Although steel is one of the most common materials for hinges, they can also be manufactured from brass, bronze or aluminum. However, even when the hinge is constructed of brass or bronze, the pins on a high-quality hinge are still manufactured from steel for increased durability. In addition, hinges designed for the heaviest of doors and highest usage typically are only made in steel due to its strength and durability.
The door hinges you have will likely have either two or three holes. How you change the door hinges depends on which style you have. If you are replacing three-hole door hinges, you should start by putting in the middle screw first, then put in the bottom screw. Finally you should put in the top screw. If you repeat this on both the top and bottom of a cabinet door you will be able to keep your door in alignment. If you have two-hole door hinges things can get a little trickier. The easiest way to do them is to have someone help you. Their job will be to hold the door in place while you put the screws in. You can also balance the door on something while you put the screws in. But, this can be a little frustrating if the door moves or shifts before you get both screws 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, thank goodness, are relatively simple items. With a few handyman"s tools, you could be replacing them before you know it. The existing hinge just has to be unscrewed and taken off to leave the way clear for the new hinge to be screwed on. Then take your door, window, lid or whatever and connect it back to where it came from.
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.
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.
