I’m using normal maps here, Is it the faulty map or something else that’s causing this strange effect?

How would I turn this into something like this: enter image description here Sort of a matte effect

We don't know how you set up your scene, your lights, materials, normal maps or render settings. We don't even know what render engine you are using... $\endgroup$ – user1853 May 26 '19 at 23:09

Some of the point:

  • You can change the strength of normal by using normal map node
  • The second wood of your picture seems to have a clearcoat on it, there is an attribute to do that effect too
  • The roughness change how light reflective

Try it your self, and most of the time you will get specular or roughness or smoothness(?) image map as well. You can use those images as input
