Painting Thermofoil Cabinet Doors – Although thermofoil cabinets are easy to maintain, they can be difficult to paint. The material is usually not meant to be painted but it can be done with the proper preparation.
People are often a bit confused as to what thermofoil actually is and how they’re different from laminate cabinets. Thermofoil is created by heat-fusing a thin layer of laminate vinyl to a base material like a particle board. It is intended to portray the look of being painted but without brush strokes or any paint used.
