I have never purchased Blum hinges before, but now I have 16 cabinet doors to mount and need some advice. My doors will be mounted to face frames and will have a 1/2” overlay, so just wondering which would be the best hinge to use? And if anyone knows a good distributer where they can be bought bulk, around 100 hinges to start.

Thank’s

Have you looked at the Blum online catalog? They’ve got charts that will direct you to the correct hinge for the application.

Compact 33 hinges and you can choose from their wraparound or edge plates for mounting. The wraparound is mainly for face frames and the edge plates are mainly for remodels where you run into problem areas.

I use the compact 38N 1/2 overlay. I get them on Amazon.
