Hi, I have an amoire that presently has 2 front doors which open via standard hinges to the right and left. Inside the unit are shelves that I want to keep in their present location. I have seen the type of hinges that allow doors to be open and slide inside the cabinet but are there higes that allow the doors to open and slide OUTSIDE the cabinet? I cannot use 270 degree hinges as there are walls to the left and right of the unit and there would not be enough space. If someone has an idea for a hinge that could be used in this application please let me know and tell me where it can be found. Thanks, C.

Never heard of them but doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Have you thought about making them Bi-fold if the design of the doors would allow it.

Have your say...
