The Downsides To The Increasingly Popular Matte Black Cabinet Trend

0 12

Matte black cabinets make smudges more visible because there is no glare to help hide these stains. This is because the matte surface does not reflect light. If you have ever run your fingers over a matte surface, you are probably familiar with the material’s gritty texture. When you touch matte cabinets, any oils or dirt on your hands can catch onto the surface, resulting in visible stains. Slick, glossy cabinets do not pull grime off your hands as easily.

This problem is amplified for those who install matte cabinets with no hardware, like those shown in the photo above. When you have a handle to use to open and close the cabinets, you can avoid touching them directly. Those without hardware require you to touch the surface every time. This makes those pesky fingerprints unavoidable. Interior Designer Jordan Samson shared a TikTok video detailing his own experience with this issue. In the clip, the content creator even labeled matte black cabinets without hardware as one of the worst interior design trends.
