I have a honey brown coloured veneer covered kitchen cupboards made of fibreboard.

I wish to change the colour to an off white.

What are my options?

I have heard about melamine paint, is this the best type of paint for this kitchen cupboards?

Not necessarily there's a product that Benjamin Moore carries it's called sticks primer apply that first and then you could put any type of 2nd to 3rd finish coat on top of that Benjamin Moore carries a lot of lions and they are very very good quality hope that helps you but put first the primer sticks

Hi Martin.

You can paint it. However, for a better result it is better to have it spray painted. You should make sure you sand the cabinets completely, and use strong primer that sticks completely to the surfaces.

We use Benjamin Moore Special paint and the final result is perfect.
