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.
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
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.
Similar to the butterfly hinge but recessed into the doorjamb and frame is the standard butt hinge. Also constructed of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin or rod, this cabinet door hinge can be used on any of the three door types. Another popular hinge that fits all three doors is a spring-loaded or self-closing hinge. Ideal for the kitchen where cabinets are open and closed often these hinges have a small spring inside that closes the door automatically after it has been opened.
When the first hinges were invented, they were only used for city or kingdom gates and doors to sacred or holy places. Hinged doors and gates protected only the most valuable of items and lives; everyone else still had to roll a rock in front of the door, or its equivalent.
Although steel is one of the most common materials for hinges, they can also be manufactured from brass, bronze or aluminum. However, even when the hinge is constructed of brass or bronze, the pins on a high-quality hinge are still manufactured from steel for increased durability. In addition, hinges designed for the heaviest of doors and highest usage typically are only made in steel due to its strength and durability.
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.
