Semi-Concealed Cabinet Hinges and Full-Concealed Hinges

Cabinet hinges hold the cabinet doors onto the cabinets and allow them to open and close. The semi-concealed hinge is attached to the outside of the face frame and the inside of the cabinet door. They come in a self-closing and a non-self-closing style and finishes such as solid brass, satin nickel and stainless steal. The fully-concealed hinge is attached to the inside wall of the cabinet and the inside of the door. They come in various sizes to fit any cabinet and door, and they come in self-closing and non-self-closing.

Surface-Mounted Cabinet Hinges

The surface-mounted hinges attach to the door and the face of the cabinet on the outside where it is visible. They come in many decorative styles. They also come in many finishes such as polished brass, polished nickel and antique copper. Some of the fancier hinges are also known as ornamental hinges. There is also a concealed version of the surface-mounted hinge. It attaches to the inside of the door and cabinet, and is sometimes referred to as a no-bore concealed hinge. They are used for frameless cabinets and cabinets where the doors are back to back. They usually only open to 90 degrees.

Demountable Cabinet Door Hinge

A demountable door hinge attaches to the cabinet door and the cabinet. Between the sections of the hinge is a pin that can be pulled out to easily remove the door. Many interior doors are installed using this type of hinge. They can be adjusted in three directions, so getting your door on straight is not a problem. There are also double demountable hinges that have two pins. One is at the edge of the door frame an the other is at the door. Most of these hinges have an insert piece. There is a slot cut into the door that the insert slides into. Others attach right to the face frame. They come in many sizes to fit every cabinet need.
