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.
The pivot hinge is made for overlay doors. One is mounted on the top and the other on the bottom with portions of each bent over and mounted to the frame and door resulting in a concealed hinge. Perhaps the most popular hinge is the spring mounted hinge. Fitted with a small spring inside this door hinge allows the door to close on its own, automatically.
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.
Ornamental hinges are another good choice for visible, or surface mounted cabinet door hinges. These come in a wide range of styles, including butterfly and Art Deco.
Hinges, thank goodness, are relatively simple items. With a few handyman"s tools, you could be replacing them before you know it. The existing hinge just has to be unscrewed and taken off to leave the way clear for the new hinge to be screwed on. Then take your door, window, lid or whatever and connect it back to where it came from.
Depending on your tastes, cabinet hinges can be as prominent or as subtle as you want them to be. Some people prefer smaller cabinet hinges that are attached on the inside of the cabinet leaving just a small peek of the hinge area to show. They may be made in a variety of different metals to give a little touch of contrast to your overall cabinetry appearance. If you are working on a rustic or country look, you should look for strap cabinet hinges, or other large cabinet hinges that go on the outside of the cabinet. These are available from simple black designs to beautifully ornate pieces that seem as if they may have come from a palace. This style of cabinet hinges can really dress up the doors you are putting them on, making what had been ordinary cabinets suddenly look like they"re expensive, custom-made jobs.
Besides type hinges also come in a wide variety of finishes. If you like a vintage look, go for antique copper, brass or pewter. Keep it simple with black nickel, flat black, or white. If you like a modern European look, go for polished chrome or satin nickel. Recreate your grandma;s fifties kitchen with oil rubbed bronze hinges or go for something different with red bronze. No matter what finish you choose it is important that it matches your motif. You can even match your hinges with your cabinet knobs and drawer pulls.
