    I recommend a good quality latex kitchen and bath paint for cabinets. Use a semi-gloss or satin sheen so they will be easier to wipe clean. This type of paint is designed for kitchens and baths which typically get more abuse.

    I recommend going to your local home store, either Lowes or Home Depot, where they have experts on site to show you the different types of paint that go well on cabinets. This allows you the opportunity to actually view the different finishes to see what appeals to you .

    Use acrylic latex paint. Remove the doors and hardware. Mark the doors and cabinets with tape where they go. Lightly sand the doors and cabinets to remove any gloss and roughen the surface for paint. Prime with a stain blocking primer like Zinsser 123. Then paint with your color. Seal with at least three coats with a water based polyurethane. Use a small foam roller and foam brush for a smooth finish.

    An oil based paint is best for the kitchen area.
