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.
If you know you would like to have grey cabinets in your kitchen, the first step is to look at your choice of grey. Would you like to have light gray kitchen cabinets, or are you interested in using a darker color?
A semi-gloss or gloss finish is the best choice when painting kitchen cabinets. A paint with some sheen will help reflect light and be more durable in the long run, which is important in the kitchen environment. Many formulas of both semi-gloss and glossy paint are described as washable and have increased resiliency when being washed or scrubbed clean. This is due to the fact that more resin and binders are used in formulating semi-gloss and glossy paint, giving the paint more durability.
What you should know about green cabinet materials, is that whilst they come at a higher price, some of them actually offer more durability than regular materials.
