Like many people, I’ve always found the idea of hidden doorways intriguing. The idea of having a secret place that only you know how to find is somehow appealing. Children’s stories are full of such places, like the Secret Garden or the Wardrobe that leads to Narnia in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. A secret entrance suggests a particularly special place is being concealed and to be the only one who knows about it is an exciting prospect.
I recently found a few amazing examples of secret doorways and thought I would share the finest cases with you. The first one is clearly inspired by the aforementioned, Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe novel. A wardrobe with a small door built into the back that leads into a child’s playroom. I would have loved to have this in my room as a kid.
The classic hidden door is of course the one made from a bookcase. I actually had a friend with such a door in their house when I was young; one side was a mirror and the other a bookcase. Many hours were spent playing games with these doors.
Hidden doors will make any home unique and interesting. Guests will be impressed and children’s imagination will go into overdrive. This hidden wine cellar adds an innovative storage solution, as well as a secret trap door. Cover it with a rug and no one will be any the wiser. The wine will be safe!
