cabinet hinge suggestions?


I'm building face-frame cabinets and the book I'm following (Udo Schmidt, Building Kitchen Cabinets) suggests:

Opening angle: 110 degrees
Crank: 0mm
Overlay: full
Style: clip on
Mounting plate: face-frame mounting plate for 1/2 inch overlay

Even with all of that info, I'm still having a hard time figuring out what to order---I can't believe the number of options. I'm thinking Blum, with the soft close feature would be best. Anyways, I'd appreciate specific suggestions (brand, model, etc.) and also places to order online---preferably, where you have had good experience in the past. Thanks.

I like the Blum soft close hinges. We were looking at showcase homes last weekend and a number of them used those hinges and they are nice, and surprisingly inexpensive. Perhaps someone else can tell you if they last or wear out quickly.

Yes, I've heard good things about these. I'm hoping to hear from somebody who has used them and can tell me exactly what I need for my situation, since there are so many different "models"...

I used the Blum clip on, partial overlay, self closing hinges. Whether you use the self closing or the soft close hinges you need to get the ,"offset" dimension correct. Especially if the doors have no middle rail or the doors are close together as in the full overlay scenario.
