Soft-Close Cabinet Hinges

I love doing hardware upgrades. Not the new installs where you need to make sure your router and drill jigs are carefully planned and perfectly measured. But the hardware upgrades where you just swap something out. These are some of the easiest home improvements to do, require minimal tools as well as very little experience, and can be done at your own pace without unsettling your home.

Now, hardware may not transform a room, especially hinges that are hidden, but they do help complete a room, provide daily usefulness, and give you that feel-good sense of accomplishment with little effort involved.

There is a little homework involved in choosing the correct cabinet hinge upgrade, especially for some of the brands with large product lines. The door style, door thickness and hinge type all play a role. Once all this information is sorted out you should hopefully be able to find a soft-close hinge that is a direct retrofit to the existing hinge, or just choose one of the many independent dampers and keep your current hinges.

What are the different cabinet hinges?

The most common categories of cabinet hinges will be concealed, semi-concealed and surface-mount.

A concealed – often referred to as European – style of hinge will be completely internal so there is no visible part of the hinge when the door is closed.

These hidden hinge installs are achieved by using a forstner bit to bore a hole in the door for the hinge cup. Then depending on if you have a a frame or frameless cabinet, there will be several variations of mounting plates to attach the other end of the hinge to the cabinet enclosure.

There is some consistency among all brands of concealed hinges, but there’s also variations depending on the application. Most of the following brands listed are very common, and most likely already used in most existing applications as a basic self-close hinge. Now you just need to cross-reference the soft-close version.

For a direct retrofit you’ll need to know some basic information. A 35mm hinge cup bore diameter is standard, but bore depth and pattern vary. Common boring patterns range from 42-48mm.

Boring patterns for concealed cabinet hinges

Both the semi-concealed and surface-mount hinges will have a portion of the hinge exposed when the cabinet door is closed. Neither hinge style has an integrated soft-close option for decorative cabinet use, but you can use any of the standalone soft-close dampers mentioned in this article.

The various brands and types of soft-close cabinet hinges and dampers.

When I chose to upgrade our cabinets and drawers to incorporate the soft-close feature, I had no idea how complex the model list of hinges could be. At least I had a bit of starting point with the existing Blum self-close concealed hinges. The bad news? I learned that the existing Blum concealed hinges were older models that couldn’t accept the BLUMOTION 973A add-on, I needed to replace all the hinges with the newer Blum CLIP top versions where I wanted a soft-close damper. What was the difference? The existing Blum hinges had an oval cutout in the hinge arm, whereas the latest CLIP top models have a rectangular cutout in the hinge arm allowing the BLUMOTION 973A mounting prongs to attach.

Key Points:

  • All concealed hinges have an industry standard self-close / snap-shut feature, the soft-close feature just slows and dampens this effect.
  • Each manufacturer’s catalog provides guidelines on the number of soft-close needed based on weight and number of hinges per door.
  • If you have existing basic self-close concealed hinges and you want to go all out with upgrading to the premier line of soft-close hinges of the same manufacturer, the bore pattern may remain the same, but there’s a chance you’ll have to drill the hinge cup holes deeper. This will require the proper sized forstner bit, usually 3/8″ (35mm), and mounting hole bit.

Blum refers to their soft-close system as BLUMOTION, which spans a wide range of products, so prepare yourself for a lot of reading and decision making.

Visit Blum’s interactive microsite’s for further product information regarding CLIP top BLUMOTION and COMPACT BLUMOTION.

CLIP top BLUMOTION Built-in Yes
COMPACT BLUMOTION Built-in Yes

If you decide to install these hinges throughout, you’ll also get the privilege of a handy fine-tune adjustment feature, the BLUMOTION function can be turned on / off with an activation switch so you can accommodate different weights of doors. But the soft-close feature doesn’t have variable adjustments like some of the other soft-close hinge systems. Once the soft-close is turned of you’ll be left with a standard self-close hinge.

Key Points:

  • CLIP top BLUMOTION works with all current CLIP mounting plates, which includes versions for face frame and frameless cabinets.
  • If replacing a Blum CLIP top self-close hinge, the boring pattern for the hinge cup remains unchanged for CLIP top BLUMOTION, however, a 13mm boring depth is required for all three holes.
  • CLIP top BLUMOTION enables three-dimensional adjustment for fine tuning door alignment.
  • Hinge cup cover cap and hinge arm cover caps are sold separately.

Key Points:

  • Blum CLIP top hinges may already be used for your concealed cabinet hinges. You just need to add the 973A damper for a very economical and simple soft-close upgrade.
  • The average medium to heavy door will only need one hinge to have the BLUMOTION 973A add-on.
  • BLUMOTION 973A is NOT adjustable. Small and lightweight doors will have to remain free-swinging as they’re not heavy enough to push the 973A to a closed position.

