New Matte Finish Appliances: What You Need to Know

November 6, 2020

Are you in the market for new appliances? Major investments like this need to be thought out and well planned. Things to consider include:

  • Budget: Are you replacing all of your current appliances at once or will you be purchasing a few at a time?
  • Lifestyle: Do you regularly entertain visitors or have a large family that requires extra burners on a stove or an extra-capacity washing machine and dryer?
  • Space: Will you be looking for space savers such as wall ovens? Or will you have the space to accommodate a separate stovetop and oven?

Once those decisions have been finalized, it is time to start deciding on brands and appliance finishes.

Matte finish appliances can have several benefits. If you're considering styling your kitchen or home with matte appliances, here are some things to consider and benefits to keep in mind.

Matte Matches Every Style

Matte finish is making quite the name for itself in every home decorative scheme. The white and black matte finishes complement the farmhouse style, and yet it can soften up or even intensify the most industrial space.

Matte Is Customizable

To add an even more personal flair, we encourage you to customize your appliances with various handles and knobs. Pro Tip: Change these up every couple of years to create an entirely new look without the heavy price tag!

Matte Is Easy To Clean

Once you clean your matte finish appliance, odds are you will have a tough time transitioning to anything else ever again. Unlike its equally popular counterpart stainless steel, matte does not require any special cleaning. Simply get the washcloth damp and swipe. Matte also doesn't have the tendency that stainless steel does to show fingerprints and watermarks.

Magnets Stick To Matte

For those of you who thought magnets were a thing of the past...they're back! If you want to put take out menus, family pictures, pages out of a coloring book, or anything else on your refrigerator, you can. Matte finish supports magnets.

Matte Colors Vary Brand To Brand

Matte colors and hues can vary slightly from one brand to the next. If you're planning to switch all of your appliances to a matte finish, we recommend sticking with one brand, particularly if you're getting black or slate color appliances. Each brand formulates their colors a little differently so to create consistency within your home, now is not the time to mix and match.
