Oil-based paints are known for their resilient finish, and so they might be your first thought as the best paint for kitchen cabinets. If you open the cabinet with sticky or greasy hands, you can scrub away any residue without worrying about wearing away the paint or dulling the surface. However, oil paints have some flaws that become especially hard to ignore when painting cabinets.
Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look. However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as slab cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
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.
Elegant or casual can be the kitchen. Even with bright colors, this space could be hot and inviting. If you're looking for retro style, consider putting black and white tiles on the ground and putting red clothes and equipment on the countertops. The most important thing to keep in mind is that there are no strong, vacant areas in the kitchen. This space has a dynamic, beautiful feeling that is only emphasized by the beauty of white.
