Blum Hinge Pattern – Hinge Drilling for your Cabinet Doors

We guarantee hinge drilling to fit ONLY if you purchase your Hinges from us. The reason for this is to stop any problems associated with European Hinges. These hinges vary in depth, swing and overlay to name a few. Placement of the drilled hole in most cases is unique to that particular hinge.

All our Hinges conform to the Blum Hinge Pattern and that is the only hinge boring pattern we offer.

The Blum Hinge Pattern consists of two 8mm holes and one center 35mm hole as seen in this photo (WE call that "B-1" boring).
You may substitute two small 3 /32" pilot holes (for screws) instead of the 8mm holes (We call that "B-2" Boring). They will still be mounted in the same spot.
We do NOT offer the hinge boring with ONLY the 35mm center hole. It will either have the 8mm dowel holes, or the small pilot holes for screws.

In order to correctly identify the hinge side, face the door from the front; if the handle is on the right, the hinges go on the left so you would select “Drill Left Side” when you add your doors to the quote.
