There a lot of different hinges on the market today. They vary in size, thickness and use. Some are even marked left or right handed depending on what side of the door you are going to use them on. This doesn;t really matter though because you can simply flip them over and they become left or right handed as needed. You also really can"t go to small because of the strength of hinges. They are generally eight to ten times stronger than the job they are doing so as long as they are proportional to the door you needn;t worry.
Every morning you probably open and close at least five doors before you leave t o go to work. You close the bathroom door to jump in the shower. You open the medicine cabinet to get your toothbrush and toothpaste. You reach for your cereal to grab a quick bite to eat and the front door swings shut behind you before you leave. All of these doors and more would not work without a door hinge or two. And what would the world be like without this oh so important invention? Well picture going into and out of your house through a hole in the roof because you are no strong enough o move a large rock or slab of wood everyday in front of the entrance.
Eventually the Romans adapted the hinge from the large sizes used for city gates to a smaller size to use in the home. So, now we have the cabinet door hinge. Available in a vast array of styles and finishes the cabinet door hinge is an important part of any décor. Don;t get frustrated bouncing from store to store like a pinball to find the hinges you need. Instead shop online and you;ll find the best selection as well as the best prices.
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.
If you go with hidden hinges, the chances are good you are looking to simply replace the cabinet hinges you already have. In this case you want to make sure that you buy ones that are similar to the ones you have already been using because how they are fitted to the wood is specific to a particular type of cabinet hinges.
Adding personality and an ornamental value to your cabinet doors, decorative hinges are available in different finishes that will complement your cabinetry. Black, gold, silver, and pewter finishes can serve to accent the color of your cabinet woods, as well as drawer pulls and cabinet handles or knobs. A variety of sizes are also available.
They type of hinge you choose depends on the type of door you have as well as your tastes. There are three types of door, lipped, overlay and flush. Lipped doors have a lip around them, an overlay door rests on the door frame and a flush door rests within the frame. If you have an overlay door a popular hinge that works well is the pivot hinge. A decorative butterfly hinge works well on flush doors while some hinges work on all three types. A well-liked hinge that works on all doors is the spring loaded hinge. This hinge has a spring in it that makes the door close all by itself. Once you find the right hinge your project will be complete.
