Screw in Hinge vs. Doweled Hinge

Screw in Hinge vs. Doweled Hinge

Posted by Cabinetnow.com on 2019-04-30

When it comes to hinges on your cabinet door you have to think about the installation.  We offer a pre bore option on our doors that complements your hinge selection.  If you don't know what pre bore is you can click the link and find out. 

Screw in Hinges are the most cost effective type of installation when buying a hinge. The reason is that you aren't paying for the screws to install the hinge itself. You are only paying for the hinge, allowing you to select which type of screws you would like to use for your application.  If you choose to order the pre-bore option for your doors you would select the "Cup Only" option for screw in hinges.  If you have screw in hinges, but don't have the hardware to install we recommend the 606N screws found by clicking the link.

Doweled Hinges or "Press-in" Hinges are more expensive then your screw in hinges because they come with both the screws and dowels to easily pop in your hinge to your door.  If you choose to order the pre-bore option for your doors you would select the "Cup & Dowel" option for your doweled hinges. If you have a hinge that is a screw in, but your doors are set up for the doweled installation, you just need to purchase the Dowels and Screws to install found by clicking the links.
