   What are the average costs of painting a home?

Interior paint jobs usually cost between $400 and $5,000.

Exterior paint jobs usually cost between $2,400-$8,700.

Now, to break down the cost of painting a house… Costs are based on the assumption that walls and ceiling are in “pretty good” condition and only need minor hole filling and caulking before painting. No large drywall/plaster patching, texture or sanding needed.

Interior Painting

Before we begin, the two big questions that determine cost are:

  1.  How many rooms are getting painted?
  2.  What condition are the walls and trim in?

Bedrooms: $275-$575.

Hallways: $150 to $430

Stairwells: $225-$550

Bathrooms: $250-$475

Kitchens: $175-$375

Closets: $100-$360

  • Add $150-$265 for wallpaper removal per room.
  • Add $65-$240 for lead-safe preparation per room .
  • Add $50-100 per window sash or door.
  • Add $75-200 for all trim/base/frames per room.
  • Add $40-$60 per hour for additional painting or preparation needed by painting contractor.


Exterior Painting

*The typical exterior will need two top coats of a latex paint.

Three house features that will dramatically change the cost of painting your home’s exterior:

  1. Size and height: How large is your home? How high are the tallest features of your home?
  2. Siding material: What is the the siding made of? What condition is it in?
  3. Details: What features does your home have? Is it ornament? How many colors?
