Your choice should be dictated by the degree of visual exposure associated with the hinge.

Such hinges should be compatible with the existing / future décor of the room.
Installation should always be completed by a professional, as it is extremely difficult to ensure level and evenly spaced cabinet doors without the proper tools and training.
