If there are any spills on the matte finish tiles, they are not going to be very easy to wash. This is because matte tiles aren't as smooth as gloss tiles and the stain may get stuck in the grooves and won't come off easily.

Non-glossy tiles are not reflective and hence aren't the best option for the room having less square footage and restricted natural light. Matte tiles will make such spaces look smaller and compact.
