Matte VS Glossy Countertop: Which Is Right For You?

Matte VS Glossy Countertops

K&D Countertops offers over 150 stunning countertop designs to choose from. These designs are broken into many different collections, such as Luxury, Marble, Coastal, Waterstone, and many more. K&D Countertops fabricates and installs Cambria countertops, which offers many unique colors and finishes for our homeowners to pick from. The Matte and Glossy finishes come with different qualities that appeal to specific tastes. Let’s compare the two to help you decide which finish suites your personal style best.

Matte Finish

From lipsticks to nail polish to countertops, Matte finishes have taken the world by storm. Matte finishes have become the latest trend for home designers. Many homeowners are opting for the chic, sleek and modern finish that Matte provides. Our Matte designs also have a low-sheen finish that helps diminish the appearance of stains. Stains and spills are less visible when you’re preparing your favorite dishes. When they do appear, you can easily wipe them off and you’re good to go. Cambria has worked hard to create a Matte finish that has the same stain resistance as the High Gloss. The Matte finish also requires a bit less maintenance, so you won’t have to clean your countertops as often to hide any imperfections. If you want a muted and modern countertop that hides imperfections, Matte is your perfect finish.


Glossy Finish

If you’re looking for a classic and contemporary style, high-gloss countertops are the way to go. In terms of style, the high-gloss sheen gives off a warm and welcoming appearance. The surface attracts light from all over your kitchen and reflects it across the shiny finish. A lustrous finish can also add depth to your top, and complement the solid colored cabinets and drawers that surround your kitchen. High Gloss also works well when it comes to hiding the shiny oils from our fingers. Glossy finishes are also a little bit less expensive as opposed to Matte finishes. High Gloss finishes are more readily available across quartz, granite, etc. than Matte surfaces. However, K&D Countertops offers Matte finishes in all Cambria designs. Glossy sets the standard with a brilliant finish, contemporary style and wide range of colors.

Which Option Do You Prefer?

In conclusion, both countertops have beautiful finishes that are non porous and bacteria resistant. The Matte and Glossy finishes both have the same lifetime warranty and health benefits. These quartz countertops are also low maintenance and are resistant to staining. The Matte and Glossy surfaces will hold their value for a very long time.

If you’re looking for a trendy top that hides fingerprints and smudges well, go with Matte. If you want a more contemporary finish with high shine and depth, your best option is to go with Glossy. In the end, it all comes down to your personal preferences. These are both gorgeous countertops with spectacular finishes.
