On each of these lower cabs should I get 4 butterfly hinges or 4 of the typical barrel style? Please read:

The contractor was supposed to get one large single panel shaker style door for each of the lower cabinets but he got double doors instead. They'll probably be awkwardly narrow - especially since shaker style. I don't have proof that I asked for single doors. Aside from all that, if I'm going to be stuck w/ double doors, I'm going to have the problem of TOO MANY HINGES. I wanted concealed hinges but they're huge on the inside and take up a lot of room. With double doors it would be twice as bad so now I'm stuck getting either butterfly or semi-concealed (the typical barrel style). I like butterfly hinges but at times - if there are too many - they can look like you have a spider infestation!! ;) They can be very cluttery. But I don't love the barrel style!

The upper cabs are original w/ original butterfly hinges and I'm leaving them the way they are - though I might paint the upper cabinets the same color as the lower cabinets will be (BM's Fieldstone Gray). The lower hardware will be polished nickel because my inspiration kitchen (same paint color) used polished nickel w/ that gray-green and it's soooo beautiful. All the trim will be that same color too but all walls/ceiling will be cream.

(backsplash will be white honed calacatta marble subway tile and countertop will be stainless)


Thank you!!
