Hamptons kitchen cupboards full gloss or semi gloss?
Hamptons kitchen cupboards are better on semi gloss (or satin) as this styling is belonging to more traditional houses which need to keep the level of glossiness managed. I know it as I did it for my home - all carcasses in water proof marine plywood for durability and two pack semi gloss white painted HDF (high density fiber board which is the closest to natural timber) doors. Elegant appearance with very durable structure.
I assumethere are no hard and fast rules . You'd almost need pictures of the kitchen and dining and any other rooms that can be seen from the kitchen . And then you'd probably also need the window placement details in relation to the sun .
Gloss always seems more luxurious to me , but a ( presumably white ) gloss on the cupboards , a polished and varnished wooden floor , and say stainless hobs and white gloss plantation blinds and white gloss tiles may be too shiny ?
Conversely , a design with say lots of rattan and textured tile flooring may need gloss cupboards for that luxe feel ?
Advice on kitchen cupboard finish greatly appreciated!
Before and after: from linen cupboard to study
Laundry room vs laundry cupboard?
Re-coat or replace kitchen cupboard doors
Depends if there are chairs to sat in hahahaha . . . . . . . . . . .
Full gloss is too modern for a coastal or Hamptons home.
semi gloss, reserve full gloss for very small trim elements, and then only if they're perfectly smooth. Full gloss shows off any and every imperfection in craftsmanship.
We recommend and use 'Satin' finish for Hamptons kitchens :)
