Benjamin Moore® Colour Samples allow you to "try on" a paint colour before you commit to the time and expense of painting an entire room. Interior designers and professional painters do a "brush out" when deciding on colour. This entails applying paint to a small section of the wall or several walls to see how the colour looks in the actual environment. By sampling a colour at home, you'll get the most accurate sense of how the colour will actually look in the room.
Each of our 16 oz. paint colour samples covers approximately two 4' X 4' or eight 2' x 2' areas with two coats of paint. You can test a number of different colours at a time. You can also paint smaller test swatches on several walls to see how a particular colour will look throughout a room under various lighting conditions.

What is Sheen?
After you have your perfect product you will need to choose the perfect sheen. Sheen refers to the how shiny the finish will look. When deciding on sheen you will want to consider whether that area is high/low traffic and the condition of the wall.
The look of a flat or matte provides great depth of color that is also ideal for less-than-perfect surfaces. Flat is typically used for ceilings and low traffic areas.
Eggshell & Satin
The slight sheens of eggshell and satin reveal color with a softly polished glow with an easy-to-clean surface that's great for all high-traffic areas including living rooms and hallways. This is also a great product for colored ceilings to help reflect some light onto the color.
Semi-gloss is particularly durable and stands up well to repeated cleanings. It is often recommended for moldings and trim.
Pearl is in the middle of the sheen spectrum. It has an almost iridescent quality, and because it creates a smooth, less porous surface, it's easier to clean and is often used in kitchens and bathrooms, as well as for trim details, such as doors, window frames, base moldings, and crown moldings.
