bvesco, I don't know where you live, but if there's a somewhat large city near you, there might be a distributor of cabinet hardware who carries European hinges. If not, Google Euro hinges and make some calls and find one who will sell retail to you. Then you tell them the following info: Is it an overlay or inset door? If it is an overlay door, how far exactly does it overlap the face of the cabinet? Is the mounting plate mounted on the edge of a face frame, or is it mounted on the inside wall of the cabinet? (that's called "box mount") Approximately what degree of opening of the door does the hinge allow? (some will open about 110 degrees, some will go to 170 degrees, and some are in between those)
With that information, they would be able to choose the correct hinges and mounting plates for you. Those catalogs and numbers can be HUGELY difficult to decipher, I know. As for brands, Blum is good, Salice is good, Grass is okay.
