Types of hinges

We've discussed how Overlay affects the look of your kitchen, now let's figure out how to select the correct hinges to complete the makeover!

Hinges are the final piece of the puzzle when it comes to replacing your cabinet doors with doors that are a different size than the originals. 

Changing the Overlay can be daunting, so we've put together this page to help make this process easy.

Hinges come in several different types for both Face Frame Cabinets and Frameless. 

The Overlay size determines the size of hinge required.  1" Overlay will require a 1" Hinge, 1/2" Overlay requires a 1/2" Hinge, etc.

BlumĀ© is the brand that we recommend.  They have a long history of quality hinges, most of which include a soft-close mechanism. They are readily available from most Big Box Stores as well as online retailers.

The images to the right show the Face Frame guide for Full Overlay and Partial overlay as well as their Frameless guide for determining hinges based on Overlay.
