Smaller kitchens

High gloss kitchens are a great way of making a space appear bigger than it really is, so if you have a smaller kitchen then it could be beneficial to install high gloss kitchen units and high gloss kitchen doors.

Kitchens for non-families

Once you start a family, every decision about the design of your home comes with the kids in mind. This should be no different with the kitchen, and as much as we would love to tell you that a high gloss kitchen finish would be perfect for your family, we feel like we would be doing you a disservice.

It is important to note that marks, spillages, fingerprints and any other imperfections appear easier on a high gloss kitchen finish than any other surface. With this in mind, a matt kitchen may be a more appropriate finish for your kitchen redesign.
