Choosing the best hidden garden door ideas can be tricky. There are so many types of door systems available, and it is all so confusing. So let’s get straight to the point: what do you want in a door? Do you want a door that is not easily seen? Do you want a door that is not visible from the street or from the other side of the home? Do you want a door that is open, or a door that is partially open, to be concealed behind something?
You have three different options to choose from. The first is a simple lock. A lock is a physical seal, which means that it keeps a door shut, or a window from being opened. The lock does not conceal anything. There are no key, or fob, or door knocker, etc., so if the house becomes vandalized, or if a burglar is trying to gain access, there will be no way to open the door. On the other hand, some homes come with a porch swing, or maybe even a set of steps leading up to the door. For these kinds of doors, the lock may need to be modified slightly.
If the door does not have any major obstructions, there is another option. That option is a rail-to-rail hidden door. This is a kind of door that leads into a room, which is then hidden behind one or more walls. Sometimes a rail-to-rail door is used in order to conceal a stairway or an interior staircase. Sometimes the rail is used to conceal a long hallway leading from one room to another, to prevent intruders from seeing through the wall.
