Hinges for custom, oversized, mirrored, medicine cabinet?

VictoriaElizabethMay 11, 2012

Anyone do a custom medicine cabinet?

We are putting in a very tall (50") recessed cabinet. The door will be flush not overlay. It will be trimmed out with wood, and have a mirrored insert. Kind of like this:

My husband is trying to decide what kind of hinge will work best. We can't use the euro style hinges, since there isn't enough room to drill a large hole in the back of the door, since the mirror will be in there.

The door isn't super heavy, but he wants to be sure it will be sturdy, since the mirror will weigh it down more than just a plain door.

Thanks! Victoria

Look at the hardwaresource.com for a heavy duty piano hinge, which is a hinge that can run the length of one side of the mirro.
