It can be easy to get overwhelmed with the different options available for your home. Whether it be the first time you’ve considered changing your family kitchen or if you carried out the process previously, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is whether to choose a gloss kitchen or a matt kitchen.

Why pick Gloss Kitchen Units?

One of the primary benefits of implementing a gloss kitchen is the added space it can make your kitchen seem to have. Gloss kitchens and more particularly worktops reflect light, giving your kitchen a perceived larger space than reality.  The reflective gloss kitchen surfaces also make your kitchen lighter and brighter and if your kitchen receives any natural light, then gloss could certainly be the option for you.

Gloss kitchens can give the perception of a larger space and can be ideal for smaller kitchen spaces. If the size of your kitchen is something that holds it back – gloss features could be the best and most cost-effective solution to your problems.

One of the most common reasons that people will choose a gloss kitchen is due to its aesthetically pleasing nature. A tactic often employed is to couple gloss kitchens with contrasting kitchen doors in bold colours as these will bounce off each other and provide an interesting aesthetic, creating your own unique look.

It is not just the way your kitchen looks that will need to be considered, the practicality of it is also vitally important. Luckily, gloss kitchens may be the most practical of all! They are well known for being remarkably easy to clean compared to other surfaces and can be very easily wiped down giving a brand-new look after every clean.

What about Matt Kitchens?

Gloss kitchens may be very easy to clean but you will find yourself doing this regularly. This is because gloss surfaces pick up marks like fingerprints very easily, whereas matt kitchens disguise these imperfections well.

At Kitchen Warehouse, we have a vast selection of matt styles and colours. As part of this range, we have matt acrylic units as well as handleless matt doors for you to choose from. These can perfectly complement a number of kitchen designs or decoration ideas. This vast choice allows you to pick matt units to match your existing worktop materials or appliance colours.

These are ideal for adding a contemporary touch to your home, regardless of its age or layout. By adding matt kitchen units, you can add a modern twist to your home.
