Asked by Jan April 21, 2021

Hi Jan, thank you for your question. The Cabinet and Trim Paint can be tinted to any color. It should look close to the Marquee Interior Semigloss Paint in the same color. Have a great day! -Giovanna

Asked by Audrey April 10, 2021

Hi Audrey - Thank you for your question! This product can be applied to your kitchen cabinet doors. Since the material is hard and glossy, we recommend scuff sanding the doors, making sure they're clean and dry, then priming them with our Kitchen, Bath & Trim Primer before painting to ensure the best results. Good luck with your project! - Sara

I used this paint on some out of date cabinets in my laundry room, and I'm very happy with the finished product. I used brushes and rollers and had good coverage on the cabinets after only 2 coats (brushed on first coat and rolled on second coat using brush for features/tight spots) after a good sanding of the cabinets. The finish is durable after curing, which can take a few weeks. As I live in a dry climate, the cabinets were dry to the touch after only 2 house. I put my freshly painted cabinets to use after just 2 days by putting a little rubber bumper on the corner of each cabinet door, so the painted surfaces do not stick to one another. The cured paint is stain resistant and has been easy to clean with a damp rag. The leveling feature of the paint was also exceptional and resulted in a quality final coat. If I was painting kitchen cabinets, I would probably put a couple coats of poly over the final coat but not necessary for laundry room cabinets.

Worst experience ever!
I have spent hours too numerous to count attempting to use this paint for our cabinets; first sanding, then primer with Behr Kitchen, Bath & Trim, then light sand, then coat of this, light sand, and another coat all with high quality roller and/or brush as recommended by employee of Home Depot and following directions on the paint can. I have never been so incredibly disappointed! Brush marks, roller marks, runs...I ended up with it all no matter how hard I worked at it! I kept thinking I was doing something wrong, but I was very careful and did everything "by the book". My cabinets are ruined and I'm so OVER IT! I will never recommend Behr products. Not only that, I will be sure to advise anyone that will listen to me not to buy Behr.

Response from BehrMay 5, 2021
Hello DoneWithBehr, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry there are brush and roller marks and runs on your cabinets. I understand your disappointment, and this isn't the experience we want our customers to have. I recommend allowing the coating to dry, lightly sanding smooth the surface if the paint left a texture on the cabinets, gently cleaning off the sanding dust, then touching up and recoating where needed. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance with this. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr

New kitchen , sad about the paint choice
I hired a painter with 54 years of experience. I choose the Behr cabinet paint. There is no shine, looks like flat paint not semigloss. I paid big money for the painter and now looks like I will have to coat with a sealer to harden it and protect it . I am so unhappy with my choice . Thanks Home Depot for steering me in the wrong direction.

Response from Doris, Behr Customer CareApr 8, 2021
Hi Kitchengirl,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Cabinet & Trim Enamel. I'm very sorry to hear about the sheen inconsistency, as that's very abnormal and not what we want our customers to experience. I'm sure this must be disappointing, and I want to help.

Cabinet & Trim Enamel can be topcoated with water-based polyurethane. Behr Fast-Drying Water-Based Polyurethane is an excellent choice, and it’s available in multiple sheens (matte, satin, semi-gloss, gloss).

I've emailed you directly to follow up and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kindest regards,

Our family recently bought a house in Florida...we just moved from the Northeast. These houses have no storage!! My son and I have been building shelves. The white semi-gloss has worked out beautifully on our shelves..even in the laundry room, which takes a good bit of abuse. And this is from a lifelong Benjamin Moore believer.

Great coverage and finish
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this product to match the outside of our peninsula with a newly installed pantry. First of all, HD delivered a perfect color match to the pantry. The application provided a smooth, consistent finish and when dried a wonderful finish. Excellent!

Tinted water
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Poor coverage with a high price tag. Two coats of primer and three coats of this to paint interior solid wood doors. Had to switch paint to the Marquee line to eliminate days of painting. I’ve painted cabinets before and I can’t imagine using this product with such poor coverage.
by Lbjjk
Response from Sara, Behr Customer CareApr 1, 2021
Hi Lbjjk - Thank you for reviewing our paint! I'm so sorry to hear about the lack of coverage you got on your doors. Certain colors may need two or more coats for complete hide, but I'm concerned that you needed to switch products to finish your project. I've reached out to you via email to learn more about your project and make this right. Thank you again for sharing your experience with us, and I hope to hear back from you. - Sara
Perfect Cabinet paint
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Having had great success with Behr deck paint, I Bought the cabinet paint in 2019, when it first came on the market to refinish my kitchen cabinets. Two coats, brushed on in one day, smooth, hard finish. Still looks brand new after many washing grandkids spills and marks, no scratches from dogs paws.. Staff tinted exactly to my custom off white scheme. Happy 79 year old!

Good finish
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this first on some pantry shelves. I primed well and cleaned everything. The product did not dry quite as fast as described, but it hardened up perfectly eventually.
