It might be the extra time we’ve all had to spend indoors, but recently a number of people have found strange hidden features in their homes.
From tunnels to secret rooms, some of the discoveries have been very interesting, but none as confusing as this tiny door.
An unnamed woman shared her house find on Facebook, showing off a tiny door with a chute behind it to ask what it was.
In the newly-bought house, she noticed an ornate mini door about the size of an a4 piece of paper.
Unsure what it was, the woman took to Facebook to get some hints from others, and the suggestions were fairly varied.
‘Laundry chute’, said one, but others argued that the door is too small, saying, ‘I had one and this is way too narrow.’
Other suggestions included a milk delivery box, a door leading to a bin so you can sweep and go, and Stuart Little’s house.
Perhaps the strangest, yet the most plausible given the woman doesn’t know where it leads, is a ‘fairy door’.
These doors are put in so children can post notes, give presents to, and generally interact with ‘fairies’.
They’re a cute little feature that parents sometimes put into homes to entertain the kids, and can often be used to cover up existing holes in a prettier way.
Alternatively, it could be a delivery door, common in pantries of older houses. These allowed delivery drivers to drop off items like milk, ice, or newspapers easily without entering the house.
Although this is an internal door, it may have been kept after the home was extended, despite being unusable.
