Furniture and cabinet hardware are the nuts and bolts that hold the finished project together. From hinges to assembly screws, each piece plays a role in the overall finished product. Cabinet hinges connect the door and frame and allow the door to open and close. These items are available in piano, post strap, ornamental and decorative, ball tip, and concealed hinge formats. The lengths of hinges, dependent on the style and use, range from 3/4 to 72 inches.
Furniture hinges are available in different styles to fit specific needs and design requirements. Easy to install, traditional-style hinges include self-closing, H-flush, bi-fold, flush wrap, and pivot styles made in brass, nickel, chrome, and copper. Most packages come in sets of two for convenience and ease of installation. Use traditional-style furniture hinges as finishing accents in a home’s design to connect trunk lids, folding tables, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, and any other piece that opens and closes.
European-style hinges are popular because of their concealed design and adjustment capabilities. European-style cabinet hinges allow two- to three-way adjustments. Use this feature to align cabinet doors with frames. Make adjustments in alignment to height, depth, and side for a precision fit and smooth opening and closing. Available in brushed and polished metal finishes, European-style units offer a wider range of motion than that of traditional-style models.
Butterfly hinges may be ideal for decorative pieces of furniture. They look good on cabinets and lightweight interior doors. Other specialty-type hinges include self-closing, self-opening, and soft-close units. These makes operating doors easier and quieter.
Use assembly hardware to ensure proper fit and connection of hinges to cabinet doors or furniture surfaces. Find the right equipment from screws and screw plugs to cable entry plugs and shelf supports at Rona.
