Every time a door slams shut in your kitchen you wince just a little, but if you want soft-close cabinets you have to redo your kitchen, right?  Blum created Blumotion compact soft-close adapters for their own hinges, but there’s nothing stopping you from using them with your existing hardware.

Inside the adapter a fluid dampening system regulates the speed at which the door moves after coming into contact with it.  The adapter can adjust to your door’s size and weight, and you can control how fast the door closes.  An integrated safety feature also protects the hinges if you slam the door.

You’ll pay $4 to $5 for a single adapter — that’s much cheaper than a kitchen remodel or even just replacing your hardware.

    I bought one of these to try them out. Installation could not be easier and they work great on my cabinet doors. Found them for $3.10 so I am doing all my cabinets now for $60 in total. Pretty good deal for something that would have been really expensive if bought with the kitchen originally.
