Hi guys,
I've just built a wardrobe and made shaker style doors from 25mm mdf. I'm really struggling to find any concealed hinges to fit. Has anyone got any ideas? I would like to avoid butt hinges if possible as I could do with some adjustability.

Any ideas would be great.

Might be better with these than butt hinges on MDF http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-X-SOFT-CLO ... 4873ddabae

Cheers for the reply.
I have purchased some very similar ones however when I set up a sample to gauge the distance. they won't clear the frame due to its thickness (25mm). I may be missing something?

You'll probably need those type hinges with a 40mm cup

I'm sure in the past others have been pointed in the Blum direction, pretty sure their site has some excellent technical help/advice.

edit
Yea just checked, Blum site has the products and then technical downloads for their products. Hinges have setting out measurements for different thickness doors.

Blum do one of the integral Blumotion consealed hinges specifically for thicker doors which is 95 degree opening

lay-on doors 71B9550
Inset doors 71B9750

I usually go with the 173H710N mounting plates for these, assuming 18mm carcase

EDIT pages 26 & 27 has details http://d1.blum.com/BEC003/clp0007-ep-15 ... of_$v2.pdf

Cheers for all your replies, I think I finally have my head around it!

I will get some ordered and post some pics when it's completed.
