And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint.

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 is also a timeless choice which can add airiness and light to kitchens with small windows. Besides, it leaves a lot of space for impressive colors and personal elements, which would break the monotony and make the place look cooler.
