For your new fitted kitchen, you need to get the style and the design just right. From the worktops to the layout, the cabinets to the storage, there are a wide range of elements that need to be planned and designed according to your overall aim for the kitchen. This includes the finish of the cabinets. Glossy cabinets, or matt cabinets, the choice is really dependent on your own personal preference, and the design of your kitchen. Matt finish kitchens are becoming increasingly popular for kitchens of all designs and styles. Here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen experts, and we help homeowners and property developers make the right choices for their kitchen. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of matt finish kitchens.

Advantages of matt finish kitchens

A matt finish kitchen is a kitchen that has a non-shiny, dull finish. Compared to the ultra glossy cabinets of contemporary kitchens, matt kitchens can feel underwhelming. But actually, it is this unassuming nature of the finish, that brings a range of advantages. These include:

  • Smooth and solid colour- in a glossy kitchen, the light reflects off the glossy surface and is then reflected around the room. This can bring light to the kitchen, and brighten up a darker room. But, it means that the colour of the cabinets can be presented in a range of shades, without a uniform colour. Matt kitchens on the other hand present a solid colour in all situations.
  • Understated elegance- Matt kitchens are understated. The beauty of a matt kitchen is in the design, with no glossy features to distract from the design itself. That’s why matt finishes are becoming increasingly popular for contemporary kitchens, as well as the traditional and rustic style kitchens.
  • Practical- Matt kitchens do not show up greasy fingermarks on the doors or surfaces, and are actually easier to clean, and keep looking clean, than those with glossy surfaces.
