Butterfly hinges, also called surface mount cabinet hinges or dovetail hinges up, attach to the outside of cabinet doors so the entirety of the hinge is visible when the door is closed. Butterfly hinges are so named because of their ornamental, mirror-image leaves, or wings. Butterfly hinges have been used on everything from cabinets to shutters to trunk – pretty much any application with a door or lid—to provide decorative open and close functionality.
Butterfly hinges have been widely used since the late 19th century, with evidence of existence as far back as medieval England. With the advent of hidden cabinet hinge design in the early 20th century, butterfly cabinet hinge application popularity declined for several decades before enjoying a resurgence in use on today’s kitchen cabinets, especially among homeowners seeking a pop of vintage decoration and style.
