The classic butt hinge has been a staple on cabinets for many years. This quintessential hinge is comprised of two symmetrical leaves joined by a pivoting pin. Depending on the application, small butt hinges can be installed directly onto the cabinet and door or mortised to prevent a gap. When the cabinet door is closed, only the hinge pin is visible, which will give any cabinet a time-honored appearance. As your one-stop shop for small door hinges, you can count on finding the solution you need for your home improvement or woodworking project right here.
We offer a wide variety of finishes and sizes, with or without removable pins and decorative tips. Plus, we only keep our inventory stocked with top-of-the-line products made by industry-leading brands, such as Alno, Brusso, and Sugatsune. One of the greatest benefits of choosing butt hinges is that they can sustain heavy weight. A small butt hinge may not be able to sustain as much weight as its standard size counterpart, but it will ensure that the flaps and lids of certain casework projects can close and open smoothly. Small butt hinges are ideal for jewelry boxes, small cabinets, ring boxes, and much more. We also offer lift-off hinges that feature loose joints, so cabinet doors can be easily removed after installation in the event of painting or renovating.
You want your hinges to be functional, of course, but that doesn't mean you should have to compromise on style. We offer a handful of cabinet butt hinges that are decorative in design, so you can dress up your casework in an elegant way. Some small door hinges feature decorative finial tips to add detail and style to your cabinet doors. Some of the most popular finishes we carry include iron, oil-rubbed bronze, old copper, and antique brass, just to name a few. We also offer clean and contemporary finishes in the form of bright brass, polished nickel, and so much more.

Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors. Ball Bearing: Ball bearing hinges have ball bearings to act as a buffer between the knuckles. They tend to be quieter and more durable than plain bearing hinges. They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers. Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
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.
