Question Repaint stripped oak cabinets - Oil based or melamine

Hello,

I have completely stripped our kitchen cabinets and am now ready to prime/paint them. I am getting mixed advice....some people are telling me that oil is the best way to go, others suggest melamine. I am using Zinssers Cover Stain for the primer.

Which would be my best choice for the paint?

Oil-based enamels will provide slightly better duration, but also yellow more if not exposed to sunlight (as in indoors)

Honestly though, the Waterborne Enamels (not latex wall paint-there's a difference) today are almost as good as the oil enamels, and more forgiving to use and easier clean-up

Thanks for your reply. So I should omit melamine paint entirely? As far as the waterboure paints do you have any specific recommendations?

Thanks again.

I can highly recomend SWP's proclassic waterborne line. B. Moore's is supposed to be good also [I've not used it]

Ben Moore's Impervo (waterborne enamel) is also very good and I can recommend it

Unfortunately I have just found out that Waterbourne Satin Inpervo is not available in Canada. Do you have any other possible recommendations.

As marksr posted, if you have Sherwin Williams up there, see if you can get ProClassic Waterbourne.
