Guys, need some help with choosing euro hinges. I have never worked with them before so I am a little confused here.
What I have is a framed faced cabinet. The frame is 1.5 inches wide. The door is going to sit flush over the frame.
Where I am mostly confused is where everyone says I need a full overlay hinge for face framed cabinet. But then I get even more options with no explanation. The overlays are different. They range from 1/2” to 1 7/16”. Am I supposed to pick a an overlay hinge that matches the width of the face frame? Or does this mean the amount of the frame that is covered after the door is built would be the overlay dimensions? For example: If the door extends over the frame a half inch on all sides that would be a half inch overlay?
Can someone dumb it down for a dummy?
