passage:最酷的隐蔽门! 你能找的到吗?(上)


Home Theater Ticket Booth Hidden Door  家庭影院售票处的隐蔽门
      If you are big fan of unique hidden doors and cool home theaters, the Home Theater Ticket Booth Door from Creative Building Resources (CBR) combines the best of both worlds. CBR's elaborate hidden door features a programmable, scrolling LED sign built into the top of the frame, while the interior of the hidden door functions like your traditional ticket booth, complete with recessed lighting. On the front of the ticket booth, a detailed wood inlay displays the high level of craftsmanship involved in constructing this hidden passageway, although we'd recommend ditching the frosted comedy and tragedy faces on the front ticket booth glass. For those who intend to staff the ticket booth, or at least fill it with a costume-draped dummy, the interior is accessed through a full sized cabinet door at the back. As this hidden door is a custom creation from CBR, we'd recommend ordering yours to match your own home theater decor.

      When Louise Kircher, a retired teacher, and her husband, Dennis, a former accounting manager at Boeing, moved into their year-old, 4,300-square-foot contemporary home in Mesa, Ariz., the staircase in the master bedroom was something extra that came with the house. It rises to reveal a hidden room, where she and her husband store an antique bedroom set and a replica of a gilded mummy's coffin. A remote control amazingly lifts an entire staircase out of the way revealing the hidden passage.

      To make sure your hidden door stays hidden, Creative Home Engineering offers a number of non-traditional hiding machines. Sure, they've got the standard revolving bookcase and sliding wall panels. But, the company also constructs hidden doors from grandfather clocks, fireplaces, paintings, stairwells, and other household fixtures. They also offer an option that allows your hidden door to double as a vault door, so your valuables stay double protected.

But, even if you don't, Creative Home Engineering claims that a quality hidden door can make a solid investment from an appreciation standpoint.
