European (Cabinet) Hinges

 

European Hinges are great for casement windows where a clean, no hinge look is desired.  Window squareness and light gap variance become obvious and can create installation challenges.  The great thing about the hinges is that they have adjustments that make it easy to square the panel without moving brackets.  

 

Although the look is great a framed shutter provides some benefits - light block, elimination of gaps, shallower window depths. Euro hinges also require deep recess and could become an issue with rabbetted panels. Although challenging it's worth the extra when done correctly.
