Are Gloss Kitchens out of style?

Once the staple of modern kitchen design, over the last few years we have seen a gradual decline in customers opting for Gloss Kitchen cabinets.

Why are Gloss Kitchens becoming less popular?

  • Minimal interiors are declining in popularity as customers are looking to create cosy spaces at home.
  • Gloss kitchens dominated the 2010’s. As we move towards the middle of the 2020’s glossy kitchen cabinets can now appear a little dated.
  • Gloss doors are harder to maintain than matt or textured doors, easily showing up everyday marks and fingerprints.
  • While our Modern Slab Style Door remains a bestseller, more and more customers are opting for Traditional or Shaker style kitchens. As gloss doors are traditionally manufactured in a slab style, this limits the availability of gloss finished cabinetry as a design choice.

What are customers choosing instead?

Black Gloss Kitchen VS Black Matt Kitchens

Super Matt Black kitchens are a more elevated spin on the Black Gloss kitchen. Black kitchens work with almost anything, from stone or wood effect laminate worktops, to white or black quartz. The same goes for handles and hard-wear, choose any finish that matches the rest of your home. You can even mix your metals for a modern and contemporary look.

White Gloss Kitchen VS Bright and Airy Kitchens 

The All-White Gloss Kitchen is being replaced by a light and airy mix of materials. Bring warmth and depth to the kitchen by mixing white doors with wood tones. Or you can create a bright space by using white stone worktops to bounce light around the room, then choosing a door in a classic colour like green or blue.

Cashmere Gloss Kitchens VS Cashmere Matt Kitchens

Cashmere remains one of our most popular door colours, Cashmere Super Matt doors look equally as striking in a Slab or Shaker style and pair beautifully with natural stone (or stone effect) worktops thanks to its neutral undertone, cashmere can be paired with any colour of metal finish for a stylish kitchen.

Grey Gloss Kitchens VS Two Tone Traditional Kitchens

Although grey interiors have waned in popularity in recent years, grey kitchens are still popular. However, customers are opting for softer shades in a more traditional style for a contemporary grey kitchen. Brushed or polished chrome, stainless steel or nickel accessories are the perfect choice for grey cabinetry thanks to its cool undertone. Grey cabinets work best with light and bright worktops, and look especially striking with Calacatta style stone countertops and a matching splashback.

Cream Gloss Kitchen VS Warm Traditional Kitchens 

Cream shaker style cabinetry looks effortlessly elegant in any kitchen. Pair creamy or beige Matt cabinetry with wooden worktops or warm veined quartz, finish with brass accents for a classic and contemporary kitchen design that will never go out of style.
