Should you choose a gloss or matt kitchen finish?

So what is the difference between a gloss kitchen and a matt kitchen. Well, its all about the finish on the cabinets. Gloss kitchens tend to reflect light, and be bright and airy. Matt kitchens on the other hand have a dull surface that provides a consistency of colour, without any glare or light reflections. Here are some key pointers that can help you make the right decision, between the two different finish options:

  • The style of your kitchen- contemporary kitchens quite often have a glossy finish while matt kitchens tend to be more suitable for traditional, country or Shaker kitchens. However, this isn’t always the case and lots of contemporary designs are now using both of the finishes in a mix and match system.
  • The amount of light in your kitchen- small and dark kitchens can benefit from glossy surfaces to help spread the light around the room. However, kitchens that are light and airy naturally, might not need glossy surfaces and could work effectively with matt finishes.
