However, the two biggest reasons to use latex paint for kitchen cabinets have to do with and yellowing. Water-based latex paints are typically available in low or no formulas. Oil paints release at much higher levels. Using a paint that is known to emit to enclose your food, spices, and eating utensils might give you second thoughts, since these emissions have been linked to eye, nose, and throat irritation, dizziness, fatigue, and more serious conditions. And since surfaces covered in oil paint can take a yellow hue over time, your kitchen cabinets might start to look off-color and dingy.
Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.
When we think of grey, a standard color may come to mind. However, your base grey color choice is worth thinking about. This is because there is no single grey color in which one size fits all.Instead, grey is influenced by a range of different undertones, from red to green to blue. Warm greys such as taupe or putty will make your kitchen appear warm and cozy, whereas a grey with a blue undertone will have an industrial feel.
