Jasmine’s Favorite Secret Rooms Over the Years

Jasmine’s Favorite Secret Rooms Over the Years

If there’s an opportunity for a secret room or hidden feature in a home, I take full advantage. If you’ve watched my show or follow me on Instagram, you might have caught on to the fact that I’m all about these special projects. Why not have some fun with the place you spend the most time in?

My goal is to always add fun, functional, and unique features into a home. When it comes to #BuildYourHappy, it’s all about asking yourself what will make you smile…and that’s the best place to start.

There've been many projects over the years, and today I’m sharing a handful of my favorite hidden projects that make me happy. So whether you’re gathering inspiration or in the middle of working on your own special home project, I hope these spark joy in one way or another.

1 | Hidden Pantry

This secret pantry seen in Season 3, Episode 1 of “HELP! I Wrecked My House” will forever be a favorite. I love the styled shelves on the exterior of the door, and the spacious pantry once pushing it open. Instead of a standard pantry door, the shelves add a place for decor and storage. We were also able to make this pantry larger by taking space from the neighboring coat closet!

2 | Hidden Desk

I’m pretty proud of this one! From first glance, you wouldn’t think this is a desk, it simply looks like a piece of furniture that helps store and organize supplies, books, and crafts, right?! But the secret is, I had this custom built to create a hidden desk. The desk doesn’t take away from the dining room area, instead it creatively saves space. After the kiddos are done with homework or art projects, the family is able to push the chairs back in for that seamless, clean look once again.

3 | Hidden Nightstands

The hidden projects continue! In Season 3, Episode 9 of “HELP! I Wrecked My House”, I incorporated a Murphy bed into an office. While that cleared up a lot of space in the room, I wanted something more. I decided on custom built-ins installed onto each side of the bed that created both a nightstand and small closet. You would never know these are here whether the bed is up or down.

4 | Hidden Pool Table

Have you ever seen a dining room table that doubles as a pool table?! For a family of game-night lovers, I had to make this work. So when it’s time for dinner and hosting guests, the dining table exists, and when it’s time for some fun and friendly competition, the top of the table comes off to showcase the full-sized pool table. Not to mention, the pool sticks and billiard balls are hidden in the dining room bench. Pretty cool if I do say so myself.

5 | Hidden Play Area

I like to think if I would’ve loved something as a child, then it’s totally worth incorporating into a home. This hidden play area is featured under a kitchen island, because, why not?! It’s a creative space for the kids to hang out, imagine, and create. I love this idea to save space but still have a dedicated space to play.

6 | Hidden TV

Sometimes you don’t want the TV to be the focal point of a room, I get it! On Season 2, Episode 3 of “HELP! I Wrecked My House”, this custom hidden TV was the star of the show. While I do love and utilize Frame TVs in projects, this takes it to the next level. Controlled by a remote, the artwork moves up and down covering the TV when it’s not being used.

7 | Hidden Playroom

In one of my more recent projects, Camp Roth, I created a secret playroom in our basement. Removing the back of the dresser, I utilized the space under the staircase to create Hazel’s dream play area. So from the outside, you would never know there’s an entire room in here! This is definitely something my family and friends will enjoy and remember about our home.
