And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
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.
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.
As far as thinking about a house or home is concerned, one of the spaces tends to be the kitchen. Clearly, the kitchen is intended and is mainly used to store food and drinks and cooking processes. But it can also be used to socialize. Nobody likes a messy or tacky kitchen so perhaps a good way to splash some money is to focus your attention on a new kitchen or a design, which you've always wanted and can be proud to call your own. In this paper, luxury kitchens and the advantages they can bring will be discussed.
