High gloss kitchens are very popular a number of different reasons, from their chic, sleek appearance, to their design features and ease of cleaning.

Enhancing the Gloss
The beauty of gloss kitchen décor is the beautiful aesthetical appeal it has. There’s something sleek about gloss kitchens that give them that additional edge that other kitchen décor styles lack. Whilst they may look bold and beautiful the moment you have them installed, there are extra features you can include to help enhance the gloss and really make your kitchen stand out. One of the most important things to consider when it comes to gloss is lighting. The lighting in your kitchen is key to making your gloss units or countertops shine and glisten, so it’s important to include some bright, white lighting throughout your kitchen. You could even introduce some added lighting fixtures to the bottom of your cabinets, as this will enhance the worktop space you have and create a stunning focal point at the same time.
Cleaning your Gloss
Whilst high gloss kitchens are easy to clean, there are some key points to remember to ensure you maintain that bold shine and sleek finish. Start by wiping down your gloss area with a microfibre cloth, as this will remove any loose dirt that has gathered there. You can then apply some warm water and soap, or detergent if the area is particularly dirty, and again wipe down with a microfibre cloth. The beauty of a microfibre cloth is that it helps to keep the area shiny, which is exactly what you want for your gloss kitchen! Finish by drying the area with a dry cloth, as you don’t want any of the residue to dry and leave streaks or marks where you didn’t dry it in time! For days when it’s not necessary to wash down your cabinets and worktops completely, you can use some delicate gloss kitchen wipes that are available in most major supermarkets and local stores, as this will help to freshen the surface and prevent any dirt from really settling on the glossy surface.
Introduce New Materials
It’s really easy to introduce some additional materials to your gloss kitchen, as the materials work really well together. One of the most popular features to include in a white gloss kitchen is laminate/wooden flooring. This combination of high gloss and wood creates a stunning balance that adds character and style to the room. You can really enhance the chic, modern feel when you add a stylish floor option such as wooden flooring. Similarly, introducing some stainless steel to your kitchen will also help to enhance the décor and make your interiors pop with style. Stainless steel can be introduced in a number of different ways, from bold faucets, to delicate cabinet handles and pulls. You can even look at introducing a bold cooker hood or some unique stainless steel kitchen appliances to add character to the worktops. These extra materials will really help to make your kitchens décor stand out and ooze character, as well as heightening the overall contemporary, modern feel.
