Old kitchen cabinet hinges. There are two basic types of cabinet hinges you likely have in your home. Hidden cabinet hinges give your cabinetry a European feel to them with their recessed hinges that have no visible mechanism. Alternately, you can opt for exposed cabinet hinges, which tend to give a more traditional look and can also add to the overall appearance of the cabinetry.
If you go with hidden hinges, the chances are good you are looking to simply replace the old kitchen cabinet hinges you already have. In this case, you want to make sure that you buy ones that are similar to the ones you have already been using because how they are fitted to the wood is specific to a particular type of cabinet hinges. On the other hand, if you have exposed hinges, you have a lot more choice when it comes to changing them out.
Depending on your tastes, cabinet hinges can be as prominent or as subtle as you want them to be. Some people prefer smaller cabinet hinges that are attached to the inside of the cabinet leaving just a small peek of the hinge area to show. They may be made in a variety of different metals to give a little touch of contrast to your overall cabinetry appearance. If you are working on a rustic or country look, you should look for strap cabinet hinges or other large cabinet hinges that go on the outside of the cabinet. These are available from simple black designs to beautifully ornate pieces that seem as if they may have come from a palace. This style of cabinet hinges can really dress up the doors you are putting them on, making what had been ordinary cabinets suddenly look like they're expensive, custom-made jobs.
When it's time to do a remodeling job on the cabinet doors or cabinets, themselves, it is always a good time to think about replacing the old kitchen cabinet hinges on them. You could stick with the factory standard pieces that come with many cabinets, but you could also have a little more fun with your décor, and choose cabinet hinges that suit the style of home you are trying to create. Often when you are getting new cabinets, you can ask that there be no holes placed in them, until you figure out what hinges you want to attach. That way, there won't be any patch-up work if the cabinet hinges you choose don't fit the current cabinet holes.
Meanwhile, if you are retrofitting existing cabinets, you need to make sure the cabinet hinges you buy will allow the doors to open and close smoothly and correctly. While you may look at them in the store and think they are close enough, the best way to really find out is to try them out. You may want to get a few different designs and experiment to see which ones suit you best before you spend a lot of money to purchase enough cabinet hinges to replace all the ones in the room.
