Many invest in such safes to keep their precious items from prying eyes and hands. But where should you put a safe so your belongings are as safe as possible? Even though there is no perfect spot in every home, some rules can help you pick a good spot.
Have you ever thought about where to put your safe at home? You may think as any spot will do, but some places are better than others. Each house is unique. So no spot can be guaranteed to be ideal for every home. With our expert guide, we can give you tips on where to put a safe and explain why it makes a difference.
Look for a spot that gets little traffic or is hard to find. It should be out of sight and built into the house. We suggest putting it in a coat closet or closet in a guest room. The safe should be built into the wall and covered with a door that matches in, or furniture can be built around it to match the closet.
The second greatest danger to your residence is fire. The most secure place for placing a safe is where two outside walls meet. It offers the greatest security and support for a heavy safe. The safe should be kept on the ground floor of a home with multiple floors. Moreover, if your home or condominium has an emergency system, installing it within the sprinkler's range is a good idea.
Ensure the safe is placed above ground level so your valuables are not damaged or lost in a flood. In places that flood often, it is best to build a concrete or steel base for the safe to stand on. The base can be fixed to the house so the safe is at least two feet off the floor. Even though fire safes are usually water resistant to some degree, it is best to store important papers, electronics, or photos in a waterproof container just to be safe.
No matter where you choose to install, it is essential to keep the following in mind:
• Ensure the safe is firmly attached to the floor or wall to avoid theft.
• Consider hiding the safe with furniture, rugs, or other things to keep people from breaking in.
• Avoid placing the safe in areas prone to natural disasters, like basements that are likely to flood or places that could start a fire.
• Talk to a professional locksmith or safe installer to evaluate your case and suggest the best place to install your safe.
