Door Hinges. Saturday , September 09th , 2017 - 09:29:50 AM
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.
Another related lefty-righty question is: Does it really matter if you mix up right- and left-hanging cabinet door hinges? Not usually. Most door and cabinet door hinges can masquerade as each other if you rotate them 180°. The pins will drop in the same way and everything. In rare cases, the pin only goes in one way, the cabinet door hinges plate is shaped or decorated to only look right on its right (or left!) side. If in doubt, ask a contractor or cabinetmaker. Tip: If you are going to take your old doors or cabinet doors off, refinish them, and put them back on, I suggest labeling each of the cabinet door hinges as you take them off. In your kitchen for example, the top left-hanging hinge on the first cabinet on the east side of your kitchen could be marked: TLE1. That way everything will line up exactly as it did before you took them down.
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.
