High Gloss Kitchens: How, What, Why?

High Gloss Kitchens

Today, we’d like to take a little of your time to talk about High Gloss Kitchens, and explain a little bit about them. The first question you might be asking is “what exactly IS a High Gloss Kitchen”? Well, put simply; they’re kitchens with an impeccable glossy sheen, provided by a special treatment to each material.

The effect isn’t simply cosmetic, either; there is a practical function to the High Gloss Kitchen that makes them an absolute must for the modern consumer. For starters, they’re extremely durable; they will withstand a great amount of stress, be it scratching, burning, water damage, so on and so forth, and they will keep up that damage resistance for a very long time. Secondly, they’re incredible versatile, both from a functionality standpoint and from a style standpoint. Regarding the former, the glossier surfaces make them far easier to clean and maintain, aided along by their natural sheen and reflection.

As far as the latter goes, few things betray an air of the modern quite like a good shine, and more or less anything will work alongside a glossed surface, no matter it’s style. In most instances, the surfaces that can be finished with gloss include Glass, Laminate, Lacquer, and Acrylic. It is worth noting however, that certain colours and certain shapes reflect light better then others; for example, a flat, black surface is likely to reflect more surface then a textured, brightly coloured one would.

If it all seems like something that’s a little out of your price range, there’s no need to fret; high gloss kitchens are not inherently expensive. In fact, it’s very possible to find a number of companies that provide various forms of finish for a multitude of surfaces, with one certain to suit your price range whatever it may be.

The kitchens we provide all include High Gloss surfaces as standard. Indeed, our very name can be roughly translated to “heavenly”, and what is more heavenly that glossy surfaces? It makes sense that we take a particular interest! If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us directly for consultation.
