I have heard that soft close hinges are more expensive than regular hinges. So, are they really worth the extra cost?
Yes, as per my knowledge, soft close hinges are more expensive than regular ones. But when you consider the long durability of the material, I think, they are worth the extra few bucks.
They are noise-free and absorbs the shock of slamming the door, which happens especially when kids are using it. So, you can definitely go for it.
