PREMIUM PLUS® Interior Eggshell Enamel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 812.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! I am very impressed with the application of this paint. Every room I have painted so far has covered in just one coat. It also cleans very easily from smudges and spills. Can’t recommend this product strongly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting!! I've been using Behr interior paint exclusively for the past 20 years. We changed some decor recently and expected to have to repaint walls that were painted 15 years ago. I was shocked to see that the touch up paint blended perfectly. That's what I call long lasting. I still plan to repaint but it bought me some time to decide on a new color and wait for a sale. And to think I was contemplating trying another brand. I'm sticking with Behr!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint I flip houses for a living and Behr Premium Plus is my go-to paint for all of my rehabs. Great hide and coverage at a good mid level price point. Look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy to Use, No bad smells I have only used Berh Premium Plus and never have been disappointed with a paint job. I am in no way a professional painter which speaks to how easy it is to use Berh’s paint products. The paint goes on well, there’s no VOC’s so it doesn’t smell bad, and one can of paint goes a long way. Dries to the touch in about 20-30 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept Me Sane Since covid put me out of work, I had to find something constructive to do. I started with painting all my doors and frames. Still no work. Started upstairs & painted all the bedrooms and bathrooms. I found painting to be my zen time. Moved to the main floor and just finished the last room. The colors look amazing. Paint goes on so smooth and no runs. The finish feels nice too. Must have used 10-12 gallons. Love the color selection. I even painted mirror frames with sample size colors to coordinate. Home Depot staff were always helpful. Next project-Exterior using only Behr paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convincingly Behr! I was painting my 80-year-old daddy’s den, kitchen, and dining room. He was going to another store. I insisted that Behr at Home Depot was the best quality paint on the market. It covers well, has no order, dries evenly, and is easy to clean! After my sales pitch, my dad is convinced that Behr is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As s I have used this paint many, many times on textured walls and have been very happy with the result. I do feel it is a little difficult to use this product and not to have roller marks on smooth walls. Nevertheless, it is a good quality paint that is a bit more reasonably priced than comparable competitors--especially with Behr's rebate offers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Smooth and Easy to Use I have always used semi-gloss to paint and decided to change it up this time and use a softer sheen. This paint sheen is soft and beautiful. The color is perfect and paint went on wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best. I LOVE this paint! I have bought other paints in the past and no one stands to the quality and coverage of Behr. It is the only paint I use now! Beautiful colors and coverage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One coat coverage. Our master bedroom looks great! The Behr paint was awesome! Went on smooth and the finished product was more than we could have hoped for. Great paint and an amazing finished bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! We were so pleased with the premium plus paint that we decided to do our whole house in it. It has excellent coverage, and it isn't noticeable if the paint dries before you paint next to it or over it (ie cutting in edges, ceiling, etc).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful We've used Eggshell as the base for a couple of different colors (white and purple) in our house and we are very happy with it. It has such a wonderful soft look to it and was just the right type of paint to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint We refinished and painted our garage floor. The walls did not compliment the floor at all. One was unfinished plywood. We used this paint, which took about three coats to completely cover the plywood, it sucked it up good. Painted the other walls which were drywall. The walls came out beautiful and now the garage looks great. I will be using a lot more of this paint around the house, love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surfer My husband and I bought this paint for our bedroom, and it was great. It covered the walls well in one coat and was not too shiny, nor too flat. The color on the walls matched the color swatch and is easy to clean. We've had this paint on our walls for over a year now, and it hasn't faded or chipped. It's beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One coat coverage This paint has good coverage and hide.My only gripe is it is a little heavy and sticky to drag a smooth cut in line. It is almost the consistency of Elmer's glue so it doesn't flow off the brush as smoothly as an interior paint should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only paint I will buy and use Since buying my first home over 20 years ago and doing my research I found Behr was one of the best rated paints and using it found this to be true. Now I am not sure you can ever really do one coat and ever be 100% pleased unless you have the perfect light that might catch any misses from the roller. After trying other paints and being totally disappointed I will never cheat on Behr again. Consumer magazines still give high marks for Behr paints and stains 20 years later. In my opinion save your money and go with Premium Plus and not the Marquee...sorry Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from none better I have tried every brand of paint for every one of the 7 homes Ive lived in & know from experience Behr is the best out there. It has great hang time - meaning as I paint and go around the room no "seam" appears as I return to my start point. The finish never bubbles, runs, or smells bad. Its easy to clean & once I had kids I switched to eggshell on the paint guys recommendation - and a good recommendation is was. I even shook & opened a 7 year old can of Behr I found in a closet to repaint a foyer before selling the house and I swear it behaved as if Id bought it yesterday. Can you beat that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered walls well - nice consistency I used this paint for several rooms in my home. I like Behr paint and having the primer in the paint gives me better coverage. I still like to do two coats but you could use just one coat if you were matching similar colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint The finish on this paint is absolutely perfect for inside. I absolutely love how it isn't flat but isn't so shiny.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting I painted my kitchen/nook and hearth room. Although it's not as washable as I thought it might be, I had reason to have to go back and touch up some wall panels, due to upstairs water leak, it blended in very well, even after 5 months.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply I have bought many gallons of paint in Chantilly Lace to paint over my shiplap and wainscoting walls. The paint looks incredible and has held up exceptionally from washing dog hair to dirty handprints. I couldn’t be happier. I am extremely satisfied and will continue to use this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers well Painted my whole house in this. Paint doesn’t come off the walls when needing to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed 3 coats I bought this about 2 months ago, I like the vibrant color, but it took me 3 coats to paint a room.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Durable I had the interior of my house painted with this paint 4 years ago and it has held up amazingly. It's easy to keep clean - just wipe with a damp cloth.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! We bought this product in 2 different colors. It covered over a beige color in one coat! The 2nd color was white painting over red ... that took 3 coats. However, in both rooms and efforts I am pleased with the product. I will continue to use this product and have another room lined up and will definitely be buying this exact paint again. We bought the first batch at the preliminary stages of the pandemic and the 2nd batch in the middle of the pandemic. Our retailer (home depot) was always in stock of this product and we received efficient service.
