Lucy Searle added this to Kitchen Conundrum: Gloss or Matt Kitchen Cabinets?13 June 2018

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.

Anne Ellard Design added this to How to Choose the Right Finish for New Kitchen Cabinets5 June 2015

Advantages of mattThe main advantage of matt-finish cabinet fronts is the fact that fingerprints, scratches and other imperfections are far less noticeable than on gloss-finish fronts. This doesn’t mean that there are no fingerprints or marks that show, it just means that you don’t see them as much due to the lack of light reflecting on the surface.The colour of matt-finish cabinets can look more consistent than gloss ones. This is because there is no reflection of light to make some areas of the cabinet fronts look brighter or darker than others. Notice how the colours in the kitchen pictured here look far more consistent than those in the red and black gloss kitchen above.
