Do Hinges Matter

dancingqueengwFebruary 7, 2011

I am transitioning my hardware from brass to bronze and going from knobs to levers. I need to replace my door hinges and am trying to decide if I need to go with a high quality - like Baldwin - or if I can use the less expensive ones on ebay? It seems like they are $1 each or $12 each. I could not find any consumer type feedback. I need 21 hinges. Does it matter? They are 3.5 inch with the rounded radius. TIA

I would stay away from eBay for these items; I found from experience that their quality is questionable. As a start go to this web address to get a reference on what is available for your use and cost comparisons.

TIA, I did a google on bronze hinges, and found something called "oiled bronze" door hinges for around $5.00 a piece. They appeared to be rather dark but it was hard to tell. Are your door lever handles rather dark? My interior doors have two hinges so you might be talking $10 per door plus shipping.
