While sanding is typically recommended for optimal paint adhesion, there are alternative methods for painting cabinets without sanding. Using a deglosser or liquid sandpaper can effectively prep the surface by removing gloss and creating a rough texture for the paint to adhere to. However, for best results and long-term durability, sanding is still preferred to ensure proper bonding between the paint and the cabinet surface.
