Door Hinges / October 11, 2018 / Yvette Guerette
Its a fairly easy task to change the hinges on your door but it is somewhat time consuming. This is something that will dramatically change the look of your door and it is something that you definitely want to consider changing. Alright lets go over the different types of hinges that are available. Hinges have holes in them and they usually come in two different amounts of holes - two holes or three holes. The three hole hinges are going to increase the stability of the door. So if your door is heavy than you will want a three holed hinge over the two holed hinge.
You might want to categorize hinges according to residential and commercial use. There are many types of decorative and functional door hinges including rust ic hinges 5/8 and 1/4 radius hinges butt hinges strap hinges spring hinges double acting hinges and more. This selection includes door hinges in a wide variety of colors and sizes that are designed to fit any of your home improvement needs and provides an instant life to your home. For gates you should consider pivot hinges which are best suited to work for heavy duty doors. For kitchen cabinets you can work with something clean and dainty.
Alternatively if you can identify the brand name and model number of your hinge you can contact the manufacture directly to determine if theres a clip-on attachment is designed to work with your hinge style. If so they will be able to direct you to the nearest distributor in your area. If you determine that the upgrade is not available there is an alternative discussed in the later part of this article. Presently the additional clip-on parts cost from three to six dollars per piece. Most average sized kitchens have about twenty five cupboard doors. Calculating one slow-close clip per door puts us in the neighborhood of one hundred and twenty dollars ($120) to upgrade a standard sized kitchen to have this feature throughout.
