They;re small. They;re used every day. And when they don;t match with a room;s décor they can really stick out. No they aren;t cabinet knobs. They;re hinges. First used in 1600 B.C. they have increased the strength of man nearly tenfold and are perhaps one of the most important inventions for everyday use.
Butterfly hinges are really decorative butt hinges that when fully opened have the look of a butterfly. They are used only on flush doors and add a decorative touch. If you want your cabinets to close by themselves which is always popular you need a spring loaded cabinet hinge. So called because they have a tiny spring inside that when released closes the door by itself. As versatile as they are popular they can be used on all three types of doors.
So how, on a practical level, do you find out if you need to buy left-handed or right-handed hinges? Listen up. Go to the door, window or lid and grab the handle. Open the door (or window, or lid). If you grabbed the handle with your left hand and the door opened, either towards you or away from you, then you are dealing with a left-handed hinge. Note this down carefully; left-handed hinge.
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.
The squeaky wheel may get the grease, but a squeaky hinge on your cabinets may result in you shopping for replacement hinges. If you keep your kitchen up, looking like a show model all the time, there is not much more annoying than the kitchen seeming to mock you, by squeaking each time you open a cabinet.
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.
If dealing with cabinet doors the type of hinge you use will depend on the door type. There are three door types; lipped, flush and overlay. A lipped door has a lip cut around it and works well with most hinges. A flush door rests within the frame and works well with butterfly hinges. A butterfly hinge works like a butt hinge but is hung on the outside and is more ornamental ranging in styles from colonial to art deco.
