We used a commercial Rixson center-hung pivot hinge on this bookcase. Almost every situation where you have pivoting bookcase door will have unique factors including side & overhead clearances, trim conditions and aesthetic goals. We recommend working with your cabinet fabricator to choose a hinge that is applicable to your unique situation.

If side & overhead clearance is flexible, would you said center-hung hinge is the easiest to be install?

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Shhh ... It's a Secret (Door, Room, Staircase)
Using bookcases is by far the number-one way that a hidden room is concealed. I think this works best when you have a library or an office with several bookcases lined up so that nothing looks out of place or leads people to suspect a hidden door. But how do you make a recessed bookcase swing open? Read on.

I love the idea of a small hidden room should an intruder be lurking or to hide items that need to be hidden. I think the current hallway closet next to Jacob's room and across from our room would be a good room to conceal.
