By the beginning of the Common Era, Romans were the most proficient with hinges and had downsized the hinge from a massive piece of hardware to on that would work inside the home on cabinet doors and boxes. The Egyptians, Assyrians, and Babylonians were also using hinges, but they were not as sophisticated as the Roman hinges, nor as sized down, and they were most always used for large doorways and other entryways such as city gates. No one knows when pivot hinges evolved to the strap hinges of the eleventh and twelfth centuries, but that evolution brought hinges one giant step closer to the hinges of today.
Once you"ve decided on the big items like stainless steel appliances and granite countertops it is important not to forget the little things that make your kitchen complete. Cabinet hardware can make or break the look you just spent so much money to achieve.
There are many different types of hinge available today. Rather than dragging yourself to every hardware store in the tri-state area, why not shop online? You can see the vast array of hinges available and find the ones you really want instead of settling for what you can find locally. From butt hinges to t-strap hinges, decorative and concealed hinges the only way to see them all is to shop online. You can browse the world of hinges with the click of a button from the comfort of your home.
Similar to the butt hinge but used only on flush doors; doors that rest within the frame, are butterfly hinges. These cabinet door hinges are also constructed with two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin. The difference is these hinges are mounted on the outside of the door and frame giving your cabinet a decorative touch. They are available in several styles to suit your taste ranging from colonial to art deco and more.
But when door hinges become a bit unhinged from years of use, they can not only cause doors to squeak, stick or rub, but allow heat to escape and cold to enter. Maintaining your door hinges is a simple process, something you can do once or twice a year. And it will keep your hinges working properly for years to come.
So look around as you go about your daily tasks for those seemingly unimportant hinges that make your everyday steps so much easier. And while you"re at it, take a look at where you can update and add extra decorative touches with new decorative hinges.
Most of today"s hinges developed from refinements of the basics of these simple designs. A common door hinge has open rings (sockets) on both the door and the frame and a pin (post) that runs through the rings. If that sounds familiar, it;s because it still uses the basic physics of the original pivot hinge developed over 3500 years ago.
