Remove the Old Hinge Replace with the Same Type of Hinge Replace with a Different Type of Hinge Community Q&A Replacing cabinet hinges can instantly update a drab set of cabinets.
A wide variety of hinges are available online or at your local home improvement store.
Concealed hinges can go in face-frame or frameless cabinets and on any door type—including full overlay, partial overlay, or inset—as long as the doors are at least ½ inch thick.
The hinges I'm using are for frameless cabinets with inset doors.
At one point I considered trying to update the cabinets with more modern hidden hinges, but after some research I realized that isn’t possible for all cabinet styles and can also be pretty costly. I am taking on more and more cabinet refresh projects (for hire), and still never tire of the transformations.My latest project is an oak, galley style kitchen, and I’m digging deeper into ideas to make these older kitchens look more modern.I had already chosen polished nickel hardware (which I will share more about soon), so my hinges needed to coordinate.I decided to use Rub n Buff to give them a much-needed update.
