Blending matt with gloss cabinets softens modern kitchens and makes them look far more contemporary and appealing
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mix and match two-tone unitsThe dining furniture in this part-glossy, part-matt kitchen is as modern as the cabinetry, which suits it just fine. Why does this room hit the right note? The chairs are upholstered rather than hard-edged and shiny, which chimes with the matt peninsula cabinetry. The contrasting matt finish on these units is also a pleasing foil for the shine of the rest of the units, providing solid colour where the wall cupboards also add reflection and bounce light around. The muted tones of the palette also contribute to an overall softness in this kitchen.
