Door Hinges / October 11, 2018 / Yvette Guerette
You can then get a sense of which works best for you from the standpoint of design and décor before going through the effort of replacing all the cabinet door hinges in the home. Recently there have been major advancements in how European cabinet door hinges operate. As the improvisation process of how kitchen cupboard doors open and close continues we now have what is known as the soft-close feature. Leaders in the cabinet accessories manufacturing industry like Julius Blum Nisko Silentia and Grass America have all designed their own versions of the soft-closing hinges.
Whats great about door hinges is that believe it or not they are available in different styles. Like the antique ones mentioned earlier as an example. You can even get ones that have a colonial feel to them featuring elegant scrollwork and looping designs. Modern ones that have a sleek look are also an option along with many others including those that are on the contemporary side and some that are more traditional. Plus along with purchasing door hinges for your doors there are others offered by manufacturers for other things throughout your home as well.
This is just figuring the cost of the materials though. To have them installed by a cabinetry professional may cost an additional seventy five to one hundred and fifty dollars. If you cannot locate a soft close part to work with your existing hinges or you are not interested in switching out your hinges to be able to benefit from the new clip-on piece you can purchase a buffer shock absorber that attaches to the cabinet separate from the hinge. Some of these mechanisms get pressed into a hole that is drilled into the cupboard top or bottom. Other styles can be installed using screws. The purchase cost of these parts ranges from three to six dollars each. There will be only one slow-close part that needs to be installed per kitchen or bathroom cabinet door.
