    Hi All,

    Purchased a bathroom cupboard from ikea but didnt like the doors so bought some different ones thinking they would be compatible!!!

    They are not!! Hinges still similar in style/principle but size is the problem and when the hinges are in situ on the door they dont line up with the holes on the frame.

    As the hinge fits the door correctly I see that the easiest solution is to drill more holes (2 for each hinge) on the frame.

    My question is what measurements? The hinges have no details. How far into the frame??


    Just to add they are blum 125 hinges if this helps. I have looked on their website but its all gobbledy gook :oops:

    Take a look at this thread elsewhere which has the drilling centres you need (having put it up once, why spend the time to repeat the exercise?). Depth? Basically as long as the screws are, but probably circa 10/12mm

    The cupboard is brand new and I have never put the coordinating door on.

    I meant how far in from the outside of the frame to place the mount.

    But no worries I have managed to find what I am looking for!!

    Thanks
