What’s the Deal with Soft-Close Hinges?
Great technology lends for a great kitchen. As one of the leading kitchen manufacturers, it is imperative that we give you the latest information on what’s best for your kitchen cabinets, and our ideas on soft close hinges are no different. We highly recommend adding this installation to your kitchen remodeling project, as well as any other home or office renovation projects you have in mind.
1. Low and Slow
If you’ve never seen one in person before, a soft close hinge works essentially to force your cabinets to close more slowly and softly. Instead of an immediate snap into the cabinet frame after you push the door forward, the soft close hinge makes a quieter sound. This is especially great if you have a bustling, big family that doesn’t need more loud noises into the mix.
With soft close hinges, you’ll get the peace and quiet you deserve in your kitchen, making you less stressed and disorganized. This also helps if anyone in your family decides to get anything from the kitchen at night, as there won’t be any slamming of cabinet doors to disturb you from your sleep.
2. A More Valuable Home
Because soft close hinges are a commodity in the kitchen, they will not go unnoticed if you ever decide to sell your house. Kitchens are an essential part of every home, and it’s one of the main things in a house that homebuyers pay attention to.
You would probably never want a homebuyer to turn your house away just because they don’t approve of the kitchen, so don’t be afraid to invest in it! Kitchens are truly a deciding factor when it comes to value, so this addition may be the one thing that sets your kitchen apart from the rest.
3. Fancy Upgrade
Cabinetry in any part of your house can set the tone for each room, and this is no different in your kitchen. With soft close hinges, your cabinets will look and feel more luxurious and high-end because of its modern, visual appeal.
If you decide to hire an interior designer for your kitchen renovations, the designer will probably lean towards opting for soft close hinges, as they simply go better with today’s kitchen styles. This also adds value to your house and looks great to potential homebuyers in the future.
4. Keep the Kids Safe
As your kids grow up, they won’t stay out of the kitchen cabinets forever. Regular cabinet doors are prone to closing abruptly, which can hurt your little one’s fingers. Soft close hinges will give your kids enough time to move their hands out of the way before the door closes, making your kitchen a safe and sound place to be.
5. A Longer Cabinet Life
Perhaps one of the most significant advantages of installing soft close hinges in your kitchen is simply maintaining your cabinet’s good condition and prolonging its life. We highly value our wood cabinets at Stone International, and it would be a waste to handle them without care or concern.
With the gentleness of soft close hinges, you won’t have cracks or dents on the cabinet frames, meaning you won’t have to spend even more money in the future repairing or replacing your cabinets.
