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.
Squeaks happen. They"re natural, but that doesn"t mean you have to live with them. When you first hear the squeaky door hinge, you need to decide what is causing it. Maybe it really does need some grease. Squirt a little WD40 in there and see if that solves the problem. If not, maybe one of the screws has come a little loose. Grab a screw driver and tighten them up to see if that makes a difference. Only tighten them as far as they need to go, don"t keep twisting thinking you"ll make it stop squeaking if you tighten the screw enough, that"s only going to hurt your cabinet surface. If these solutions don"t work, it"s time to go on a hunt for replacement hinges.
For something a little more European, consider adding Antique English Hinges. These H shaped steel cabinet door hinges have a very ornate finish to them that will add old world charm to your kitchen, bathroom or pantry area.
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.
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.
If you enjoy refinishing old or antique furniture pieces, you might want to consider adding the extra feature of decorative hinges. Purchasing these pieces with a distressed finish can keep the antique quality of the furniture piece while adding the beauty of hinge design not available years ago.
Typically the type of cabinet door hinge you need is dictated by the type of cabinet door you have. There are three types of cabinet door; lipped, flush and overlay. A lipped door has a lip cut all the way around it. A flush door rests within the door frame and an overlay door rests on the door frame.
