Finishes for Black Kitchens
It used to be the case that dark tones were most often used in very spacious rooms or those with a lot of natural lighting; however, today's contemporary design goes for this chromatic range in all types of projects, rooms and surfaces regardless of size or the amount of natural light available. Thanks to the benefits it offers at a creative level, black adapts perfectly to a variety of spaces and designs, regardless of whether it is applied in matte finish or gloss finish, with both options adding value to the project.
Matte Black Kitchens
The matte effect has become very popular in interior design, especially among contract professionals, because of the sense of sophistication it conveys. Together with the elegance of the colour black, the matte look gives us a very refined effect. To give some examples of how to use this finish, you could go for black metallic-look furniture in a matte finish, or a countertop that emulates black stone or marble in a matte finish.
Glossy Black Kitchens
A kitchen with glossy black surfaces also provides multiple advantages since they can be very useful for enhancing the luminosity of the room. At the same time, a gloss finish usually hides dirt while still conveying a restrained, distinguished appearance.
