Kitchen designs are highly susceptible to fashion trends and fads, from colour schemes to the various styles, to finishes. Not least of these, is the choice between a gloss, satin or matte finish (with a myriad of variations in between.) Your personal preference and lifestyle will always be the most important consideration, but most people want to be sure that in decades to come their expensive investment will still be fashionable, or whether they have been left behind, by following a short-term trend.
In 2019 matte finishes have once again topped out as the most popular choice according to surveys and fashion magazines. This article will attempt to compare the good and the not-so-good of different finishes. The lighter countertops will reflect more light and emphasise the stately appearance of dark wood, solid surface, or other material used on cabinet facings and doors.
Conversely, one of the darker shades of Sensa, such as Abyss or Gabon can be contrasted brilliantly with lighter cabinets in Beech, Oak, Cherry, or white to enhance the impression of elegance and style. One of the benefits of such contrast is that it coordinates well with almost any other colour, from bright hues to more subtle and chromatic colours. By merely changing the colour of your accessories in the kitchen, you can give it an entirely “new” look every few years, while retaining the distinguished feel.
Textures in suede, matte or polished surface will complement your unique expression for a truly bespoke kitchen.
