 Color Sample Pints  


Interior designers and professional painters apply paint to small sections of the walls to see how the color looks in the actual environment. By sampling a color at home, you will get the most accurate sense of how the color will actually look in the room under different lighting conditions.


With Benjamin Moore Color Samples, you can:

  • Experiment with different colors before deciding on a color scheme for a room.
  • Decide between several shades and tints of a particular color.
  • Compare how different undertones of a color (vibrant yellow, gray-yellow, green-yellow, etc.) affect the feel of the room.
  • Determine how a particular color in a room will flow with the colors in adjoining rooms.
  • Determine how a particular color works with other colors in the room (such as a deeply hued rug).
  • Experience how a particular color is enhanced by different lighting conditions.
