Advantages of gray
Gray is a common occurrence in modern kitchens. That is, because gray goes well with almost all the colors with which it is combined. In fact, some people think that adding a gray finish is one of the best methods of adding contrast and depth to a kitchen.
Gray is so clever that it gives the designer freedom in all categories, from transitional to modern and even traditional. The fact that there are more than 50 shades of gray (hehe) is what makes this color harmonize so well with the others. By choosing the right shade, you can add elements of brightness for a cozy vibe or keep it monochrome for a more modern look.
Benefits of mate
One of the benefits of a matte cabinet door is that imperfections, such as fingerprints and scratches, are much less noticeable than cabinets that have a glossy finish. This is not to say that they do not appear at all, they do, but it is much less noticeable.
Also, the color of something with a matte finish will often appear more uniform than that of a gloss finish. This is due to the fact that light does not reflect as much off a matte finish as it does on a glossy finish. Reflected light can often create the illusion of different hues.
Disadvantages of matte
A cabinet door with a matte finish absorbs light instead of reflecting it. This results in a less vibrant look. You should also be aware of the fact that matte cabinet doors don’t reflect light, so they won’t help your space feel larger. This means that matte is often chosen for large spaces, while gloss is usually chosen for small spaces.
Matte cabinet fronts are not as easy as their glossy counterparts, however they are not difficult to clean. Just be sure to use a microfiber cloth so you don’t scratch the cabinets.
If you are using a laminate material for your cabinets, make sure you check the samples carefully and that the material has a smooth finish. Some matte-finish laminates are textured, which means there are lots of nooks and crannies for dirt and dust to hide. However, this shouldn’t stop you from buying textured laminates because they can look amazing in the kitchen. Just keep in mind the pros and cons between them.
