You Would Want a Hidden Door After You See This
No, secret doors and hidden rooms are not something only seen in the movies. So many architects are getting creative and are actually making these things possible today. Owning a house can let you be creative and imaginative so why not include a hidden passage way, secret door or room in your home? Look at these and get inspired.
1 Home Theater Ticket Booth Hidden Door
You like to have a hidden door and a home film theater? That’s cool because there is this company called Home Theater Ticket Booth Door from Creative Building Resources that can combine those two things. The interior of the hidden door functions like your traditional ticket booth, complete with recessed lighting. On the front of the ticket booth, a detailed wood inlay displays the high level of craftsmanship involved in constructing this hidden passageway. For those who intend to staff the ticket booth, or at least fill it with a costume-draped dummy, the interior is accessed through a full sized cabinet door at the back. Pretty cool and it would definitely gather all your friends immediately.
2 Staircase hidden door
This is very practical and useful for smaller spaces. The staircase rises to reveal a hidden room, where you can store whatever you want and in this case the owners have some antique furniture. A remote control lifts an entire staircase out of the way revealing the hidden passage.
3 Hidden wine cellar
This is wonderful solution for people who want to have wine cellars at home but have very small space. The Spiral Cellars design/build firm will dig a hole right in whatever room you want your cellar in and haul the dirt right out the front door. In the remaining void they infill a highly functionally and visually dazzling spiral-staircase wine cellar to fit all your favorite vintages and go with your favorite funky furniture designs. The cellars are kept at ideal temperatures, insulated on the sides and top. Cool air is piped in and warm air is piped out. Even when no air flow is needed for temperature purposes it is kept moving to keep the air fresh.
4 Narnia inspired wardrobe that leads to hidden playroom
The kids who play here must be thrilled to have something that is closest to the real world Narnia. It definitely was inspired from the movie, so when you open the closet there is another room where you can play undisturbed. This wardrobe is actually a secret entrance to a playroom. The owner of the house had the wardrobe and figured he might as well add a touch of magic to the house for a pretty amazing result.
5 Fireplace hidden door
Another magical hidden door that leads somewhere exiting. Well, these owners must have seen a lot of movies. It is by the coolest and the smartest design practical and fun at the same time. This way you get a secret room that you don’t have to share it with anyone where you can have your alone time, get hide in cases of emergencies or simply store things that you don’t want to take the space from your other rooms.
6 Victorian facade hidden garage
This way you can definitely keep your house façade in the full shine, without additional metal garage doors. This one is in San Francisco where most houses are on the hills without much space for improvisation. The bottom floor of a property was built in order to maximize the tenant’s rent. By hiding the space behind a retractable facade indistinguishable from the rest of the historic Victorian apartment house, they were able to avoid running afoul of the city planning department strict appearance codes.
7 Painted wall with hidden door
The renaissance European castles were inspiration for this hidden door. It’s resemblance with the French or Austrian castles, the realistic paints of nature and animals are supposed to get your attention away from the door that is supposed to blend in the whole painting. Maybe you will spot it but the entire idea is successful, making this room and the hidden one being good replica of the ones seen in the aristocratic castles.
