  1. This looks clean and though it looks like as though it will consume more space, I would choose this one for its robust look and color.

    I think you could use two of these rails: to make each door slide independently.

    maybe you want to try the faktum/integral sliding rails, available here:

    looks like the length of 120cm matches the besta very well, but i don’t know how to trim the height of the side rails. better check the instruction manual!

    let us know if and how you made it work :-)

    keep calm and hack on – Alex/Austria

    Thanks! Unfortunately the first option won’t work since you’d need double the space for them to open. I had thought about the Integral sliding rails but thought I’d have to buy the tallest ones and wasn’t willing to spend 130€! Maybe the small ones will work though, I didn’t realize that. Thanks!!

    Did you find a solution here? I was looking to do the same thing but couldn’t figure out how to have double sliding doors..
