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.
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.
White cabinets are, in fact, the ageless secret of the kitchen design industry. Their biggest advantage is their modern, yet classy look; and the fact that they can seamlessly hide piles of cutlery and dishes. That is exactly why they never go out of style!
Before selecting a paint, measuring the kitchen walls is a nice idea for kitchen paint. Correct measures will save you unnecessary difficulties later. The kitchen situation needs to be discussed in detail with the shop advisor, as this will help him to make paint decisions available. It is nice to take samples of painting colors, as this will give you an idea of your look.
