Over the last few years, kitchen trends have seen a definite shift towards matt kitchens. Glossy finishes are still very popular, but we know you will have more and more customers coming into your showroom asking for a matt look. It’s easy to see why.
Matt kitchens are popular for their look and versatility. They can be used to create a modern or traditional kitchen design that looks beautiful. When paired with on-trend neutral finishes, the results are fantastic.
Their pristine look is easy to maintain. In particular, the Supermatt finishes are easy to clean, durable and have anti-fingerprint technology. This helps to preserve the look of the kitchen and makes it the perfect choice for the family home.
Here’s some tips on how to style Supermatt doors:
Keep It Neutral
More and more homeowners are opting for neutral colours and earthy tones that work seamlessly with a number of different options. These colours are calming and elegant, while at the same time, giving you the design freedom to add bolder colours elsewhere.
Grey is the hottest neutral tone and continues to grow in popularity. That is why we introduced 3 different shades of grey into our Vetreo range.
Mix & Match
We understand that not everyone will be drawn to a completely matt kitchen, but there are plenty of other options.
The mixing and matching of different textures and styles within kitchen design has remained extremely popular. Try mixing these modern matts with high gloss or woodgrain finishes. This contrasting look will create the ‘wow’ factor that is so sought after today.
Handleless kitchen doors are still a popular choice for those wanting a seamless finish. Create this effortlessly elegant look with the addition of Blum Tip-On.
Top It Off
Create a subtle contrast by mixing matt units with a natural woodgrain or glossy worktop. Here’s our top 3 colour combination suggestions:
Top any matt cabinetry off with a super white worktop like Glacier for a crisp clean style.
Ground lighter neutral shades with a dark worktop like Mistral’s Tongaro.
For an elegant all white kitchen, you could top Frost doors with Mistral’s new Lunas worktop.
