The high gloss kitchen finish is synonymous with the contemporary kitchen. With reflective glossy surfaces, the cupboards, work-surfaces and even the appliances have a similar glossy glow, throughout a contemporary kitchen. This not only looks great, but it has hidden practical advantages too, that make a contemporary kitchen an even better choice. Here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to high gloss kitchen finishes.
One of the biggest benefits of high gloss kitchen finishes is the low levels of maintenance they need. With naturally non-porous surfaces and cupboard doors, spills and liquids simply run right off, without causing stains or damage. And a simple wipe with a soft damp cloth is enough to remove any dirt or food that is left lying around. In contrast, a hardwood surface would be more likely to stain, and because of the natural grooves in the wood, it is more difficult to clean.
However, it is important to only use a soft damp cloth to clean your surfaces, because an abrasive cloth can scratch your acrylic. Even those these scratches will buff out, your surface wont look the same.
With acrylic cupboard and work-surfaces, your high gloss kitchen can be almost any colour you can imagine. From reds and purples, to blues, greys and greens, high gloss kitchens can reach both light and dark shades of any colour. So you don’t have to compromise on the kitchen colour scheme that you want to create.
Light and reflective
Finally, another of the benefits of high gloss kitchens is the light and reflective surfaces. The glossy finish reflects what little light there may be available in your kitchen, and makes the whole space feel bright and airy. In addition, this reflective light can also help make a small or narrow kitchen feel wider or larger than it really is.
