chipped white melamine cabinet

Post by IrishRob » Sat Jul 06, 2019 7:08 pm

i just finished redoing my kitchen. i was admiring all the new cabinets and countertops when i noticed some chips on my pantry cabinet. nothing big or deep and probably barely even noticeable, but now i know it is there so my eyes go right to it. they are white melamine cabinets. is there anything i can do to fix these chips? i heard a dab of caulking or even white out can just make everything blend together. thanks for any help.

Yeah short of refacing with new melamine, that is probably the best fix.

White Out will work or better yet is a product called Seam fill https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=seam+fill&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
It goes on and dries hard, comes in many different colours and you can mix colors to get different shades.
I have also found that a simple white wax fill stick (crayon) will hide edge chips from cutting very well.
