What are concealed hinges?
Hidden hinges are quickly becoming the industry standard for cabinet doors, partially due to appearance, function, and ease of adjustability. Unlike other types of hinges, these hinges are completely hidden from view so that you can only see the surface of your cabinet doors. Concealed hinges sit flush within cabinet doors, providing a smooth surface. These hinges were originally designed in Europe for frameless cabinetry. European hinges are very similar to hidden cabinet hinges, except that they require holes bored into the back of the cabinet doors.
Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, hidden door hinges are very easy to adjust once they are installed. All you need to do is simply turn the small adjustment screws if your cabinet doors aren't hanging evenly, won't close correctly, or are at the wrong depth. Concealed hardware is particularly popular with homeowners who are installing new cabinets, but they can also be used to replace old hinges and make vintage cabinets look a little more sophisticated.
Our hidden cabinet hinges are available in numerous opening angles, ranging from 90 to 180 degrees. Whether you are looking for a surface-mounted hinge or a concealed barrel hinge for your woodworking project, our hardware experts can help you find the right solution to suit any need. Both SOSS and Sugatsune supply concealed hinges made from high-grade stainless steel, which is durable and easy to maintain. A barrel hinge is commonly used in the manufacture of small cases, boxes, and other installations that may require hidden door hinges for a clean and sophisticated appearance.
We also carry tip-out tray hinges that can help you make the cabinet panel in front of your kitchen sink tip out up to 45 degrees. Every pair of tip-out tray hinges is made of zinc-plated steel to ensure corrosion resistance in coastal regions, marine environments, and more. Most of the hidden hinges that we supply are sold individually, and you would normally need to order two or three hinges per door being installed. Before making a final decision, remember to double check the following measurements: door thickness, mortise depth, plate size, and weight.
When it comes to those kitchen cabinet hinges you won't be able to find at your local hardware store, you will surely find them here. For more than 125 years, we have maintained a tradition of providing courteous, friendly service as well as a wide selection of cabinet door hinges and hard-to-find items.
