New Sliding door type

A solid core door would help with noise reduction. We’ve got a Hume system that slides easily and is soft close, so no banging shut

Walk in Pantry shelf hights

Those heights are fine, have you thought about what you want to store on the shelves? 400 will fit a large cereal box nicely.

More tiling in the entrance hall, I’m liking these.

Electrical Plan Critique/Help

As mentioned, bedrooms need more than one, even if it’s currently a double. Alfresco definitely, plus other external.
More more more in kitchen!
