Translated from Swedish to English 'toppmodern' literally means 'State-of-the-art' and it is the backbone in which Swedish Door strives to offer all of our clients the highest quality in cabinet door technology available to the market.

Make no mistake- this isn't your typical laminate or thermofoil matte finish that is already well known. This is a brand new special process unique to Swedish Door to give you the best modern day, close to zero sheen finish possible with unmatched painted durability.


What is paint sheen?

The term 'sheen' is an industry standard word for 'gloss'. A typical kitchen will display a sheen (or gloss) of about 25-30 degrees.

While a standard lacquered paint isn't immediately noticeable on lighter colours or various shades of white- on dark colours, greys and shades of black it becomes far more noticeable when exposed to different lighting and can take away from the modern flat look.


What does the term 'flat' or 'matte' paint mean?

The term 'flat' and 'matte' are the exact same. This is and lacquered paint product that has a sheen (or gloss) of 3 degrees or less resulting in a painted finish that doesn't reflect light. 


What is the difference between regular laquered paint vs Painted Matte finishes

Through pictures alone the differences may be difficult to spot but there are  a plethora of benefits to having a matte finish throughout your brand new kitchen. We've covered everything you need to know about matte kitchen cabinets here.


Where can I see these beautiful new finishes for myself?
