Tips to Help You When Selecting Benjamin Moore Paints in King City, Thornhill, Maple, Woodbridge, Vaughan

To the average consumer all paints probably seem much the same, just in different colours and finishes. Rather unsurprisingly, there’s more to selecting paint than simply looking at the colour though. At our paint store we offer a range of Benjamin Moore paints to residents and business owners in Vaughan, Maple, Thornhill and King City, and whenever you find yourself needing to choose a tin of paint for your property, we recommend you take heed of the tips that you’ll find below.

What You Need to Know When Browsing Through Benjamin Moore Paints

The importance of the decision you make when choosing paint shouldn’t be underestimated; that paint could ultimately end up adorning several walls in your home for many years. Here are a few things to bear in mind and help you to get that decision right:

  • Be Very Wary of “Cheap” Paints – If you happen to come across heavily discounted Benjamin Moore paints (could be an indication that it’s fake or has otherwise been tampered with) or cheaper versions in a paint store, be aware that a monetary saving could end up costing you dearly in terms of the aesthetics in your home. Generally, the more expensive a paint is, the higher the concentration of titanium dioxide it contains, which affects the covering ability of the paint and its durability.
  • Always Use Testers – Choosing the right paint isn’t easy. Not only do you have to make sure that it is of good quality, but you have to get the colour right too. Colour can have a wide variety of different effects on a room from opening it up and making it appear to be more spacious to making it look and feel more warm and inviting. Before jumping right in and buying enough paint to re-do the entire room, buy small samples of each of the paints and colours that you are interested in and apply small amounts to the walls. When you observe how these paints look, make sure to do so in a variety of different lighting conditions.
  • Pay Attention to the Finish – If you browse the range of Benjamin Moore paints we stock in our paint store or any other types of paints for that matter, you will quickly realise that there’s not just a range of colours on offer; there’s a range of different finishes too. You will come across the term “sheen” and the greater the sheen, the shinier the paint will appear when applied to walls. Paints with higher gloss will generally provide more protection against stains and abrasions, while “Eggshell” paints work well in areas that won’t be subjected to such frequent cleaning, such as bedrooms and living rooms.

Selecting paints is a little easier if you go with Benjamin Moore paints since you can count on the quality being exceptional.
