Door Hinges. Friday , September 08th , 2017 - 08:22:22 AM
If you have concealed hinges and want to move to surface mounted cabinet hinges, chances are good that youll want to go with either semi-concealed hinges where only the frame wing is visible (the door part goes on the back side of the cabinet door), overlay hinges, or inset hinges. It just depends on the type cabinet doors you have. Before you redo all your hinges buy several different styles and finishes and put them on them in various parts of the kitchen. You can then get a sense of which works best for you from the standpoint of design and décor before going through the effort of replacing all the cabinet door hinges in the home.
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.
You should put the first screw in at this point, at the top of the door. Make sure someone is holding up the weight of the door (or keep it on shims) so the weight doesnt pull that screw out. Close the door and make sure it shuts properly. It should be hitting the strike plate evenly. If not, adjust the shim placement until you have even amounts of space all the way around and the door seems to be evenly set. Immediately put a screw in the bottom door hinges. This will make sure you have the door hinges lined up in a manner that will allow the door to open and close correctly.
