Question Need cabinet hinge help

We are remodeling our kitchen ourselves. Bought cabinets with face-frame 1/2" overlay doors. The original hinges are very plain and we'd like to replace them with a more decorative looking hinge. Spent hours on the net looking for hinges without any luck. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.

hinges

Chris,
Thanks for your suggestion, have been to Rockler. My dilemma is this. The cabinet doors do not fit flush with the face frame. They extrude 1/2" from the face frame. The decorative hinges I've seen must fit flat against the frame & door. We've considered the hidden European hinges--but they are too expensive--we have over 50 hinges to replace. The alternative hidden hinges need to be bored into--a very exacting and time consuming process. That's why we were trying to go the decorative route.

Does the door fit the frame this way?

Here is another idea. Although designed for 3/4", it might work in your application.
