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.

Jero Painting was quick to respond. They came, looked at the job (simple painting of a louvered door), and provided an estimate. I accepted and they took the door to do the job. The door was returned three days later on Monday at the appointed time. I am very pleased with the painting they did.

Great painters to work with. Steve was very thorough during the initial estimate. He pointed out areas that he would fix prior to painting and gave us a reasonable quote within two days. After we hired him, Steve came over and did a color and paint consultation. From masking, painting to cleaning up, Steve’s crew demonstrated exceptional workmanship. We absolutely love the new colors of our home. Highly recommend and would definitely work with Intercolor Painting again in the future.

I have a house in Renton which I needed to paint and since Armando's price was quite reasonable I hired him to do the job. I must admit I was skeptic at fist but my worries dissipated before they even started painting. The way they masked everything and prepared surfaces for paint gave me confidence that these guys are pros. I was very happy with how things turned out I decided to hire them again to paint my Oak kitchen cabinets white. They did an outstanding job.

It was a pleasure meeting Rudy and his father for my rental’s paint job. Iris responded right away and was able to book me quickly. Their rate is also very affordable. They showed up on time, patched up some holes, taped everything and took their time with the paint job. My unit looked open and spacious after! Definitely recommend them for painting!

William and his crew were always on time, and were always willing to fix things up to your expectations if needed. William double check on the paint and does any final touches needed. They do a excellent job in covering your furniture and floor to protect from paint. Over all, they delivered a very good paint project in my kitchen and family room.

Impressed with Gongora painting's work. We started off giving some interior paint job both walls and trims for a home addition project. They did flawless work ensuring all the items in the room were properly masked and covered before they started painting. Crew was very cordial, friendly and easy to converse with. We then gave them the exterior paint job. They pressure washed and did multiple coats for the walls, trims as well as doors and shutters. They finished exterior job in like 3 days doing long hours. Kudos to the crew Aldo, Angie, Benny and all rounder Omar for making it a smooth sailing for both the interior and exterior projects. Highly recommend them for all your painting needs!

Bari was awesome. We had a small bathroom paint job that required a lot of prep. He communicated clearly, worked with our schedule and kept exactly to the timeframe we agreed upon. He was punctual and responsive, very polite. He let us know what we needed to get at the paint store so it was easy to get the correct supplies. Oh, and did I mention his work was superlative?! Bari takes pride in his work and his craftsmanship was impeccable. The bathroom looks beautiful with the new paint! I will hire him again for my next paint job.

We are very pleased with Pablo and his crew’s work in our house. They did interior painting of our entire house and they did an excellent job for a very reasonable price! They also used high quality paint. Pablo was very professional and he was very easy to work with. We had to change accent wall color and changed the scope of the project and they made the changes willingly and without any hassles. They did great in painting and also in patching and repairing our walls! Our interior walls, ceilings, doors, and trims look beautiful! We will definitely use Lopez Solution Paint LLC again in the future and definitely recommend them for painting services. Thank you so much Pablo and crew! Thanks, Divine & Greg

Carlos gave me a bid, but refused to give a breakdown of the cost with no explanation, only that he'd use Valspar paint. After I asked if he could at least give more details on the paint, he said ok, but text me a day later saying he could no longer paint my home. Seemed like a nice guy, but make sure you get all the details up front and in writing.
