What Kinds of Cabinets Can Be Repainted

Kitchen cabinets that are in desperate need of repainting.

The types of cabinets that best lend themselves to a fresh coat of paint are going to be constructed of wood, wood-laminate, or metal. If you have cabinets that are constructed of plastic laminate, they will resist repainting, though it is not impossible. Plastic laminate cabinets require special techniques and paints, that results may not be as satisfactory as they would be with wood or metal construction cabinets.

Cabinet Repainting Process

Repainting kitchen cabinets is a process that must be done carefully and precisely, otherwise you will end up with a less than satisfactory result. All cabinets must first be taken apart – doors off, drawers out, hardware removed. Then, the cabinets must be sanded all over with at 100-grit sandpaper. Once the sanding is completed, the cabinet surfaces will be vacuumed and gone over with a tack cloth to remove all dust a debris as to not mar the new paint finish. Once the cabinets have been sanded and cleaned, the actual painting process can begin with a coat of primer-sealer. This step ensures that the finishing coats of paint will adhere properly and not rub off with time and wear. The primer-sealer must dry completely before applying the finishing coats of paint. It may take between 2-3 coats of paint, and the paint must be allowed to dry for at least 4 hours and sanded before the next coat can be applied.
