If you have folding doors you might use a Soss hinge. Named for its inventor this door hinge is recessed into the door edges so when the door is folded it is completely concealed. It must be installed exactly or it will not work.
Garage doors are usually attached with T-hinges. Shaped like the letter T the horizontal part is attached to the door frame while the vertical part is attached to the door. These hinges can be plain or ornamental and lift up rather than out.
When selecting new hinges, you want to keep a few things in mind. First, what;s the style of your kitchen? Is it modern, traditional, country or retro? What kind do you have now and what hinges would not only look good, but also properly support the door so it doesn;t sag or even fail over the time. Too weak of hinges and you"ll always be straightening the door. This can become maddening very quickly.
They type of hinge you choose depends on the type of door you have as well as your tastes. There are three types of door, lipped, overlay and flush. Lipped doors have a lip around them, an overlay door rests on the door frame and a flush door rests within the frame. If you have an overlay door a popular hinge that works well is the pivot hinge. A decorative butterfly hinge works well on flush doors while some hinges work on all three types. A well-liked hinge that works on all doors is the spring loaded hinge. This hinge has a spring in it that makes the door close all by itself. Once you find the right hinge your project will be complete.
One of the most common types of hinge is the butt hinge. It consists of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin or rod. It is most often used on doors and cabinets. Another common type of hinge is the t-strap hinge. This hinge is shaped like the letter T with the horizontal part attaching to the frame and the vertical part attaching to the door. This type of hinge is usually seen on garage doors and box or chest lids and can be decorative. It ranges in styles from colonial to art deco and beyond.
Typically the type of cabinet door hinge you need is dictated by the type of cabinet door you have. There are three types of cabinet door; lipped, flush and overlay. A lipped door has a lip cut all the way around it. A flush door rests within the door frame and an overlay door rests on the door frame.
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.
