High-gloss kitchen doors – the look of 2010

So, you are in the market for a new kitchen. There is a lot to consider before getting started on your project, from the practical to the aesthetic. in this article we will explore the effect that the choice of high gloss kitchen doors has on these two considerations. Glossy finish kitchen doors can be beautiful and strong, but there are a few things to know before choosing.

First of all, not all high gloss kitchen doors are created equal. You basically get what you pay for, as always in life. There are four types of high gloss finishes that are widely used in the manufacture of kitchen doors. There are melamine, vinyl or PVC, acrylic and gloss lacquered. As you go from melamine to lacquer, quality and price increase. Lacquer has a much brighter and deeper color finish than melamine which, while relatively durable, looks flat by comparison.

Second, the origin of the kitchen will have an impact on the overall look and quality. It is widely recognized that the best quality high gloss kitchen doors come from Europe, especially Italy, Germany and Scandinavia. I don’t know why it should be like this, but it is true that these countries were pioneers in the aspect.

Clearly, one of the most important choices you will make, apart from the material used in the production of the door, will be the color of your kitchen doors. What can it be, striking striking primary colors or something more subtle. Part of your choice will depend on the size of your kitchen and the amount of natural light available. In general, it is true that the bigger your kitchen, the more daring you can be. I recently completed a design for a client where we divided the kitchen into three distinct areas. In one we used high gloss burnt orange doors, in the opposite side we used zebrano finished cabinets and in the third area gloss black. These surrounded a bright white kitchen island topped with an ice white corian countertop. Now, it seems like this shouldn’t work, but I can tell you that the end result was really amazing. I think this means that you can be a lot more adventurous than you think, especially if you are going to be living on your property for years to come.

In addition to providing a truly stunning finish, high gloss kitchen doors last longer than many people realize. The finish is resistant to chips and scratches and although it tends to show finger marks, a damp cloth removes them easily, leaving that beautiful glossy finish that reflects natural light throughout the kitchen.

So in conclusion, choose wisely, be bold, and have a kitchen to be proud of.
