Having said this, and to avoid grief and misery (like having to get back in the car, drive back to the store, dig out the receipt and start over), you do need to know an important fact. You need to know if the hinge that you require is left-handed or right-handed. Without this important information, you are doomed to a guessing game with a 50% chance of losing or winning, but really, more of losing.
When you are shopping for door hinges to use, you may find yourself marveling at all the designs on the market, but you need to keep a few details in mind. There are two choices in door hinges - removable pin or fixed pin. Which one you want will depend on if you ever need to take the door off. Removable pin doors allow you pop the door down should you need to do something like move a piece of furniture through a doorway that is a little too skinny for the furniture pieces. Also make sure to look at how your door hinges are currently constructed and that any bolt on the new door hinges won;t interfere with your molding.
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.
No matter what type of cabinet hinge you choose, you still have to decode on the finish. Whether you want to go for a fifties look with oil rubbed bronze cabinet hinges or a more modern, European look with brushed nickel or polished chrome you"ll be able to find what you need to match your cabinet knobs and drawer pulls. The cabinet hinge really completes your home whether you know it or not.
Available in a vast array of styles, sizes and colors hinges not only make your life easier they also make a room complete. The only way to get a complete idea of what is out there in the world of hinges is to do a little online shopping. Sure you could trek to all the hardware stores in your neighborhood and dig through endless boxes that may only hold a few hinges when you need twenty or more. But wouldn;t you prefer to sit at home and find what you need with the click of a button? Yes you would.
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.
Most people only think about hinges when they are staring at a pesky, painted-over door hinge, trying to remove the pin so they can move a new piece of furniture into the room. But even then, the most attention the hinge probably gets is a few choice curse words. How poor we treat the hinge, especially since some historians consider it an invention on par with the wheel. The simple hinge has simply changed our lives.
