The Correct Way to Adjust Cupboard Hinges With Springs iam going to be giving you pointers on how to adjust your kitchen or bathroom vanity cupboard doors that have spring hinges? To recognize if you have this type of hardware, look at the edge of your door. If the mechanism is grooved into the edge of the panel and you can see metal on the exterior, then you have a Y-5 brand "SPRING" hinge. The Y-5 was designed to allow adjustments to be made in three different directions. Tools Needed: • Electric or Cordless Drill • 1/32" Drill Bit • Driver Bit With a Phillips Head • Phillips Screwdriver Take a very detailed look at all of your cabinet doors, paying close attention to what needs to be moved in which direction in order for things to look more uniform. If you have doors that are rubbing together it may be because they were originally made too large. In such cases, it may be necessary to have the doors cut down a little in order for them to close properly. Making the Hinge Adjustments Open a cupboard door and you will notice that there are four screws, two on the cabinet member and two holding the hinge fast to the door. One screw on the cabinet frame is a lock-down or "set" screw that doesnt allow for any adjustment. The other one is inserted into an oblong hole to allow for movement. The same is true for the hinge plate that is fastened to the cupboard door. Only remove the lock-down screw, then loosen the adjustment screw just enough to allow for the door to me moved a little. Leave enough tension on the hinge so that it can be moved, but is not "flopping" loose. Re-tighten the adjustment screw and close the door to see how things look. Continue this process of opening, adjusting and closing the cupboard doors until you are satisfied with your accomplishments. The alterations you are making should be very "minute" on each kitchen or bathroom door. You should relocate two doors by moving them a little rather than moving one door a lot. • Important: If a door is not resting on the face-frame of the cupboard correctly, never try to twist it by using the force of your hands. Always move the hinge plate on the inside of the cupboard frame toward or away from you, either at the top or bottom of the door. Once you are satisfied with your achievements, it is time to drill new holes for the lock down or "set" screws to be repositioned. While drilling these new holes, you will have to adjust the angle of the drill so you miss the original hinge set screw hole. It may be necessary to insert a few wooden toothpicks into the old holes. Be very careful to NOT drill through the cupboard door and ruin the decorative face. You can place a piece of tape on the drill bit to help you gauge how far you should drill. If you know how to make a stop-block, this would be a worthwhile procedure to undertake. Final Steps Tighten the set screws down and you are almost finished. If you need to adjust the location of the cupboard doors a little, its OK to tap them with the palm of your hand. There will be a little tolerance in the hinges even though the set screws are locked in place. Just be sure to NOT use excessive force. A slight tap here or there is OK. I always recommend hiring a professional cabinet maker to adjust cupboard hinges. There are always tricks in every trade that make things go smoother. You can try to do-it-yourself (DYI), but it has been my experience that most people just get frustrated and break something. Never the less, if you are the handy-man type, give it a try.

Plastic shelves designed for cupboards are also ideal to use in the kitchen. A great way to use them is for small items such as cups that can be stored on and below the shelf to save space in the cupboard and yet be accessible. Put boxed food, such as all your pasta items on one shelf. This includes macaroni noodles, the 42 boxes of spaghetti you now have, macaroni and cheese as well as your tomato, Alfredo and any canned or jar spaghetti sauce. Depending on the size of your cupboard shelves, designate a shelf for breakfast foods, a shelf for canned goods such as vegetables and fruits and a shelf for juice drinks, mixes, tea bags, coffee and hot coco. Put snack foods and lunch foods that the kids can help themselves to on a lower shelf so they can easily reach them. Of course, you will want to have guidelines concerning the availability of these snacks for the children. Invest in a label maker and label the shelves with the items that go on them. Now, if your spouse or kids help put the groceries away, they know where to put them. If you have a lot of cupboard space you could go as far as making a label for the outside of each cupboard. This, of course, would depend on the style of your kitchen and would need to be attractive as well as useful. Keeping your kitchen cupboards organized will not only save you time when you are running late and need to make a quick lunch or dinner but will also help the babysitter find the juice boxes if you step out for the evening.
