Smart Ways To Use Aluminum Foil
It's amazing how people have gotten creative with the spaces that they live in. From minimalist designs to eco-friendly living spaces, the modern world has become a place for limitless ideas. This time, we talk about rooms that have been hidden from plain sight. You'd be amazed at where these entrances can be found!
First up on this list is definitely an example of a room hidden in plain sight. In the photo, you see a fairly standard hallway. It's well lit, there's a doorway that leads to a room on the left and the balcony or backyard straight ahead. But in this photo is also the entrance to a secret room. Can you guess where it is?
Just like from a scene in some thriller or spy movie, the door to the entrance is actually the shelf space that was on the left. It was constructed to conceal the doorway that was originally there. The shelves blend perfectly with the wall so it looks like it's really supposed to be there! Here's what lies behind the door!
The room leads to what the person who shared this secret room calls his man cave. Going through the door, we see what is what we assume is the house or apartment's spare bedroom. The owner of the room has ruined this place into his domain. It's got a bean bag chair, a piano, a gaming chair, his book collection and a pretty big tv with gaming consoles too! Imagine that!
As it turns out the bookcase, or shelf-like secret doors are fairly easy to construct as long as you have the right tools! There's even a whole DIY tutorial video on YouTube. You can really find guides to just about anything on that platform these days. The "I Like To Make Stuff" Channel's video even has 13 million views! Wonder how many actually went on to follow their instructions. Oh well, on to the next one!
Speaking of bookcases being turned into secret doors, here's another one! With the world being the way that it is today, more and more people have been forced to work from home. That also means that more and more people are getting creative with their home offices! Take this lady for instance. She hid her ideal home office and safe space behind a bookcase!
Behind this bookcase is a hidden room with a whole lot of space. It's got a couch a carpet, a coffee table, a tv, and a desk! The owner even has the whole back wall decorated with pictures of people that inspire her to work better! The only things missing are a fridge and a window!
Okay, so normally we'd ask you to guess where the entrance of this hidden room is, but let's be real. After the last couple of examples, it's pretty obvious where. Another beautifully and ingenious idea for a secret room, concealed by an unassuming bookcase. Let's take a peek inside!
While this next photo may be a little too dark to comprehend what's behind the door, we can explain it to you. Behind this door, is a broom closet that's been converted into a miniature home theater! After that short trail of red LED lights is a tv screen on the left, and a small coffee table and some throw pillows on the right, and a digital fireplace at the back to set the mood. Perfect for those looking to lounge around without anyone knowing where they are!
Here's a secret room that was hand-built by the person who shared it on Reddit. He had a pretty big garage, and it was very messy. So he decided to do something about it. After laying down plans on how to get organized, he realized that he could treat himself with a hidden room for himself! It turned out quite nicely.
Off to the backside of his newly organized garage is was a wall that has all his tools hung up! It's not just any wall though, it's also the entrance to his hidden room. The owner of the hidden room even put in place a special way to open the door to the room. One needs to pick out the right tool, a small screwdriver, and poke the lock on the wall to open the door.
It truly takes some skill with one's own two hands to be able to come up with this idea and execute it. Behind this interestingly designed door to a hidden room lies the man's workshop and storage space for things he doesn't want his young children to get their hands on - for their own safety, of course. Who knows? Maybe in the future, this will turn into another mancave.
We can't dent the appeal of having a hidden room. Sometimes life gets hard and we just need a little private nook to have ourselves some "me time." Here's one that takes a person's bedroom, an already private space, and makes it even more special with its own secret room!
The entrance to the room is neatly hidden in the guise of a shelf. Again, if you're thinking about making a hidden room, shelves and bookcases are great ways to start! The doorknob that opens the room is also hidden from plain sight. You have to open its own secret door to get the secret door. Doorception!
Once you open the door, you're greeted by a small flight of stairs that leads you to a small room. But what a room it is! It's a private library! Just look at that bookcase. The room is lit up by a massive window that welcomes a whole lot of sunlight. It will truly brighten up anyone's day. Bookworms can spend days here feeling at home and safe.
Have you seen the movie, Tron? What about its sequel, Tron Legacy? Well, it's a Disney sci-fi fantasy film that inspired video game nerds for generations. Here's a story about one superfan of the franchise that wanted to take a piece of Tron's legacy home with him. See what I did there? Just like in the movie, it starts off with a quarter and a game.
Okay, having a classic Tron arcade game at home is already an amazing thing to have, but to have it be the entrance to a hidden room is totally bonkers! The room behind this door is just any secret man cave, but it opens up to the owner's version of Flynn's arcade from the movie. He's got a whole arcade hidden by this door.
We weren't kidding when we said this persona had a replica of an arcade behind that cool door! Pinball machines, fooseball, basketball games, and more, the person had the staple arcade games you'd hope to see. But that's not all, he also added a special touch to an already amazing hidden room.
Yup! If that popcorn machine is any indication of what special touches he made to this already amazing space, you know what else is there! A home theater. That popcorn machine isn't just for the show. The working home theater has the capacity to seat about a dozen people. Talk about the next level!
