Basin Custom
All of our hardware is very sturdy and durable. All of our tracks are made on site in southern Idaho. We take great pride in everything we do and that is why we see each and every item through from start to finish personally. We also have a powder coating facility on site which allows us to further customize hardware for our customers. We have even made a cherry red track!! The wheels on our tracks are extremely quiet and our end stops are rubber so you wont ever have the loud metal on metal sound! Be sure to visit our website at or email us at

Depends what you're doing up there! bum bum..!

Seriously though, it depends on what running gear you're using, what support members are needed for your doors, the ceiling etc. Check clearance needs from your manufacturer, and your archtiect or structural engineer.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Have Your Open Kitchen and Close It Off Too
Give Yourself OptionsConsider installing a large sliding barn door or two, to allow you the flexibility of having an open or closed kitchen. You can keep it open for everyday use — to enjoy the open, expansive feel and circulation of light — while having the option to shut those doors if you want to keep kids, pets or visitors out, or to hide the prep mess while entertaining.

This is my favorite semi closed option. I'd want a big "open" kitchen with lots of places for people to join me in there (island, breakfast nook, etc) but also the option to close it off from the rest of the house, particularly to block noise and sometimes smells. Off topic: is there a way to extend the range hood past just the range for when frying fish on the counter? Note: resave this comment to kitchen
