How Matte Product Surface Enhances Perceived Durability

Prior literature has shown that different perceptual qualities can be inferred from object surface features. Extending prior work, we propose reflected light on surface (glossy vs. matte) as an inferential cue that can shape product quality. Across three studies, we show that matte (vs. glossy) product surface enhances perceived durability.
