My kitchen cabinets are covered with thick glossy sheets which are now peeling off and cracking (appears to be MDF underneath).
I'm not sure what the cabinets have been wrapped or coated in. Can anyone help?
Once I know what I'm dealing with I can then investigate how to remove it and whether the cabinets can be re-coated or need replacing entirely (hopefully not as they are in good condition).
Any advice gratefully welcomed!
I would try to contact the company/builder who supplied the cabinets to see what's possible
I would say not vinyl wrap as it’s too thick. And not two pack as that’s more painted on. So that really leaves a laminate of some sort.
Sorry on second look, the second photo does look like vinyl wrap.
Help me fix my bathroom please
Help me pick a light fixture for my living room! Please!
Need help to change my dark kitchen cabinets....
Help me choose the perfect grey for my kitchen cabinets
Thanks Siriuskey. Unfortunately I bought the house after the cabinets were supplied so don't who did the work.
Bumping above the spam.
Update: I rang around a few co's that remove vinyl and they seem to think its vinyl too. Easy enough to remove, but I need to choose to replace it with more vinyl or twopak finish. I can see there are some good discussion threads here on it that topic too! I'm renting out the house for 3 years before probably selling, so I think I'll go for the cheaper option. Thanks very much for your help!
Twopak would be good as it would allow any new owners to change the colour.
Bigreader what is "Bumping above spam", I noticed you have used this several times, is it the cleaning company who keeps posting to advertise their company
Bumping means moving a post up in a thread so more people can see it. The Spam is that annoying poster that keeps posting on and on. Bumping means that people who only look at the top few posts or have their thread sorted as newest first see the genuine posts above the spam posts.
I understand The terms spam and Bumping, I guess you are targeting the Houzzers who have the mentioned settings, I flag what I consider Spam, thankfully not many do it, thanks Bigreader
If you’re at all handy you could spray them yourself after peeling off the vinyl. There is DIY spraying info on YouTube and Pinterest. One of the Bunnings cupboard door ranges comes unpainted so they have instructions for painting as well.
'Fraid I am not at all handy! I've now been told by vinyl service providers that they can't re-wrap - my only choice is 2 pack.
A local painter might help if he has the time, spraying will get the best surface finish, it you check out the American programs on tv or Youtube, they all spray the kitchens insitu
Awesome advice thank you Siriuskey. I've been talking to some companies that want me to remove the doors, send them to their depot and then re-hang. Eeek!
Yes that works but you would still need to have someone to spray the cabinets, perhaps if you had the doors sprayed someone might offer to come to the house to do the cabinets.
