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 Covers Well! BEHR PREMIUM PLUS Interior Flat paint is the brand that I have used in my investment properties for many years. I always have the ceilings repainted between tenants so that the property reflects a new clean image for each new tenant. This paint goes on evenly and fast. It dries quickly, and the ceilings look fresh each time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base paint I used this on my wall for a base paint. I then painted splotches on it. Looks great and is holding up. Not peeling and is the same crisp white as it was when I painted it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage of old color We moved into a home with brick orange covered walls in the living room. The Premium Plus Interior Flat was recommended to us as a paint that would successfully cover such a dark orange. It worked exactly as promised---great coloring with no seepage of the old color and easy to apply. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Odor free The paint went on very smooth and I loved that there was no odor. So it made the painting job quick and easy. The bonus is it's a paint and primer in one can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful coverage I painted our master bedroom using a beautiful white paint that had a gray undertone. I was covering an ugly, dull yellow/beige. The difference in the room is all I hoped for. I loved the quality of the paint - no drips or runs. There were some areas that needed two coats but it may have been the fault of the painter (lol).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and look I purchased 6 gallons of this paint in two colors to repaint a few rooms of our new house - the colors turned out just as I (really my wife...) wanted, and I was very pleased with the ease of application and price. Our house has a skip-troweled wall texture, which we really don’t like. After covering up the previous owners semi-gloss paint with this flat paint, the wall texture is much less noticeable! I was very happy with the end results of my painting project, and the paint has held up well so far. Great value too!
Date published: 2020-12-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality paint. The quality of the paint is good. The reason I gave it 4 stars is that the color of the paint sample we purchased was very different from the paint cards and the larger gallon we bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans up great! 2 kid tested! We use Behr paint everywhere. The kids unfortunately, for a short time, liked to draw with crayons on the wall. It cleaned right off with no sign of discoloration at all! And marker with just did a touch up paint job and it covered easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results! I use this for furniture in place of chalk paint. Color selection is huge, coverage is great and always a nice finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and one coat I only buy Behr. My bedroom walls look perfect. Planning on repainting entire house with same. Goes on beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCEPTIONAL FINISH CREATING PERFECT LOOK This paint gave my space the PERFECT LOOK! I used it with a satin finish companion color. The contrast made the flat painted accent wall really stand out. I've gotten so many compliments on the selection of the flat paint. I'm looking for another chance to use it again!
Date published: 2020-10-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and viscosity for less drips! Currently building a house and I’m the painter :) Used about 15 gallons of the Behr premium plus paint so far. Best paint I have ever used. This is the 3rd project using Behr paint and I’ll never use anything else! It’s my go to paint!
Date published: 2020-10-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage, minimal drip I've used this paint throughout my home. I'm very pleased with the coverage, and durable finish. It is my choice for every room update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one I use This product has held up just fine over the years. Although our walls don’t get beat up, wiping off accidentally marks is never a problem. Great quality for the price. Meets our needs without spending more.

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?
