New to the site, but have lurked for a while. I’m just getting into woodworking and went pretty big with my first project – all new kitchen cabinets! So far I am happy and am learning a lot. I have a degree in Industrial Engineering and Design and designed them all on CAD.

I need some help with the correct hinge for a corner upper cabinet that’s face is at 45 degrees. Its a full inset door with frame-less case. The sides on the door and on the case where the door fits are beveled at 22.5 degrees. When the door is closed you cannot see the case of the corner cabinet, but you can see the 18mm case of the neighboring cabinet. This is so I don’t end up with 36 mm thickness on either side of the corner cabinet and they match the rest. Do I need blind corner hinges for this or is there something else I should look at?

Thanks in advance everyone!!!

Probably you will need some variation of the guy in the center there…

Thanks DS, that looks like what I need. I can’t read the part number on the jpg, do you have a link to that pdf?

Nevermind, I found it. Looks like they specifically make ‘Mitered corner’ hinges.

I found this planning guide on the Blum website that may help others:
