We have all been there. Starting a project with a set budget in mind, you want to make the right choices for the best results. Choosing a quality paint for your project will always be more economical with less headaches. Why? Because Benjamin Moore paints specialize in high pigmentation technology using their own proprietary resins.
That formulation creates long lasting, fade resistant colours for optimum coverage. Ultimately, this saves time and money as you will use less paint to achieve the desired rich colour. Gennex colorants are also made with the environment in mind. They contain zero VOCs so when mixed with zero VOC paint, even the darkest colours remain safe for you and your family.
For superior performance paint with a green promise, there is no better choice!
With colour! Trends come and go, so when putting your decorating plan in place consider the use of each space in your home. For your main area, set a timeless and versatile space by using neutrals as your wall colour, like Natural Linen CC-90, or maybe a soft colour that can transition from yellow or green (CC-240 Late Wheat). Colours have ‘undertones’ of blue, pink, yellow, green, grey and browns, so lighting and surroundings can influence how the tint will look. Take paint swatches home so you can ensure that you are happy with the colour in your natural light verses store artificial. Then, warm up your room using accent pieces that are trendy and stylish. A bright orange bowl on your table, a soft green vase with a tall curly willow by the fireplace and a beautiful piece of artwork above the mantle to bring all your colours together! The easiest way to update your home is always through colour! Visit our showroom for great ideas and deals on paint, window treatments and a beautiful selection of furniture and home décor.
