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 for adding contrast and depth to a kitchen.
Gray is so slick 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 allows this color to harmonize so well with others. By choosing the right shade, you can add elements of glitter for a cozy atmosphere or keep it monochromatic for a more modern look.
Benefits of mate
One of the benefits of a matte cabinet door is that blemishes, such as fingerprints and scratches, are much less obvious than cabinets that have a glossy finish. This is not to say that they don’t appear at all, they do, but it is much less noticeable.
Also, the color of something with a matte finish will often appear more consistent than that of a glossy finish. This is due to the fact that light does not reflect as much from a matte finish as from a glossy finish. Reflective light can often create the illusion of different shades.
Disadvantages of mate
A matte finished closet door absorbs light instead of reflecting it. This results in a less vibrant appearance. You also need to take into account the fact that matte cabinet doors don’t reflect light, so they won’t help your space feel bigger. This means that matte is often chosen for large spaces, while gloss is generally chosen for small spaces.
Matte cabinet fronts are not as easy to clean as their glossy counterparts, having said that, they are not difficult to clean. Just be sure to use a microfiber cloth so you don’t scratch your cabinets.
If you are using a laminate material for your cabinets, be sure to review the samples carefully and that the material has a smooth finish. Some matte finish laminates have a texture, this means there are many nooks and crannies for dirt and dust to hide. However, this shouldn’t stop you from buying textured laminates because they can look great in the kitchen. Just consider the pros and cons between them.
