Is paint as durable as clear finish on cabinet interiors?

12 years ago

I'm planning to paint the interiors of my glass fronted cabinets to match the outsides (off white). Is there a convention that suggests how you finish the interiors of the other cabinets? I think I've seen kitchens with both clear-finished and painted interiors in them.

It seems to me that it would be nice to be consistent. Is there a reason to prefer one finish over the other? Are painted finishes less durable? I intend to use a non-toxic, or at least a low VOC, finish in either case.
