Pivot hinges are made for overlay doors which are doors that rest over the door frame. One is attached to the top and one to the bottom. Portions of each are then folded over and recessed into the door and frame resulting in a concealed hinge. If open cabinets are a pet peeve of yours then the ever popular spring-loaded or self-closing hinge is for you. Built with a small spring inside the door automatically closes after it is opened. You;ll never be annoyed by open cabinets again.
When your door hinges have gone past their prime, you can"t always find matching hinges to replace the ones that had treated you so well, for so long. So, your only option is to replace all the hinges on a door and if there are more doors in the room, you;ll probably have to replace those as well, or else that one hinge will be a tacky standout.
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.
There are many hinge styles to choose from and what you need will depend on what type of door you are hanging. There are hinges for residential doors, gates, screen doors and cabinet doors. Then there are three types of cabinet doors; lipped, flush and overlay. Butt hinges are the most common type of hinge. They consist of two flaps with screw holes connected by a pin and can be used on any door. The pin can be tipped with balls or finial s for a decorative touch. T-hinges are shaped like the letter T and are used on garage doors and chest lids. Pivot hinges are meant for overlay cabinet doors or doors that rest on the door frame. Butterfly hinges that are usually decorative as well as functional are for use on flush doors or doors that rest within the frame. One of the most popular types of hinge is the spring-loaded hinge. Also called a self-closing hinge a tiny spring inside allows the door to close on its own.
Most of today"s hinges developed from refinements of the basics of these simple designs. A common door hinge has open rings (sockets) on both the door and the frame and a pin (post) that runs through the rings. If that sounds familiar, it;s because it still uses the basic physics of the original pivot hinge developed over 3500 years ago.
No matter what type of cabinet door hinge and finish you choose you should be happy with the results. A cabinet door hinge may be small and it may be overlooked, but without them we wouldn;t have cabinets, we would simply have shelves. And sometimes things are better left hidden behind closed doors.
You are now ahead of the hinge game. If you want to learn even more about these items, you can use Internet search engines to dig up fascinating and little known facts on hinges. An example of such facts concerns the butt hinge. Not only does the butt hinge exist (really), but it is also available in two different varieties, the fixed pin version and the loose pin version. Beware of the trap that is so innocently being sprung before you. The fixed pin butt hinge means that you cannot remove the pin. The loose pin butt hinge means that you can remove the pin.
