Given how cabinets are a significant visual element in the kitchen, you’ll want to make sure they’re always in good condition. This means updating their finish occasionally when they become faded and worn. You can either pick the same glossy finish for your kitchen cabinets or try something newer and bolder. Have you ever considered a matte finish for your cabinetry?
You Should Definitely Try It
Color is an integral element in kitchen cabinets, but it’s their finish that gives them the complete look. Finishes are available in many different types, and matte remains one of the most popular. Unlike most finishes – which come with a lustrous, reflective surface – matte appears more solid and shine-free. You might want to choose it for your kitchen cabinets because:
It adds depth and texture to your kitchen. This is especially useful in larger kitchens with an open-concept floor plan. Cabinets with a lustrous finish may have to compete with other high-gloss elements like the fixtures, appliances and countertops. By choosing a matte finish, you can add an extra layer to your kitchen’s look, further enhancing it.
It can help conceal flaws on your cabinets. Many homeowners choose a matte finish for their kitchen cabinets for the same reason they pick granite for their countertops: it allows for easier maintenance. That’s because it can help hide small scratches, nicks and flaws on the cabinet surface. For homeowners who are always too busy to clean or check up on their cabinetry, this is a huge advantage.
Maybe, You Should Think About It More?
Matte finish on kitchen cabinets is not without its downsides. For one thing, matte finish doesn’t have a seal, meaning your cabinets will be more susceptible to minor cosmetic damage. And because matte finishes don’t reflect light the way glossy cabinet finishes do, they are not a particularly good choice in smaller kitchens.
