Kitchen Express are very excited to be releasing the new MATTE finish laminates & acrylic door finishes from NZPanels & their popular brand Prime Laminates


These truly state of the art benchtop laminates & Matte acrylic finish for doors will be a game changer in the current kitchen market - and Kitchen Express are proud to be showcasing these brand-new products in our large showroom in Christchurch.

Matte finishes in everything have become very popular over the last year ...  from homewares, stationary, magazine covers, flooring, furniture & even home claddings, Matte is certainly the new Black! ... which is a good time to explain the truly amazing benefits of this finish when used in kitchen & laundry appliactions.

Trends come & go in everything, especially in kitchen colours & finishes. We all remember the Provence Blue Kitchens of the 90's ... often teamed with some Rimu trim & handles .... Yes, looks come & go - But Prime Laminates new Matte finishes have an invisible feature on their side that will make THIS trend last ....

This invisible advantage is just that .... Finger marks are a thing of the past - Sounds too good to be true we know .... But trust us we've tried! 

In standard products, dark colour kitchens - especially in the blacks & greys that our clients have requested recently - look stunning... IF you are willing to keep up the cleaning .... & the wiping ... & a bit more cleaning  - They are VERY high maintenance colours - until now !

With the New Soft Matte & Mattera finishes from Prime, Finger Prints simply don't stick, the Soft touch feel is simply divine to rub your hands over .... and any marks from cooking etc ... Just wipe right off!

Dark black or greys teamed in a kitchen with a woodgrain or soft white colours ... this look is a classic & easily maintained colour pallet that will stand the test of time & life!

Kitchen Express can show you all the benefits of these latest products in our large showroom when we are designing a kitchen for you ... Our Free Measure & Quote service is simply the start of the benefits you will enjoy when dealing with a Trusted, Longstanding & Market leader in New Zealand Kitchens.

We look forward to helping you out with your next Kitchen or Laundry renovation project - weather you are after a DIY budget kitchen, a kitchen from our Value range ... or something a little more personalised from our Premier range ... we can help your dream kitchen become reality in 2018.
