You don’t need to own expensive jewelry or have a large stash of cash to justify installing a safe in your home or residence. For some, the convenience of keeping valuables close at hand is important. For others, they wish to live in peace of mind knowing they have a designated place to store valuables such as papers and documents in the event of a natural disaster. And, for hunters and residents with little ones, they use a safe to secure and store weapons such as guns or knives.
No matter the reason for needing a home safe, one of the hardest decisions is determining exactly where to place that safe inside of your home. Convenience is important, but you’ll want to be sure the safe itself and your valuables are located in the best place to ensure they are protected from the three biggest threats: burglary, fire, and flood.
