How to Install Door Hinges

Traditional cabinet hinges are usually used for decorative purposes. This is because a traditional hinge is mounted on top of the cabinet doorand is visible (or partially visible) when the door is closed.These hinges are easier to install than European hinges, but they lack their versatility.

1. Mark the Door and Place the Hinges

Use a pencil and tape measure to mark the areas of the door where you want to install the hinges. Once the marks are in place, lay down the hinges on those marks so they are flush against the inside and outside of the cabinet.


2. Adjust the Spacing Between the Hinges

Make sure the space between the two (or three) hinges placed on the cabinet and the distance between the hinges and the edge of the cabinet is even. This step is crucial in ensuring the proper functioning of your cabinet door. Make sure to write the measurements down so you can replicate them for other similar doors.


3. Tape the Hinges in Place

Use painter’s tape to tape the top end of the hinges so they stay wrapped around the edge of the cabinet as you attach the screws.


4. Drive Screws on the Cabinet-Side of the Hinge

Use a power drill to install screws to the cabinet-side of the hinge. Make sure the screws go all the way into the door.


5. Glue the Door to the Hinge

Now flip the door side of the hinge on top of the screwed-in cabinet side and add a line of hot glue on the top. Place the cabinet door on top of the screw, adjust to align the door, and then keep it in place till the glue dries.


6. Drive Screws on the Door-Side of the Hinge

Open the door and power drill screws into the door-side of the hinge. Open and close the door a few times to check its alignment, and you’re done.
