    The hinges are from IKEA.
    I was guessing they there massively over priced and I could get the EXACT same from elsewhere?

    They're £10 for the set

    @foxhole Thanks for the link... just wondering why so much?

    Ikea one includes a pusher... you push close and open.
    I've got a pack of them as well that I never got round to using.

    amazon £14 for a pack of 10.
    There might be cheaper, but just found that on the first page.

    I'm weary of buying from ebay or amazon for something... but hinges... I wouldn't hesitate to at least try.

    I'm guessing fittings will be universal?

    Normally... I'd choose screwfix or toolstation always...

    Let me know what you think.
    I'm guessing there might be a good reason why so much more expensive?

    The hole in the door is universal (35mm diameter x 11mm deep), the hole centres in the side of the cabinet are universal (32mm apart), but the cruciform mounting plates (the bits you screw to the side of the cabinet) vary depending on manufacturer and hinge type (e.g. easy adjust hinge base, standard hinge base, toolless clip on mounting, screw on mounting, etc) and there are also different fixing methods used for them such as standard screws, dowels and Euroform screws

    They are generally the trade's supplier of last resort - expensive on many products, poor stocking policy, some products of questionable quality, staff with little or no technical knowledge of their products, etc. Onlybworth using for a limited range of non-specialist items IMHO. If you were a kitchen fitter you probably would use a specialist supplier for items like hinges.
