The Facts Regarding Cutting Paint By 50%

March 16, 2019

So you finally decide on your paint color and you are going to paint your living room walls with Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl. You think that a great ceiling color would be a lighter version than the Gray Owl. You read somewhere online that you can get a custom color made by asking the paint store to lightened your color by 50%.   Makes sense, right?  Adding white will make the color lighter, right? Nope- not that easy. I decided to look into the idea that when you want a paint color lightened by half, you can ask at the paint store to ‘cut’ the color by 50%.  Is it practical? Is it doable? Does it work?
