Hinges are surprisingly strong. They can generally do eight to ten times the work they are assigned. So the door hinge puts the power of the Roman goddess Cardea into your hands. And the best way to see the biggest variety of door hinges is to shop online. Dont drag yourself all over the city looking for that perfect hinge to complete your kitchen makeover. Instead browse the selection online and compare and buy hinges from the comfort of your living room.
Thank goodness that the hinge came to be. Some even say it is the second most important invention after the wheel. Today there are a wide variety of door hinges available. The best way to browse this large selection is to shop online. Dont waste time dragging yourself to hardware store after hardware store only to find they dont have enough or any of the kind you need. Youll find the best selection and the best prices online. Amongst all the different door hinges out there one of the most common types is the butt hinge. It is two leaves with screw holes held together by a pin or a rod. Both leaves are recessed, one end into the door and the other into the frame. When the door is closed all you see is the pin. With this type of door hinge it is easy to take the door down because all you have to do is remove the pin.
Door hinges have a thankless job. For most of their mundane lives, they simply swing back and forth, holding the door securely in its frame. Occasionally, they strain as children swing back and forth on the door handles. Other times, they shudder to a sudden stop as a door is thoughtlessly slammed. But when door hinges become a bit unhinged from years of use, they can not only cause doors to squeak, stick or rub, but allow heat to escape and cold to enter. Maintaining your door hinges is a simple process, something you can do once or twice a year. And it will keep your hinges working properly for years to come.
So youve decided to give your kitchen a facelift. Youve decided on a paint color, picked out a new counter top and are re-facing your cabinets. Heck you might even throw in a new fridge or range. Once youve decided on the big items like stainless steel appliances and granite countertops it is important not to forget the little things that make your kitchen complete. Cabinet hardware can make or break the look you just spent so much money to achieve. For example if you want a sleek and modern kitchen you would not want traditional cabinet door hinges or decorative hinges that will take away from the streamlined look you worked so hard to achieve. You also want yours to match your knobs and pulls in finish and style.
Whether its because your door is old and no longer works with your décor, or you want something a little more flashy in the space, trading out doors and door hinges is not too difficult of a job. Dont think you can do it? Think you need a lot of tools to get the job done? Think again. All you need is a few shims, or thin pieces of wood that can be slipped under the door to hold it at the right height, nails or an electric screwdriver and the door and door hinges. Here are the steps for taking on the installation process.
