The Matte finish option serves to significantly reduce sheen, providing a flatter and softer appearing finish than Satin. This finish is often associated with the type of finish put on high-end furniture. Due to its exceptionally low sheen, mars, dings and light scratches will tend to appear more as polished marks. Additionally, Matte’s very low sheen may make variations in the wood substrate’s graining more visible. Matte is applicable to both Stained and Painted finishes and cannot be combined with Lasting Touch Plus.
