Melamine starts with a compressed wood particle core. It is then covered with a resin and paper finish that can be manufactured to embody various styles and colours. Melamine is often used for cabinetry in kitchens, bathrooms and other areas throughout the home.
People also ask, can you paint melamine kitchen cabinets?
Danny Lipford: Some cabinets have a plastic melamine surface coating, rather than being painted or stained. Depending on the thickness of the melamine it may take more than one coat of primer to smooth out the surface. Since melamine has a smooth finish, using a spray for the primer and paint is a good option.

If you want professional-style results, it's imperative to prime the boxes, door fronts and drawers before you begin painting.
