HINGES You’ll also need to think about how visible your hinges will be – do you want them to be a major design feature, mounted directly to both the outside of the frame and the outside of the cabinet (known as a surface-mounted hinge)? Or would you prefer to take a more minimalistic approach, with the hinges virtually invisible from the outside when the cabinets are closed (known as a concealed hinge)? The current trend is toward hidden hinges, in keeping with the sleeker design sensibility. There is also a ‘soft close’ hinge option, which has been popular on drawers for several years and is now available for cupboards. “When you go to close the drawer, the mechanism sucks it back in, so you don’t have to worry about pushing all the way in; you get it three-quarters of the way in and the drawer has a spring that draws it in softly,” explains Mills. “Doors can also have a soft-close hinge system now that has a piston inside of it. You get it started and the piston slows it down so that it closes gently. It’s kind of slick.” Hinged “lift systems” like these Blum Aventos models provide silent and effortless opening and closing of wall cabinets.
