Matte cabinets and countertops are one of the latest kitchen trends. Like any trend, matte finishes have their pros and their cons. Learn the pros and cons of matte cabinets and countertops by reading on.
Matte cabinets and countertops may be chic, but are they practical for your home and your lifestyle? If you are all about trendy interior design, matte surfaces are sure to impress guests. Matte surfaces add texture to any design, which is pleasing to the eyes. Matte surfaces are also great for families. If you have children, things are bound to get messy in the kitchen. Matte countertops and cabinets are less likely to show smudges and fingerprints, in comparison to their high gloss counterparts.
Matte finishes also have their downfalls. For one, even though matte countertops and cabinets hide smudges and fingerprints, they don’t prevent them. Don’t neglect your matte countertops and cabinets just because you can’t see the grease and oil spots. Be sure to clean your matte finished cabinets and countertops, even if they don’t look dirty. When it does come time to clean your matte finished kitchen, you may find that cleaning is slightly more difficult than semi-gloss or high-gloss kitchens. Even though it isn’t anywhere near impossible, it will be noticeably different. Another con of matte finishes is they make spaces feel smaller. If you already have a small kitchen, matte finishes that absorb light will actually make your space feel tinier.
