Has anyone installed hinges on a kitchen corner cabinet? I purchased these

and I’m not really sure how much space you would leave between the two door halves for the 90 degree hinge.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rut

Hi Rut—

I can help you here. The two doors meet at next to zero. You don’t want them to touch, but the space needn’t be large.

We found that using the face frame plates on the second door (the first door being the one that’s hinged to the cabinet) was easier than using the plates that mount in system holes.

It’s pretty easy to dummy this up with 3/4 scrap. It doesn’t need to be much wider than 4 inches, one hinge, to see if it’s going to sit right and that you have enough adjustability.

Kindly,

Lee
