hinges for a linen closet i built myself


i recently built a basic cabinet using plywood and 1x2 and 1x3s for a face frame, ive come to learn that i need a specific type of cabinet hinge as i did construct a face frame but not sure whether i want a european style or more of a standard style hinge. id rather not have to drill into the cabinet door so if i go european style id like the mortise free tyoe but does anyone have input on which kind to buy?whats easier to instsll? any tips would be appreciated too!

What kind of doors are you installing? Inset? Offset? Overlay?

any styles that are adjustable, which make installation easier as you can be a little off then adjust it in the hinge.

The easiest ones to install are the ones you screw on the face of the cabinet and the back of the doors.
