Available in an array of finishes, the most common are smooth, medium to a high gloss, and matte finishes. Furniture and wall finish often use textured laminates, which replicate the tactile feel of natural materials.
Laminate is a synthetic material that is fused to particleboard, also known as compressed wood. A thin film of laminate — usually printed with a decorative pattern or color — is bonded to the cabinet doors' exterior surface. Laminate kitchen cabinets usually have a glossy shine.
Laminates are applied as a priority for both modular and conventional (carpentered) kitchens. They are categorized as high-pressure laminates, which are applied on plywood, and low-pressure laminates that are used on MDF or particleboard. There are different types of colors and finishes for choices. The thicknesses ranging between 0.6 millimeters to 1.5 millimeters. As a professional in the kitchen cabinets area, Holike suggests that you can go for high-pressure laminates in your kitchen because they have the qualities like durability, low maintenance, high resistance to heat, and economic viability.
Firstly, you need to make sure your laminate kitchen cabinet is in good condition and then clean it completely. Then the rest step is a two-part process, with a primer coat of finish paint and a top coat or two of Satin Enamels paint.
Make your cabinet doors attached and roll on your first layer of Finish paint on the face of the doors and drawers. Then use a soft paintbrush to get into all the areas the roller couldn’t reach, like the insets in the doors. Now go back and paint the cabinet frames in the same way: roll the larger flat areas, and use the brush to get into any tight corners or edges. Remove the cabinet hinges and use a paintbrush to finish applying paint to the edges of the doors and drawers.
Finally, paint over everything the same way with the Satin Enamels paint. You may need two coats to get an even, satiny finish.
