Q: Which kitchen hinge should I use? Which kitchen hinge is the best? Which kitchen hinge is for me?
A: So there are two main types of kitchen hinge or wardrobe hinge. There is the softclose hinge and standard hinge.
A standard hinge is basically the same as a softclose hinge, however it doesn't have the added benefit of a damper within the hinge to slow down the closing motion of the door.
A softclose hinge has the benefit of a damper. This means you can slam the door and it won't bang. Our softclose hinges on the Hardware Page are the best quality around. They are adjustable so that you can change the amount of 'soft close' the door features. This is particularly useful if you have a shaker wardrobe door for instance, you can make the soft close stronger to match the weight of the door.
Another handy DIY tip for wardrobe door hinges, when you have 3 hinges per door, is to use a pair of softclose hinges, and a single standard hinge. Some wardrobe fitters have found that three softclose hinges on a wardrobe door can often prevent the door from closing fully. By replacing the third wardrobe hinge from softclose to standard, they could still benefit from the softclose function, but could also save a little money per door using this method. It does not affect quality at all.
A great way to use our shaker doors.This shaker wardrobe was once a tired old pine louvre wardrobe. Our client measured their existing doors, and the hinge positions for each hole. When their shaker wardrobe doors arrived, all they had to do, was remove the old doors (by unscrewing the hinge from the door, leaving it screwed into the cabinet) and then install their new shaker doors.
It is such a simple process, and we are constantly amazed at how people put our shaker doors to use. You can see in this photo, that the client has used 4mm mirror in their shaker wardrobe doors. To do this, simply measure the panel size, and subtract about 3mm from the height and the width. This is the size of mirror you will need to order.
The best way to affix a mirror to a shaker wardrobe door, is to lay the shaker door down on a flat, clean surface (carpet usually) and use mirror adhesive.
Read the instructions on the mirror adhesive first and use accordingly. Once the adhesive has cured as per the instructions, re-hang your shaker wardrobe door and hey presto! You have succeeded.
