Giving your cabinets a new and improved look doesn't have to come as a steep investment. Something as little as a hardware update can turn your kitchen cabinets from drab to fab in no time at all. HardwareSource is proud to be a top destination for semi-concealed hinges that homeowners and professionals can count on when it comes to residential remodels or commercial construction. We keep our inventory stocked with a wide variety of finishes and self-closing options to ensure you find the right solution for your home. You can even utilize our Shopping Options column to search by finish group, base material, cabinet door type, or price to save time.
Semi-concealed cabinet hinges are one of the most popular types of hinges made for face frame cabinets. Half of the hinge is visible on the face frame and other half is hidden, because it is securely mounted to the back of the cabinet door. Variable overlay hinges are designed for doors that completely overlay the frame and do not have a cut out on the back. We offer free-swinging and self-closing options to suit any particular need. Self-closing semi-concealed hinges are incredibly convenient, allowing your cabinet doors to close on their own. This can come in handy when you are cooking in the kitchen, especially if you have been handling chicken, fish, or other foods that can contaminate.
Free-swinging semi-concealed cabinet hinges are ideal in areas where there are no obstructions. Your cabinet doors can swing freely, but they will require a separate catch to keep the door tightly closed. We carry lip cabinet hinges as well as hinges for reverse bevel doors in exterior applications. With an array of finishes at your fingertips, you are sure to find something that suits your taste. We offer antique and burnished finishes in brass, copper, or silver, polished chrome, flat black, oil-rubbed bronze, and satin nickel, just to name a few.
At last, you can spruce up the cabinets in your home for a fraction of the price you might pay elsewhere. We are happy to help in any way you can. Whether you need help finding a specific product in our inventory or you would like a push in the right direction from one of our hardware experts, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you have while shopping with us today.

Face Frame: Face frame cabinets have a “frame” that attaches to the front of the cabinet. The face frame gives the cabinet box extra strength while adding dimension to the door fronts. Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
