Door Hinges. Wednesday , August 30th , 2017 - 19:09:54 PM
Hinges are an integral part of architecture. Let us look at something as simple as a wooden box, with an attached lid. It opens easily because of the hinges. Hinges are primarily used for doors, and if you are considering renovating your home or building one from scratch, you might want to think about installing long lasting, and secure door hinges. Homes with children need doors with hinges for security purposes. The door which is adorned at the main entrance of a house, needs to be particularly secure as children often want to run out of the house at the slightest chance.
Today the best place to shop for hinges is not the local blacksmith or even the hardware store. It is online. Only by shopping online will you be able to see the vast selection of cabinet door hinges available as well as be able to compare prices, styles and finishes. So dont drag yourself all over town instead shop from the comfort of your own home with the click of a button. But hinges are one of the most common types of cabinet door hinges available. They consist of two leaves or flaps with screw holes that are held together by a pin. The flaps are recessed into the door and frame so when the cabinet is closed all that is visible is the hinge. The pin can be outfitted with balls or finials for a decorative touch.
Another way to tell if it is a good idea to replace your doors with pre-hung replacements is if the rest of the doors already cant in their frames. You can square them yourself, but if you are planning to replace these doors, go for the pre-hung. They take much less time to replace and come in pre-finished or raw wood. One last thing, is your door a left- or right-hanging door? Hmmm...you think for a minute. Nope, you are sure you havent heard that one. Dont worry its easy. When you are buying any type of hinged door; storm door, entry door, and even cabinet doors, OR when you are buying hinged door hardware; hinges especially and sometimes latches, the salesperson will eventually ask you whether it is a right- or left-hanging door. The way you figure it out is, when you pull open the door; does it open to your left or to your right? Whichever way it opens is the answer.
