4 Ways to Add Storage in your Home Office

Matt Finish or Gloss Finish? Which works Well for YOU?


In creating a brand new space, the conversation of finish always comes up. Whether it is the kitchen or wardrobe, the finish defines the look of the entire space and can impact the remaining interior design. ModSpace.in has several finishes, but basics of finishes start with matt vs. gloss finishes. Before even getting into whether you want a laminate finish or an acrylic finish, the first step is to decided whether you want a matt or a glass. A matt or gloss finish dramatically makes up the look of the entire space, whether it is a kitchen or a wardrobe. Each style has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Check out our guide below on which finish would work best for you.

Matt Finish: The matt finish is often seen in traditional layouts and furniture designs, but it is steadily growing popular in modern kitchen and wardrobe designs. The matt finish gives a very muted and understated appearance, and adds an element of sophistication to  a given space.

  • Advantages of Matt Finish
    • Due to its muted appearance, imperfections, such as scratches and finger prints are less noticeable and can easily be camouflaged within the cabinetry
    • There is increased color consistency. Because there is no light or reflection on the cabinet, the finish appears more consistent and smooth
  • Disadvantages of Matt Finish
    • The matt finish does not reflect light, but it absorbs light, so one has to be careful in choosing a matt finish for a smaller kitchen design. The darker matt colors especially can make a space feel smaller, rather than larger.
    • The matt finish is not as smooth as the gloss finish, which can make it a little more difficult to clean. However, the cleaning process is still fairly straightforward.

Gloss Finish: The gloss finish is extremely popular for modern interiors. Many homeowners are opting for a high gloss finish for their modular kitchens or modular wardrobes. The gloss has a shiny finish, which reflects light

  • Advantages of Gloss Finish
    • The glossy finish reflects light, which is great for smaller spaces: such as small kitchen layouts or small wardrobe designs. The reflective nature of the gloss gives the illusion that a space is larger than it actually is.
    • The smooth surface of the gloss cabinetry makes them very easy to clean, requiring a simple use of a microfiber cloth.
  • Disadvantages of Gloss Finish
    • The reflective nature of the gloss finish shows imperfections very quickly. Therefore, finger prints and scratches are immediately visible. This is especially common with dark gloss tones, where the imperfections show up even more than on the lighter colors.
