Hidden Door Storage: More Ways to Conceal

In the DIY and home construction world, you can almost guarantee that anything you dream up will become a reality. This is especially true when it comes to specialty and hidden storage. False drawer bottoms, removable panels in the floor boards, or secret spots. Creating a storage space in your home that is hidden in plain sight can offer security and peace of mind.

From small hidden pieces to whole secret rooms, people have been creating unique designs for homes for a very long time. There are even entire homes, like this brownstone below, created as a fake front for managing subway train lines!

When CS Hardware went to the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, they brought one of their most popular products, the InvisiDoor hidden bookcase door. This caught the attention of the attendees; all professionals in the home building industry. CS Hardware is one of the only companies around that manufactures (and customizes) hidden bookcase doors in addition to providing the hardware for installation.

As Gary Striegler from Fine Homebuilding noted in this video from IBS, contractors used to have to construct their own hidden doors in creative ways. It’s not always an easy task. Now, with the pivot hinges and a door that can be ordered, installing a hidden door on your own isn’t such a tall order. Now homeowners can seriously consider a hidden door as an option for adding a unique element to their home or for creating a safe space for emergencies.

The other product CS Hardware brought to the show is brand new, called the InvisiFrame. The hidden bookcase door is great, but many customers don’t have the right space to install one. Now they can still create a smaller hidden space for valuables and other items.

The InvisiFrame comes fully assembled in a selection of unfinished wood types, including the recessed cabinet. Customers cut into their drywall to create the space for the frame and then install with instructions included. Custom sizes can also be requested, which means you can fit something of an unusual height or width. Select either a mirror or frame to be the cover, which slide open and close on simple slides.

The shelves of the cabinet behind the frame are moveable to fit the specific items you need to conceal. CS Hardware tries to make instructions and assembly simple for all their products to aid both contractors and home improvement enthusiasts alike. This can be especially important for those installing hidden doors and frames – the whole point of installing something secret is to be the only one who knows where the precious items are stored!

Rolling Barn Door on Display at IBS 2014

Rolling barn doors have increased in popularity over the years, with an increased focus coming from design blogs around the world. These rolling doors can provide a new look and style, and often can be used to hide an otherwise unsightly section of the home.

Homeowners with a “laundry wall” (versus a laundry room) love the rolling barn door because it seamlessly hides the machines when not in use. The same goes for large pantry closets, children’s closets, or an extra storage area. Using a rolling barn door for these kinds of closets and rooms doesn’t take up much space and lets you put a more creative spin on your home.

The selection of barn door styles for installation have grown, which means it’s easy to find the right fit for your home’s style. Looking for more of an Etsy-inspired barn look? Get a classic wood door and choose horse shoe or wolf design roller straps. Instant rustic country vibe! Instead, if you’re hoping to streamline a modern look, you could pick out a stainless steel door kit, and get a modern glass or painted wood door.

At the International Builders’ Show in February, we had our rolling barn door kit, including our ready to assemble door, on display. We produced a video to show the rolling door in action, including all the choices for installation. Customers can use our hardware with a door they purchase or salvage, or they can buy our ready to assemble door for a simple set up. Our unfinished pine door comes unassembled and lets you still customize the door with any finish or paint of your choosing.

Unlike a pocket door, which is installed internally and requires a great deal of labor, a rolling barn door is installed on the outside frame of a door. This makes for a simpler installation process, and it gives homeowners more options when they’re remodeling their home. Adding a barn door to any existing door or closet area is easy and doesn’t require tearing down any walls.

The rollers included in the hardware kit are made of nylon, which ensures smooth and quiet gliding. Even in a high traffic area of the home, using this barn door shouldn’t ever be a nuisance. Along with a variety of styles of roller straps shown in the video, customers can see that there are different finishes. From classic satin nickel to vibrant barn red, you can create any number of barn door styles in your home.

International Builders’ Show last month (if you haven’t read our recap yet, check it out!) and they visited the CSH booth.

All screen caps below taken from this video.

Senior editor Justin Fink met up with longtime contributor Gary Striegler to talk about our InvisiDoor hidden bookcase door. Striegler works on custom homes and works for high end clients, so he demands the best of his hardware. But it needs to be simple too! Striegler said he’s now installed three of these doors for clients and he was excited to describe the benefits — as well as how easy it is to install — to Fink.

Before the InvisiDoor came around, most contractors would have to get creative to turn a normal doorway into a functioning pivot bookcase door. He points out how the InvisiDoor comes with two pivot hinges to be installed for either an outswing or inswing use. It’s the same hardware, and you just install it the way you want!

Pivot Hinges

Additionally, the hardware includes a bottom catch (shown below) that ramps up and settles into a recess. Striegler explains that this keeps the door from sagging and holds it against the door stop.

