I need to find a hinge which will attach a cover panel straight to a wall, so that the side of the door is right against the wall and the door can still open flat 90 degrees. The problem I am having at the moment is that the door only opens to about 45 degrees before the side of the door presses against the wall, preventing it from opening. Is there a hinge will bring the door outwards, away from the wall, before opening 90 degrees, so that the door can openly freely, right back to the wall? Please help!!!

The hinge you require is called a parliment hinge.
This allows the door to be folded flat to the wall.
Most diy outlets do not stock these hinges, so try local builders merchants.
Good luck.

You can also use a special type of kitchen unit hinge that will open to around 180 degrees.It sort of telescopes out as it opens and may be useful.

I'd find that useful, any idea what its called or where I might go to get one?

My problem is a bit more difficult because I'd also like to have a window on each side of my door with a window ledge.

I have had a bit of a browse and this is the closest thing I can find for you.

http://www.dks-online.co.uk/acatalog/hinge_fittigs.html

I think the 165 Clip on Hinge about half way down the page is the most suitable.

You could also try a visit to your local Kitchen supplier and ask them for the Telescoping hinges. They are mostly used on the Corner cupboards so you can get full access inside with the door opening more than a standard hinge.Hope this was some help to you.

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware (www.rockler.com) in the USA carries these European hinges by Blum that seem to fit your needs. They are frameless hinges with a lifetime warranty. They have hinges of every imaginable type, including 60-degree bi-fold hinges, 90-degree "mini_ hinges, 95-degree "thick door" hinges, 120-degree, 165-degree, etc. Their "greatest opening capacity" hinge is a 170-degree hinge that can be adjusted in 3 directions -- side-to-side, depth, and height -- AFTER installation. Rockler also sells special drill jigs that enable you to conceal the hinges completely by drilling cup holes. I bet these hinges are available in the UK, since they are, I believe, of European manufacture. Good luck! icon_wink.gif