  • Hinge cup cover cap and hinge arm cover caps are sold separately.

Naturally dry your clothes indoors with these helpful products

Looking to save money and energy? Don’t have the outdoor space for clothes drying? Look to these great indoor clothes drying solutions.

Updated

on

Leifheit Indoor Clothes Dryers

Growing up in a small town, having a outdoor clotheslineImage courtesy of Breezecatcher Clotheslines was very common. I personally was never a fan of line dried clothes, especially the cold weather months, where your clothes were stiff as a board. But some people like the smell of air dried clothes, and the primary reason that I knew of…saving money…can still very much apply.

Fast forward to my current environment; I’m not sure the last time I saw an outdoor clothesline, but even in our household there is a need for a certain amount of line drying, especially for delicate clothing. Nobody wants to face a household member whose clothing you shrunk in the dryer!

In steps the many great indoor drying products that can offer a much better solution to hanging your clothes over the tub, shower stall, railing, etc. Plus, with many of the products you’re going to get much more drying space, sometimes with the capability to hang a full load of clothes.

Indoor Clotheslines

Considering this is a DIY site, one could buy some eye lag screws, along with a clothesline set – or rope equivalent, and create your own indoor clothesline between two walls.

Create a simple DIY clothlines with eye lag screws and rope

The Buntline Hitch is a wonderful – small profile – trusty knot for securing rope to an eyelet. But in order to have a tight line, you kind of need an adjustable tightener knot on the other end, such as a Tautline Hitch.
NetKnots.com

However, I think the many retractable indoor clothesline products created by the following are better alternatives, especially if aesthetics are a primary concern.

FEATURED Brabantia Pull-out Clothesline
The Brabantia brand has a long history in trying to provide quality products and their pull-out clothesline is a convincing example of their mission. All their laundry products are “manufactured from corrosion resistant materials”.

Maximize your air drying capabilities with 5 rows of cothesline, which extend to 165″ in length, providing 22m / 72ft total drying area. Yet, when not in use and retracted, you’re left with a compact footprint.

Note: Dimensions listed throughout the web are very inconsistent, so we contacted Brabantia direct for some definitive clarification, and were promptly replied to by a representative.

I have the indoor pull out dryer here in the office & the sizes are…

  • LENGTH = 480mm / 18.9″
  • DEPTH = 80mm / 3.15″
  • HEIGHT = 76mm / 3.0″

The side dial locks and unlocks the clothesline, while providing a means for line tension adjustment too.

Available in stainless (385766), or white (385728).

Brabantia 385766 Indoor Pull-Out Clothes Line
Brabantia 385766 Indoor Pull-Out Clothes Line Brabantia 385728 Indoor Pull-Out Clothes Line

MORE CHOICES…
Look to Amazon for the many retractable clotheslines on the market. Some closely replicate the design of the Brabantia Pull-out Clothesline, while others have their own indoor clothesline representation.

Maybe you just want a simple and economical single line clothes dryer that can be mounted inside your shower stall. Plenty of those to choose from.

Need more clothesline drying space? There are several brands that took a cue from the hose reel and cord reel market, providing larger clothesline units that can span 20+ feet.

EXAMPLE 1 VDOMUS Retractable Indoor Clothesline

  • Adjustable fiber line extends up to a long range: up to 8.2 Feets.
  • Lock Button: It is very easy to retract if needed to move the line back to its case for easy storage.
  • Made of Premium Solid 18/10 stainless steel construction with Copper PULL HEAD and accessories

VDOMUS retractable indoor clothesline

EXAMPLE 2 Household Essentials Single Line Retractable Clothes Dryer

  • High-impact plastic housing.
  • Swivel wall bracket.
  • Stainless-steel inner spring; line retracts when not in use.
  • Single-line clothes dryer provides up to 40 feet of linear drying space.

Household Essentials 40 ft Single Line Retractable Clothesline

Laundry Drying Racks

The multitude of clothes drying racks almost seems endless. Between the many brands and designs, the deciding process can be exhausting. Luckily there are some top brands and top ratings to make the decision a little easier.

The freestanding racks have the ability to hang a good deal of clothes for drying, and when not in use, you’ll find that these racks fold to a slim size. This allows them to be stored in a closet, between your washing machine and wall, or any other small space where they aren’t out in the open.

FEATURED Leifheit
A German based company with a deep history in making innovative and high quality products focusing on household cleaning and care. With the most extensive line of dryers available; you’ll find wall-mounted, hanging, tub mount, and freestanding models in various configurations.

