2 Paint Colors
2.1 I like a color from another company, can it be mixed in Benjamin Moore Paint?
Yes! We can mix thousands of colors from different companies from Behr, Glidden, Sherman Williams, Valspar, or even U.S. Government Paints.
2.2 Can you match HTML, Pantone, or other computer colors like from my companies logo?
Yes we can, just come in with either the RGB or CMY code and we can match it as best as possible. Unfortunately not all colors have a one to one match with Benjamin Moore's colors but we will do our best.
2.3 I don't know the name of the color, can I get it matched?
For newer customers we may have your color purchase saved in our system. If not, then if you bring in a chip of the color that is at least the size of a quarter. Our spectrometer will calculate a color match based on the chip.
2.4 Can you make a color a little lighter/darker?
It is possible, but only for certain colors, and even then we won't know what it looks like until after we attempt to mix it. If you feel like "rolling the dice" then go ahead.
2.5 Can you match this color on my phone.
No, colors from pictures on the phone are not accurate to their real life counter parts due to pixel distortion and the shading. Its always best to bring in a chip sample if you want to match.
2.6 Does the finish of the paint make a differnce?
Yes it does. For walls we recommend either a matte or an eggshell. Matte will hide imperfections better while eggshell is easier to clean and reflects more light. For trim, doors and furniture we recommend a higher sheen or either a satin, semi-gloss, or high gloss. We do this so the trim or doors stand out and don't disappear into the walls. Flat paints are mainly for ceilings. You can use them for walls but they are the hardest sheen to clean, so keep that in mind. Of course conventions are meant to be broken, so do what ever you think looks best.
2.7 What is the difference between the types of paint?
The main difference comes down to quality, V.O.C.s, and pricing. Normally for homeowners we recommend Regal Select, for people renting Ben, for commercial spaces Ultra Spec, for people with young babies or allergies Natura, for those who are environmentally concerned Natura, and for the Queen of England Aura.

2.8 What's the difference between Benjamin Moore and the other paint companies?
Quality!!! Benjamin Moore prides itself on only selling the highest quality paint from commercial paints to residential and everything in between.
2.9 Is there special paint for the bathroom?
If there bathroom has a shower or you are concerned about moisture, then yes. We recommend either the Aura Bath & Spa (matte) or the Kitchen and Bath (satin) Paint lines.
