    Hi guys,

    Going to be replacing some old kitchen cupboard doors with new ones

    using magnet smooth white doors which are heavy.

    as i'm only buying doors no hinges were supplied

    which ones do you recommend buying from our hosts or recommendations?

    i know blum are good but way to expensive for this job so any recommedation please?

    got 11 doors to hand so need 22 hinges!

    many thanks

    forgot to mention all doors are normal so open to i believe 110 degress is that right for a standard hinge

    many thanks

  3. I do not know the circumstances as to why you say Blum would be way to expensive for the Kitchen but I would always go for quality every time.

    The Kitchen hinge is the most used part of the Kitchen so needs to be of good quality even in a cheap Kitchen.

    If the Kitchen is worth buying replacement doors for and they are as heavy as you say then a quality hinge such as Blum has to be they way to go.

    You also get to fit a good quality hinge with easy to use adjustment which will go a little way to make the job easier.

    I've used SF hinges, only when I needed them in a hurry.

    I usually use Grass hinges from Hafele.

    If you get them from a trade counter, buy the most expensive 110 they have with a clip-on plate, but don't expect them to have enough!
