But if you insist, Rodda makes a good leveling paint too made by Cloverdale. It comes in satin as well. I paid $42 a gallon which is a bargain for this kind of paint. Actually Ace cabinet paint is much cheaper because you can buy it in quart or gallon size but it is a semigloss and not a satin. They do not make satin. But that was my 2nd runner up for paint.

Decora Painting
Achieving a durable cabinet finish requires extensive prep work and attention to detail. Because your painting oak cabinets you'll also have to decide if you want to let the grain show or if you want to fill the grain.

Here's an example of the typical steps I take for painting cabinets:
1) Clean the cabinets with Krud Cutter
2) Scuff sand all the surfaces that are being painted with 150 or 180 grit sand paper
3) Vacuum the cabinets and clean with Krud Cutter Deglosser
4) Apply a primer such as Insl-L Stix or Sherwin Williams Premium Wall and Wood
5) Sand the primer with 220 grit
6) Vacuum the cabinets and clean with Krud Cutter Deglosser
7) Apply two coats of paint

Unless you have a lot of painting experience, I'd recommend Sherwin Williams ProClassic over Benjamin Moore Advance. Advance has a tendency to run or sag, whereas ProClassic is much more forgiving to apply.

What is the brand of Antique White paint on the cabinets? What is the brand and color of wall paint?

The Antique White is what the cabinet manufacturer uses. It is not a paint color you can buy yourself. The cabinet line was Nickels. I do not have the wall pant color on file but Valspar's Tea Light is a similar color.

that looks like wood top for sure, maybe cherry or mahogany. There's a product called Waterlox that's used for protecting wood tops that's pretty terrific.

The wood top is Sapele, which is similar to Mahogany.

Yes, my cabinet maker says over 90% of the kitchens he builds are white, mostly 'Cloud White' by Benjamin Moore! However, personally, I prefer a hint of colour which ties in colours in the rest of the house. I recently designed a kitchen with cabinets painted in a medium grey/green and it's gorgeous. The floor is black tile with silver accent strips between the tiles, and the counter is white engineered stone with black/grey/purple/mustard "sprinkles" (from Italy). The doors above the fridge are framed in brushed stainless steel with texture glass inserts.
If you love white kitchens and want to live and work in one for years to come, then choose white. But if you think you'd be bored after a while, try choosing a colour!
By the way, as a colour consultant myself, I find white cabinets limiting because I feel I have to stick with that same tone for the woodwork elsewhere in the house, when I'd really prefer to choose a deeper white that tones with the new wall colours. That's also why I wouldn't buy white appliances--too WHITE!

Your kitchen sounds beautiful ctaylor. I've seen grey/green and black together in a kitchen. I know the silver accents are beautiful. I love silver. I'd love to see your kitchen. It's interesting how we are all so different when it comes to design. I've never considered white kitchen cabinets boring because you can change wall paint, fabrics and accents and completely change the way it looks. I agree with your take on white appliances.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to See How Wood Warms Modern White Kitchens
A wooden countertop on the island is a popular way to add some natural grain to the mix. Personally, I don't love wood next to water sources (stains, mildew and warping), but I do love a big slab of shining wood in the middle of a kitchen.
