High-Gloss cabinets - lacquer or...?
I'm in the process of a major kitchen remodel and am very confused w/r to high-gloss cabinetry, or rather the best method of achieving this.
My designer has said there are different types of high-gloss 'techniques' such as laminate, or simply spraying the cabinets with several layers of paint then applying a high-gloss finish. He recommends a lacquer method wherein the paint is applied simultaneously with a lacquer with a spray gun (please forgive me if I'm using incorrect terminology) and then cured. He said this gives the best and most resistant finish.
I'm a bit of a nerd, and confess I have to understand the process a bit better than simply hearing "spraying on a paint and a lacquer and that's the best way, trust me". I want to make certain my cabinetmaker is going to be using the very best method to achieve a high-gloss finish.
Is this technique the same thing as a nitrocellulose lacquer? If not, can somebody give me a specific name? Thanks very much in advance!
The look I'm going for is similar to this:
