Anyone Have a Gloss Kitchen....and 'Small People'?

Thinking of a white or cream gloss finish kitchen.

Don't want to think of spending hours wiping off small people's sticky fingerprints!

Does anyone have experience of this type of door finish? Are they still sane?!!

our next door neighbours do, their dc's are the same age as ours (7 & 4), cream gloss. it looks lovely, and so far so good with the finish, have heard no complaints about sticky finger prints.

your kitchen is likely to stay in your home for another 15 - 20 years.
your children are not.
invest in the kitchen, tell the kids where to go. wink

I have gloss white and small people - one with ASD.

Units are flat and I just give them a wipe with a micro fibre cloth - it's only a couple of minute job and easier to keep clean that the last couple of kitchens I have had (different houses - the white gloss is the first that is really mine!)

We had a cream gloss kitchen in our old house and a toddler. Fingerprints were never a problem, and very very easily wiped off if they did appear. Now have a white modern kitchen (not quite gloss, more gentle sheen) and don't expect any problems with this one either.

I have a white gloss kitchen, 3 small people and I am pretty messy too!

Yes, it does get obviously mucky quite easy BUT is so easy to get clean when you do it and looks good as new! Much better than something with grooves that is a nightmare to clean!
