If you have an overlay door you will need pivot hinges. One is attached to the top and the other to the bottom of a door, and portions of each are recessed into the door and frame creating a concealed hinge. Flush doors commonly use butterfly hinges. These hinges are so named because they look like a butterfly when opened. They consist of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin. They mount on the outside of the door and jamb or frame for a unique decorative look. You;ll find them in multiple styles ranging from colonial to art deco and beyond to suit your personal taste.
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.
The most basic hinge, the pivot hinge, was in use in by 1600 BCE (Before Common Era), based on archeological evidence from the ancient city of Hattusa. The pivot hinge is simply a post that rests in a socket or ring of stone, wood, or metal. This basic hinge design allows a door to swing fully open in both directions, or be blocked on one side to stop. Because of this feature, pivot hinges have been passed down through history and are still around everywhere, though in slightly fancier form. Saloon-style doors and bathroom stall doors are often mounted by pivot 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.
Pivot cabinet hinges are made for overlay doors. They are mounted on the bottom and top of the door with portions of each hinge bent over and mounted to the frame and the door resulting in a concealed hinge. They like all cabinet hinges are available in multiple finishes to match you style. One of the most popular types of cabinet hinge is the spring loaded or self - closing hinge. A small spring within the hinges forces the door to close on its own. These work wonders in the kitchen where you are commonly in and out of several cabinets daily.
When the first hinges were invented, they were only used for city or kingdom gates and doors to sacred or holy places. Hinged doors and gates protected only the most valuable of items and lives; everyone else still had to roll a rock in front of the door, or its equivalent.
They;re small. They;re used every day. And when they don;t match with a room;s décor they can really stick out. No they aren;t cabinet knobs. They;re hinges. First used in 1600 B.C. they have increased the strength of man nearly tenfold and are perhaps one of the most important inventions for everyday use.
