When it comes to your new kitchen, there are a range of decisions to be made. From the colour scheme, to the layout, to the choice of worktops, decisions for your new kitchen can be endless. And yet another decision to add to the list is the finish of your kitchen. Do you want an ultra glossy kitchen, or a matt finish? Although many contemporary kitchens have relied on glossy surfaces for the past few years, there has been a move to increase the range of matt finishes for contemporary kitchens. But why would you choose a matt finish over a high gloss finish? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of matt kitchen finishes.
Wear and tear
One of the biggest advantages of matt kitchen finishes is the resistance to general wear and tear. On matt kitchens, sticky fingerprints and scratch marks are not as visible or noticeable, when compared with high gloss finishes. On matt kitchens, the colour is the same throughout the material. This means that if your cupboards or doors do get scratched, it will not be very noticeable at all. This makes them the perfect choice for family homes with young children and pets.
Matt kitchens do not reflect light. And this means that they are perfect for light consistency. The colour of the units will be the same, no matter how much natural light is shining into your kitchen, and this can prevent glare and eye strain. As a result, there are no uneven areas of high or low contrast from the shiny surfaces, and all of your cupboards will look even.
Many contemporary style kitchens are now available with a matt finish, so you can have the modern and stylish kitchen you wanted, without compromising on the finish.
