15 Secret Rooms You Wish You Had as a Kid
Childhood is a fleeting time filled with so much wonder and curiosity; each moment a chance to explore and discover. If you were anything like me as a child, there was a mystery to be solved around every corner!
Having read every Nancy Drew book and swearing I was Harriet the Spy incarnate, my days were spent hunting for clues, looking for hidden passages, creating secret rooms and hiding out in discrete covert headquarters.
But, not only was I living my days straight out of mystery novel, I was also completely convinced fairy tales were real. There was no doubt in my mind that if I searched long enough I would find a magical hole in my backyard that would transport me to the enchanted world of Wonderland. I never did find that portal, but there is a still a part of my heart that knows it’s out there just waiting to be discovered.
There is nothing quite like the innocence and unadulterated imagination of a child. When you’re a kid, you can be anything from a pirate to a princess. I adore these amazing secret rooms and hidden spaces! I see myself as a young child being carried away to new worlds, imagination taking flight!

This Narnia inspired wardrobe is a childhood dream! When I was young, I was introduced to The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. These stories filled my world with more delight and intrigue than I had ever known. I remember tip-toeing to my mother’s wardrobe and slowly opening up the large doors….if I could only find the entryway into Narnia I could experience all the magic for myself.
