Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & Prime†Blank space if empty.
  • All surfaces should be properly prepared and cleaned. Remove loose paint, wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry.
  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain remover. Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections. Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR ULTRA paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas.
  • Lock in stains with BEHR ULTRA as a spot primer.
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA as a topcoat to a small section. If the stain bleeds through the topcoat, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating. If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before top coating.
  • For drastic color changes or when applying deep colors denoted with a dagger (†) on the color chip, apply a tinted primer coat of BEHR ULTRA if needed.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Certain colors may require more than one coat for complete hide.
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • Do not use on floors.
DisposalBlank space if empty.
  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.

BEHR ULTRA™ Interior Satin Enamel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1577.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moved to a new house, will use again! I read an article that blue bedrooms help sell a house, so we decided to paint our master bedroom Oslo blue satin paint. The second person to view the house offered us our asking price within two weeks! We loved it so very much that we decided to paint the master bedroom in our new house the same color and finish. We were able to paint our entire fairly large bedroom with just one gallon of paint. I was so happy with the final result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional I will not use another brand again. This paint has exceptional coverage. I have used this in several rehab condos and have covered even rubber tire marks on the walls with only one coat. If painting over flat finishes or lights colors, plan on a second coat or at least some touch up areas. You won't be sorry afyet purchasing and using this paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sheen I bought this product after visiting a niece and marveling at her walls. I was not disappointed. This sheen is perfect. Not glossy or dull. It brightens up the walls without being noticed. It is easy to keep clean. I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior I have used Behr paints for years like 20 plus. I fell in love with the satin finish. Easy to keep clean, the pearl like finish gives my walls a look of excellence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coverage, vibrant colors We only use Behr paint for all of our painting products. Three years ago we repainted the exterior of our house in Park Avenue from Behr and it still looks just as good as it did the day after we painted it. No fading or chipping. During quarintine we have repainted all the rooms inside and I stand by my loyalty to Behr paint. Took a chance on a really dark color for an accent wall in our bedroom, Nocturne Blue...and WOW it is stunning! Behr paint all the way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! When we moved into our house 6 summers ago, we had the interior painted with Glidden. What a mistake that was. The coverage was sub par requiring several coats and anytime we would try to clean the wall paint always came up. We were constantly doing touch ups. A few weeks ago we purchased the BEHR ultra in coliseum marble. The color is a beautiful, subtle beige. The coverage is amazing. Only one coat needed! plus it’s held up against our kids’ sticky fingers! Easy clean up and the paint stays put!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Behr Satin Very happy with the paint and the color but do not like the new lids at all. If they do not go back on tight enough so if you don’t use all the paint the first time the top dries out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint With Behr When we were looking for paint to paint our new home 2 years ago, I knew it had to be Behr. We got multiple colors and sheens but all were Behr Ultra. It covered all of the unwanted colors from the previous owner and really made our house feel like our home. Since then I've taken on more painting projects in our home and yet again, Behr is my go to for all my painting needs! Has every kind of paint and stain a gal could dream of! Would recommend to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only paint I use I'm completely remodeling my bathroom. My paint color was based on a painting I want on the wall, Venus Teal with Bleached Linen trim. The teal is the perfect backdrop for a tropical theme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sheen and One Coat Coverage! I had a significant project of painting my bedroom and bathroom. Both were large areas with 13 foot cathedral style ceilings. I really love BEHR products! I chose the BEHR Interior Satin Enamel with the Stain-Blocking feature. The quality of this paint is beyond compare! It is rich and thick. It only requires one coat, which is a true benefit when painting hundreds of square feet! I purchased a 5 gallon container, due to the job's size. BEHR knows how to make high quality paint! It transformed my bedroom and bath into warm, comforting spaces! The surface can be wiped clean easily and the daylight reflects brilliantly off of the walls! I recommend BEHR products for any painting needs and will only use their products for all of my projects!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage Over the past 6 years, I have repainted almost every room in our house. I like Behr paint for the excellent overage and low VOCs. The finish holds up very well to scrubbing off crayon and pen marks too. It's nice to change the colors because we want to, not because we have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish! I had fallen in love with another paint brand color, after reading up on different paint brands I decided to use Behr and found a similar color. I was instantly excited to see the outcome with both the Behr product and the color (I actually matched it to the other color & Behr color is prettier). Paint went on smooth and silky and dried well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paint for my old house! Two years ago, we moved into our new home, a modest Victorian built in 1892 in New England. The bones of our home were structurally sound, but we wanted to update each room with fresh, welcoming colors. We only use Behr paint, but there was a weird finish on the walls, and we weren't sure our favorite paint would be enough. Indeed it is! We are tackling each room as a labor of love, and are so very pleased, and excited, about how beautifully Behr paint covers. And the colors---our tired old home has new life and its historic charm restored! The satin finish is especially nice in the bedrooms. We are Behr paint loyalists!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This product is reasonably priced. The color is true to the sample. I have used Behr in several rooms in my home with true consistency of the product in each can. Very easy to paint with, goes on smoothly. The color does not fade (one room was red) and doesn’t have that unpleasant ‘paint’ smell that lingers for days in the room. I have never been unhappy using Behr paint. The paint makes the job easier and the finished product look perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint! We had a friend give us a gallon BEHR Ultra paint. As I stirred that can of Behr paint, I couldn't believe how beautifully white it was. Like a fluffy cloud! We were painting over dark paneling. We couldn't believe how wonderful BEHR Ultra paint went on and how well it covered! We love it! We have tried other brands of paint. But now, our home's walls will be covered with BEHR. Getting ready to paint in the kitchen and can't wait to see the results!! Coronavirus may have stopped some things, but it has helped us make home improvements! We can't thank our friend enough for giving us BEHR Ultra paint!! Now, We recommend Behr!! If you care.....use BEHR!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Our house hasn’t been painted since we moved in 27 years ago. The walls were dirty and stained. The Behr Ultra with primer did a fantastic job of covering with only one coat. I will definitely recommend and use this product again!
