just a door that slides back or something that lays down and it rolls out on, but it needs to be a opening of at least 6 foot wide and 12 foot high and i want the storage room that it come out of to open on the other side just like a storage room or bedroom
Is the another room behind the door?
With a big door like that, you will need space for the door to swing. Did you leave the opening on the back side or did you cover it somehow? Thanks!!
www.hideadoor.com has several models. google secret door for others.
That's a great idea! You may want to consider barn doors for that. The doors can be made and painted to fit with the decor of your room and if done right will blend in. See our options here: http://rusticahardware.com/barn-door-hardware/

How far back can the door go?
I feel as though this door would take away a fair bit of floor space.. But if you have enough space it looks great!
Just wondering whether this door is heavy to open?
Can you tell me what the flooring is in the secret room...the wood lokking
position?the clearance it would take for this door to be operable with I'm guessing approximately 8" in depth and the hardware to keep door in closed position would in my opinion take the simple elegance of what appears to be a beautiful secret passage and throw it in the "I need to give this some more thought
Do you have more pics of secret rooms?
How does the door latch on the opposite side of where the hinges are?

Alameda Home Office
This home office was built in an old Victorian in Alameda for a couple, each with his own workstation. A hidden bookcase-door was designed as a "secret" entrance to an adjacent room.

Great design on the pivot door. We are working on a similar project. I was wondering if you knew the specs on the pivot door hinge that was used. Thanks.
What kind of hinges ar used to make the door work?
How easy to swing open would such doors with their weight of books such as these be?
Thank you. My bookworm daughter's closet door is already flanked by bookshelves and I already see she needs more bookshelves so I am thinking of replacing the closet door with this idea. Was just thinking of her going in to her closet and the weight of the books. Thanks for your prompt response!

secret door to get into craft room off the living room
Children love the idea of a secret closet!
like the secret room behind bookcase
Doors are often a waste of space. You can't put furniture in front of them. You can't hang stuff on all of them. But you can turn them into bookshelves, increasing your wall space and your knickknack-placement possibilities.

Help designing hidden library door into bedroom.
We are looking to do a doorway just like this in our new house and need advice on construction/engineering to make sure the door will be safe and functional. Currently, we are planning on a four foot solid wood door, with a
one foot book case mounted on exterior to match surrounding library. Any advice on how we make sure the door holds the weight and operates smoothly? Thanks! David and Nily
Top shelf above the door. Are those old copies of readers digest?

How does the other side of the door work? does it pretrude into the hall?
I saw a similar door to this one on an episode of "This Old House" but I did not hear who the manufacturer of the door was.
Where do you get plans for these door/bookcases?
Secret door that looks like shelves to bathroom
Project: Creating a hidden doorway.Things to consider: First you’ve got to decide where your secret doorway will be. Obviously, it’s going to be much easier to turn an existing doorway into a hidden one. Hallway closets, laundry rooms, mechanical rooms and home offices are great candidates. Otherwise

Make a secret passageway, with a twist. The closet on the right provides the depth for the opening on the left. Though a floor-to-ceiling bookcase is beneficial
