Rockler's Guide to Choosing a Concealed Hinge

Note: If you are constructing new cabinets, Rockler strongly recommends that you choose your door hardware for your cabinet and door design before you begin construction.

Concealed Hinge CabinetWhat is a Concealed Hinge?
Concealed Hinges are hinges that are hidden from view and allow you to see only the surface of the door. They are sometimes called “European-style” hinges and offer a clean design look.

Why choose a concealed hinge?
Concealed hinges offer easier door adjustment to compensate for slight imperfections in cabinet construction. Another benefit is the ability to take a door on or off without removing the hardware.
