There are so many things that can motivate us to remodel our home. Big changes to the bathrooms and kitchen can have an amazing impact on the value and the speed in which a house sells. But if you do watch those improvement tv shows, they may not tell you how many small details go into pulling off “the look”.
You see flooring and tile, but if you really want it to look as good as the camera makes it seem—you’ll have to read between the lines.
One of those features are invisible hinges. Here’s why.
Traditional Hinges Aren’t Part of the Picture
Very rarely do designers and stylists plan to have hinges in their renderings. They are strictly function. No one has said, “those are some awesome hinges!”. We joke, but it’s true. If they aren’t part of the look and feel of the design, they shouldn’t be there.
Invisible hinges (like ours) make that happen. The doors and cabinets stay functional without getting in the way of the vision you laid out.
Clean Lines, Clean Lines, Clean Lines
While hinges aren’t part of your vision, clean lines probably are. Making kitchen cabinets seamlessly stream along the wall, or having doors that just mesh into the rest of the wall’s design are the little things that can bring a big “wow factor” to your home.
Remember, your friends or potential buyers will not ask you where the hinges are, or point out that they can’t see them (unless they work for SOSS). However, they will rave about the clean lines and how everything looks so smooth. You can’t create that look with a bulky hinge sticking out of those same doors and cabinets.
Secret Rooms Anyone?
Adding a secret room to your home is something we’ve talked about a lot. Not only is it super cool, but it’s hard to think of anything else that can get more of a reaction out of friends, neighbors, and buyers.
Whether it’s a safety feature, a secret place for valuable, or just a cool hangout for the family—secret rooms are awesome and can add some serious character to your home.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a secret if you could see the entrance. That’s where the invisible hinges come into play.
In the end, invisible hinges are better for style. They don’t show up unannounced to the visual party, but function in the way you need them. If you want to seriously step up the look and feel of your home during a remodel, choose SOSS hinges to help.
