20 Secret Rooms You’ll Wish You Had In Your Own Home

Whether they remind you of Chicago speakeasies, medieval assassination plots or Cold-War precautions, secret rooms and passages have an undeniable mystique and appeal to them. Here are 20 secret rooms created with safety, work or play in mind.

The potential uses for a secret room are many, and they’ve been around for ages. In ancient Egypt, architects built secret rooms and hidden/false passageways to foil grave robbers. Numerous monarchs and rulers throughout history have made their escapes (or met their ends) all thanks to secret rooms and passageways. Modern presidents and other VIPs are also often protected by panic rooms, should the need arise.

Secret rooms today can provide you and your family with a safe haven or store room in the case of an emergency. Or a fun and cozy hidden nook to hide away from the outside world. Whatever the case may be, it is their secrecy and mystique that makes them so appealing to us.
