Kitchen Cabinet Hinges

Melissa-KitchenNovember 6, 2012

Hello everyone!

I am in the planning stages of updating my oak 1990's kitchen. I am having the cabinets professionally painted white, installing a new backsplash and granite. My question is, I have exposed hinges that I am not a fan of. I see that most people match the hinges to the knobs. Has anyone used white hinges? I saw them at Home Depot and was thinking that they might blend into the cabinets a little and not scream "I'm a kitchen from 1991 that she is trying to look like it's updates!"

Any thoughts? Does anyone want to share their after pics of their oak cabinets repainted white?

Thanks in advance!

I have attached a picture of our kitchen in case anyone needs a before picture to envision what I am talking about.

That will look nice. And you need to take this to the kitchen forum. Oak cabinets are a common painting target! :)

Here is a link that might be useful:
