Buy right hinge for cabinet with 4 different hinges
2 Attachment(s)
I am re-finishing and repairing some kitchen cabinets. All is well except for these doors which are for a ~60 inch opening on the island side of the kitchen. When I bought this house this cabinet had 4 differnt hinges with no real markings on them that I could use to determine model number. The cabinet holds a washer and dryer(see the bottom left in second picture. The doors are two sets of double doors with a butt hinges joining the doors. The doors hit so I am looking to increase the overlay slightly.

I have never seen hinges that 'curve around' like this. Is that something I need to consider when buying new hinges. These euro hinges are fairly adjustable but was thinking if I needed a bit more I could recess the hinges a bit in to the framing and if needed cut back the face trim a bit. But want to start off by ordering the best possible hinge.

Any advice on where to start in picking a proper hinge to clean this up.

Probably the reason you have 4 different hinges is because people have changed them out over the years. With European hinges most are interchangeable. The screw holes may not match exactly but the main thing you need to know is how much the door overlaps the opening. Lets say the door is 1" wider than the opening all you would need is 1/2 overlay hinges, meaning the door overlaps the opening 1/2" Usually if the door is 1 1/2" larger than the open it's called full overlay. What you have shown is a hinge with a box type backplate. It would be safer to purchase a different brand with a faceplate backplate. The hinges are in two separate pieces sometimes sold separately.

That back plate should be alright. I was just worried you might purchase a hinge that mounted further back in the cabinet like this one. A lot of cabinets the sides of the cabinet are just 3/4" plywood with veneer on the face of it instead of a faceframe like you have. The type hinge I have pictured is for that type cabinet. This is why some suppliers sell the hinges and back plates separately.
