Once you have found the right type of hinges for your cabinets you get to have fun choosing the finish to match your other hardware. After all, no kitchen is complete without cabinet door hinges and you want your revitalized kitchen to be everything you dreamed it could be.
There are two basic types of cabinet hinges you likely have in your home. Hidden cabinet hinges give your cabinetry a European feel to them with their recessed hinges that have no visible mechanism. Alternately, you can opt for exposed cabinet hinges, which tend to give a more traditional look and can also add to the overall appearance of the cabinetry.
Over a glass of wine with friends, an architect friend of mine and I started talking about hinges. And yes, I know you are thinking what an exciting conversation that must have been. But when you think about it, hinges are everywhere and affect all aspects of our lives. In fact, you probably have at least five hinged items on your person or in your purse/attaché/backpack/briefcase. You might have less, but I think you;ll be surprised as you read on.
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.
Most simply make do with the hinges that came with the cabinet. Only when they begin to squeak and sway in complaint about their endless exercise do we give thought to changing them. And only then do we only change the offending hinge that has failed to do its duty tightly and quietly.
If you enjoy refinishing old or antique furniture pieces, you might want to consider adding the extra feature of decorative hinges. Purchasing these pieces with a distressed finish can keep the antique quality of the furniture piece while adding the beauty of hinge design not available years ago.
So look around as you go about your daily tasks for those seemingly unimportant hinges that make your everyday steps so much easier. And while you"re at it, take a look at where you can update and add extra decorative touches with new decorative hinges.
