In designing my kitchen, we are moving our kitchen door to accommodate a new run of cabinets (which includes a much-needed pantry). The door will be relocated to the center of the wall that leads into our foyer. In my mind, a traditional door just won’t work. My first thought was to leave the doorway open.

Remodelista has a whole article on sliding barn doors and I am drooling at the thought. In fact, I am thinking about doing the same thing on the opposite foyer wall for our coat closet. It could be a nice way to add a design element that is functional.
