Choosing the Right Finish for Your Kitchen Cabinets

One of the best and most affordable ways to easily transform the appearance of a kitchen is to replace the kitchen doors with new ones. Kitchen cabinets and drawers take up a great deal of space in the kitchen and are instantly noticeable when you walk into the room. By simply replacing your kitchen cabinet doors with new ones, you can instantly transform the room. But it can be difficult to know what the right kind of finish for your space is and which kind of kitchen doors to choose. Our blog gives you some advice on choosing the right finish for your kitchen cabinets and the advantages of each style.

High-Gloss Finish

This is a particularly popular style of kitchen door and is typically associated with a contemporary design. A high gloss finish is best suited to flat kitchen cabinets and provides a very neat and tidy effect in the kitchen area. You will also find high gloss referred to as ultra high gloss and the finish can be different depending on the brand or designer. Many gloss kitchen cabinets will use light colours as the shiny surface reflects light back into the kitchen. Some of the reasons you should use high gloss cabinets include;

1) If you have a small kitchen space and want to make the room appear larger

2) High Gloss finish can make darker colours still appear brighter and not make space feel cramped

3) The finish is also a lot easier to clean than traditional kitchen cabinets

Matt Finish

This finish is associated with a classic or traditional kitchen design and is often used for wooden cabinet doors. This finish is perfect if you are looking to have moulded kitchen doors with a different design that are not flat. However, Matt finish is not exclusively for traditional kitchen styles and it can look just as good on contemporary kitchen doors. Matt finish kitchen doors can be great if you have a lot of strong colours in your kitchen or if you have a very bright space. The light will not reflect off Matt kitchen cabinets so it will not make your space appear too bright. Some of the advantages of Matt kitchen cabinets include;

1) Fingerprints and scratches will not show up as visible as they do on high gloss

2) The colour can look much more consistent across the doors with no light reflection

3) A matt design presents a traditional look, similar to a country kitchen style

Other Things to Consider

Some of the other factors to consider when choosing the right kitchen doors for your space include the colour and design of the doors. Colour is an important factor as it can affect the appearance of your room. Light colours can make your kitchen space feel brighter, whereas richer or woodgrain colours can feel more homely. Another factor when choosing kitchen doors is whether or not you want to use handles. A popular design for kitchen cabinets at the moment are handle-less doors, which can present a streamlined finish. However, some people do find this too clinical and prefer traditional handles.
