Hinges are an essential part of a cabinet. They are designed to last a long time but they may need adjustment based on usage. Homedepot shared an amazing tutorial on Pinterest. Here is the snapshot.
A few keys when adjusting hinges
- Use a manual screwdriver to adjust hinges, using an electric screwdriver could cause damage to the cabinet for beginners.
- Slowly turn the screws gently to adjust, same reason as the one above.
- Adjustment done to one door must be done to another for two-door cabinets and pantries.
- Make sure to test all adjustments when complete, if the door makes squeaking noise, the hinges may need to be loosened a bit or the door is hitting another object.
