Every morning you probably open and close at least five doors before you leave t o go to work. You close the bathroom door to jump in the shower. You open the medicine cabinet to get your toothbrush and toothpaste. You reach for your cereal to grab a quick bite to eat and the front door swings shut behind you before you leave. All of these doors and more would not work without a door hinge or two. And what would the world be like without this oh so important invention? Well picture going into and out of your house through a hole in the roof because you are no strong enough o move a large rock or slab of wood everyday in front of the entrance.
Door hinges well may be the most under appreciated items in your home. Think about it, how often do you think about your door hinges? You probably only really notice them when they begin squeaking or creaking. You notice them even more when they start to frustrate you because no matter how much WD40 you have, it isn;t going to stop your hinges from failing. Unfortunately door hinges getting old and squeaking and creaking is a part of life. Its just time passing.
When it"s time to do a remodeling job on the cabinet doors or cabinets, themselves, it is always a good time to think about replacing the cabinet hinges on them. You could stick with the factory standard pieces that come with many cabinets, but you could also have a little more fun with your décor, and choose cabinet hinges that suit the style of home you are trying to create. Often when you are getting new cabinets, you can ask that there be no holes placed in them, until you figure out what hinges you want to attach. That way, there won;t be any patch up work if the cabinet hinges you choose don;t fit the current cabinet holes.
If you have folding doors you might use a Soss hinge. Named for its inventor this door hinge is recessed into the door edges so when the door is folded it is completely concealed. It must be installed exactly or it will not work.
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.
However, if you grabbed the handle with your right hand and still managed to open the door, window or lid, then you are face to face with a right-handed hinge. In this case, put a line through left-handed hinge. Write right-handed hinge"e.
When it comes to cabinet door hinges the right ones depend on the type of door you have. Basically there are three types of doors lipped, overlay and flush. The lipped door is one in which a lip has been cut completely around the door. The overlay door is cut larger than the opening so that its edges rest on the door frame. Flush doors sit inside the frame with their faces flush within it. Each type of door dictates different types of hinges.
