Paint Color Sample Pint
Benjamin Moore® Color Samples allow you to "try on" a paint color 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 color. This entails applying paint to a small section of the wall or several walls to see how the color looks in the actual environment. By sampling a color at home, you'll get the most accurate sense of how the color will actually look in the room. Each of our 16 oz. paint color 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 colors at a time. You can also paint smaller test swatches on several walls to see how a particular color will look throughout a room under various lighting conditions.
Need Help Selecting a Sheen?
What is Sheen?After you have your perfect product you will need to choose the perfect sheen. Sheen refers to 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 most popular finish in our industry, the slight sheen of eggshell reveals color with a softly polished glow with an easy-to-clean surface that's great for all low to moderate areas including living rooms, hallways, and low traffic bedrooms. This is also a great product for colored ceilings to help reflect some light onto the color.
Before you or your contractor buy paint, find out exactly how much you'll need. If more than one room is being painted with the same colour, add up the total square footage.
PLEASE NOTE: These calculations are not intended to give more than a rough estimate. Precise paint needs will vary according to many factors, including the application method. These calculations assume 2 coats of paint and do not include the ceiling.

Use the following formula to estimate the amount of wall paint you need. Double the result if the walls require two coats.
1. Add together the length of each wall.
2. Multiply the sum by the wall height, to find the total wall area.
3. Subtract 20 square feet for each door to find the actual amount of wall area you‰۪re painting.
For Example: If you have 2 doors (2 x 20 =40); you would subtract 40 square feet.
4. Divide this figure by the paint coverage (400 square feet per gallon), and the result is the number of gallons to purchase for one coat.
5. Multiply this figure by 2 and the result is the number of gallons to purchase for two coats.
