CEO at home saw some cabinets online with drawers and shelves that slid out of the door sections. Has anyone done this? What kind of slides are recommended?

Are you talking about putting drawers in existing lower kitchen cabinets?
Blum and other manufacturers have a wide selection of suitable slides. I really like the Blumotion under mount line.

https://www.blum.com/us/en/01/30/10/

They have great adjustment features and have integrated soft close feature.

If you mean having a cabinet with a hinged door that has pullout shelves or drawers behind the door then yes. I used the same Accuride Eclipse EC undermount slides that I also used for conventional drawer bases. The only real difference from a typical drawer in a drawer base is that the pullouts are not as deep so that when closed the front of the pullout is flush with the front of the face frame (if you're making framed cabinets).

This is a project I've been working on for the last few days, not sure if this is what your talking about.

i do this in every cabinet i make where you would have to bend down to reach an item. there are some things to consider --- the main thing being the open door/hinge clearance distance so you can offset the tray to ensure it doesn't contact the open door or hinge. there are a few easy ways to do this...

blum undermounts are great for this application, but sometimes i like to use the ones without blumotion because the time it takes to fully close prevents you from closing the door.

ed - nice trays!

Thanks for all the feedback.
I like the drawers in the tall cabinet, may have to look at that as well
