I have all my kitchen cabinet doors hung on mortised butt hinges and am trying to figure out the best catch.
What do you guys prefer? Just the simple magnet catches? The ball/spring catch?

I’ve seen a very nice brass magnet catch but I can’t find it online. It was very good looking compared to all the plastic ones. Any ideas?

I like magnetic push catches, I like watching people trying to figure out how to open a door with no Handel :)
