What You'll Need

White laminate cabinets are a classic look, but they may become yellowed or worn over time. Follow these steps to freshen the look of your white laminate cabinets to make them stand out in your kitchen.

Step 1 - Cleaning

Your white laminate cabinets will show the grease and dirt very easily. You need to clean them regularly to keep them looking their best. Use good liquid soap with warm water and a sponge. The soap will cut through grease and soak up the dirt. Make sure you clean the entire cabinet and then rinse with cold water before letting the cabinets dry.

Step 2 - Paint

You can alter the entire look of your white laminate cabinets with a good paint job. You’ll need to sand the surface lightly first, then apply primer. Allow that to dry before painting. Use a think coat on the white laminate cabinets. Once it’s dried, apply a second coat and then finish with a sealer to protect the finish. It will also make cleaning much easier in the future!

Step 3 - Hardware

Simply buying new hardware can spruce up your white laminate cabinets. Something metallic will stand out well against the finish. Take your time selecting the kind of hardware that will work with your cabinets and the rest of the kitchen.
