For one thing, while it goes on smoothly, oil-based paint takes a long time to dry in between coats—up to 16 hours. Without good circulation (such as inside of a cabinet), waiting for the paint to dry can really become an issue. Keeping your cabinets emptied for days as you let the paint dry between coats can be a nuisance that many people are not willing to deal with. Latex paint, however, is ready for another coat in as little as two to four hours. This means you can easily paint in a day and put your kitchen back together pronto.
Avoid painting kitchen cabinets with an eggshell or flat finish paint. These paints are not as washable as semi-gloss or gloss finishes, and you run the risk of rubbing through your paint job the next time you need to scrub your cabinet doors.
You might not be ready for a full kitchen remodel, but you can still spruce up the look of your kitchen with a fresh coat of paint for your cabinets. The process is simpler and less costly than installing all new cabinets, and it is within the abilities of most homeowners. If you choose the right paint for kitchen cabinets, it can transform the look of your space while covering up dull, dingy surfaces.Open the door to new possibilities by painting your kitchen cabinets in a bold fresh color or opt for a classic look with a crisp shade of white.
