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.

360 Painting did an amazing job with painting the inside of my garage. They were quick to come out and give a bid and then completed the job that same week! My garage looks amazing and I would definitely use 360 Painting again.

I had high hopes when I hired Mike and his crew from 360 Painting Salt Lake City for my interior painting project. At first glance the paint job seemed to be good but the following day when the paint had dried and settled you could really see all of the imperfections and a VERY UNPROFESSIONAL PAINT JOB! We ended up with splotchy walls, thin paint that peeled off, and walls that were never painted. His crew rushed through the job, didn’t sand or prim correctly and used cheap white paint. My husband wanted to give Mike and his crew a second chance to do the job right but Mike’s crew quit on him leaving us to deal with the mess. Mike offered to give us money back (which we accepted) but we haven’t heard back from him so we are taking it as a loss. For the amount of money we spent for a professional painter we expect quality work, which we did not get. It was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. I was totally deceived and WOULD NOT recommend Mike or his crew from 360 Painting Salt Lake City.

The door and frame that were painted look really nice. But pain equipment was cleaned out on our property getting paint all over landscaping, splatters on our steps, and all over our gutters.

Levi Aiono did a paint work for us. Very honest and fair pricing. He also gave me advice for DIY patch painting. I’d call him for other works and also recommend to others.

We were so pleased with Jess and Ryan. They did an excellent job on the interior walls we had them paint. They are great to work with. They are efficient, prompt, careful, and detailed in their work. We were impressed with how helpful they were in helping us choose paint and colors. Their knowledge of paints and their coverage, quality and durability was impressive. Their work is excellent. We highly recommend them.

We have flipped 14 homes and have used various painting companies that we were never Truly satisfied with. Home number 15 we were lucky to find Don and Infinite Painting. To say we were satisfied with Don would be an understatement. He was affordable, punctual, did amazing quality work and was so easy to get in contact with. I would recommend Infinite Painting to anyone looking for reliable, affordable high quality paint work. So happy we found them and we will definitely use them for any and all future pint projects.

We hired Johnathan and his brother to paint our entire house before we moved in. They stayed late and worked very hard to finish before our move in date. I have already recommended them to family members and friends and will hire them again if we need anything else painted.

Helaman did a great job painting the interior of our home. He is reasonably priced and such a nice guy! I'd definitely hire him again.

These guys are fantastic! They were on time, communicated what was going on the whole time. We had a wall patch that was done incorrectly, instead of painting over it, they offered to fix it! We love it so much, we have asked them to bid a couple other projects for us. I will use them for future painting needs, and refer them to my friends and family. They made my navy and gray dreams come true!

I cannot say enough about Infinite Painting. We had the whole exterior of our house painted. The first day they spent caulking everything. I can’t imagine what a tedious job that must be, but they caulked everywhere. They were knowledgeable about what kind of caulk they needed to use so that you don’t see the nail holes. Then they sprayed the garage doors, front doors and the rest of the house. They took extra time to make sure everything was taped off perfectly. The house looks amazing. It was brown and dull and now it is white with black trim. Infinite Painting was respectful, fair with their bid and time as well as attentive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
