Behr's version of BM White Dove

baileyandbellaFebruary 9, 2013

Hi, I just need to paint a bit of trim and I need to buy a small can of Behr. I love White Dove and was wondering what would be closest.

I read that Behr's Polar Bear is a pretty good match....any thoughts?

Thanks

Why pick Behr??
Stick with the BM

Maybe you can get lucky and find a clerk at Home Depot that can actually match paint or get it close?

Our daughter used Behr Polar Bear for kitchen cabinets and trim. It works well, not too stark, not too cream-colored. She has light yellow walls and gray speckled countertops, the Polar Bear works with both colors.

Look at Behr High Hide White 1051. I'd probably go for a custom match to a BenM chip of White Dove.

I asked for Benjamin Moore's White Dove at home depot and they were able to look up the codes necessary to match it. I didn't have anything at home painted with BM White Dove, so I couldn't tell you how well they did - but they had no problems fulfilling my order.

I do have some trim now painted with BM - I could take it into the closet (painted with the Behr match) and see how well they did. I could possibly copy the codes from the can too if that would help. But my guess is that you will do just fine if you ask them to match the BM color.
