For me, 3/4 in minimum for cabinet I build (I know not what you want to hear) Grade, AB closed grain plywood for painting. I use a lot of 3/4 prefinished Maple depending on the project.

Zard – unless you are on a boat where space is at a premium,
there is no reason to use less than the required sizes for a cabinet.
especially in a high humidity atmosphere like a bathroom.

listen carefully to the above comments.

3/4

MDO (Medium Density Overlay) paints up well too, rated for exterior use.
