23 Awesome High Gloss Kitchen Cabinets Ideas
High gloss, flat-panel cabinets are an attractive addition to contemporary or modern kitchen remodels and are more suited to contemporary style kitchens as opposed to old-fashioned, wooden ones. Flat-panel cabinets work best with stainless steel appliances and black or white flooring is the perfect match for high gloss finishes. These high gloss cabinets also have a sleek modern appearance and look great in traditional or country-styled kitchens. And, the matte finish on high gloss cabinets makes them ideal for use in children's rooms.
When choosing high gloss kitchen cabinets design ideas, you need to consider the cabinet's finish - its texture, gloss, matte or clear. A cabinet's finish affects the way people see it, whether it's appealing or repulsive, says interior designer Ruth Ginsberg. For example, a high gloss finish that is matte makes a room appear larger and airy. On the other hand, a high gloss finish that is shiny creates an atmosphere of high luxury and elegance. To get the exact effect, choose cabinets based on their finish.
In addition, high gloss kitchen cabinets can also be useful for creating a stunning, contemporary look. "They're so lovely and clean - it's almost like going back to the 'good old days,' " says Ginsberg. Colors and materials such as granite and stainless steel are also appropriate for high gloss kitchens. However, it's important to choose colors and materials that don't clash with each other. In other words, stick to neutral colors, such as white, beige, black or even some browns - you'll find the effect is surprisingly effective. And, high gloss cabinets with granite countertops also look great in a natural-stone kitchen, as stone tends to contrast well with most colors.
