I guess that the place is supposed to be warded against standard teleportation? If it is I’d look for a window – never take more trouble than necessary.

If I do have to use the door then it would depend on the size of the keyhole and whether there’s one of those inspection hatches anywhere. Travelling as dust or smoke has its limits, so one factor to be taken into account is whether I’m supposed to be a prisoner and whether the characters who think they’ve got me know what those limits are. It can help if they give me a couple of arias about that, but I’ll try to get them singing anyway.

One very useful trick is to listen and to find out what the hierarchy is, what the relationships are, who’s the most vulnerable and everything else I can; (OK, I do that anyway, but sometimes it’s more helpful than others.) Someone’s going to open that door sooner or later. Then – smoke out past them (or cast the illusion of smoking out past them and then get on with things once they think I’m gone; putting a nice bright light in dustmotes in the area where I’m not really teleporting is useful for that) - or just have them think they’re seeing an empty room and get out while they’re gaping, or groping for an invisible singer or whatever.

Of course, if I can get someone to sing about where the key is it could be easy. Just teleport a Minion or two to the key and leave the rest of the job to them.

Where ARE you? you only show up just as I'm getting dinner out of the oven!!!!

Over here, you have the exterminator in BEFORE there's a problem - or rather, around. He sprays the foundations outside to keep bugs out of the house, he checks for termites and if there is evidence of rodent activities he will either set poison (which we don't allow since it's warfarin that can poison the cat if she nibbles on the dead critters) or rat-catcher traps (baited with peanut butter because rodents LOVE peanuts - guess which lucky family member is the one selected by majority vote to remove the used traps from the premises... go on, guess).

Answer to the question asked ...

Is there anything in the room with you? if so, break it in half. Since two halves make a (w)hole, you climb out the hole. Problem solved.

I'm curling up laughing, here - that's better than my answer.

I've been in a set of fixes, including nasty eye trouble and now I'm desperately trying to clean a kitchen that had mice, cook a meal on decontaminated bits and write to keep this character in Theatrical Muse (the only chance left to write him.) I'll be back and chatting later and I hope you'll be around.
