Westlake Ace Hardware adds Benjamin Moore paint, offers tips for creating a stylish home office


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (June 11, 2020) - Westlake Ace Hardware now carries Benjamin Moore premium paints in its 138 stores nationwide. Since 1883, Benjamin Moore has remained a top premier paint brand for do-it-yourselfers and professionals alike, offering customers high quality and more than 3,500 premium color options.

As part of the partnership with Benjamin Moore, Ace Hardware is now the largest independent hardware retailer to carry Benjamin Moore paints – which are not available in any national big box or discount retailers. Westlake Ace Hardware owns 138 stores nationally under the Ace, Buikema’s, Dennis Company, Outer Banks, and Westlake brand names.

“We have built a tradition of delivering world-class service to our customers by offering reliable advice and the products they need to get projects done right,” said Leigh Shaner, senior category manager for Westlake Ace Hardware. “That’s why we are so proud to offer the full line of Benjamin Moore paints. We know our customers will appreciate the outstanding quality of the paint, as well as an extensive color palette that will inspire them to dream, create, and paint a happy home.”

A Stylish and Functional Home Office

With more people than ever working from home, many are wanting to create a workspace that boosts creativity and productivity without sacrificing style. But creating an inviting and functional home office need not be a daunting task, says Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore color and design expert. She offers the following tips:

  • Stay colorful from nine to five. Bold, dark colors work well in an office environment, provided the room is well lit with overhead and task lighting. A color like Knoxville Gray HC-160 in an eggshell finish will add bold dimension to a space and help channel creative energy. *Note to media: A photo of a home office painted with Knoxville Gray HC-160 is attached.
  • Get inspired with accessories. Favorite decorative pieces, pictures or motivational typography art help create a space that is inspirational, happy, and buzzes with positive energy.
  • Rest comfortably. The most important feature in any home office is the chair. When selecting it, remember that comfort is essential because it will help keep you focused. To further boost productivity and your overall mood, position it near a window to take advantage of natural light.
