As custom home builders in Houston, we’re often tasked providing solutions to everyday problems. One of the problems we’ve come across over the years has been that of toddler gates or pet gates. Until now, there really was no practical solution.

Parents and pet parents have always needed a way to keep children and pets out of certain areas of the home. Whether for safety or to protect an area while the pet is left alone in the house, pet gates rarely provided a reliable solution.

Kids and pets who are determined enough can easily move or destroy the removeable gates you find at Target and Walmart. The problem with these gates is there is no way to really secure them to the doorway without ruining the look of the door and possibly the door itself.

The solution to this problem is HIDEAGATE.

HIDEAGATE is durable, sleek interior gate that folds into the doorframe when it isn’t in use.

Designed by a Drew and Tiffany Walling of Dallas, HIDEAGATE is not only practical but beautifully designed. When it is in use it looks great, and when it is not in use, you can’t see it.

“We certainly didn’t want a cheap-looking, hard-to-operate pet gate from a local store,” Walling said, “So we created HIDEAGATE, a streamlined gate that collapses and tucks neatly inside of the wall when not in use. HIDEAGATE even can be installed at the top and bottom of staircases.”

HIDEAGATE is made with 14-gauge steel tubing and is powder coated. It can withstand daily wear and tear and gnawing and chewing. HIDEAGATE adjusts to fit most standard door frames and can be installed alone or in conjunction with a pocket or swinging door.  When not in use, HIDEAGATE simply folds into the doorframe. HIDEAGATE’s sleek, modern design makes it both fashionable AND functional – a popular addition to any home.
