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.
Consider your daily activity. You get out of bed in the morning and head for the bathroom door, which is suspended on hinges. You open the door of the medicine cabinet (hinged) and take out your pillbox (hinged). Reaching for the vanity cabinet, you open the hinged door to take a towel for your shower, the door of which is most likely hinged. Already, in just those few moments, you have relied on the invisible hinges several times to accomplish your morning tasks.
Door hinges have a thankless job. For most of their mundane lives, they simply swing back and forth, holding the door securely in its frame. Occasionally, they strain as children swing back and forth on the door handles. Other times, they shudder to a sudden stop as a door is thoughtlessly slammed.
When your door hinges have gone past their prime, you can"t always find matching hinges to replace the ones that had treated you so well, for so long. So, your only option is to replace all the hinges on a door and if there are more doors in the room, you;ll probably have to replace those as well, or else that one hinge will be a tacky standout.
Some people don;t like to see their hinge at all. In this case they should invest in Soss or Blum hinges. They are recessed into to the door and frame so they are completely concealed when the door closes. There are also gate hinges for gates and piano hinges which are continuous hinges used on pianos and other things that you want to open completely.
Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the job they are assigned. So if your front door was off its hinges you have to have the strength to move it yourself. That is why before the hinge was in use many people entered their homes by climbing up a ladder and going through a hole in the roof.
In existence for thousands of years, hinges have come a long way to finally reach their status of today. Early versions involved large boulders and pivots, later evolving into wooden planks and animal hide. Regardless of how humble their beginnings may have been, getting through life without them today would definitely be much more difficult.