Striegler also confirms that our hidden bookcase door can hold a great deal of weight, which is important for a door that functions as a bookcase. The InvisiDoor is definitely not just a vanity piece, we want you to get great design function and style all in one.

Inswing InvisiDoor

Describing a recent hidden bookcase door install he completed, Striegler explain that the InvisiDoor worked perfectly to complete the look of a newly paneled wall in a home. Even if you’re not interested in creating a secret room, the bookcase style of the door can create a fun look to the room or seamless style that fits the home.

You can purchase the hinges to install your own bookcase door or purchase a whole kit from CS Hardware! Click here to browse our selection.

CSH Steps Up with a Library Ladder for the Room to Dream Foundation

Last fall CS Hardware answered the call for a rolling library ladder needed to help outfit rooms for a family and their daughter

who is living with a chronic illness. The Room to Dream Foundation was getting started on a new project for a child in need, and they contacted CS Hardware to get involved. Sydni, a young girl tackling a chronic illness, and her family, received a great home makeover with three re-vamped bedrooms. The bedroom CS Hardware worked on is a room with bunk beds for two children, which needing a rolling library ladder for easy access. Kids love having bunk beds and sharing a room with their siblings when they’re growing up. (Then of course, we all reach that age where “space” becomes paramount.)

CS Hardware contributed their unique Quiet Glide rolling library ladder to the bunk bed set up in Sydni’s home. The Quiet Glide technology means that no matter how much the children use the ladder or slide it back and forth it slide along smoothly. To complement the teal and white of the bedroom, CS Hardware sent a wood ladder painted with a smooth white finish along with satin nickel hardware pieces. The library ladder was installed flawlessly thanks to the easy instructions and sturdy equipment.

One of the best qualities about this rolling library ladder set it up is how easy it is to store flat against a wall. This keeps the ladder out of the way and keeps all the children safe when the ladder isn’t meant to be used. CS Hardware even made sure to specially engrave the bottom ladder step for Room to Dream. Just this month CS Hardware received a very nice thank you card written by Sydni. The team hopes to continue offering their help and hardware to organizations like this and other projects from Room to Dream!

View the full set of photos from Sydni’s room here.

The Room to Dream Foundation works to create healing environments for children and adolescents who face a chronic illness – whether it’s in a hospital, community center, or their own home. The team at CSH felt touched by the mission of Room to Dream, especially their goal to help improve the child’s quality of life, helping promote strength, self-worth and more during the recovery process.

CSH at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas

What happened in Vegas did not stay in Vegas with last week’s International Builders’ Show as thousands of manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and dealers gathered to showcase, learn and explore what’s new in the residential construction industry. From Feburary 4 -6, CSH had a booth at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show on the exhibition floor, which covered nearly 440,000 square feet of space in the convention center.

CS Hardware has gone to IBS for eight years now, and they always brings some of their best products to showcase on the floor. They set up shop at booth C4516 for the three-day event with their ready-to-assemble cabinets, rolling door, bi-fold InvisiDoor hidden bookcase door, and rolling library ladder on display. The CSH team agrees that IBS is by far the best show and they love returning year after year. The popular products they show let attendees see the wood finishes and functionality at work first-hand. See below for a video of the bi-fold InvisiDoor at this show.


IBS saw more than 75,000 builders, remodelers and suppliers over the course of three days of events and exhibits. Many people at the event, as well as businesses and NAHB members, noted that there was a strong energy at the event compared to previous years. As the economy continues to recover and more people start building or expansion projects, the residential construction industry has seen an uptick in enthusiasm from businesses. More people than ever before are in a “ready to buy” mode instead of just browsing and contemplating finances.

A look at CSH’s booth at the 2014 International Builders’ Show:

This was the first year where the organizers of the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show worked with NAHB to create a Design & Construction Week. This meant that attendees of either event could cross over to the other show’s floor. The International Window Coverings Expo was also added as another bonus for attendees. With the show being bigger than ever before this year, it was a great way for other business, builders, distributors, and more to mingle and learn about other businesses. In addition to the large exhibition floor, IBS hosts a variety of education focused events including forums about technology and building trends.

CSH showed their rolling barn door, both the traditional style with solid door and their newer stainless steel barn door hardware for glass doors. Other American-made products were on display. Last year CSH took the initiative to design an exclusive line of American-made ready to assemble kitchen cabinets. A consistent support of the movement toward more domestically produced products lead to CSH’s rolling barn door, rolling library ladder, and select brands such as Blum, which are all made in the US.

