You may have seen my recent kitchen cabinet makeover. This desperately needed paint job took my cabinets up a notch visually, but when using them, they still felt like the same old cabinets. You know, when you close the door and hear, “bang, bounce, boom, boom”?
After going through the trouble to make them look new, I wanted them to feel new too. So I began searching for the best and most cost effective way to turn my old, loud doors into soft close doors.
I considered changing the hinges, but quickly realized that would be a total pain in the tush and quite pricy. A two pack of soft close hinges are around $10+ each. Times that by the gazillion I needed and the price was quite high. After a some more research I came across these Blumotion Soft Close Hinge Adapters.
With hundreds of positive reviews, and an average cost of around $3.50 per door, I decided to give them a try. When they arrived, I put them up in just 20 minutes – yes the WHOLE kitchen! It was SO simple! The only additional cost was a small power drill, as most regular sized power drills are too large to get into the small space needed to install these. This little Black and Decker Drill did the trick, and didn’t break the bank at $27. (And how cute is it?!)
If you’re unsure if you can do this, I made a video to show you just how stinkin’ easy it it.
Now my cabinets not only look brand new, they feel new too. As excited as I was to see the results of painting the cabinets, I was equally excited to have quiet, soft closing cabinets! I highly recommend this quick, easy and cheap upgrade!
PS – They’ve been in action for a few months now and I’ve had no problems with them!
