The aesthetics and function of your kitchen cabinets depend on the type of materials and hardware that you choose. Over time, the doors can begin to adjust and wind up misaligning and causing damage as they rub against one another.
However, having adjustable hinges can help alleviate this issue, and they also offer numerous other benefits that the Boca Cabinets team is here to explain.
What are Adjustable Hinges?
Like traditional hinges, the adjustable design is composed of two metal pieces. One section is the bottom part of the cabinet door, and the other is the top. When installed, the two parts create one complete piece.
Adjustable hinges are designed for simplicity with a beaded or tilt section with a ball joint at the base, allowing it to open up to 90 degrees from the center.
The hinges come in two designs: half overlay and full overlay, with half pivot points on the inside of the door and full pivot points on the outside edge. The most significant difference is how much space they occupy; closed full overlays are slightly larger.
Why Choose Adjustable Over Traditional?
Adjustable hinges are a practical solution that can be used for different scenarios. For example, if you have a pantry cabinet, having a door that opens all the way can create space problems if you have to walk through it to open it all the way.
An adjustable cabinet hinge allows you to set the door at a specific opening while still being able to access what's inside. The doors open angling can also be adjusted, ensuring it's better suited for your needs.
What are the Benefits?
Adjustable cabinet hinges come with many different advantages that can make your daily functions easier and increase aesthetics:
- They are adaptable to any hinge material, including metal.
- Easy adjustments make for the perfect door opening angle.
- The hinges can be installed on any existing doors already in place.
- They come in a wide array of materials, finishes, and styles to help keep cohesion and beautiful aesthetics.
- They keep cabinet doors aligned and longer-lasting.
