Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint I love this paint. You can match anything and it's easy to clean just wipe off I love it because I can match anything. You can use this on trim and furniture I even painted an old leather type chair. I like to use it in an open concept room you can have your trim match your table legs. It makes everything pull together. This paint lasts so long and with my Grandchildren and my furbabies it gets a good work out. I would recommend this product to every one I feel Behr paint is the best on the market for the money hands down I live in a small town and we do not have a Home Depot so I drive to next town to buy Behr Paint

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cover Not that great I have a very small bathroom, just the toilet area. I measure and came up with less than a gallon. I used Ultra Pure White. The wall, sheet rock, has not been paint since house was new, 12 years ago. The wall sucked up the pain. I have painted three coats 1.5 gallons. There are still areas where the paint has not covered completely. I would not use this paint again. Mostly in the corners, I have used two types of brushes and 6" roller.Not too thrilled at all. I have painted many interior and exterior over the years. I am a homeowner, not a professional. I cleaned the walls beforehand, I did not use a primer. I have use Behr products over the years. I have always use Behr premium and been successful, not this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands Down Beats the Competition I bought a quart of the competition to paint my bathroom doors. I did not like the end results. It looked bumpy and the color wasn't staying even after 2 coats. Then I bought Behr Premium Plus for the other doors in the house and what a difference! The first coat didn't look as great, but once I did the second coat, wow! It is beautiful! The doors look as if they have glass on top of the paint. Needless to say, I ran to the store to buy not a quart, but a gallon to do all the doors in the house. Never again will I purchase the competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 110 Year Old House Made Beautiful ♥️ We started painting our newly purchased 110 year old home last summer 2020 with Behr Premium Plus Exterior high-gloss and their semi-gloss exterior. This is the absolute best paint I’ve ever used in 35 years of painting my various homes. We had painted every inch of this old home using only Behr products and we couldn’t be happier about it. Love the thickness and coverage of this paint. We’re looking forward to finishing the details this year along with using only Behr interior paint for every room inside. ♥️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remodel of entire floor We have just finished remodeling and entire floor---flooring, painting, etc. Behr paint is my go to paint! I use the high gloss finish on my ceilings and walls because I love the light refraction and the ease of clean up. My bushes clean nicely and the walls clean great for years to come. The bath walls hold up to steamy showers/baths and never dull. Custom colors are always "spot on".
