If you have concealed hinges and want to move to surface mounted cabinet hinges, chances are good that you;ll want to go with either semi-concealed hinges where only the frame wing is visible (the door part goes on the back side of the cabinet door), overlay hinges, or inset hinges. It just depends on the type cabinet doors you have.
Some are shaped like butterflies and others you can;t even see. Some open with a pivot and others close automatically. There are many types of cabinet door hinge available, but we often don;t even look at them in our own homes. We should because without them our daily lives would be harder.
So if your idea of a good time is to repeatedly take a door off of its hinges before putting it back in place, then the loose pin butt hinge may be the ideal companion for you.
The settlement of the West brought on even more demand for hinges for all of the new homestead-building. Even the "etailgate"e of the iconic Conestoga wagon relied on hinges as did the toolbox sometimes mounted on the side of the wagon. Initially, the blacksmiths were concerned with production and quality. Eventually, they had more time to create items that were both functional and esthetically pleasing.
Cabinet door hinges are one of the biggest afterthoughts in home design but they often get the biggest workout in the home. Nary an hour goes by that someone isn;t opening a cabinet somewhere in the home, whether it;s in the kitchen, pantry, bathroom or hallway.
If you go with hidden hinges, the chances are good you are looking to simply replace the cabinet hinges you already have. In this case you want to make sure that you buy ones that are similar to the ones you have already been using because how they are fitted to the wood is specific to a particular type of cabinet hinges.
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.
