Emmeline. Door Hinges. September 23rd , 2017.
Door hinges are one of the most vital parts of home architecture, yet they have been taken for granted by us. If it werent for hinges, then opening your doors, cabinets and car doors would become a hassle. Door hinges may have been invisible to you throughout your lifetime but after reading this article, you might want to give them some serious thought. Without door hinges, a mere act of going to the bathroom would require so much effort, that you want to go to open the door well in advance, as opening and closing of the door would be a painstaking task.
Some are shaped like butterflies and others you cant even see. Some open with a pivot and others close automatically. There are many types of cabinet door hinge available, but we often dont even look at them in our own homes. We should because without them our daily lives would be harder. Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the job they are assigned. So if your front door was off its hinges you have to have the strength to move it yourself. That is why before the hinge was in use many people entered their homes by climbing up a ladder and going through a hole in the roof.
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.
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.
Geared continuous hinges are most often found in steel or aluminum. Lighter weight continuous piano hinges are often made of brass. The heavy duty commercial hinges distribute weight and stress along the full length of door and frame, thus preventing misaligned pivot points of individual hinges. Buyers should look for high quality hinges from well-known manufacturers. Cheaper products provide inferior performance and will require repair and replacement long before a higher grade hinge. Companies such as Stanley even provide a limited lifetime warranty on their commercial grade door hinges.
