If you have laminate kitchen cabinets and it has been years since your got them painted or furnished, now would be a great time to do just that. There are certain steps and techniques that you need to follow if you want to make sure that you make the most out of your cabinets.

That means that once the job is done, you will have nothing to worry about for years to come.
One of the more important essentials to use is a bonding primer. As the name suggests it will keep your paint intact and prevent it from peeling or chipping. You can then couple that with any paint of your choice. In order to roughen up the surface, it is advised to make use of a sandpaper. A 100-grit one would be the best choice. You simply have to go over the surface for 5 minutes at max.

After cleaning, leave it out to dry fully for the same purpose.
