RE: What size trash can can you fit in a 15" space? (Follow-Up #10)

posted by: kathec on 03.13.2014 at 05:43 pm in Kitchens Forum

I have a 15" frameless cabinet for my trash cans. We bought the rev-a-shelf 27 quart 2 can pull outs from Lowes. They're the RV size. The online price shows about $60. We also got the door mounting kit, which was less than $20. The cans are smallish, but we empty regularly anyway. We went with the 2 can versus the 1 large can so we could have a bin for recyclables. We've been using it for over a year with no issues.

RE: What is your opinion on pocket doors? (Follow-Up #7)

I have been installing pocket doors for almost 30 years now.

The only hardware you want to look at is made by Johnson Hardware.
The 111PD hardware is excellent.

You need to be aware of clearances for electrical boxes.

Unless the wall is built thicker you cannot install any electrical boxes were the pocket is located without going to low voltage controls.
There is not enough clearance from the face of 1/2 inch drywall to the door itself for the boxes.

The only other issue with Johnson Hardware is preventing door sway when the door is closed.
The plastic guides they supply will scratch the face of the door.

A groove in the bottom of the door and a small piece of aluminum angle on the floor of the pocket work far better.

Any minor scratching is inside the groove were it doe not show.
If you stop the groove before the exposed edge of the door the entire groove is hidden.

For bathrooms stops can be placed opposite the pocket on the jamb.
