Oil Paint vs. Latex Paint.Wondering whether you should reach for old-school oil paint or widely-available latex paint for your kitchen cabinets? The short answer is that latex paint is best for cabinets. Oil paint makes a case for itself with its reputation for easy application and a long-lasting finish that can be scrubbed and cleaned regularly, but latex paint is the best choice for most cabinets since it offers lower levels of volatile organic compound sand is quicker to dry.
Additionally, semi-gloss or gloss paints are a better choice for a finish when painting in a room with humidity or moisture—like a kitchen. The extra sheen offered by this paint finish will help to ward off water spots and stains.
Just make sure that if you are painting wood cabinets, you properly prep the surface before using latex paint. While oil-based paint goes on smooth, even over wood surfaces, latex paint is more likely to show variances in the grain or texture. If you want a smooth, even look, you will need to do some prep work beforehand to make your painting project a success.

They also divide ideally between the kitchen equipment and the dining area.
