If you've ever picked out paint before, you already know what "sheen" is. It's the relative "shininess" or "glossiness" of a finish. Showplace offers all its finishes in your choice of two sheens. "Satin" is what most people would consider normal sheen for home cabinetry. "Matte" is a little bit softer, a little bit flatter than satin.
We'd love to show you the difference, but it's almost impossible to illustrate sheen accurately on a screen or a printed page. We've created a video to help you visualize the difference between our satin and matte sheens, both in terms of reaction to light angle, and reflective properties. But such demonstrations are approximations, at best. Visit your Showplace dealer
to really understand sheen.
