Hidden Pantry door inswing design help needed

compman723August 14, 2012

Hi so we found some pictures on the internet where people have hidden walk in pantry doors that look like cabinets.

http://www.decorpad.com/photo.htm?photoId=94077&relatedPhotoId=94076&index=0

So we have designed something similiar to match our cabinets we are just lost on ideas for hinge and a latch if need be. Do they make insiwng hinges that could be soft close? Or does anyone have any ideas on a hinge that would work? Or a latch that pulls and snaps tight.

Kind of a weird install but thought you all would be up for the challenge!

Thanks!

It looks to me that the face frame on that cabinet covers the hinges so when it's closed, you can't tell it's a door. It just looks like the lower cabinets are inset like the other cabinets in the kitchen. I do wonder how they pull the door closed.

You could always contact Farinelli Construction and ask them.

Is there a reason you want it to be inswing? I 'd make it swing out, myself.

Cool visual. I haven't seen that one before.

I can't tell what's really going on there, but is it possible it's more like a restaurant door that would swing back on it's own?

I agree with Angie, make it outswing. You're most likely carrying stuff out of the pantry, much easier to push with your hands full than it is to pull on a handle.

Perhaps a pivot hinge (Harmon hinge) would work. I've included a link to an online supplier (no affiliation).

I found some cool options while looking for hardware for my crazy backsplash storage, which I still months away.

I think I can only post one link at a time, so...

Here is a link that might be useful: Door 1, watch the video

And the other door they have for a regular size door...

Here is a link that might be useful: Door 2, similar, but watch the video
