We used to buy whatever paint at the local big box home improvement store. My mother in law does historic home restoration and she suggested a color that was a Ben Moore color.  That was two years ago and we no longer buy anythign but Ben Moore.

 

The colors are true!  They have a wide variety of colors that look great on walls and furniture.  Unlike some of those big box stores that should allow people to paint rooms bright orange. I especially love the Historic Colors collection.  Everything we've used from that collection has looked great in our craftsman bungalow!

The paint has great coverage.  Now, you still need to load your brush and paint properly and we try to always put on a coat of primer.  But you can do one to two coats or paint rather that three plus many, many touch-ups.

I don't find that it smells any better or worse than other brands of paint and it is more expensive per gallon,

I painted my bathroom and bedroom this weekend. In my bathroom, I used Valspar. In my bedroom I tried to use Ben. I will be going back and getting Valspar to finish my bedroom. Ben was really expensive and did not cover that great. There was chunks in both gallons of paint that I bought of the Ben. The only nice thing was that it really is low odor. I was suprised by that.

Quality
I bought 2 gallons of Benjamin Moore Ben Paint and both gallons had paint luggies in them. (Not sure what you would call them, it was like liquidy chunks of paint.) I couldn't believe it. The guy at the paint store told me this was awesome paint and I'm very dissappointed. Both gallons will be going back tomorrow.

Durability
Haven't had it on the ceiling long.

Coverage
You need to apply at least 2 layers, maybe 3. You can't do a W pattern with this paint. I was only able to go in straight lines. Even then, the paint gets picked back up on the roller.

    Comments about Benjamin Moore Paint:

    Benjamin Moore Paint is the only paint that we will use. I have tried many other brands but have found nothing that covers like BM. Very easy clean up and no mess. I am getting ready to paint my kitchen this month in a yellow, can't wait.

      Comments about Benjamin Moore Paint:

      First time I have used Benjamin Moore paint and am just sorry I have waited so long. Excellent one coat coverage with a very light colour in the Aura matte finish. Painting a bedroom that had a moderately dark smokey pink paint and expected to use two coats. Am delighted with the very easy application and the very effective one coat coverage.
      I also received excellent advice from the store assistant in Mill Bay, B.C

        I used Piano Concerto in my living room and dinning room with an accent color in the dinning room of Lover's Tryst. Was so easy to use and covered my walls great. I have used lots of different brands of paint and by far this is the best! Worth every penny spent. I found a large distributor for Ben Moore and they did right by me. I am very pleased with the results...

                Comments about Benjamin Moore Paint:

                I hired a pro who recommended Aura. He followed BM recommendation re no need for primer and coverage in one coat over same color and other BM paint. In less than a year began to peel. BM rep said we should have used primer so no problem with BM paint. I requested he send chip to lab so we would know why it did not bond. Still no response. This is a high priced paint and the painter did prep the house. The house is stucco over block with concrete roof overhang. Now I am told I need to have wet sand blasted and new coat of stucco prior to painting with primer and two coats of paint. Guess what paint i will not be using.

                I have two rooms that were painted over 25 years ago and the paint has washed and cleaned beautifully. These walls still looks good. I've changed the trim because of color choice. Colors are true and they stay the same for years.

                Comments about Benjamin Moore Paint:

                I have been using Benjamin Moore Paint for years now. It is top-notch quality, and I have been recommending it to my friends and family for years. The paint goes on so smoothly and evenly. I also really love Benjamin Moore's color selection. I can always find the perfect color for any room I am looking to paint. Another aspect I like about this paint is that it actually does not have a horribly strong chemical smell like most paints out there.

                Quality
                Benjamin Moore paint is the best paint I have ever used. I have tried countless amounts of different brands of paint, and none of them even can compare to this one.

                Durability
                The paint really lasts for a while and does not chip at all.

                Coverage
                All I need to do is put two coats of paint on the walls and it provides such great coverage.

                Ease of Appliation
                This paint is honestly the easiest paint I have ever used. The colors are so vibrant, and the paint always goes on so nicely.

                Comments about Benjamin Moore Paint:

                Benjamin Moore paint is supposed to be the best paint around- well- it is good paint. It is easy to use, looks great on your finished DIY project and comes in beautiful colors. However, there are many other paints that work just as well for less money. I was disappointed in the amount of money I spent- when I could have purchased a less expensive product with the same results. I still needed at least three coats to cover my walls completely, and each coat just make this product even more expensive.

                Quality
                An average quality paint, I used a paint WITH a primer and still needed to apply three coats to my walls. I was expecting a little more from the paint.

                Durability
                My color has held up well to my kids and the paint cleans up easily with mild soap and water.

                Coverage
                I was the most frustrated with the coverage of this paint. Not what I expected, we are experienced DIYers and we had to use a ton of paint to get the proper coverage with this paint.

                Ease of Appliation
                Very easy to use, goes on wall easily.

                Comments about Benjamin Moore Paint:

                Benjamin Moore paint is the absolute best paint for do it yourself home decorators. It is a very high quality paint. It makes painting so easy. There's no need to do multiple coats. It makes redecorating a room a joy. The consistency of the paint is good. It isn't so runny that it makes a mess. But isn't so thick that it's difficult to spread.

                Quality
                This is the best quality paint on the market in my opinion.

                Durability
                This paint is very durable. It is not only washable, but can be scrubbed. It holds up very well in high traffic areas. It can handle many finger prints and bumps without damaging the paint.

                Coverage
                This paint covers beautifully. I have even gotten away with one coat in certain situations. Although I always prefer 2 coats to get the most beautiful finish.

                Ease of Appliation
                The application of this paint is wonderful. It goes on in a single stroke and doesn't lift off if you go back over the same area. Application is just as easy whether you're using a roller or a brush.
