Looking for Lift Door Cabinets - Besides IKEA


Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with any lift door style upper kitchen cabinets? We are looking for options besides the ones offered at Ikea (which my wife thinks are too poorly made). I have done some online searching, but am interested in anyone's actual experience.

Thanks,

Nick

I don't think I am supposed to give company names on this forum so type in "cabinet door lift hinge" on your search engine and check out the supply companies. Some will sell direct to customers. That is the answer if you are installing your own. As for opinion, I installed cabinets for a lady who demanded lift hinges on her cup and glass cabinets. She loves them! Reputable American made cabinet companies do make quality lift door cabinets. Shop around.

Do you want cabinet hinge companies or cabinet making companies?

Looking for Lift Door Cabinets - Besides IKEA


I've been reading other posts here and they are giving store and company names all the time so I would recommend Woodworker's Supply or Rockler as retail chains that have cabinet hinges. Some wholesale manufacturers are Blum, Knape & Vogt (KV), Amerock, Haefele, Belwith, Houch, and Mepla. You won't be able to buy directly so go to your yellow pages and look up cabinet supplies or hardware and see what you can find...check both wholesale and retail. The wholesale companies will tell you where you can buy retail. Zero right in and ask for cabinet door lift hinges. If you want cabinet manufacturers that make cabinets with lift hinges as an option...the company used on the job I mentioned was Schrock and they were purchased at Menards, a chain here in MN, WI and other upper midwest states, which is like Home Depot. That's the most I can help you

Can't remember the actual name brand, but I bought them from Louis & Company. This link shows the style that I've used, and they work great. Kinda tricky to use, but once installed are pretty fantastic.http://www.tradekey.com/index.html?a...141&id=1810817
