Why Use Concealed Door Hinges? Why Use Concealed Door Hinges?
Concealed door hinges offer several advantages when compared to traditional hinges. These are some of the benefits to installing concealed door hinges. Read on to see if this is a good option for your home.
Like the name implies, a concealed door hinge is designed to be completely hidden from view when the door is closed. To some this may not sound like a big deal, but to those with ‘hidden doors’ this can make all the difference in the world. Hidden doors are often seen with kitchen and bathroom cabinets, closets, small bathrooms, and work studios. They offer the advantage of having a door that can be decorated as a wall, allowing for continuity in a room.
When using a concealed door hinge on a cabinet door you have the advantage of hiding minor imperfections in the construction. You are less likely to notice a door that hangs a little to the left if you don’t have a hinge on the outside that looks crooked.
Concealed door hinges are generally a lot easier to install than a traditional door hinge. Most of them are made to simply clip on and off, allowing you to install them without any tools. This can make simple tasks much easier by allowing you better access to add shelves, clean the cabinets, or change the doors.
