Painting Melamine Cabinets

The best way to paint melamine cabinets is by lightly sanding them first, cleaning really well after and then using a good bonding primer.

Once they have a primer that you are confident it has bonded, you can then top coat them with your choice of paint. We prefer Benjamin Moore Aura as the top coat but there are others that should work as well.

Painting Laminated Cabinets

Many homes have kitchen cabinets typically made of MDF which are laminated or wrapped with one of four materials:

  • paper
  • wood
  • melamine
  • thermofoil

Laminated cabinets can all be painted and will look amazing! We have painted all types of laminated cabinets and the transformation always gets a "WOW!"
