    "High gloss kitchens are easy to maintain in the sense of cleaning but if you use abrasive cleaning products it will damage the gloss over time . Only use a small amount of fairy liquid and a damp cloth to clean . There two types of gloss doors A sprayed and B vinyl wrapped . My preferred choice would be a sprayed finish as in a environment in which there's alot of heat vinyls if not sealed properly can peel and crack over time . Main disadvantage of a gloss kitchen is if it gets scratch you can repair. Unlike a painted kitchen or natural wood door can be repaired to a certain extent"

    "Laminate gloss is great if you're on budget but can change colour overtime.

    The acrylic is great if you'd like to bounce lots of light in the room. We do acrylic on our kitchens and bedrooms furniture but paint it first. So its paint, then acrylic and finished with epoxy resins to provide long lasting effect.

    Only downside I get acrylic is scratches. so if you have kids or pets, then its not advisable."

    Ideal surface for keeping clean using the appropriate cleaning advise
    I would not advise this for a family with little children.
    Most of my customers are very satisfied with these type of cupboards"

    "High gloss units can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer they are generally a very low maintenance option and generally easy wipe clean products."
