What Color is Edgecomb Gray?

Edgecomb Gray is a stunning warm paint color. In fact, it is considered one of the best greige paint colors. Greige, a mix of gray and beige, finds Edgecomb Gray sitting neatly between the two, making it a versatile gray paint color for your own home.

Is Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray Warm or Cool?

Edgecomb Gray is a warm-toned gray beige (greige). That being said, how warm or cool it looks will depend on the lighting in your room.

For instance, Edgecomb Gray will lean slightly cooler and more gray with north-facing light or in those darker rooms while in a south-facing room with a lot of natural light, BM Edgecomb Gray will lean more towards beige, appearing slightly warmer.

Edgecomb Gray LRV

Edgecomb gray has an LRV of 63. It tends to be slightly lighter than most other greige paint colors out there, however, it still has some depth to it. It sits in the perfect range of colors to brighten up a dark room, and would be a great idea for basement space.

As a reminder, LRV or Light Reflectance Value is the amount of light reflected from a surface when it is illuminated with a light source. A higher value (closer to 100) means the color will reflect more light back, while a lower value (closer to 0) means the color will absorb more light, thus appearing darker.

What are the Undertones of Edgecomb Gray?

Edgecomb Gray has less of the taupe and green undertones than many other greige colors have, and sticks pretty well to being a solid greige. Like any paint color, it is of course influenced by what’s around it (floors, trim, furniture, etc.) but it doesn’t have any glaringly obvious undertones, making it a great neutral color for the whole house.
