bathroom cabinets

I posted a question about a particular paint issue involving a cabinet here...

perma-white sheen

I haven't gotten to that yet, but since I am going to paint all the cabinets in both bathrooms I have some other questions.

I went to my usual paint store and they don't carry Perma-White. They say the Aura Bath and Spa is working great for bathrooms. Or, they suggested to go with an oil, which Chrisn suggested in the previous mentioned thread.

How is the Aura Bath paint working for you guys? I am thinking I will use Aura or BM Impervo, oil, satin.

I am open to suggestions, thanks for your comments.

I posted about the oil because it tends to have a harder, longer lasting coating. The draw back being if white it will yellow over time. The Aura paint will work just fine

If I remember right- BM developed bath and spa in the Matte ( and maybe eggshell) finishes because the regular Aura was having moisture probs in the low sheens.
It is not a problem with the Satin or SG , ( satin is my fav for trim and cabs). They are a more "closed" finish and the moisture cant get in.
Oil imp is the long time standard- but has all the stuff that goes with oil- long dry, more odor, ambers over time, more brittle with age.

For the cabs- I'd just go with reg Aura Satin.
