Interior design and architecture aficionados everywhere love a good jib door. Known for their essential “invisibility,” jib doors are flush-mounted directly into the wall allowing them to blend beautifully with their surroundings. The most subtle jib doors often lack any visible hardware. They’re understated, secretive, and positively chic! Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorite examples of jib doors for inspiration. Which would you choose?!
