When it comes to redecorating the inside of of a cupboard / wardrobe is it best to use emulsion or paint in the walls ?

The walls are currently emulsioned. I was wondering if paint would scuff / mark less by comparison and be easier to clean / wipe down if it was to become marked ?

Emulsion is paint, but I presume you mean a gloss or similar? The best thing to use is a wipeable/scrubbable paint, such as an acrylic eggshell emulsion. Most of these also have the bonus of resisting mould, which can be a problem in enclosed spaces.
