The finish you choose for your kitchen countertops will have a big effect on your kitchen’s overall style and functionality. You generally have two choices: gloss or matte, each of which has advantages and disadvantages. In today’s blog post, Concept Bath Systems, Inc. discusses the pros and cons of choosing a matte finish for your countertops.
Matte Finish Pros
Matte finishes are very trendy at the moment. If you want your kitchen to look modern, then you can’t go wrong with matte. A matte countertop looks sophisticated and textured, which can provide a welcome contrast to the rest of the kitchen, particularly if you have a lot of glossy or shiny design elements.
Matte countertops can prevent the kitchen from looking monotonous. As an expert in kitchen and bathroom design, we also like matte finishes because they are excellent at concealing messes. Matte countertops are easier to maintain than glossy countertops because they don’t show smudges, scratches and stains as easily. A matte countertop looks smooth and subtle, and the finish can allow small imperfections to blend in.
Matte Finish Cons
Matte countertops may not be the best choice for small kitchens because they absorb light, which can make the kitchen feel smaller. Matte finishes may be able to hide smudges, but they present their own difficulties when it comes to maintenance. You need to learn how to clean them properly if you want to avoid leaving any streaks behind.
