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.
The instinct many people have when going to get replacement hinges is just to go to the store and see what gets their attention. This is alright if you are planning a complete overhaul of your cabinets, but if you"re not, you need to make sure you have the right hinges for the job so you don"t end up having to fill old holes, drill new holes and repaint or refinish the cabinets
Some say the hinge is the second most important invention, the wheel being the first. A hinge cabinet or otherwise is generally eight to ten times stronger than its assigned job. So imagine for a moment if hinges had not been invented. Our things would be or shelves for all to see or we use large rocks or hunks of wood to act as a door.
Pivot hinges, one of the most popular styles, are designed for overlay doors. One hinge is mounted on top the other on the bottom with portions of each screwed into the frame resulting in a concealed hinge.
No matter what type of door is being installed, a hinge of some type is necessary. Hinge designs include butt hinges, spring hinges, geared continuous hinges and a myriad of utility hinge designs. Which one you purchase depends on the location and function of the door. A quality hinge provides long-lasting functionality which saves in repair costs and time.
No matter what type of cabinet door hinge and finish you choose you should be happy with the results. A cabinet door hinge may be small and it may be overlooked, but without them we wouldn;t have cabinets, we would simply have shelves. And sometimes things are better left hidden behind closed doors.
Even small accessory items in your home can wear a new face with decorative hinges. Take a jewelry box or armoire for example, that may have been passed down from generation to generation, and now reposes on your bureau. Those small pieces of hardware may be becoming stiff and rusty, making the lid more difficult to open. Simply by replacing the old, tired hinges with new decorative hinges will ensure the piece will be in the best condition possible to hand down to future generations, with your own personal added touch.
