What hinge for angled kitchen cabinet door

Posted by babsintx (My Page) on

I live in an octagon house, so have lots of odd angles to deal with. We're renovating our kitchen and will have a cabinet with a 140 degree "bend" in it. We'd like to have a two-part door with a hinge in the middle so the door can fold when open to give more access to the wedge-shaped cabinet space behind it. (Of course, there will be regular hinges on one side of the door to hold it to the frame.) Any suggestions for what kind of hinge to use between the two parts of the door? We don't want this hinge to be visible when the door is closed. Thanks for your help.

Is this a concave or convex 140 degree "bend"? In either case, would it be possible to hinge the door(s) from each side rather than one side and the middle?

This hinge is for an acute angle cabinet:

This one is for hinging an inside corner door:

The link is to the index page for these special angle hinges at a seller I have used.
Blum makes similar stuff, but all of their retailers have infuriatingly complicated webpages/indices to access all that they actually have.
