When it comes to creating a secret room you have two options. Firstly, you might choose to conceal an existing room or facility using something like a secret bookcase door. Alternatively, you might wish to create an entirely new space, using partition walls to divide up one of the larger rooms in your home.
But why should you consider creating a secret room or hidden door in the first place? Hidden rooms and secret doors can serve a number of purposes, be that for security or recreational spaces and they can even add value to your property. If you're thinking about creating a secret room, below are just some of the best ways to use your space.
Secret room adds security
Whether you're creating a secret passageway, hiding a panic room or disguising a safe with a secret bookcase door, hidden spaces can be great for adding security features to your home. After all, they're hidden! So should an intruder or any prying eyes get access to your property, they’ll be none the wiser.
Creating a cosy space
Why not create a room where you can escape the world? This could be a cosy snug, a library or even the entrance to your swimming pool, you don’t have to tell anyone about your private space if you don't want to. This way, you can hide away at the end of the day and feel confident that you won’t be disrupted.
Concealing a lift
Having a lift at home or in your office can be great for those with limited mobility, transporting bigger items or even offering access to other secret rooms. But why not take it one step further and hide this away using a practical bookcase door or bespoke shelving unit.
Hiding a home office
If you work from home, whether that’s all the time or just occasionally, getting a home office set up should be a priority. And choosing a hidden office could be the solution. Firstly, it reduces the risk of distractions as you're tucked away and secondly, it’s a good place to store any important or confidential work-related documents.
