I have used Behr and Valspar in the past many times, but it is Valspar I find that holds up better to scuffs and scratches. I painted a bathroom with Behr and it took four coats just to hide the white wall, and even now it's very susceptible to scratches, even though that was their premium line of paint. Valspar I haven't had any issues and I find cover and coverage to be really solid. I always go with the Signature which is paint and primer, and it always takes two coats. Can't speak for their top of the line paint since I only use Signature.
I had a number of furniture painting projects including tables, chairs, dressers and small pieces. Each were different; some prepainted in a different color, some varnished, some raw wood, etc. I didn't want to do a lot of sanding but I wanted the paint to stay on. I chose a gallon of Valspar furniture and cabinet paint in Honey Milk. I have been very happy with the coverage (none was one coat) and texture of the paint. I'm going back for another gallon in another shade of white for further projects to furnish our vacation home.

I really loved VCalspar paint. Would have given a 5 until they made ALL their paints with primer. I prefer paint without primer and it goes on easier and I used the same amount or less of the paint when I put 2 coats on. The paint with primer is thicker (I expect that) but does NOT go on easier or with less streaks. There is NO WAY that I can get away with 1 coat of paint - even when I would buy the more expensive (one coat only) paint. Primer paint is more expensive, covers less area, and you still need 2 coats on your wall - thus bringing your painting costs significantly up. Valspar is still better than Behr though in my opinion.
I purchased Valspar paint for the first time and used it to paint my outside doors. I wanted a “strawberry” color that I had seen in a decorating magazine and the associate who mixed the paint was able to get the exact color! One coat was all it took to look amazing and give my entryway to my house and garage a simple, fairly inexpensive, bright new look! So far the paint has held up extremely well considering 6 children and 3 dogs are constantly in and out both of those doors!!!
I have always enjoyed painting with Valspar paint as it seems to apply and cover nicely. The paint continues to amaze me at how well it hold up from the kitchen to the closet and even the bathroom. I have used it on cabinets and walls indoors and outdoors. As long as I prep the surface I am painting properly, the paint never fails. Sometimes I need two coats but a lot of times I can go with one. It wears well and washes well. With all kinds of colors to choose from, I have never had a problem finding just the right color for my application.
We decided to try Valspar after seeing an ad for it. Bought it at Lowe's and painted the bathroom in what was supposed to be one coat. One coat does not cover. The smell is horrible. It has been 7 days and even with the exhaust fan on and the door closed, the smell is still there and lingers into the other room if the fan is turned off. We purchased a gallon thinking we could do 2 of our bathrooms but not an option since there is not enough left, Thank God! We bought Benjamin Moore to do our son's room which is much bigger than the bathroom and it only used 3/4 of a gallon. One coat went on smooth unlike the Valspar. The fumes were nothing like Valspar and was gone in 2 days. So glad I did the guest bath first because the fumes would not be bearable in the morning in our master bathroom. I just hope the smell goes away soon. Do not buy this paint.
I have been a painter for over 40 years, and have used several brands. Recently purchased Valspar at Lowe's. Big mistake- Inferior product at best. Bought 1 gallon semi gloss @ 40 + dollars to paint a bathroom --2 walls @ 8x8. 4 coats and still not covering dark paint that was on the wall!! Gliddon or Sherwin Williams from now on! Never never never Valspar again!!!
I bought Valspar premium v700 interior from B&Q. The paint dries to a tacky finish, has already started to flake after 12 hours, and chips easily. The paint 100% is not wipeable. I have tried with a damp cloth and the paint comes straight off. I have good experience of surface preparation and painting; I've painted many different household surfaces/materials successfully with various other brands of paint. This is by far the worst brand of paint I have ever used.
I think that Valspar is one of my number one paint companies in the world. I like it because I don't have to put a lot of primer on my wall for me to get a great painting job. I think that it is really important and it covers a lot of spots that some other Brands won't cover.
Overall a good covering paint that does the same coverage as more expensive brands. Many coats are not needed to effectively cover....and most of the time one coat nails it. I always try to find this brand 1st!
