New Kitchen Cabinet Hinges

After years of living with old hinges, I finally replaced them to match my door pulls!


When we completely overhauled our kitchen a couple years ago, the door hinges were the last thing on my mind.

I mean, the doors already came with hinges & replacement hinges are so expensive! We called it good enough & that was that…


Until it started bothering me.


You know those things that once you see them, they can’t be unseen?! Well, one day, the hinges did that to me. The old & busted hinges were all I could see every time I entered the kitchen! I’d walk in there & think, ‘I really should change these hinges out!’ all the time!


Finally, I checked out their selection of hinges when we were at Home Depot for unrelated reasons. We bought our door pulls there, so I figured they would have matching hinges. I was so excited that their hinges matched the door pulls perfectly! I immediately picked up the value packs! They’re still expensive, but it wouldn’t bother me anymore!

I couldn’t find them online, but here’s what the 10-pack looked like!

Replacing the door hinges was a tiny part of my plan. For the last 6 months or so, my entire kitchen itself has really been bothering me. When we remodeled our house about 3 years ago, I painted our cabinets, but they showed severe wear. I didn’t seal them well enough & the paint started to chip in places & the doors just looked icky overall. So the plan was to repaint my kitchen cabinets & apply the new hinges!

I’ll share our repainting adventure in another post, but here are the hinges for now! The pictures above show the old hinges & now the new hinges. I think it makes a big difference & I’m so happy that they match now!

PS: You can also get a sneak peek of our new cabinet color in the above photo with the old hinges! It’s not a big difference, but it was time to repaint!
