Now that you appreciate the invention of door hinges, you need to make sure you have the right ones at work in your home. First, make sure you have enough to do the job that needs to be done on your door. For the most part you will be able to choose between 2 or 3 door hinges on most doors. In some cases the door will come with the set number of hinges. In other cases, you should think about the weight of the door before deciding on the number of hinges that should be used.
Butterfly hinges are really decorative butt hinges that when fully opened have the look of a butterfly. They are used only on flush doors and add a decorative touch. If you want your cabinets to close by themselves which is always popular you need a spring loaded cabinet hinge. So called because they have a tiny spring inside that when released closes the door by itself. As versatile as they are popular they can be used on all three types of doors. Once you have found the right type of hinges for your cabinets you get to have fun choosing the finish to match your other hardware. After all, no kitchen is complete without cabinet door hinges and you want your revitalized kitchen to be everything you dreamed it could be.
If you have an overlay door you will need pivot hinges. One is attached to the top and the other to the bottom of a door, and portions of each are recessed into the door and frame creating a concealed hinge. Flush doors commonly use butterfly hinges. These hinges are so named because they look like a butterfly when opened. They consist of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin. They mount on the outside of the door and jamb or frame for a unique decorative look. Youll find them in multiple styles ranging from colonial to art deco and beyond to suit your personal taste.
Well, yes. Nevertheless, you should arm yourself with a little bit of data before you go shopping for new doors or the salesperson may think youve overestimated your screwdriver-and-drill experience. Show them that you might even qualify for a real tool belt by being to answer a few questions about your doors. For your doors, one thing you need to consider is if you want to order them pre-hung. Pre-hung doors are already hinged in their frame to hang square in the frame. This is probably your best choice for both ease and quality. Remember, the gorillas ripped one door off its hinges. That frame is probably damaged.
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. Youll never be annoyed by open cabinets again.