Check out this video of the rolling library ladder in action on the floor:


Overall the three-day event felt very successful for CS Hardware. The CSH team was happy to meet other vendors and explore the other exhibits and educational forums. Most of all, though, they were

What You Don’t Know About Rolling Library Ladders

The term “rolling library ladder” may conjure up some antique visuals. Ladders rolling on long tracks throughout cavernous library rooms; an old mansion’s designated library with a propped ladder near the shelf. The truth is that rolling ladders have moved beyond the library. The term may still apply to the hardware, but the implementation can be just about whatever you can imagine. While less common in the US, in other countries building up instead of out is more logical. So if you’re thinking of a way to expand that only requires a ladder instead extra square footage, you can save time and

Commercial Uses

Ladders can provide function and style to the home or a commercial business. A large wine store can utilize the rolling ladder so that employees can safely stock and grab bottles. Retail stores can similarly use the ladders for those hard to reach items without having an obstructing stool or creaky ladder to grab from the back room. Even the bigger box grocery stores could install a

Dryer my non prescription cialis filling. Fine you palette http://www.w-graphics.com/kak/buy-viagra-over-the-counter.html original Islands it.

ladder for their backroom operations.

Easy Sliding Storage

One of the barriers to installing a rolling library ladder is that it seems like it would take up a great deal of space. Potential customers might picture walking into the ladder in the kitchen or living room, where it would be more of an annoyance than a convenience to reach high cabinets and shelves. With new rolling ladder technology, though, these problems are no longer a big concern. For example, the wheels are metal, rusting, or loud. CSH's rolling library ladder has the Quiet Glide system, which has nylon upper wheels and rubber wheels on the lower hardware to let the ladder move smoothly and quietly.

The other issue of storage is also taken care of with the newer hardware. The sliding mechanism at the top of the ladder lets consumers lift the ladder up to a stored position solidly against the wall. When you’re ready to use the ladder, it can easily be moved back into the climbing position. This way the inactive ladder doesn't have to be an inconvenience and you can mostly forget about or consider it another piece of wall art when in the stored position.

Splicing Together

Piecing together rails isn't too difficult with well-made equipment. Usually found in 8-foot and 4-foot sections, these pieces can be attached with steel pins and bars and then tightened with a set screw. This way you can create the railing to fit the exact length you need for the ladder. Most manufacturers offer curved rails with various degrees so you can even fit the ladder track around corners.

when you see one out in the world, you only know half of what you’re truly seeing. InvisiDoors, or hidden bookcase doors, are designed specifically to fit seamlessly into a home, as if it were an invisible door. When customers install a hidden door into their home, they’re hoping to conceal an extra room for a variety of purposes. We’ll take a look at this unique product and the value it can bring to the home.

Why Hidden Door

of a hidden bookcase door goes beyond the room it conceals. The door itself offers more shelving and storage. Depending on your desired aesthetic you can personalize the door with paint, by adding cabinet doors, by adding wood appliques, and more. Hidden doors can be used to replace an existing door to a room or a closet, or it can be installed from scratch in a new construction project.

Uses for Hidden Door

Hidden doors most likely bring up thoughts of haunted homes or panic rooms and doomsday preparations. These are both great uses, but hidden doors can also just be for fun! Create a secret playroom for your children or a great place to hid presents for birthdays and holidays. Use it as secure storage for emergency supplies, such as non-perishables and water. It’s often tempting to pick at the available supply when you run low in the house, but this way it’s hidden out of sight. On the other hand, you could install it to cover a closet. Basically, the hidden door can serve the purpose you prefer.

Installation is Easy

Hiring a contractor can be expensive, which is why the hidden bookcase door comes with instructions for customer installation. Whether you want to presence of your hidden door to feel more secret or you just want to do the hard work yourself, even a novice home contractor can complete the installation within a few hours. With the pivot hinge you can choose whether you prefer a door swinging in or out of the room. Once the door is installed you can stain and finish it – and add whatever else you want to customize the look.

How to Maximize the Space in Your Kitchen

Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes homeowners will compromise on the kitchen initially with visions of improving it later on. The kitchen is quite often a bustling place for cooking meals and entertaining. If the space is limited, don’t feel cheated. Get creative! Consider some useful ideas for maximizing kitchen space and your less-than-ideal kitchen will feel like a perfect fit.

Extend Countertops

Counter space is a premium in the kitchen. It’s essential to concocting big meals and keeping everything organized. When countertop space is limited in the kitchen, it requires creativity to avoid juggling bowls or dishes falling on the floor. Depending on the space you’re dealing with, you could extend the counter top on one side of the sink or oven. Consider installing a true countertop addition or just getting a TV tray (at the right height) to add more space.

Lazy Susan in Cabinets

Many people think they’re a wizard when it comes to fitting everything in their kitchen cabinets, but sometimes the single shelf just won’t hold enough. This is where adding a lazy Susan comes in handy. Lazy Susans provide several shelf layers to install into your cabinet or pantry, and many of them rotate as well. Not only will you be able to store more into one shelf, but nothing will be unreachable in the back when the shelves rotate easily.

