Matt Finish Kitchens

Matt and painted wood finish kitchens deliver a real depth of finish and work really well in contemporary finishes because they offer a broader choice of colour finishes too.

Matt finish kitchens don’t reflect light like a gloss version. They deliver a flat look but give a strong sense of depth of colour and they work particularly well in modern and contemporary settings.

In the world of kitchen design, matt finish kitchens are often seen as the epitome of understated elegance and versatile style. Unlike their glossy counterparts, which can reflect light and create varying effects depending on the lighting, matt finishes deliver a consistently smooth and subdued look that appeals to those seeking a more sophisticated and serene ambiance.

Matt finishes, available in painted wood or other materials, often evoke a sense of warmth and intimacy that can feel less clinical and more inviting. With a broad spectrum of colours to choose from, matt kitchens offer a palette rich in possibilities, allowing homeowners to experiment and tailor their space to their unique taste and lifestyle.

Texture plays a key role in the charm of matt finishes. Whether smooth and sleek or imbued with a tactile, textured surface, the matt effect adds depth and character to the kitchen’s aesthetic. Combined with natural wood finishes, matt paints create a harmonious contrast that can be both modern and timeless. The fusion of different materials and finishes leads to a layered and dimensional look, where each element complements and enhances the others.

Practicality is another strength of matt finishes. Known to ‘hide’ imperfections, they are generally more forgiving of scratches and everyday wear and tear. For families with children, where kitchens are often bustling hubs of activity, the matt finish’s resistance to fingerprints and smudge marks becomes an invaluable feature. The look remains pristine and elegant, even in the face of daily life’s little challenges.

But beyond the aesthetic and practical appeal, matt finish kitchens resonate on a deeper level. They are often associated with a sense of calm and tranquillity, creating a space that encourages relaxation and connection. The subtlety of the matt surface absorbs rather than reflects light, producing a gentle glow that can transform a kitchen into a sanctuary, a place where meals are prepared with love, and conversations flow freely.

At Nicholas Hythe Kitchens, we understand the allure and potential of matt finish kitchens. Our expert designers are adept at working with this versatile finish, crafting spaces that reflect the personalities and needs of our clients. From the selection of colours and materials to the integration of functional features and design accents, we create kitchens that are both beautiful and functional.

Mixing and matching worktop finishes is becoming increasingly popular. For example, combining two finishes such as granite and a wood area (for food preparation) – can provide both a highly practical and visually stunning effect. Quartz and granite are also very popular.

The beauty of glass

People are looking to make their kitchens easier to maintain by choosing glass upstands and splashbacks rather than tiles. Choosing a striking coloured glass – especially if complementing neutral coloured furniture – also allows clients to individualise their kitchen.
