Hello,

We recently bought a house, and have been redoing the kitchen. The kitchen was completely done in knotty pine paneling, and instead of ripping it all out and putting up all new cabinets, drywall, etc., we decided to paint the paneling for now, and rip everything out in a couple of years.

This leads to my problem.

The cabinet door hardware were the old black iron really big pieces. With everything painted now, and looking much more country instead of cabin-y, we needed to get new hardware for them. While it was easy to find the pulls, the hinges have proven to be much more difficult. We've bought hinges that seemed to be able to work, Belwith 3/8" offset antique brass hinges, however, they aren't offset enough for the doors. We need 1/2" offset hinges, and I can't find them anywhere!

Any ideas on either what I can do, or where I can find these mystical hinges?

Here's an online store that has a wide selection.......perhaps this is the style you need or they have additional sizes/styles.......

We are just now finding ourselves in the exact situation with the cabinet hinges. I have measured many times and seem to need 1/2" offset hinges but am finding it very difficult to find that measurement. 3/8" are abundant but that will simply not fit onto the exterior of the doors. I was wondering the same thing, do 1/2" surface mount offset hinges exist?

Other than the link in the only other post, did you ever get any type of resolution?

JVS,

What we ended up doing was getting a flush hinge (similar to this: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=229480-53458-HH3501-AB&lpage=none), and bending it with pliers.

We just couldn't find the offset we needed without spending an arm and a leg, and had to make them ourselves.

I stumbled across this post. I work for Atlantic Pacific Industries and they are the last company left that still makes these hinges.

They make a full line of 1/2", 5/8", and 3/4" offset hinges. If you want to find a store near you that stocks them go to

Just wanted to let everyone know that Hardware Source (hardwaresource.com) has 1/2 inset hinges. I got here by searching for the same thing myself. Here is just one example:

I need 1/2" offset (or lip) and 3/8 inset and I really want self closing. It doesn't look like I am going to find them but if anyone has found them please post it here.
