If you’re a homeowner, contractor or just a do-it yourselfer, Buhrmester Paint & Wallpaper is your one stop shop.

For over 70 years, Buhrmester Paint & Wallpaper has been servicing the Edwardsville community with a friendly staff, and personalized one on one customer service. Established in 1940, Buhrmester sells the finest Benjamin Moore paints.

Owner Ray Eberhart started working at Buhrmester afterschool as a teenager. The business was sold to Eberhart when original owner Les Buhrmester approached retirement. Ray and his staff enjoy working with clients at Buhrmester, helping them find the right products for their home or business.

Buhrmester has evolved over the years, from a paint and wallpaper store to a modern, home decorating store. Buhrmester custom matches all paint and stain, and conducts house calls for custom consultation. You can now follow Buhrmester Paint & Wallpaper on Facebook.

A quote by original owner Les Buhrmester hangs prominently in the store, inviting all who enter. The motto reads, “The value of the information we give here free of charge is much greater than the cost of our products.”

Buhrmester Paint & Wallpaper is dedicated to supporting local organizations, donating gift certificates to charities, and silent auctions. The store also donates mis-mixed paints to churches, schools and charities for painting projects, and even donated to the Hurricane Katrina rebuilding efforts.

Buhrmester Paint & Wallpaper has been a Chamber member since 1961. Over the 50 years with the Chamber, membership has played an important role in Buhrmester Paint & Wallpaper.
