Matt finish kitchens don’t reflect light like a gloss version. They deliver a flat look but give a strong sense of depth of colour and they work particularly well in modern and contemporary settings.
Inevitably, light reflects on glossy surfaces but matt alternatives produce a consistently smooth look whatever the lighting. For many, matt finishes also look a little less clinical.
Matt kitchens tend to offer a broader choice of colours and they work in both a textured and smooth finish. They also lend themselves to working well with a mix of natural wood finishes and matt paint contrasts.
By their nature matt finishes tend to ‘hide’ any imperfections and they are much more scratch resistant compared to some gloss alternatives. They are particularly popular with families with children because fingerprints and smudge marks are less noticeable.
Understated elegance is how many customers describe matt finish kitchens.
Mixing and matching worktop finishes is becoming increasingly popular. For example, combining two finishes such as granite and a wood area (for food preparation) – can provide both a highly practical and visually stunning effect. Quartz and granite are also very popular.
People are looking to make their kitchens easier to maintain by choosing glass upstands and splashbacks rather than tiles. Choosing a striking coloured glass – especially if complementing neutral coloured furniture – also allows clients to individualise their kitchen.
There is a range of matt finish appliances on the market to add a touch of understated quality to your kitchen. Even a brushed steel type of effect can work brilliantly with coloured matt finished kitchen furniture. Ask our designers for more details.
