Hidden entrances don't always need a secret block to put your feet in, you can build a proper door with a heavy-weight pressure plate in front to let you in. Although it will be a secret door you can always craft a hidden security area just across the entrance.

It's going to be a super creative idea to hide your chests under a TV and a secret little cute bedroom hidden under a bookshelf linked with a staircase.
