Door Hinges / October 11, 2018 / Yvette Guerette
Because visible cabinet door hinges are well always visible they become expected and common place over time. Eventually you dont even notice them anymore. At least until they become unhinged as noted above. With just a few twists of a screw you can replace all your visible hinges with new ones that can breathe fresh life into your once boring cabinet doors. For example many hinges come in silver or brass. Why not change it up with deep black hammered copper or cast wax molded versions of antique hinges. If you have a rustic feel in your kitchen you can decorate H or HL hinges that make your cooking space look like a turn of the century country kitchen.
Like you can get new ones for your cabinets new ones for different types of furniture from tables to desks and you can even get ones that are concealed so you dont even have to look at them if you dont want to. To check out all the door hinges that are available dont make the long trip to the hardware store. What you can do instead is just hit the Internet for some online shopping. Comparing products and their prices through all the online stores is a breeze plus when you do come across something you like and purchase it it will be shipped right to your home. Really shopping has never been so convenient since you dont have to step foot outside your home to do it. Ultimately door hinges do serve that practical purpose of allowing us to open and shut our doors.
So named because they are shaped like the letter T the horizontal part attaches to the frame and the vertical part to the door. These hinges can also be plain and functional or ornamental. If you dont want to see the hinge at all you can try a Soss hinge. These door hinges are commonly used on folding doors. Both sides are recessed into the door so it is completely concealed. One of the most popular of door hinges is the spring loaded or self-closing hinge because when mounted the door will close on its own. This type of door hinge is extremely popular in kitchens because people are frequently opening and closing cabinets. Once you choose your type of hinge you can choose the finish that will really bring your room together. Select from chrome brass bronze or nickel all in polished brushed antiqued or oil rubbed forms and match your hinges and cabinet knobs. Never underestimate the strength of door hinges or their ability to finish the look of a room.
