In the 1970’s, it was shag carpet and yellow or brown paint. In the eighties, people were all about cold black and white. Not to mention those glass blocks were everywhere. But where are those timely aesthetics now?
At best, in the history books. At worst, they’re getting torn down and replaced within a few years.
When we think about our homes and properties and wanting them to last, there are two things to consider.
- Quality that will last as long as the foundation.
- Designs that are always in style.
If you can account for these two things in your remodel or new build, chances are that your kids may want it as an inheritance, or it will be an easier sell without much staging cost involved.
You may be thinking, “What does that have to do with invisible hinges?” Good question. If you’d give us a few moments, we’ll give you a few reasons.
Invisible Hinges for Quality and Design
Invisible Hinges Don’t Go Out of Style
You know what happens when you look at those glass blocks in your bathroom with regret and disdain? You must live with them or pay to fix it.
The same is true with hinges. Right now, brushed nickel is in, but the “farmhouse” look is coming in fast. What about mid-century modern? Could be on the horizon. These designs have certain hinges that complete “the look”, but with invisible hinges, there is no inherent look—only what they create.
What is it they create? Clean lines.
Which, as far as we can tell, have never went out of style. To our knowledge, no one has walked into a room and said, “I hate it. Where are all the hinges!”. We could be wrong, but mostly people are happy with everything looking so smooth.
The look is timeless and if you want to change things up, the hinges will adapt way better than those big, black farmhouse hinges.
Good Invisible Hinges Don’t Require Maintenance or Repair
Ever heard something like, “Oh, the house is settling and the doors just don’t open right anymore.”?
Yep. It’s a common myth. We say myth, because 9 times out of 10—the problem isn’t the house “settling”. It’s the hinges. Some people even buy adjustable hinges to plan ahead for this myth.
Warning: Please don’t buy adjustable hinges. They are way more trouble than they’re worth.
If you really want the doors and cabinets of your home to function well with limited maintenance, use quality hinges. If you want them to last for a lifetime, use SOSS invisible hinges. Our hinges are made from nice, weighty metal and constructed to keep doors hung right for decades. No settling.
