Choosing the Right Paint -


Paint Brands

Choosing the right brand of paint can be confusing.  There are many fine paint brands out there. Availability of each is based on geographic location. During your consultation we will choose from Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, Farrow & Ball, and/or Donald Kaufman Color paints. These brands offer color ranges of great depth and beauty. They are also very high quality paint.

Using professional designer kits containing oversized color chips, each color consultation can draw from over 5200 different large color samples.

At Amy Krane Color we also recommend using full spectrum paints when possible. Full spectrum paints are offered by Benjamin Moore, Color Stories and Donald Kaufman Color.

Full spectrum paints utilize many more pigments than typically employed to create each color. Each paint color is comprised of 5 to 7 pigments, not the standard few used in the industry. They are never made with black or grey tints. Instead, full spectrum paints use a color's complement to darken it.  This use of so many pigments in each color formula makes full spectrum paints complex colors of great depth and luminosity. They appear very mutable as the light of the day changes and because they contain so many pigments they make stunning color combinations in and between rooms. These paints are all low VOC. The cost of materials is relatively minor compared to the cost of labor when painting. Invest in the best that you can.