Leifheit Pegasus Tower Dryer 200 Deluxe
Leifheit Pegasus Tower Dryer 200 Deluxe Leifheit indoor wall dryer teleclip 42 Leifheit Hanging Dryer Quartett 40 Extendable Aluminium Leifheit Standing Dryer Classic 250 Flex Leifheit Pegasus Bathtub Dryer 190

MORE CHOICES…
There are several local and online retailers that carry a modest selection of indoor drying racks, but most of them also sell on Amazon, which still has the largest inventory by far.

EXAMPLE 1 Ballard Design Bathroom Collections

Outfitting a whole room with one of the collections from Ballard may be a very appealing possibility, but even if you just choose one of their wood drying racks, you’ll be creating a laundry room that feels very homelike, opposed to industrial and sterile.

Ballard Design indoor laundry wood drying racks

EXAMPLE 2 Brabantia Wallfix

The Wallfix wall-mount clothes dryer more resembles an outdoor clothesline and may not be the best alternative to install in a bathroom or laundry room, but for people with a balcony or basement, this may be the perfect product that allows you to let the drying lines down temporarily, and then fold neatly away when not in use.

5 solutions for ironing board storage

Optimize your laundry space, while adding efficiency at the same time.

Updated

on

Ironing board storage solutions

The birth and rise of the ironing board, like so many products, has an interesting backstory. But for a person like me who’s main focus is an organized and clutter-free home, my attention is more interested in a storage solution that hides these bulky – yet much needed – objects the best way possible.

If you have the means and money, the cabinet or drawer style board organizers are very cool and appealing. For the more budget minded crowd, the very familiar wall-mount bracket organizers can be very effective, while storing your iron too.

Wall-Mount Ironing Hanger Organizer

These organizers can be very economical and readily available at most local retail stores, including hardware stores. They attach with wall anchors, which may be included.

When wanting a full-size ironing board, these hangers may be your best option for storage, compared to the built-in units, which have a smaller board.

Brands Include: Brabantia, Spectrum Basket, Sunbeam, Rayen

Brabantia wall-mount iron and ironing board organizer
Brabantia wall-mount iron and ironing board organizer Spectrum wall-mount single basket with ironing board holder Sunbeam wall-mount iron and ironing board organizer Rayen 2100.10 Iron Holder

Over-the-Door Ironing Organizers and Holders

Adding iron and ironing board storage doesn’t get any easier than this. No tools required! Plus, there is no permanent modifications to your walls.

The downside? I don’t like the over-the-door hanger showing on the opposite side of the door.

Brands Include: ClosetMaid, Household Essentials Over-the-Door Board, Polder, Spectrum, Rayen (wall-mount model comes with over-the-door hooks)

Polder Over-the-Door iron storage
Polder Over-the-Door iron storage Spectrum Over-the-Door iron storage Rayen 2100.10 Over-the-Door Iron Holder

Built-in and Wall Ironing Cabinets

Get a full functioning ironing center that either mounts to the surface of your wall, or is recessed into the wall for a slimmer and cleaner look.

Designs vary, which may include a ironing board storage cabinet only, or have the ability to store an ironing board, iron, ironing accessories, along with a power strip to have close proximity power outlets for user-friendliness. Note: The power strip will need to be properly wired to a nearby outlet or junction box.

Brands Include: Hide-Away, Household Essentials StowAway® In-Wall Ironing Board, IRON-A-WAY

Household Essentials StowAway In-Wall Ironing Board

Drawer Ironing Board Storage

Have the convenience of an ironing board stored right in the space of your lower laundry or bath cabinet drawer.

The mid-size ironing board measures roughly 37-38″ long, but folds in the middle, allowing it to store inside a common cabinet depth.

Brands Include: Asko HiddenHelper™ Ironing Board HI115, Häfele, Rev-A-Shelf, Vauth-Sagel

Asko Hiddenhelper Hi115 Ironing Board
Asko Hiddenhelper Hi115 Ironing Board Rev-A-Shelf drawer ironing board storage

Creative Ironing Organizers and Holders

If none of the above products are an ideal solution, there are several organizer hooks, hardware, and furniture that can be used to hang an ironing board as well as store your iron and the needed laundry accessories.

Example 1
Mounting 2 individual coat hooks can work as an ironing board holder. Style and finish is abundant to meet any preference.

If wanting storage for the iron, bottles, etc., purchase a shelf and coat rack combination. Again these can be found in several styles and finishes.

Example 2
Wall panels can be cut to size, or multiplied for a modular design. There are an array of hooks, baskets, cabinets, and accessories to create a unique and optimized storage solution.

Products Include: Gladiator, storeWALL
