Default Best product for kitchen cabinets paint.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently in the final phase of a new home. Wanted to get your expert opinion on painting kitchen cabinets, as this will be my first time to have a non-stained finish done on site.

Getting conflicting advice from my painters as well as SW manager.

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 peels easily once scuffed. But I'm usually wrong.

Second, my cabinet guy 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.

Can you guys help me out here. Much appreciated!

Thanks so much!
