While choosing cabinets or countertops you will have options of different surface finishes. A current kitchen trend is cabinets and countertops with matte finish. With this style the surface has a flat or non-glossy surface.
Matte finishes are best if you are looking for a country or traditional style for your kitchen. This type of surface hides imperfections such as scratches but are harder to clean than a glossy finish. If you wanting a contemporary look, a gloss finish is a better choice.
Matte finishes have a modern look and create a trendy look in the home. This may seem paradoxical since modern or contemporary looks tend to have gloss finishes but a matte finish provides a stylish country or traditional look that adds texture to your cabinets and countertops.
Matte finishes are not only easier to clean but also they hide fingerprints, smudges, and scratches allowing owners to clean their cabinets less often. In homes with glossy cabinets matte countertops prevent a feeling of too much gloss or shine in the room.
Some people believe that matte finishes while hiding imperfections such as dust, grease, and other grime also highlight these imperfections when being cleaned because they are more difficult to remove. Matte surfaces tend to show streaks or other evidence of the grime. Often owners of matte finished cabinets feel they spend more time cleaning them than they did their old gloss finish kitchen cabinets.
