Hidden Doors: The Secret of Safety

There are many different ways you can create secret, safe spaces for emergency supplies in your home. When there’s a grid down type of situation, you can’t really rely on extensive technology to secure your home. That’s why you should prepare a hidden – yet manually accessible – safe space. Depending on your individual needs, that could range from an entire room to a tiny closet that nobody knows about, except for you. Read on to know the benefits of having hidden doors in your home.

Hidden Door Benefits

Hidden doors can be beneficial to creating a safe space in your home. Whether you choose a solid hidden door or a bookshelf-style door, you can really set up an undetectable entry to a secret room in your home. Choosing a flat panel style hidden door can also save you money – you only spend a few hundred dollars on the supplies and installation. If you’re feeling pretty brave, however, you can install your own hidden door. If you’re looking to create a hidden door that mingles function with style, and have the money to spare, you should consider getting a hidden bookshelf-style door.

Open cell foam is cushiony soft and has open cells that moisture can penetrate. It has an R-value of around 3 to 4 per inch. This foam must be installed by a contractor, which adds to the overall cost.

Safe Room and Supplies

A more common use for a secret room behind a hidden door is for safety. Installing a hidden bookshelf door will make the exterior room look more complete, while also being a secret gateway for you and your family to another room in case of an emergency, such as a home invasion. Even if you don’t foresee the need of a safe room, but want to keep a hidden space for all your safety or emergency supplies, you can work on getting an Invisidoor. This is also useful if you’re storing items you don’t want your children or other house guests accidentally digging into, and you can safely keep them out of sight. You can store backpacks, food bags, or any extra supplies that you might want to keep hidden until you need them.

If you prefer keeping food rations or other emergency supplies out of sight so that they don’t get used by accident, a bi-fold door is definitely a great way to achieve that goal. It helps increase useable space without taking up any more space.
