What is the LRV of Agreeable Gray?

Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measure of how much light a paint reflects back into a room, with 100% being highly reflective and zero being not reflective at all. Agreeable Gray has an LRV of 60%, which means it will reflect a decent amount of light. It can wash out just a bit on walls that get direct hits of light but generally holds its color quite well. 

In a south-facing room, Agreeable Gray will look warm, soft, and light. In a north-facing room, this color leans more heavily into the gray and the warmth is more muted. Remember, your quality of light changes throughout the day so view a sample of this color on all walls and in a variety of artificial and natural light.

Which White Trim Color Goes with Agreeable Gray?

Is Agreeable Gray a Good Exterior Paint Color?

Agreeable Gray can work beautifully as a neutral trim or siding color and works well with many types of brick and stone. Its high LRV means it will reflect a lot of light and can look much lighter in an outdoor environment than you may expect. Again, view paper samples on the exterior wall prior to painting.
