Customer Questions & Answers

I have a charcoal gray couch with green undertones Which paint colors do you recommend to accentuate gray not green

Would like one darker accent wall behind tv and the rest lighter. Preferrably gray
Asked by: jenn
Jen, the best thing you can do is go to the Home Depot and get a few of their color pallets. Tape them to your wall with all possible light sources including windows and lights open and on. Take a few days to compare the colors and what really matches with your current furniture. In the end you should b e happy with the result that you achieved because you took the time to research what really went well with your furniture and your room's setting.

Behr Marque paint states that it is guaranteed to cover your walls in 1 coat yet many of the reviews state that is not true what does the guarantee do if it takes more than 1 coat?
Asked by: futurecustomer
Personally I am not impressed with Behr paints. I have used their primer, ceiling paints, paint and primer on one etc. I just am not impressed with coverage these provide.

If I paint my walls SILVER CITY, will it appear to have BLUISH or PURPLISH undertones?... OR will it be a TRUE GREY??

BEHR MARQUEE Silver City Interior Eggshell Paint Color.
Asked by: Tasia
Hello Tasia, Thanks for your question. While there's really no such thing as a perfectly "true grey" (as certain lighting or other colors in a room could always tease out certain undertones), our Silver City (MQ2-59) is about as close as one can get. It has no obvious blue, purple, or other undertones to it. Iron Gate (MQ2-60) is another one you might consider. In any case, I can suggest trying out some 8 oz. samples to see how the colors look at different times of day. Best wishes for your project! -Joshua

I was expecting more of a silver color but got more of a really light grey. Even after mixing the paint thoroughly and prepping the walls with Behr Primer the end result was not quite what I expected color wise. However, the paint did work very well and made it easy to stay away from runs and streak marks. If I were to paint again I am not sure I would go with this color scheme as it isn't quite the color that is advertised based off of the color pallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Omg this is a beautiful color!!! Used it in the boys bathroom, my contractor thought the color would be too dark, but when it's all done, he even said "wow... I was wrong" the color is gorgeous!!! Must get, 2 only coats and it's perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice paint coat coverage?? I have used Behr paint premium plus with primer before, I like their color selections but always had to do 2-3 coats to get a good coverage. Walls are textured so I expect that they will take more paint to cover well. I decided to try the Marquee since it "guarantees" one coat coverage, was painting a really small area right outside the bathroom, in this finish with a color called Anonymous which is a medium gray hue. The paint was a bit runny, had to be careful of drips. After one coat I waited about an hour and then went back to look, I found that there were areas that were not quite covered, you could still see the original color. Before I painted, the walls were vacuumed and cleaned to clear away any dust/dirt. After drying the paint does look nice, but will still need another coat, so I cannot give it more then an average rating due to this. I still like Behr products (have used the stain too for the floors), but I do not think I will be spending the extra money in the future for the Marquee line since I will still need to do a couple of coats.
