Should door hinges be flush?

For one thing, flush hinges are quite light. They also do not require a recess to be cut in the door they are installed on, which butt hinges do, giving them a serious benefit. Because of this, they are a very good type of hinge to use on cupboard doors, and it is no surprise that you will often find them there.
