Cabinet door hinges are a key piece of hardware that carry the power of function and aesthetics at the same time. Homeowners absolutely need hinges to open their home doors, kitchen cabinet doors, and more, but they don’t strictly offer functional utility. Thousands upon thousands of hinges exist in different finishes and styles which makes choosing a hinge a very personal experience. While someone can make a quick and easy selection of basic plain hinges, customers have the option of choosing something more specific to the entire look and flow of their home. Consider the many ways you can incorporate hinges to add style to your Custom Service Hardware RTA cabinets and doors.
Decorative kitchen and bathroom hinges
Cabinets are everywhere in most homes. People use them to store toiletries in the bathroom, food in the kitchen, and other various storage points. And it doesn’t just stop at the home – cabinets are used in office kitchens, work rooms, and more. Cabinet door hinges can add a great deal of character to a room. Instead of having them be hidden or plain, decorative hinges allow for some fun. Whether you just want a soft, antique design, or you want your bright copper finish to stand out, you can find the right decorative hinge at a variety of price ranges.
Traditional concealed hinges are relatively easy to install and they keep the aesthetics of your cabinets intact without any sign of the mechanism inside. Concealed hinges create a clean look to your kitchen cabinets. Some concealed hinges require additional work, drilling a recess for the hinge position in the door. However, others are incredibly cheap and simple to install, and they are completely invisible. If you want to go a fancier route, choose Soss hinges, which offers solid installation for inset doors, but they’re equally as invisible when the cabinet doors are shut. Some Soss hinges also offer the benefit of spring closing, removing the fear of slamming your door too often.
Self closing hinges
Instead of focusing on aesthetics (or the lack thereof), making the cabinet doors easy to open and close may be your priority. Youngdale produces self-closing hinges that fit both overlay and lip inset cabinet styles. This type of hinge is easier to install compared to other European style hinges. While not completely hidden from view, Youngdale hinges are mostly concealed once installed when the cabinet door is shut.
AVENTOS lift hinges
Choose a truly modern hinge system for your kitchen cabinets with the AVENTOS lift hinges. Instead of opening doors side by side, this system lets you access your upper cabinets with ease by lifting one panel above the cabinets. This lift system creates a more modern feel to any home, given the single panel lift. Customers can typically choose between wood and aluminum, so you can still craft your kitchen cabinets in the style you prefer.
