanks Mark! We highly recommend Mark, have recommended him to family, and will have him back for the next paint project.

I highly recommend Full Colors. Our original painter got held up on another job and wasn’t going to have time to paint our trim before installation. We were under a very tight time crunch with just two days to find a new painter. Jonathan promptly responded, was very reasonable with his pricing, and was able to complete the job in less than 24 hours of posting my Thumbtack request. Over 800 linear feet of crown molding and baseboards are now primed, painted and ready for install. I am a very satisfied customer.

We were thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail and the workmanship he provided. We had several crack and drywall repairs he did for us along with painting. The repair work was so good, you can't even tell that there was an issue. I highly recommend Philippe.

Working with Matt was great we’ll definitely hire him again and recommend to friends and family. He had a bid and a day he could come do it within a few days. He was on time and prepped. He took great care for our existing paint jobs and NEW carpet and made sure to go over how he would execute the project. He had some extra time the day he came to paint ceilings and bid us on the spot for some extra spots we hadn’t originally quoted and completed the job. He’s checked in to make sure we’re satisfied and really takes pride in his work. Not to mentioned he entertained the “what you doin’” question from our two year old 10+ times while he was there.

DH construction recently completed an interior painting at a property I am preparing for sale in the near future. I found this to be a positive experience as I was proactively offered project advice, given a written estimate that Derek stood by and completed work that was in question in the estimate without additional charge. He provided a crew that finished more quickly than I anticipated and left the property in clean condition upon job completion. I look forward to using this company when I start on my next project. I will recommend this company to anyone having a need for a service he provides.
