Regardless what room you are going to decorate, kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, cabinet is an essential element you have to put to accommodate your necessities and to free the room from clutters. When it comes to choose cabinets hinges, you will find out that each hinge has different style and function.
There are four basic cabinet door hinge types:
•Overlay cabinet doors (the door is larger than the opening and “lays over” it)
•Full Inset cabinet doors (the door fits completely in the opening and is flush with the cabinet surface)
•Partial Inset cabinet doors (part of the door is inset into the opening and part of the door overlays the opening)
•Offset cabinet doors (very similar to “Inset” however the hinge is surface mounted and all of it is visible.)
Overlay cabinet door hinge
The overlay dimension is measured from the edge of the cabinet opening to edge of the cabinet door as it lays in the closed position on the cabinet. The variable overlay hinge accommodates any overlay dimension because it attaches to the surface of the cabinet and not to the edge of the cabinet opening. This kind of hinge is very suitable for bathroom or kitchen.
Full Inset Cabinet Doors
Full inset cabinet doors are used on cabinets where the door butts up against the edge of the cabinet opening. The door lays flush with the surface of the cabinet face. Full inset doors can use either butt hinges or surface mounted cabinet hinges. Most homeowners use mounted cabinets for saving the flooring space. By means of this hinge you can open and close the door of the cabinets easily. The mounted cabinets are also suitable for small bathroom and small bedroom.
Partial Inset Cabinet Doors
The most commonly used partial inset cabinet doors dimension today is the 3/8″ inset. The 1/2″ inset, 5/8″ inset and 3/4″ inset hinges were used in the 1950′s and 1960′s and are no longer used in new construction. Since this is a rare product, you will spend more cost in repairing this type of hinge.
Offset Cabinet Doors
There could be an infinite number of offset dimensions; however, most of the offsets that we run into nowadays are 3/8″ offset. The hinge used is a 3/8″ offset hinge. Similar to partial inset cabinet door hinge, this type of hinge is also a rare edition product. Many antique cabinets use this type of hinge. You must work hard to find the most suitable offset door hinge for your antique cabinet’s doors.
