Choosing between gloss or matt kitchen cabinets

When it comes to your new fitted kitchen, you need everything to be just right. This includes your units, work-surfaces and cupboards. But choosing your new cupboards can be more challenging than you might think. From door and frame options, to the finish itself, choosing your new kitchen cabinets can be overwhelming. But here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing between gloss or matt kitchen cabinets.

Choosing between gloss or matt kitchen cabinets

The difference between gloss and matt kitchen cabinets simply comes down to the finish. If you want a kitchen that reflects the light and glimmers, a gloss kitchen could be the perfect choice. But if you’re looking for a kitchen with a subtle hint of style, a matt kitchen could be perfect. But it’s not always as simple as that, so let’s compare:

  • Kitchen style- typically a contemporary kitchen uses a high gloss finish, but a matt finish can work well in a contemporary kitchen, depending on the colour scheme and the rest of the kitchen features.
  • Practicalities- matt kitchens tend not to show up as many fingerprints, or hand marks, as a gloss kitchen. So if you have children, and don’t want to spend your whole time cleaning up fingermarks, a matt kitchen will probably be a better option.
  • Kitchen light- if your kitchen is quite small and dark, light, bright and glossy surfaces can really brighten it up. As well as bright paintwork and stylish tiles. As a result, you might want to opt for glossy cabinets in this situation.
  • Kitchen colour scheme- generally speaking, white kitchen cabinets look incredible in a high gloss finish. And similarly, black kitchen cabinets look equally as stunning in a matt finish. So your colour scheme can also determine your finish choice.
