You have likely seen a wall safe before. While they are often depicted in movies behind a tiny painting, this isn’t always going to be the best hiding spot. If you have invested in a wall safe, you may wonder how you can keep them safe and concealed. Believe it or not, the painting idea isn’t that crazy. Here you can find more information about protecting and hiding your wall safe.
One of the most common and popular solutions for hiding wall safes is to hide it behind a large or heavy piece of furniture, such as your couch or even a piano. These are items a burglar would have a hard time moving on their own. The only disadvantage of this hiding spot is that it may also be difficult for you to move alone if you need to access the safe. If you are going to be getting into the safe often, then it may not be the best option.
In a Secondary Bedroom
In most cases, this is going to be one of the last places a burglar would think about looking. Most people will usually put their safe into a master bedroom closet. Since burglars are going to have a limited amount of time to enter into the house, they aren’t going to take time to check every single room well. In fact, they are likely going to make their escape before going into a different room. However, if the secondary bedroom is a child’s room, you may want to think twice, since this will put them in unnecessary danger.
Behind a Bookcase
While this option can take a bit of ingenuity, if you are willing to put some time and effort, it can be an effective hiding spot (not to mention pretty awesome). You can glue a row of your old books to one another and hollow the pages out. This will help you create a space that is big enough to accommodate the wall save you are installing.
Behind a Painting or Other Wall Hanging
People really do this and it is very effective. If you were robbing a house, would you try to move every painting or item hanging on the wall? Chances are, the answer is no. That would be a complete waste of time and increase the likelihood of you getting caught. Also, when you use this method, you will be able to access the safe pretty easily, which is an advantage.
As you can see, when it comes to hiding a safe in your home, there are several options. If you use a bit of creativity, chances are you will find a great location for your safe in your home.
