Installing new kitchen cabinet hinges makes for one of the easiest and least costly ways to give your kitchen a fresh, new look. Along with knobs, handles, and pulls, hinges add flair and personality to an otherwise plain cabinet appearance.
Some of the common types of hinges used on cabinets are:
- Flush door hinge: concealed behind door, only shows the barrel of the hinge
- Ball Bearing Hinge: good for heavier door, these have permanent lubricant
- Knuckle Hinge: a decorative knob or knuckle is visible when the cabinet is shut
- Lift-Joint Hinge: allows door to be removed without unscrewing hinge
- Loose-Pin Hinge: also allows easy removal of door by lifting hinge pin out
- Lacqured Cabinet Hinge: decorative visible hinges, brass or black
- Cabinet Pivot: attaches to top and bottom of door, concealed.
