Is it advisable to use latex or oil paints for painting the cabinets?Latex paints are quick drying and environmentally friendly, with a low level of VOC (volatile organic compounds) compared to oil paints. Latex paints are flexible, hence more durable than oil paints.Another plus is that latex paints do not develop a yellowish tinge as they age.
