What's the most durable paint for kitchen cabinets?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

The most durable type of paint for kitchen cabinets is anything that’s smooth and easy to clean. It’s often recommended that you choose semi-gloss, gloss or satin finishes as opposed to matte finishes. Matte finishes have a non-uniform surface, which not only attracts dust and grease, but also makes it more vulnerable to damage during wipe downs. 

Don’t hesitate to ask a top-rated cabinet painter for their advice as you’re planning your project.
