For decades, characters like Batman and James Bond have popularized hidden doors and clandestine passageways. Many homeowners have followed suit,adding secret areasto store valuables, provide a safe place in an emergency or create a fun playroom. Could a hidden feature make you feel safer, secure your possessions better or add to your home's appeal?
Conceal a Room With Books Sometimes the best part of a bookcase isn't what's on the shelves but what's behind it. These large structures create the perfect veil for asecret door to an undisclosed room. An architect can help you work with the space you have and figure out the details, like which direction a door should swing.
Secure Valuables in an Inconspicuous Safe A safe is an excellent option for storing and protecting assets like jewelry, passports and cash. But if leaving it in plain sight feels too vulnerable, try concealing it entirely. A wall cutout behind a picture frame, cabinet or mirror makes for an ideal hideaway.
Make a Stealthy Escape Want an inconspicuous escape route? Consider installing an underground passage with asecret switch to activate it. For example, chess pieces moved into a specific position or a particular book pulled from a shelf can reveal the opening. You can also choose from biometric authentication such as a fingerprint or eye scanner.
You don't have to be a superhero or a secret service agent to enjoy hidden spaces in your home. No matter what you have to hide, a secret room or passage can keep it concealed.
