Best Kitchen and bath paint... period.

Mar 20, 2010
Review by  
Not yet rated

Pros:Washabilitylife of applicationMold/mildew resistenceAlmost imperviousOnly real choice.

Cons:A little shiny to someA little smell - not zero voc

The Bottom Line: You can't do any better even with paints costing twice the price (or more)


Have used and compared what's arguably the best rated paint ever, Benjamin Moore Aura and the fairly bad Kitchen and Bath version of Aura.   Further have compared to Natura, Sherwin Williams Duration Home, various others.  Yes, it splatters as others have said - they didn't say that it in fact splatters LESS than Aura and WAY, WAY, WAY less than duration (which with old formulation covered the least of the three)  
You simply can't go wrong with this paint FOR KITCHEN AND BATH.   This includes Ceilings and walls and even trim/moldings.It has far superior washability (actually SCRUB-ABILITY - you can scrub vigorously compared to lightly wash all the others) doesn't have the problem of all the others of color streaks from water splashed (ie, from the shower or condensation) that you'll get with water based paints.  It doesn't fade -- yes it's true aura doesn't either and duration home doesn't much but the Valspar Kitchen and bath is just better.Now it's a Semi-gloss (it's actually slightly less glossy than a normal paint semi-gloss) so most people wouldn't want to use it in their entire home.   It's also the most impervious to mold/mildew you'll find water based and it only has a slight smell to it (compared to Low Voc Aura (very little smell) and Duration home (inconsistent - they change formulas and have made it better but also increaced VOC --- was least smelling now on par with Aura)
