3 Considerations in Placing Your Home Safe
Safes add security to your life. To improve on that security, your safe should be placed strategically.
The first consideration in deciding where to place your safe is whether or not you will need to access it frequently. If so, then it should be close to the location of its respective use. For jewelry or cash you may want the safe to be in your master bedroom or your office. For guns in case of an emergency, the safe would probably be best placed near your bed.
If you do not need to access the safe as often, then a remote location would probably be a good option, such as a spare room, garage, etc.
Another consideration to take when deciding where to place your safe is the type. If it is decorative, then in plain site may be an obvious choice. For more discrete options, floor and wall safes are available, once again taking into consideration how often you will need to access it.
The last consideration to take when deciding where to place your safe is the weight. Safes more than 1,000 pounds should be placed on the ground floor. If lighter or maneuverable, then placement on a raised floor is an available option.
