Benjamin Moore Ceiling Paint Review - Is it Worth it?

 While choosing the color of your ceiling is an important consideration, the type of paint also matters!

Benjamin Moore Waterborne® Ceiling Paint is a premium product with a special acrylic formulation that covers ceiling imperfections to create a smooth, beautiful finish. Not only does this product offer an abundance of color choices and an easy-to-apply formula, it's also environmentally conscious, leaving behind no toxic fumes.

Benefits of Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint

An Ultra-Flat Finish That Hides Flaws

This paint is formulated with an ultra flat sheen that hides imperfections and gives your ceiling a velvety-smooth look. It is the flattest finish Benjamin Moore offers in paint. While glossy, satin, or eggshell paints are great for catching the light in small spaces or on the walls, they can make flaws stand out. The ultra flat finish of Benjamin Moore Ceiling Paint hides drywall bumps, textural inconsistencies, and ceiling repair lines, while its light-absorption qualities reduce glare.

An Easy-to-Apply Ceiling Paint

Painting the ceiling can seem daunting, but this paint is user-friendly and easy to apply. It is particularly splatter-resistant—an important quality when rolling paint on ceilings. It is high-hiding—great for covering stains—and self-priming on most surfaces to save you time and money on coats. 

Zero VOCs

Unlike many other paints on the market, this ceiling paint is made with no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Having a low or zero VOC level means that it is more environmentally and health-friendly and will not release toxic fumes into the air.

Waterborne Ceiling Paint is specially formulated to create minimal spatter. This is extremely helpful when you are painting the ceiling! It keeps both you and your space a lot cleaner, and minimizes the mess left behind.

Plenty of Open Time

This paint has an ample open time, which makes it easier to achieve a professional result. “Open time” refers to the working time of a paint, or the time available for a painter to return and touch up any drips or other marks in the wet paint and create a smooth finish. A longer open time makes it easier to recoat and blend adjacent ceiling sections with minimal lapping for a matte, uniform look.

Engineered with Gennex® Color Technology

Most paint formulations contain certain chemicals that actually cause the paint to fade over time. Benjamin Moore's proprietary color formula removes these chemicals entirely. Gennex® Color Technology encapsulates the pigments within the painted surface to produce vibrant hues that will stay true for years.
