Matt two-tone unitsCompare this open-plan kitchen with the next one – both have similar colour schemes, but this room has matt cabinetry and the following one has gloss. Why matt here? The clue is in the furniture and lighting – both are period-style, which flatters a subtler matt finish more than the glitzier-looking gloss.Need a kitchen designer or fitter with reviews you can check out?

LWK London Kitchens added this to 10 Small Design Details That Can Transform Your Kitchen3 March 2017

Favour fingerprint-proof cabinet doorsIf fingerprints on your cabinetry bothers you, then it’s best to go for a matt rather than gloss finish as matt kitchens don’t show marks or smudges so prominently. This is often a concern for parents of small children, but if you still prefer a gloss kitchen, you can partially overcome this by teaming matt base cabinets with gloss wall units. That way, you still get a glossy look but these units are out of reach of sticky little fingers. If you opt for gloss, the colour and type of finish you choose can also impact on how visible finger marks are. Darker gloss colours show marks more than paler tones, while a glass kitchen also reveals smudges more easily than one with a laser or laminate finish.What small details have made a big impact on the look or use of your kitchen?
