Did you know the cabinet finish you choose makes an enormous impact on the look and feel of your space? Painted cabinets with a high gloss finish make a statement and they’ve made their way into all areas of design. You see their glossy sheen all over national design magazines like Veranda and Architectural Digest.
It’s Hard to Find a Cabinet Company that Provides a Quality High Gloss Finish
In St. Louis, finding a cabinetry company that is willing to make high gloss finished cabinets is hard to come by because the process is hard. Achieving that super high gloss smooth finish without dust particles getting in the way is not an easy task. Plus it isn’t the way things have “been done” and cabinet companies are slow to change. Most cabinet companies want to give you unfinished cabinets and ask you to hire your own painter to do the process at your house. Who wants to deal with that headache when you have a better option? Stone Hall Cabinetry is your answer for cutting edge, premium quality, high gloss, factory painted and delivered cabinetry finishes.
High Gloss Paint is Historic
Over recent years high gloss cabinets have become increasingly popular due to their spectacular light reflecting visual appearance. But did you know the glossy paint finish has been around so long that George Washington sought high gloss appeal for his green dining room at his Mount Vernon home? He chose it because an “overcoat of sheen further intensified its color.”
We Are Often Asked About How to Clean High Gloss Cabinetry
The sheen of your cabinets dramatically affects the way your kitchen and bathrooms look, but also how well the cabinets function and how durable they’ll be. Renowned home expert, Bob Vila, weighs in on high gloss cabinet function:
“With all that opening, closing, cleaning, and other handling, kitchen cabinets endure a good deal more wear and tear than other surfaces—something to keep in mind when choosing a paint finish. Higher-gloss finishes stand up better to daily use and are far easier to clean without dulling the color over time. So skip matte, satin, and eggshell finishes in favor of semi gloss or high gloss.”
In short, easy cleaning is one of the biggest advantages of high-gloss kitchens. Any stains and marks simply wipe off, minimizing the effort you need to put into cleaning.
Make Any Space Bigger with High Gloss
In opposition to a matte painted finish, which absorbs light and flattens it out, gloss cabinet doors come with a shiny, light-reflecting finish and their light reflection can actually help spaces feel larger and more open than they actually are.
Go for the gloss. And remember, you always have the option of customizing any high-gloss painted finish on all Stone Hall Cabinetry orders.
