The most basic hinge, the pivot hinge, was in use in by 1600 BCE (Before Common Era), based on archeological evidence from the ancient city of Hattusa. The pivot hinge is simply a post that rests in a socket or ring of stone, wood, or metal. This basic hinge design allows a door to swing fully open in both directions, or be blocked on one side to stop. Because of this feature, pivot hinges have been passed down through history and are still around everywhere, though in slightly fancier form. Saloon-style doors and bathroom stall doors are often mounted by pivot hinges.
Hinges come in a seemingly endless variety of styles, sizes and shapes. But if you know the basics you will able to find the right ones for your project in a flash. Don"t worry about whether the hinge is labeled left or right handed. All this means is what side of the door you are hanging the hinges on, but all you need to do is flip them over and you can use them on the other side. You may also be unsure of what size of hinge you need. As long as it is proportional to the size of the door you neednt worry. Hinges are extremely strong. In fact they are generally eight to ten times stronger than the job they are called on to do.
Similar to the butterfly hinge but recessed into the doorjamb and frame is the standard butt hinge. Also constructed of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin or rod, this cabinet door hinge can be used on any of the three door types. Another popular hinge that fits all three doors is a spring-loaded or self-closing hinge. Ideal for the kitchen where cabinets are open and closed often these hinges have a small spring inside that closes the door automatically after it has been opened.
