Best finish for kitchen cabinets
I'm currently in the final phase of building my own home.
My wife and I want to have our kitchen cabinets painted. The problem is that we are not getting the same advice from different painters as far as what finish would be best.
First, the guy at Sherwin-Williams said he would use their best latex. Didn't seem right to me as it's so soft and can peel. But I'm usually wrong.
Second, the cabinet maker said most people have been using colored lacquer. About half the painters I spoke with said they like it for kitchen cabinets, however I'm in a fairly rural town and having a bit of a time finding a painter that says they are proficient with it.
Third, the other half say to use oil based.
We will be in the house for about 6-7 years only, but I want them to hold up for the next buyer too.
Can you guys help me out here. Much appreciated!
Thanks so much!
