Hidden Doors in Walls

Clients may choose to use hidden doors in their walls for aesthetic beauty or secrecy.

Option 1: Hidden doors placed in walls.

On our custom side, we can build seamless hidden doors in walls. These can be designed to match all sorts of wall designs, whether its hidden into a stone wall, paneled wall, or painted wall. One popular type is a hidden wainscot door. 

Some clients may have their contractor build an aesthetic door in their wall. For example you’ll notice in many White House photos that there are many instances of hidden doors in the walls. These are for primarily aesthetic reasons, for example to keep symmetry or to preserve a continuous design. 

The lines around these doors are clearly visible. However, our team can carefully engineer actual hidden doors in walls – where the door outline and hinges are fully concealed. 

The higher cost is a function of the unique nature of each project and the skill required to match the home’s existing architectural features. However, for those who require both secrecy and beauty, this may be the best option. Simply contact our team for custom information.

Option 2: Hidden doors in front of walls.

Rather than building a door inside of your wall, an opening in your wall can instead be concealed by an external piece of furniture which acts as a wall. Installing this hidden door on your wall can provide you with more flexibility and allow for significantly reduced investment required.

Rather than requiring significant design time to custom match a door to your wall, you can make use of an existing, and more widely produced secret door. 

We carry a wide variety of ready-to-ship secret doors for walls, including hidden bookcase doors, secret mirror doors, and secret armoires. These offer a variety of customizations and upgrades. We can also build a complete custom solution.
