What is the best paint for kitchen cabinets?

When it comes to painting your kitchen cupboards, you will want to choose a durable, long-lasting interior furniture paint. There are a few different paint finishes to choose from, including satin, matt, and gloss. The finish you choose depends on the kind of look you prefer. Some cupboard paint will require an undercoat and others won’t, so make sure you check the back of the tin before you begin renovating your kitchen cupboards.
