    Hey all,

    We have an L shaped stair case and at then end is currently a small door for storage. I`m wanting to do something like this for shoe storage (without the seat). And wondering where I can get thos kind of rotating hinges from to build a cabinet inside the stairs.
    Any ideas? thanks

    the hinge at the bottom of those is just a simple pivot, the front panel just hinges down on them. The door pivots on the cabinet sides.

    The curved thing you can see is a plastic "side" to prevent things falling off the tilting shelf.

    The factory-made ones have a plastic ferrule pressed into a hole drilled in the side so the hinge pin can pivot smoothly. They're actually quite shoddy. But the idea is clever and they take up little room in a narrow hall where you have to walk past, I think the cabinet is only about 250mm deep.

    I haven't seen a pivot hinge like that at modest price, but if you wanted to make such a cab, you could hinge the door off the floor of the cabinet with an ordinary cabinet door hinge. https://www.ironmongerydirect.co.uk/search?SearchText=butt+hinge+cabinet The loading is very low.

    This pivot would do the job if you made the "shelf" with a rigid side. https://www.ironmongerydirect.co.uk/product/concealed-pivot-hinge-50x19mm-self-colour-brass-680330 and it looks like they lift out.

    Under the stairs you don't need such a narrow cabinet, I think you'd do better with simple shelves.

    Ok thanks. This is what we have now , minus the door after refurbishment. So I'd like to put some shoe storage which is why I thought of that kind of storage.
    Any ideas what I could do? There aren't any sides near the opening so think drawers are out of the question.
