Paint can do a lot of amazing things for a space, but something a lot of people tend to overlook is the power of its finish. High gloss, for example, is a simple trick to making any surface look much more glamorous. One of the best places in which to take advantage of it is the kitchen.
High gloss kitchen cabinets are unique but create some amazing results. Their lacquered finish is very clean and streamlined, making it perfect for a modern space, but can also be used in more traditional kitchens, as well. High gloss cabinets are great for small, dark spaces, too, because it will reflect light and make the kitchen appear brighter and larger.
You can use a high gloss finish on any cabinet color. While white is definitely the most popular, this finish can heighten any color and bring it to the next level, including black or even an unexpected color such as blue or green. The right accents and hardware paired with it will help create a kitchen that is magazine-ready. Some cabinets are made with a smooth, high gloss look, but you can also paint regular kitchen cabinets with the finish if you wanted to makeover your existing ones.
To show you just how stunning this effect can be, here are 10 examples of high gloss kitchen cabinets that got it right.
