Are you a big fan of grayscale interiors? So are we! Discount Kitchens has a great selection of grayscale cabinetry that would fit nicely in a grayscale kitchen. However, today, we want to focus your attention on our matte black kitchen cabinets. Here are some possibilities to consider.
Matte Black Kitchen Cabinets
You heard us right. We have matte black kitchen cabinets available here at our store in Toronto. Matte black isn’t a very common style for kitchen cabinets, which we find to be quite a shame. It’s a very unique and laid back look. While black cabinetry has been gaining in popularity in the past ten years, matte is still a bit on the unusual side. Why is that?
Matte Vs. High Gloss
While matte may not be a very common finish to opt for, high gloss, on the other hand, is. What is it that people like more about high gloss?
High gloss comes with the benefit of reflecting light quite strongly. So, even if you don’t have a lot of light coming in from outside, your kitchen may seem brighter with high gloss. This strong reflection of light also makes your kitchen interior have a more sharp feel to it. If you like a sleek, sharp interior, this is a plus. However, if you want your kitchen to look more cozy while still implementing dark colors, matte is the better option.
Matte finish, if you’re unfamiliar, is the opposite of glossy. It has a less sleek texture to it and doesn’t reflect. It’s closer to the texture you would expect from wood or a non-shiny plastic. This finish doesn’t reflect much light, so your kitchen may look darker without adequate lighting. However, with adequate lighting, the lack of reflection can simply add an element of softness to the interior.
Grayscale Kitchen Decor
When working with matte cabinetry, it can be hard to find decor that compliments it nicely. High gloss can look good with most common kitchen decor. This is because kitchen decor is often made of equally shiny materials such as stainless steel, glass, or shiny plastic. Things made of these materials may clash with matte cabinetry. However, because these cabinets are black, that gives us a lot of wiggle room regarding color.
When searching for the right decor to match with matte black cabinetry, try to find other things without much reflection. A ceramic vase without any exterior glaze would look lovely. Consider, also, a wooden crate to pile apples in, rather than a shiny, glass bowl. Matching things to a matte finish may be a bit of a puzzle, but it’s extremely fun to explore the possibilities.
