I am trying to figure out which hinge to buy for a unique door/cabinet situation. I built a large in-wall medicine cabinet for our new bathroom remodel. I am then going to order a cabinet door (www.barkerdoor.com) and add it to the cabinet. The cabinet has 1/2 inch by 3 inch wood trim around it – flat against the wall. However, I installed this trim “stepped back” from the edge of the cabinet by 1/4 inch. I am finding that hinges are made for either face-frame cabinets, where the hinge wraps around the face frame of the cabinet, or…. the hinges are made for a simple box cabinet with no face frame, where they are installed flat against the side of the cabinet. In this last scenario – there is a 90 degree angle between the cabinet door and the side of the cabinet. In MY situation, I have a “step back” edge, and not just a simple 90 degree edge. Does anyone understand hinges and if there is something to work with my stepped back edge of my cabinet? My alternative is to remove the trim and make it flush with the edge of the cabinet. I would rather find the right hinge and not redo the trim. See photo. Hopefully that will make sense. Thanks for your help. Oh, I forgot to add — I would like the finished cabinet door to overlay the trim by 1/2 inch all the way around.
