I’ve always thought hidden passageways in houses were pretty cool, but I’ve also always thought that you have to have huge house to need one. Then I came across this company called Hidden Passage Doorways. They can replace your standard interior door with a swinging bookcase, wine rack, or just about anything else you can think of. Why didn’t I think of this sooner?! You don’t need to have something to hide to use one of these doors. Why not put a door to use with extra storage space, specially when you’ve got a small space.
I have a pantry in my kitchen and could easily use one of these to hold cookbooks or my more decorative cookware and serving pieces. Or the closet in my dining room that is useful but drives me nuts because closets don’t belong in dining rooms could be hidden behind a “built in” book case displaying silver and crystal. The company claims that because of the super-smooth hinge system that they use, items on the shelves don’t shift as long as the door is closed properly.
A little bit of paint and you can create a truly custom look with these hidden doors. And as Hidden Passage Doorways builds to spec, the possibilities are just about endless. These could be life changing for someone living in a small apartment in the city, and are just perfect for those rooms that don’t have enough wall space for furniture to fit into well. Plus it’s kind of fun to ask a guest to grab you something from the closet and have them try to find it. If you happen to notice that I suddenly don’t have any closets, there’s a good chance I’ve ordered a bunch of these up.
