Question ceiling paint over gloss/semi gloss

Hi all
I'm new to the site and I have a question. I bought a house recently and someone painted the kitchen ceiling with either gloss or semi-gloss (it shines!).
I was wondering if I should just paint it with ceiling paint and worry if it will peel or will I be alright. What would you recommend doing?

If its latex up there now, it should be fine. If you are able to sand it effectively, (little or no sand texture), then all the better.

It's best to TSP kitchen and bath walls and ceiling prior to painting as they tend to get more contaminents like grease and smoke, or shower scum, in those rooms (respectively). The tsp will dull the glossy finish if it is strong enough. Otherwise as noted shiny surfaces should be lightly scuffed. You might reconsider as semigloss paint is able to be cleaned and flat isn't. ...jeff

Tri Sodium Phosphate

An excellent cleaner to prep walls for painting
