We are often asked whether it is better to go for Matte, Satin or high gloss finishes. There is no ‘right’ answer because it is largely down to personal choice. However the one caveat we would make is that if you have children and pets who have a tendency to put grubby hands and paws everywhere, a gloss finish may be a better option. Quite simply, it is easier to wipe grubby stains of a high gloss surface than a matte surface.
