how good is color matching by different brands?
picking color is hard!
We set out and tried different colors and finally picked the ones we like. We thought we are done with the hardest part
But then we just realized one issue. The colors are from different brands: Ben Moore, Sherwin Williams, restoration hardware, Kelly Moore...
I know it's possible for any of them to match other's color but the question is how good would the match be?
We stared hard and long and at different time of the day at very similar shades of painted board and picked out the one we liked. If the color matches are off, it kind of defeats the purpose.
Each brand claimed that they can do exact match and have most of the colors in their systems. How did they obtain the formula? is it by matching to the paint chips, or some actual paint board, or by some published info like RGB value? is the matched formula shared across all or only specific for that local machine?
Should we just get the paint at each brand? that seems like a lot of trouble too
thanks for your suggestions
