Such a useful collection of photos! Thank you.

Form / function take-away (for me): 1. Must find out what those hinges are called (often used in larders), where the doors disappear properly into the sides (pictured in 15). 2. Duh - it is just like a garden shed door: the wider the better. 3. Sliding doors could potentially prevent access to nearby storage (photo 20). 4. Establish minimum useable width or don't bother. 5, Folding down /up or pulling out is the way to go in really small spaces. 6. Spend the money on hinges and haptics.