Stool for Tall Shelves

Speaking from experience, you can lose a great deal of your kitchen storage and function if it outmatches you in height. When space is limited, it’s important to be able to reach and store items in all the shelves. Instead of leaving the shelf empty, tucking a foot stool next to the cabinets or in the bottom shelf allows you full access. Imagine how much more can be stored, from extra pantry non-perishables to dishes and beyond.

On-Door and Sink Front Storage

As an alternative to the lazy Susan suggestion, on-door storage allows for organization and prioritizing. By attaching a wall mounted rack of bins on the inside of the door, you can place the spices or condiments you reach most often. As

for sink front storage, this allows for saving more room around the actual sink. Instead of kitchen odds and ends filling up more valuable drawer space, they can sit in the sink front tray. These are usually small and installed to tip out in front of the sink, in the space between the edge of the counter and the sink bowl.

4 Ways to Reuse Old Drawers

Repurposing old home items for new uses is a great way to give new life to something worn down that you’d normally toss. Cabinet or dresser drawers that are in need of replacing can find a new use in other parts of your home. Whether it’s your old furniture or you want to pick up old furniture at a garage sale, there are ways to make the most of what seems like junk. For cabinets, remove the drawer slides and you’re all set! On the other hand, side mount drawer slides and other non-bottom mount styles could be left on for added character. Consider using the slides as an accent to paint or to attach other pieces to. From there, you can stain the drawer to cover wear and tear, or paint a brand new color. Start by deciding how you’d like to reuse the drawer and then the color as well as styling decisions will follow!

From Drawer to… Wall Mounted Mirror

Gluing a mirror inside an old drawer and mounting on the wall is a great way to set up a nice wall accent. Consider a smaller drawer for this project and mount it near your front door. The mirror allows you to check your appearance one last time before heading out. Additionally, switching out the door pull or knob and installing hooks in the leftover holes gives a convenient spot to hang keys or umbrellas.

From Drawer to… Storage and Design

Switch out drawer slides for table legs and you can prop up an old drawer for storage around the house. This is a great way to get double the use out of a larger old drawer. Storing extra throw pillows saves space and can

add another element of home décor in your living room or bedroom.

From Drawer to… Wall Mounted Shelf

Take an old drawer and add some extra wood dividers to create a shelf. This is a nice easy home project that doesn't require much work. Add the extra wood shelving pieces with strong wood glue and some screws for good measure. Mount the drawer on the wall and get to organizing extra supplies and knick knacks!

From Drawer to… Plant Holder

From in a dresser to out on the patio, creating a plant holder from big or small drawers can be a fun project. Mount the drawer on table legs, a tree trunk, or whatever fits your outdoor aesthetic. Stain it or let the natural weather elements turn it into a fixture in your yard!

Home Hardware for the Holidays

Home projects and hardware can take on a new life during the holiday season. Even if the handyman in your life just needs a new power tool, dressing up the gift with a bow or ribbon adds the holiday spirit. However, home projects during the holidays can stray from the usual upkeep and transform into hardware-based home improvement ideas that bring the holiday spirit into your home. Consider some ways to repurpose items in your home and really bring the festive feeling to everyday pieces.

Update Fireplace

Update the look of your fireplace with some accent pieces or additions. Fireplace mantels come in a variety of decorative, handcrafted styles. They come in fine woods, stone, granite, brick, and other materials. Add sleek sophistication to your fireplace with an intricate design. On the other hand, choosing a white mantel keeps the look of the fireplace clean while highlighting other decorations, such as stockings or lights in your home.

Reuse Cabinet Doors

Kitchen cabinets are a big part of your kitchen, and therefore a source of many home improvement ideas. From updating the hardware to change the look, to painting or refinishing the cabinets, these are some of the most common ideas home owners choose for a home project. However, since it’s the holidays, why not think of a completely new and decorative way to

change your cabinets? The first step is assessing your cabinet doors. If they need replacing, that’s a perfect excuse to find new cabinet doors, as well as decorative knobs and hinges for the new installation. But don’t toss your old cabinet door: repurpose it! Turn that cabinet door into a serving tray, a platform to display art, or even turn it into a message board with some chalkboard paint.

Winter Storage

A creative imagination can go a long way, especially when it comes to storage solutions. In the winter all your guests, and family members, arrive with big coats that need hanging and wet or dirty footwear that is meant for the outdoors. Adding extra hooks to your hallway or closet will allow you to store more. Consider using decorative hooks, whether it’s on your hallway wall or inside a closet, for a festive feel. Offer some wicker baskets for guests to place their wet or muddy boots. Shoes can get tossed around even with the best of intentions on a floor mat, but dropping them in baskets or buckets keeps everything in one place – and ensures the floor stays clean!
