They type of hinge you choose depends on the type of door you have as well as your tastes. There are three types of door, lipped, overlay and flush. Lipped doors have a lip around them, an overlay door rests on the door frame and a flush door rests within the frame. If you have an overlay door a popular hinge that works well is the pivot hinge. A decorative butterfly hinge works well on flush doors while some hinges work on all three types. A well-liked hinge that works on all doors is the spring loaded hinge. This hinge has a spring in it that makes the door close all by itself. Once you find the right hinge your project will be complete.
Ancient pivot hinges wore out and were subsequently reinforced with metal. Eventually they were made only of metal. As advances in metallurgy made metal stronger, they could carry heavier loads. They were also advancing by being downsized and used in homes; on doors, trunks, and boxes.
So you"ve decided to give your kitchen a facelift. You"ve decided on a paint color, picked out a new counter top and are re-facing your cabinets. Heck you might even throw in a new fridge or range.
Daily we encounter and use items that become so normal, so automatic that we don"t even realize they exist. Hinges make our lives so much easier on so many levels, and yet are almost invisible in their efficiency.
Butterfly hinges are really decorative butt hinges that when fully opened have the look of a butterfly. They are used only on flush doors and add a decorative touch. If you want your cabinets to close by themselves which is always popular you need a spring loaded cabinet hinge. So called because they have a tiny spring inside that when released closes the door by itself. As versatile as they are popular they can be used on all three types of doors.
Adjustable spring hinges are also available in steel, brass and bronze. This type of hinge is less expensive than an automatic door closer for interior doors of hospitals, schools, hotels and other commercial buildings.
When selecting new hinges, you want to keep a few things in mind. First, what;s the style of your kitchen? Is it modern, traditional, country or retro? What kind do you have now and what hinges would not only look good, but also properly support the door so it doesn;t sag or even fail over the time. Too weak of hinges and you"ll always be straightening the door. This can become maddening very quickly.
