Once you"ve decided on the big items like stainless steel appliances and granite countertops it is important not to forget the little things that make your kitchen complete. Cabinet hardware can make or break the look you just spent so much money to achieve.
Buyers should look for high quality hinges from well-known manufacturers. Cheaper products provide inferior performance and will require repair and replacement long before a higher grade hinge. Companies such as Stanley even provide a limited lifetime warranty on their commercial grade door hinges.
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.
As you look for replacement hinges there are a few things to keep in mind. If the door hinges you are replacing are from a cabinet, do you want to change all the cabinet hinges out? If not, you need to look for replacement hinges that match the ones you removed, or you will have a tacky set of cabinets where everyone knows which ones are the replacement hinges. If its individual door replacement hinges you"re looking for, you have a little more flexibility, but still want to make sure the hinges you select go with the rest of the room décor.
These simple ones were called pivot hinges and consisted of a post that fits into a ring or a socket. If you put a post on the top and bottom of each door and a socket in the floor and top of the doorframe, you have a simple door that swings open both ways. Other mountings of them stop the door at a certain point. An example of an ancient pivot hinged door with a stop is a drawbridge. Two massive pivot hinges were mounted on the bottom outside corners of the castle; chains raised the bridge into a door position which was then barred from the inside to hold it in place.
When it"s time to do a remodeling job on the cabinet doors or cabinets, themselves, it is always a good time to think about replacing the cabinet hinges on them. You could stick with the factory standard pieces that come with many cabinets, but you could also have a little more fun with your décor, and choose cabinet hinges that suit the style of home you are trying to create. Often when you are getting new cabinets, you can ask that there be no holes placed in them, until you figure out what hinges you want to attach. That way, there won;t be any patch up work if the cabinet hinges you choose don;t fit the current cabinet holes.
Hinges come in many various forms, depending upon their designated use. Cabinet hinges and those on a door will be the main types that the ordinary person would encounter in their normal home life, but even narrowing the uses down to these two basic functions involves many different hinge types.
