Although they are small pieces of hardware, they will catch the eye if there;s one that doesn;t match. It;s the old truth that no one notices when things are right, but they always seem to see when things are wrong.
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.
Pivot hinges are made for overlay doors which are doors that rest over the door frame. One is attached to the top and one to the bottom. Portions of each are then folded over and recessed into the door and frame resulting in a concealed hinge. If open cabinets are a pet peeve of yours then the ever popular spring-loaded or self-closing hinge is for you. Built with a small spring inside the door automatically closes after it is opened. You;ll never be annoyed by open cabinets again.
Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the job they are assigned. So if your front door was off its hinges you have to have the strength to move it yourself. That is why before the hinge was in use many people entered their homes by climbing up a ladder and going through a hole in the roof.
No matter what type of cabinet door hinge and finish you choose you should be happy with the results. A cabinet door hinge may be small and it may be overlooked, but without them we wouldn;t have cabinets, we would simply have shelves. And sometimes things are better left hidden behind closed doors.
Some say the hinge is the second most important invention, the wheel being the first. A hinge cabinet or otherwise is generally eight to ten times stronger than its assigned job. So imagine for a moment if hinges had not been invented. Our things would be or shelves for all to see or we use large rocks or hunks of wood to act as a door.
No matter what type of door is being installed, a hinge of some type is necessary. Hinge designs include butt hinges, spring hinges, geared continuous hinges and a myriad of utility hinge designs. Which one you purchase depends on the location and function of the door. A quality hinge provides long-lasting functionality which saves in repair costs and time.
