When choosing your new fitted kitchen, there are a number of decisions to be made. From the cabinets to the worktop, the flooring, to the lighting, and even the layout, there are a mountain of decisions. And one of the most important decisions is the finish of the kitchen. Gloss or matt cabinets and worktops? Which should you go for? And why? Well, gloss kitchens are incredibly popular. No doubt because the glossy kitchen is the current poster child for the contemporary kitchen. But there are more important reasons as to why you should opt for a glossy kitchen. And here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of a gloss kitchen.
Advantages of a gloss kitchen
There are many advantages to choosing a gloss finish for your kitchen. And these are practical benefits, rather than stylistic advantages. These practical advantages include:
- Reflective surfaces provide more light- By choosing a gloss finish, you can seriously fill your kitchen with light. The glossy surface reflects any light, and this can make your kitchen feel lighter, brighter and more spacious. If you have a small kitchen, you can pair these glossy cabinets with glossy tiles to amplify the light reflected, and create an even more impressive result. It also means that if you choose dark tiles, or dark cabinets, the effect of the dark colour will be mitigated a little by the glossy surface. So your kitchen won’t feel as dark.
- Hygienic- smooth, glossy work-surfaces and cabinets can be hygienic. This is because they are non-porous, so no bacteria or mould can grow in any tiny gaps. And they are also really easy to simply wipe clean. This means that less germs and bacteria will build up, and your kitchen will be a more hygienic place to be.
