Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed I have been nothing but pleased with our the Behr Premium Plus paint. Our toddler has already tested its durability and washing his artwork off the walls has been a breeze. The primer/paint combo also made application so much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for furniture rehab I just recently completed a couple of furniture painting projects with this base, and I was very happy with the experience from start to finish. I chose pomegranate to paint some shelves I built for my kids’ play area - the paint went on easily and looked just as I expected when dry. I also painted an old washstand in the sea glass shade. Again - great coverage, and the piece looked fantastic after applying a light coat of furniture wax. Behr is my go-to paint for DIY and home decor projects because the results are great every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Coverage/ Durability We have owned our home for 19 years and have never used anything other than Behr paint. The exterior stains have held up well against upstate New York climate. We found beautiful colors for every room in the house. We used Behr Ultra premium plus eggshell finishes for the kitchen and baths which are durable and elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Interior Paint on the market! I love this paint and use it all the time for my interior painting. I just bought a foreclosure and every room was in need of a paint job. Being that it hadn't been painted in years, this paint did the job and did it well! Great coverage and color. A happy customer every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr paint is the only paint I use! We bought this paint for our living room which has 18 foot ceilings. Thankfully this paint only took one coat, I am sure that was a huge relief for my husband since he was balancing on two sets of scaffolding! We also used this on several other rooms in our home and just love it.. It is so easy to apply and isn't thin which helps minimize any dripping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! Have used Behr paint for about 20 years on our personal home and our rentals. People ask why spend so much on paint for rental properties? It is due to the washability and the fact that it holds up so well. Saves us money inthe long run. Always looks good, goes on quick and easy, never has an odor. Whàt more could we want?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Colors & Paint This past spring my husband and I painted our bathroom with Behr Cinnamon Tea color and I absolutely love it! It is such a pleasant warm, and inviting color. Behr is the only brand I will use from now on. Other brands we have used, we had to put two coats but not this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user I have always used sherwin paints until a good friend told me to try Behr. I have used flat ceiling paint tinted to paint my daughters furniture and they all came out amazing. I recently had a bedroom built in my basement. I have used flat, eggshell, and gloss In the room. The paint covers beautifully and cleans up easily. I will never use another brand of paint. I plan on doing the entire inside this winter. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage! We bought several 5 gallons buckets of a light gray color to paint over bright gold walls. We thought that we’d need 2 coats to cover and only needed 1! Amazing, inexpensive transformation! We also painted the dining room navy (had the same bright yellow walls) with one coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint! We've used several brands of paint over the years and Behr Premium Plus is our favorite. It's the best combination of quality, durability, and price you'll find. We've rolled it and sprayed it through and airless sprayer and the results were always excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New lid is none functional The new pour lid is messy and a hassle to use. Also the can will not work with my Shur line pour lids, so I don’t even have that option. I will not purchase Behr paint in the future since it is too messy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Navy, Very Nice! We used this paint on a large wall over our main stairwell. It's a plaster wall over brick in a 120 y/o house that has its fair share of imperfections. This paint makes it look a million times better and really makes our house look great when you walk in the front door. Quick drying, easy to use, great color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love This Paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASANTLY SURPRISED I wanted a matte-looking finish, so I tried the flat paint (for the very first time ever). Typically other flat paints scratch easily and don't wash well. This paint has PLEASANTLY SURPRISED me! It not only looks amazing, but I even took a penny and tried to scratch up the surface, but it covered so well that you didn't see it. It washes off easily too. I am never going back to the other finishes that show every imperfection. This flat paint is a winner!
Date published: 2020-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent choice for paint I purchased this thinking it wouldn't be scratch and stain resistant because so many other products offer the same service with no results. This paint lives up to all the expectations and more!!! will buy more!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Go to Sherwin Williams. After applying 2 coats , it still wont cover. I used 3 other types of paint on this job nad this was the only one that didn't cover. I used this paint in 2016 that was left on a job after 2 1/2 coats it didn't cover fully either. The paint doesn't want to pally good The coverage is terrible as well. Because this paint didn't cover good and the Real Estate Agent didn't leave em enough time ... or give me nay down payment I will probably cost 1000 dollars in lost wages and this paint. This paint costed me $27.66 a gallon with tax
